    One thought on “Wolves”

    1. "Wolves" is an exploration in feral natures. The characters showing just as much cunning and tenacity, bearing just as much fang as the wolves themselves. Maybe more than the wolves, who seem downright innocent in contrast to the antagonists therein.Most importantly, it's a thriller that drinks easily.The simplicity of the landscape adds focus to the depraved as well as a fervor for the virtuous. Protagonists shine and villains disgust, but they often cross boundaries. There is grey matter enoug [...]

    2. I won a copy from First Reads.Lovely. Wolves is a story that reminds us of horrible days of reading The Call of the Wild because there's just too many mentions of wolves and dogs. Now, we're remembering Buck, this dog, that dog, this wolf, that wolf, and all the other stuff. What is Wolves about? Wolves, yes, but that's only a midget of what the book's really about. It's about Sam Rivers, whose father is pretty much the meanest and greediest guy around. His father wanted Sam's mother's money so [...]

    5. I really liked Cary Griffith's "Lost in the Wild". I had some expectations about this one with the extra research on wolves. I found myself wanting a little more on the wolves aspect but that was just me. A couple technical details may have been a bit of a stretch, e.g. listening to a car to car conversation while hiding behind some trees in a snow storm The premise that several greedy individuals could keep up such a ruse as they did, well, not much of a chance. The main character seemed reason [...]

    6. The novel Wolves, by Cary Griffith, has more bite than bark! Immediately, it sinks its canines in you and drags you off into the woods of a place named Defiance, nestled in the Iron Range of Minnesota. The accidental death of his father brings Sam Rivers, an agent of the USFW, to the town long since dead to him. Upon returning for the funeral, Sam finds himself knee-deep in more than just snow when a pack of wolves unusually slaughter his father's livestock. This book is filled with memorable ch [...]

    7. I received this book for free in a first reads giveaway.This book started off a little slow for me. A lot of characters were introduced in a short time. There is a group of bad guys, and it was hard for me to keep them straight.After awhile, the story really picked up for me. I liked the hero, Sam. Coming home after 20 years away. I really liked that he worked with the wolves, and I would have liked to learn even more about them, and conservation issues.By the end of the book, I was racing throu [...]

    8. I received this book as a First Reads Giveaway.I enjoyed the storyline very much. It drew me in quickly to the lives, lies and history of very memorable characters. In a very cold winter in Minnesota, humans and wolves are hunting. The behaviour of the wolves is understandable. (I hope Sam Rivers appears in another book.)

    9. I really enjoyed this book. Once it got going it was hard to put down. Felt like I actually got to know something about each of the characters and cared what became of them. I would definitely recommend it!

    10. Need a winter getaway? This book had me buried under the covers on a sweltering day as the evils of the Iron County Gun Club slowly unravel in frozen northern Minnesota. Sam Rivers is an exciting new character in this genre and I look forward to more of his adventures!

    11. finished very late last night, so, so, so good! A most excellent 5 star read. This book, is up for a Mn book award with two other favorite authors of mine:/
