Joe Pickett - a depressed wimp? Crazy talk. In Joe Pickett and his family, C.J. Box has created men and women of character and integrity in the wild lands Wyoming. Joe is a Game Warden whose strong moral code is born out in his work and his devotion to his family. No superheroes here, just real people in situations that will educate and entertain. This is the first book in the Joe Pickett series - read and enjoy!
Joe Pickett is the new, by-the-books game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming.
Easy to read and interesting. I found myself skimming some of the descriptive paragraphs, I just couldn't get into the authors details. I felt sorry for the hero, the situation he was living in and the way he was treated by his coworkers and mother-in law. The mystery and the situation was interesting. I really liked how the author acknowledge the two sides of the endangered species and hunting issues. I will read the next in the series
Blerg. This was so disappointing that I couldn't even get through to Chapter 3. I have abandoned it. And will be returning this book. Unfortunately, Joe Pickett is just too depressing as a character. Oh well.
Read it because of the great reviews here. Very disappointed. Ineffectual, wimp intimidated by the people he is supposed to be stopping from poaching, by his mother-in-law, and other law enforcement officers. He spends most of his time feeling inadequate as a husband, provider, and father. This is nothing like Johnson's Walt Longmire series it has been compared to because there is nothing funny, the other characters are flat, and even the dog isn't interesting. I applaud the effort, but I'm sick of characters who spend their lives feeling put upon and depressed.
Loved it. Let my household duties go as I sat with this book in my hand and my cup of coffee by my elbow. It really held your attention!
This book was amazing. Life like characters and a plot that really gets your attention. Loved it!!!!!
Great read. Joe Pickett is a very likeable character, likewise his daughter Sheridan. Loved the book and looking forward to reading more of his novels.
Open Season is the first of the Joe Pickett series featuring the murder solving game warden. There’s a good mystery that revolves around an endangered species. Passages of the book are very simply written almost as though they were intended for young adults. Box does telegraph who the bad guys are fairly early on. Probably he was just learning his craft at the time. However, I found this one essential to understand Pickett’s family situation and it was a pretty solid story at that. If you have read others in this series and enjoyed them then Open Season is a must.
