"Edgar-finalist Box...expertly evokes Wyoming's landscape, wildlife, people and politics." (Publishers Weekly)
"Box puts on a hell of a show." (Booklist)
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++
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.
Yes, Nate adds an edgy side to the story
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
I highly recommend it . The way he describes the sun, wind, light and feeling of the environment is amazing.
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!
Yes, because David Chandler gives the characters nuance and intensity.
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.
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.
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.
The characters and storyline are full and rich.
Reading the series in sequence adds the dimension of knowing the characters and watching them grow.
David's a real pro with great attention to voice alterations for the characters.
I chuckled often during this book... and wanted to "hear" it straight through.
Narrator is always a pleasure.
You are absorbed from minute one.
love the character interaction.
The introduction to the characters.
Cannot wait to go to the next book in the series.
We put down this book after the first chapter for all the gratuitous violence and foul language denigrating women.
