Walt is my hero
George is my favorite narrator and the reason why I decided to try this book that I found on sale. I am so glad it was on sale because it is now one of my favorite series!!
I was expecting a mystery/detective style novel like those by Michael Connolly or the like, instead it's just a long winded story about a character I don't find all that interesting, with just a hint of a mystery.
If you're looking for a suspense or detective style book then surely don't buy this. You'll be disappointed.
pretty high on my list
Walt is my favorite character but Standing Bear is a close second
I liked the Bear characterization
Looking forward to reading more from the series
The only thing is that I knew whodunit all along. I liked the setting of the novel.i am thinking of reading another by this author just for the joy of listening to this reader.
I'm enthusiastic because now have a new author to follow. Good page-turner with decent character development. I'll look for Johnson again!
I got this one on a total whim. Seeing that George Guidall was the reader helped but I personally had not heard of Craig Johnson.
There is something very special about Mr. Johnson's style. There is a subtle elegance in his turn of a phrase, his cadence, and story telling. I really enjoyed the story but I was really taken in by Mr Johnson's smoothness. He tells a good joke and I'm sure I laughed out loud 15 times. He has a great way introducing characters and weaving them throughout the story. Highly recommend Craig Johnson.
Everything from Craig Johnson and George Guidall is excellent.
I love when Walt is on the trail to/from Lost Twin Lake.
Comfort of my own home
Kept me interested till the end.
I liked the sound of this voice
People's relationships in the story.
I don't know.
The narrator's pace of conversation add so much more the characters personality I don't think you would get if you just read the book.
This one didn't hold my interest to "not put down" like some of the author's other books.
Can't wait to listen to another on of his!
Anybody who loves a mystery that is rich in characters, this is a good bet. I've been a longtime follower of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch character and his ability to lead me down the garden path to the wrong conclusion or perpetrator. I was pleasantly surprised when I finished "The Cold Dish" that Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire also had me following a logical progression of clues, and had kept me on the wrong trail until the end of the book.
Actually I had three favorite characters; Walt, Henry and Vic. The sarcasm and humor at times kept me in stitches.
I grew up listening to radio programs. I've heard plenty of good voice characterizations during those years and sometimes the voice fit the character, and sometimes not so much. George Guidall's voice is perfect for the Walt Longmire character. Medium deep but with good resonance and just enough drawl and age to it.
There were times while out and about when listening with my ear buds on, that I broke out laughing out loud. I got some strange looks, so be warned!
