Characters are well developed, very real. The story does not disappoint.
Great story, hated to have it end
I first book I listened to by George Guidall was Hard Country. It was a five star performance, which led to to this book.Guidall has the perfect voice for the west, gritty,tough, very good nuance.
Yes, but I'm glad I couldn't. I really enjoyed every hour.
I'll listen to more of this series.
Yes. The combination of clever banter and a swiftly moving plot kept me riveted.
He is expert at reflecting the characters as written by Craig Johnson and showing just the right amount of emotion in his storytelling.
No. I just enjoyed it all the way through.
I'll be listening to more in this series.
Had me going in a completely different direction. I am such a George Guidall fan, his reading style keeps me interested like no other. Great story with George reading is a recipe for a great book.
These two are perfect, awesome author and ideal narrator. I really think George Guidall IS Walt Longmire, especially true if you watch the series on TV. They have to be the same!
Never was sure about "who done it," til the end.
Lonnie in the barn
Just made me want to listen to more!
Addicted to the series!
I would recommend this book and all the others in this series.The Walt Longmire character
is the most loving and caring fictional person that I have ever read about. He carrys over
in the same wonderful way from book to book. George Guidall is the best I have ever
listened to. He brings all the characters to life.
The relationship between Walt and Henry.
Choosing a favorite character is almost impossible. Maybe Henry and Walt because
they play so well together.
Maybe not all in one sitting, But I have listened to it a lot more than once.
Just tell Craig Johnson that I am waiting for the next in a great series. Also, tell George
Guidall that he will forever be Walt Longmire to me.
I felt pulled into the book.
The story has these moments that just make you laugh.
I have listened to George Guidall before and I enjoyed this one as much as I did his Tony Hillerman performances.
There are quite a few moments where you just chuckle and some good laughs along the way as well.
I haven't read the print version, but the narration here is wonderful.
The characters and their banter.
He voiced everyone perfectly. His timing is impeccable.
I'm not a fan of westerns, but this book delighted me. It has memorable characters that feel like real people you might meet or know. I also liked the banter between the main characters and laughed out loud several times. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
I was hesitant to buy, then left it sitting in my library for more than a month before starting what turned out to be a really wonderful listening experience. Now I want the remaining seven books in the Longmire series. Loved the characters, the narration, the descriptive prose that allows the listener to experience Wyoming. Fantastic book -- even if you don't consider yourself a "western" or "mystery" fancier. You won't regret it.
This was my first encounter with Craig Johnson. It will not be the last. I enjoyed this from beginning to end. I haven't read any of the print versions but will definitely add the author to my list.
I liked many of the characters. Sheriff Walt and Henry Standing Bear are both good. They seem like they could be real people. They reflect characteristics that make them endearing and aggravating at the same time. The long-standing relationship between the men adds to the story.
George Guidall made this listening experience super. He was excellent. You never have to wonder which character is speaking. His voices for the characters brought them to life and gave them added depth.
I listened to this over Thanksgiving weekend. I really wanted to tell family and friends to leave me alone. Obviously that didn't happen so I had to listen to some parts twice. I didn't want to miss anything.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story was good. The "who done it" wasn't obvious. I was as much interested in the characters as the mystery. I can't say enough good things about George Guidall. A bad or mediocre narrator can ruin a good book. He made a good book a great listen!
Another listener said it best: simply, I love hanging out with Sheriff Walt, Henry Standing Bear, Vic Moretti, and all the other characters in Absaroka County.
The story line is really good, and George Guidall IS Sheriff Walt; his voice and candence lend a persona to Walt that I don't think any other narrator could. The dry, humor (love it!) and laid back character interactions are flawless, and brought to life as flawlessly by Guidall. I hope he narrates all these books. I can't wait to find out what happens next, but I'm sad that this story is ending! And I can't wait to add the others to my library.
