    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend Open Season for its interesting characters and setting, but I kept wanting to push the reader to speed it up. I think he added an extra half hour just by his laid-back pace.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    If you like to be surprised, this one isn't for you, except for the ending, which was quite satisfying for anyone who doesn't mind violence.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Chandler’s performances?

    Not unless I hear a noticeable uptick in his reading speed.


    Do you think Open Season needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I'd be happy to spend more time with Joe Pickett and his family, but I don't think there's much more to add to the Open Season story line. I'd certainly enjoy learning a great deal more about the life of a game warden in Wyoming.


    Any additional comments?

    I use Audible books to lure me out of the house for a two-mile walk every day. Despite my dissatisfaction with David Chandler's reading speed, he and the interesting story got me outside and walking every day for two weeks, and for that I thank him and C.J. Box.
