1. audiobook was a fantastic choice as this was just flat out awesomesauce, 2. what a great story (gotta like the woods though) 3. I can't wait for book 4.
This is a great one timer because the story unfolds and it's the kind suspenseful so once the cats outta the bag, ya know. I'd almost recommend skipp ...more

Daniel Woodrell für Arme, sehr, sehr Arme. Der Plot vielleicht ganz passabel, Figuren aus dem Klischeehandbuch mit der Tiefe einer Postkarte, stilistisch bestenfalls auf dem Niveau eines Schulaufsatzes der 8. Klasse.

Lamar's murder and the sudden onslaught of the snowstorm warn: Get off the mountain. But Joe knows this episode is far from over. Somewhere in the dense timber, a killer draws his bowstring - with Joe as his p...more
I'm not sure if I will have any spoiiers in here, so reader beware.
With Savage Run, I was really pretty disappointed in the way Box made conservatives, ranchers, etc...out to be murderers...It bothered me. I'll save that for my review of Savage Run, but I bring it up because in Winterkill, I appreciated his references to Americans, patriots, etc...in a GOOD light.
I could tell he tried to keep Joe Picket relatively neutral and that his response choiced were based on his ...more

review on winter kill
this book was great...at times but many times it would just seem to drag on until there was an exiting part like a gun fight. This book had a lot of potencial too i mean it wasn't bad but there were some times when I just wanted to throw it in the trash. Other than that the book was action packed and a fun read. The book for me was easy to relate to because Im a hunter and thats basically what the books about. the book would have been great had it not dragged on.
|The Recliner Book...: Just started the Joe Pickett series by author CJ Box. If you like outdoor adventure this is a good series. Very similar to the Walt Longmire series by Craig Johnson.||2||3||May 15, 2014 09:07AM|
