No but I'll listen to others of the series
Walt is real and likable.
Guidall is always excellent and one of my favorites.
I listen only in my car
The overall would have gotten all stars except for the potty mouth Vic. She lacks likability and, in real life I would tolerate one like her for one minute. She is a detraction to the story
My father mentioned that he loved these books and they really are fantastic. Set in a small northern Wyoming town, Craig Johnson really captures the feel of a small town sheriff's life (I grew up in a small town with a sheriff similar to Walt Longmire). The writing is clever and entertaining. George Guidall is absolutely perfect for this narration.
I'm on chapter 11 and I find the author's style of writing to be confusing, particularly regarding the setting of many sections. I find myself often thinking, "Where/when the heck is this part of the story happening?" Rewinding to the beginning of the confusing part doesn't seem to help. The characters are kinda interesting, but there isn't enough action, detecting, or suspense for me to really say I'm enjoying this book. If it picks up and I change my mind, I'll amend my review.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this mystery, but was THRILLED with the narrator and the mystery itself. It was wonderful. George Guidall was perfect for the part and did multiple voices well. I can't recommend this book more.
I have loved everyone of Craig Johnson's books The narrator has the perfect voice for Sheriff Walt Longmire...and I love the characters in this series....
If you like HIllerman's Jim Chee mysteries or the Posadas County series by Steven F Havill, you will enjoy Craig Johnson's series featuring Sheriff Walt Longmire and set in contemporary Wyoming.
George Guidall's reading of this series opener is absolutely flawless. He's simply the best.
I just discovered this author and can't wait to read the next in the series. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a book as much as this one. It makes you laugh and cry. The narrator did a wonderful job - and I think it is one of the best listen's ever. .
I have listened to the first two books and I like Cold Dish better than Death Without Company but both I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters are fantastic and the narration is spot on. If you like this series you may like R.D. Wingfield's "A Killing Frost", a similar approach to the crime thriller with big characters and an ironic sense of humor, albeit British,, Killing Frost is still one of may favorite audiobooks.
I see all the great reviews and I just don't get it. I guess there must be something wong with me but I really need a story to move forward. This book started out out well and had my interest but then it almost stopped for at least two hours. Very annoying. Not a good book to keep a person motivated on long bike rides.
I love to listen and read books. I don't waste a minute...I listen when I am driving, cleaning, getting my nails done, etc. Fiction books are my favorites.... mysteries.
This was awful. I never finished it and I rarely put a book down. It was sooooo slow. It took 10 minutes of nonsense description for a person to enter a room and sit down. There were times I forgot why the person went somewhere because the minusha was so unnecessarially detailed that I got frustrated waiting for something to happen. I have no idea how it ended or what happened....I barely got past the middle of part I. Don't bother with this one. It was terrible. (At least the part I read was terrible)
