    "I can not seem to put it down!"
    Where does Winterkill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a good story. To begin with I did not think that I would be a fan of CJ Box, but I really enjoy his Joe Pickett series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winterkill?

    The explosion of the compound and the death of little April.


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

    Nate Rama..... I enjoyed his characterization. I hope we see or hear from Nate again.


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

    Both.


    Any additional comments?

    Joe appears to be a good guy who tries to do the right thing regardless of the outcome. Very, very, very few people live life this way.

    "Enjoy the series!"

    My husband and I really enjoy these stories while driving. They are well written and very descriptive and aren't easy to figure out "who done it" which we like. Unpredictable and very enjoyable.

    "CYA"

    Joe Pritchard game warden, husband, and father steps out to do his job and law enforcements job in his corner of the world. Along the way he deals with a lot of good guys that are truly bad, and a lot of bad Guys that are not at all as bad as the good guys say the are.
    A great story about honor and doing what you say you are going to do

    "Superb Series"

    I love the Joe Pickett series! As a native born westerner, C.J. Box describes the area wonderfully. His storylines are very creative, and his characters are relatable. I enjoy stories that don't push the boundaries of believability.
    The narrator is extremely talented, and is consistent with the character voices. Oftentimes in narrated books I'm disappointed when the narrator speaks in the opposite gender's voice, but David Chandler is masterful. I highly recommend this series, each book is better that the one before.

    "Like the book but Joe needs to grow some balls"

    I won't give any spoilers since the whole April issue starts right off. Mary Beth is an educated woman, Joe maybe naive but not dumb SO WHY didn't they get a lawyer the minute April's 'mother' appeared in town. Then unless Wyoming foster's system is 50 years behind the times: you can't just go right in and take your child back. There are hearings, especially in the case of abandonment. That was my main problem with this book. If that had been done in the beginning then the whole April situation probably wouldn't have had the same outcome.

    Its a good story on the corruption of parts of our government-they partake in cover ups all the time as we the public eventually hear about well after the fact.

    Obviously there are 'survivalists' every where but they are not all bad, not all gunslingers. There are some that just want to be left alone but then step-in the others that want to blame them for every thing.

    And about Joe's balls: everyone else steps right up and says what they are thinking so why can't Joe open his mouth and just speak, stand up for himself and others.

    I enjoy the series for the wilderness aspect: the animals. I have been to Wyoming and Montana, camped there for extended periods years ago and loved it, when I was younger I wanted to move there. I just hope that as the series goes along that Joe becomes more confident and stands up for himself, speaks his mind.

    Sheridan is favorite character-I was her as a child- tomboyish-caring for the animals. I had a friend who was like Lucy who couldn't and still can't see past the makeup and the dolls.

    In this book my fav was Nate. I hope he comes back since they can't prove anything. He needs to teach Sheridan falconry, I know Joe says he will but that's Nate's job.
