    "Raw & Real"

    I absolutely love Joe Picket so perhaps I am biased, but this is is a extremely well read audio book, the listener can hear the pain and emotion that only David Chandler can display. The story itself is intense, real and super raw. It is graphic and cutting edge. I highly recommend!! A++

    "Really a great listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Plain Sight to be better than the print version?

    The way the author can discribe the simplest things for a eletric heater to the dust created by a spooked Pronghorn. C.J.Box makes the book very educational, very entertaining and suppensfull. Can't to listen to the next in the series. Recomend highly if you like to hunt and fish or concerned with the issues of saving the wilderness.


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

    Yes, Nate adds an edgy side to the story


    Which character – as performed by David Chandler – was your favorite?

    Nate,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes if possible. A great traveling book. Still great to listen in 10 to 20 minute intervals if you can shut it off. I will wait in my parking stall to hear what happens


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend it . The way he describes the sun, wind, light and feeling of the environment is amazing.

    Story
    "Very well written!"

    Wow! Some of the descriptive scenes were pretty brutal, but necessary to depict the story to completion. Well written and suspenseful! I enjoy CJ Box involves Joe Pickett's family in each book and describes how much bureaucracy there is within the departments of his job and the chain of command involved with his position as a Wyoming game warden. Each book of the Joe Pickett series gets better and better!

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    Story
    "Love reading stories set in my part of the US"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Plain Sight to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because David Chandler gives the characters nuance and intensity.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is, was, always will be Nate. While I love Joe, Nate has more edge. And the voice Mr Chandler uses to portray Nate adds so much depth. I cannot imagine how I enjoyed book #1 now.


    Any additional comments?

    While some may find the "old west" story lines to be fantastical, I love them. The truth is the rural west is perfectly portrayed by Mr. Box. And since I live in small town Colorado these books feel a bit like home to me.

    "Not my favorite but not bad"

    This wasn't bad. A little depressing to me. It seemed nothing ever went right for Pickett and his family. This wasn't a favorite, and if it had been the first I read I'm not sure I would have continued the series. But of course, now I have to keep reading to see what happens to Joe next.

    "Joe's great, even if you're not a hunter."
    What did you love best about In Plain Sight?

    The characters and storyline are full and rich.


    What other book might you compare In Plain Sight to and why?

    Reading the series in sequence adds the dimension of knowing the characters and watching them grow.


    Have you listened to any of David Chandler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    David's a real pro with great attention to voice alterations for the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled often during this book... and wanted to "hear" it straight through.

    "gratuitous violence"

    We put down this book after the first chapter for all the gratuitous violence and foul language denigrating women.
