Craig Johnson is among my favorite authors now. I will continue buying his books. I like George Guidall's take on the characters. They seem almost real-very much like the cowboys I grew up with.
I truly enjoyed this book. The characters were carefully developed until each one breathed with life. The story is rich with detail, texture, and slow moving ease. George Guidall brings his genuine gift as a story teller drawing us in and adding dimension and accessibility to the characters. A very good listen.
Awesome narrator. The book was a litte slow( thus the 4 star rating), but beyond that,it was a very good book, Very descriptive, easy to lisren to and follow.
I listen to many, many books. I don't know what I would do without them. I decided to try this author, based on the reviews, and after listening to over half of the book, I had to throw in the towel. As hard as I tried, I just could not engage.
Sheriff Walt Longmire is a character that you'll enjoy spending time with. It took a little while to get the hang of him, but when I got to "a sheriff burrito," I knew this book had everything I enjoyed in literature. The other people who populate the high plains country in this book can be equally intriguing, particularly The Cheyenne Nation.
George Guidall could read the phone book and make it fascinating. He has an excellent vocal range, and even does a decent job voicing the female characters. It is very difficult to do a cross-gender voice that is both distinctive and believable.
This is an excellent traveling book, except that you may find yourself circling the block a few times to get to a point where you are willing to stop. These books can enliven the longest stretch of open country!
I never thought I would become a fan of a big western sheriff and an even bigger Indian but I am hooked on them. The narrator is great and perfect for this series. I hope we get another one soon.
I am 5 1/2 hours into this book and it is so boring I can't stand it. I chose it based on all of the great reviews, but I am not seeing it. In the 5 hours I have listened to it, there has been NO action. There has been very minor background info on an old rape case and then one of the accused rapists' body was found dead. The circumstance of this death is given only remotely. It is called in to the sheriff's office, so the reader is not even involved directly with it. So far besides this info, all that I am hearing about is the town sheriff and his love life or lack thereof and the construction improvements on his house. Nothing is happening, I am so bored. The story takes place in Wyoming where things may move a bit slow, but this is ridiculous. I keep trying to give it time to improve, but I am 1 hour from finishing the first half and nothing is happening.
