Publisher's Summary

Retired Maine Game Warden John Ford has seen it all. He's been shot at by desperate prison escapees, been outwitted by wily trappers, and rescued scores of animals. As a tenacious and successful warden, he was always willing to spend the time needed to nab violators of the state's fish and game laws. At the same time, though, he wasn't a cold, heartless, go-by-the-book enforcer; he usually had a good quip ready when he slipped the handcuffs on a violator, and he wasn't above accepting a lesson learned as sufficient penalty for breaking the law. Ford is also a very gifted storyteller and he writes of his adventures in Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good, a collection of true tales, both humorous and serious, from the trenches of law enforcement, and also includes heartwarming accounts of his rescue of hurt or abandoned animals.

good book!

I really enjoyed this book. a lot of the stories were funny. This was a book I listened to with my husband. His dream job was a Game Warden.
Who would of know that this job could be so crazy, changing from day to day.
His job was never boring!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Short Homespun Vignettes of a Game Warden

If you could sum up Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good in three words, what would they be?

Funny most of the time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

John Ford. He's a "hoot" and a "blast"! Listen or read this work, you'll get the references! lol

Which scene was your favorite?

There are more than a handful, but I laughed out loud at the story about the deer on the lawn and John's uh, solution. That's all I can say, without being a purveyor of spoilers.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

More to Maine Than Steven King.

Any additional comments?

This was an enjoyable listen. An easy listen, just sit back and be entertained. Good stories, great narration.

Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too.
