    "Box's Open Season"

    CJ Box did it again. A great story to get lost in. I can't wait to hear the next Joe Pickett adventure.

    "Good story, interesting characters, poorly written."

    Could have been so much better. Too much telling and not enough showing. Dialogue really poor.

    Any additional comments?

    I very much enjoyed this book. Joe Pickett is a great character. He is honest, dedicated and an excellent family man and game warden. He has a wonderful family (wife Mary Beth and daughters Sheridan and Lucy) and a great dog (labrador Maxine). In this first book of the series we get to know him as he struggles on a low salary doing a fantastic job; however, he is having difficulties that get worse and worse. The reader is excellent. I will continue with this series.

    Story
    "pitiful"

    i have listened to other books by c.j. box and this one is totally different!! Totally boring, drags while your main character is determined he is also barney fife. you are constantly hit over the head by endangered species warnings, hints, and public announcements. Gee do you think it has anything to do with the story? And there are abt 10 more chapters i just can't wade through them.

    Dark at times, but Box works it all out nicely. I liked the progression of the characters and the many options they're faced with.
