Wolves by Cary Griffith Review

I won a copy from Goodreads First Reads. 

"Sam Rivers, biologist and special agent for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, has a penchant for understanding predators. His expertise finds him returning to Defiance, Minnesota, his boyhood home on the Mesabi Iron Range. There, he investigates wolf depredation of local livestock. But the mysterious death of his estranged father lands the agent on a case unlike any he's worked before. His knowledge of cold, wilderness and wolves was bred in his bones. He learned his lessons well, and now he'll need to use them."


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 he can enjoy it all. He fake his death so he can get insurance money. He's going to fake his friend's death so he'll get more insurance money. 

Sam's knowledge of the wild will certainly help him in Wolves. It's relevant to the story, but it gets quite annoying, especially when he goes wolves this, wolves that. 

If I was to recommend this book to someone, I'll recommend it to my worse enemy because it is such a boring read. Not only it is annoying, IT IS BORING! Let me empathized: BORING! Avoid this book at all cost!

Wolves is, as I said before, an annoying and boring read. It's brings back fond memories of The Call of the Wild (which is a finer book than this one). Wolves... You know what? I have enough of Wolves, this book is already too much.

Rating: One out of Five
