4.0 out of 5 stars Free Fire...commence!, 16 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Fire (Joe Pickett series Book 7) (Kindle Edition)
Before I start, I should say that I haven't read any of Box's books before this one and I'm English.

I only mention my nationality because there's only really one thing I could find to complain about with this book. That's the way that nouns are used by the author as verbs by adding "ize" on the end of them. "weaponize" being one of a few examples. This appears common now in the USA, so really, I suppose, who am I to complain?

With that out of the way, I really did enjoy this book. It's evident that this isn't the first outing for these characters, but re-hashing the previous isn't a problem here. There are a few references to the past where needed but this novel excels as a stand-alone story. Box characterizes (see, I'm getting into the swing now) very well and the story is believable. It also develops nicely, grabbing and keeping your interest. The only real deviations are where he waxes lyically about the setting of the story, Yellowstone Park and it's surroundings. If you're going to have a story break, you could do a lot worse. It doesn't come across as a travel advert for Yellowstone, but you do develop a yearning to go there. Perhaps I'll add it to the list of things to do before I die.

To summarise, an excellent book. Wish I'd read the previous one. In fact I think I'll look for more of his work.
