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.

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!
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!
Listening while I run.
Johnson creates great characters and the narrator gave them a believable voice. I highly recommend this book - looking forward to listening to the second one.
Recommended by my sister, who first learned about Craig Johnson's books from the Longmire television series. However, being the book people we are, we had to read the books first. The Cold Dish was a delightful introduction to a wonderful series. The plots are interesting, but the outstanding aspect of the books are the interesting, well-drawn and compelling characters. Suggestion: Read them in order if possible. Continuity does add to the appeal.
The narration was at first unusual to me, as I listen to a lot of classic English literature with properly British narrators. But George Guidall grew on me very quickly and suits the tone and location of the books. He also is not distracting when he reads women's voices, which is tough to pull off.
Highly recommended. I listened to the entire series in a couple of weeks and can't wait for the next.
