It's been a long time since I read this book but I have read the entire series, up until the most current book and I really like it. I love how the series is set outdoors in the different parks. If you like C.J. Box, then you'll like Barr too. ( )

This is one of the series I fall back on when I can't find anything from my to-read list on cd at the public library. The other is Carl Hiaasen. I was disappointed with this because I thought it would be more about the wolves and the ecology of the park. I wasn't pleased with the actual nature of the crime. I listened to this on cd, and ended up feeling like we spent too much time in Anna's head. It occurred to me that if I were reading this on paper, I might move through those passages a little more quickly, but with the audio version, there is no changing the pace. I can't believe this is just occurring to me now after having listened to sooooo many books. ( )

I like Nevada Barr as an author and enjoy the Anna Pigeon mysteries. Winter Study started a bit slow compared to some of her books and it took awhile for me to really get into it. I think there could have been more about the wolf study in the book but enjoyed the descriptions of Isle Royale in the middle of winter. ( )

The first of the Anna Pigeon books that I really did not care for. There were too many characters that I didn't like - and not enough info about those I did. At one point I may have wanted the Wog to eat them all. I think I need a break from Anna for a bit. Her poor ankle. Did someone break Nevada's? ( )

Anna Pigeon. It is January, and Park Ranger Anna Pigeon is sent to Isle Royale in Lake Superior to learn about managing and understanding wolves, as her home base of Rocky Mountain National Park might soon have their own pack of the magnificent, much-maligned animals. She?s housed in the island?s bunkhouse with the famed wolf study team, along with two scientists from Homeland Security, who are assessing the study with an eye to opening the park each winter?effectively...
