Craig Johnson?... No. Love George Guidall. Have many books he has narrated and I'm always impressed with his presentation
Sorry, Folks. I've read the reviews and maybe you all work for the publisher, but this is the slowest, hardest listening audio book I have ever listened to, and I have over 250 in my library. I've returned maybe a half dozen. The main character's "Aw, Shucks" droll and pace make this fingernails-across-the-blackboard grating. The pace of the narration is so slow as to make the process unbearable. Don't know if George was directed to slow the narration down to give the character that back-woodsy, folksy, western laid-back personality, but it's just annoying. I quit it after the first hour and 20 minutes. It made me not care about the characters.... any of them. Don't care if the crime is solved and don't care who did it. For all the accolades being thrown this writer's way, I'm at a loss to understand why. Waste of a good credit.
Except for the pace of the narration, George is always a great reader.
Husband, father, grandfather, writer, software engineer. I love adventure, science fiction, thrillers, mystery, and history.
Loved everything about it. Never dull, very honest, interesting and realistic characters. Can't wait for the next.
The television show brought me to the book series. Thoroughly enjoyed this listen. Immediately purchased next in the series. Recommended
Hi, I'm a cop, alumi of NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I'll give you guys the goods.
I knew about the books from the TV series, and while the TV series is good most times I can take it or leave it. This book however is another matter entirely. I cannot say enough good things about this novel it truly is a masterwork of literature. The way the author describes the little town where Walter recedes it nothing short of amazing. Given the fact that it's a small country town you might be think there is a certain lack of anything interesting happening in the novel and there would be points where it will drag, I know that was the case for me, but rest assured this novel will pull you in through the strength and charm of the characters alone. There is a complex interplay between the characters in this story Walt and Bear being the most lovable and interesting. George Guidall with that smokey voice of his is the perfect choice to narrate this masterwork. This story is a most have and it is and intelligent man's crime novel.
Excellent first book for Craig Johnson "Longmire" fans. we meet the sheriff of Absoroka County WY, and learn of his life, friends, enemies, and crime on and off the reservation
His husky voice, dry deliver, and convincing emotional content
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Interesting mix of Crime, Spiritualism, Western, Mystery, etc. While this was a decent enough story, I found it just a bit depressing. the justice system doesn't work and even the main character gets depressed.
Anything narrated by Geoge Guidall is worth listening to
Good characters, great decriptions of location and a story that kept you guessing

I have found a new series that I will keep listening to. I watched the show and finally tried the book. Very good
Yes, enjoyed the constant humor, great story and native American culture.
Epilogue very touching, sad and still humorous.

It is so!
LOL... book one yesterday & book two today
The story would stand on its own as a read, but the reader for the story is perfect for an added dimension.
Henry, again the interpretation the reader does of voice and speech cadence adds greatly to the story.
No I have not, but now will do so.
I am a fan of the TV show based on these books, which is why I originally purchased this book, I am now a fan of Craig Johnson and George Guidall and can't wait to listen to more!!
