what a team Johnson and Guidall. the book gives us a glimpse of Walt's upbringing developing a deeper bond for us the reader while we watch Walt work 'undercover".
the interview with the author is not to be missed!
The characters are the drivers in this series. I want to keep up with them so want to order the next one soon. Walt is the star but his interactions with Vic and 'the Cheyenne Nation" are the best parts for me.
George Guidall is an excellent narrator and his voice is perfect for Walt -- getting older, a bit tired, a bit cynical but a nice sense of humor
I loved it! Even with Vics vulgarity. I love the story line and all the characters in these books. It makes me want to read it again or get another one .......can't wait to purchase another book!!!!!
Craig Johnson had set the bar extremely high with hid first four books so eventually there had to be a bit of a drop off. Still very good and worth reading.
At my age, I forget endings so might listen again in a few years!
Craig Johnson's plots are always good and I can trust him to give me an entertaining
time. The Characters are all interesting and compliment one another and the setting
takes me to a different place, a place I have visited and can visualize though his words.
You have so many good performers, George Guidall is fabulous and always makes
the stories come alive. The TV series is good also and we actually signed up for
Netflix because they optioned the series.
Almost, but I listen at night so fall asleep and have to back peddle!
Walt Longmire is consistently entertaining, thoughtful, and thoroughly likeable. Under- sheriff Victoria Moretti is a wonderful counterpoint. They make a great team.
Highly recommended. Unfortunately, I have not read/listened to the Longmire series in their written order. Fortunately for me, it did not make me love the books, the characters, the stories any less. However, I would have liked to experience the stories in order so I could watch the characters grow more naturally through the writer. The books are not given a series number on the Audible site so I was clueless. I guess I could have used Google to do a search but I didn't know I was going to enjoy the books so much until after I read/heard a few. As a fan of the TV show, which A&E stupidly discontinued, I should have known!
Anyway, I believe regardless of where one starts in the Longmire series, the wonderfully rich and deep characters will get you interested in any just about storyline. And even if that isn't your true cup of tea when it comes to books, then the interesting and unusual story lines will. The stories are set modern day but are interwoven with Native American culture and the ranching/cowboy ways of the west deep in the heart of Wyoming.
This particular story finds Walt going undercover in a small town when his sixth sense is tickled after receiving a most unusual murder suspect in a more unusual set of circumstances. As usual, Walt meets some interesting characters along the way, meets up with and gets help from a growing cast of intriguing friends and/or acquaintances, and pulls at the tiniest threads of evidence to piece the puzzle together.
There is great drama in the development of the investigation and quite a bit of action as he wraps it up. I love the fact that it's a unique yet realistic scenario throughout and I for one have never read a Walt Longmire book where I said, "no way that could happen", or "that's just completely ridiculous".
I hope you'll take the time to listen to this book which is, once again, brought to life with an outstanding performance by the narrator. Bravo!
The fact it brought a modern day problem (dissociative drugs) into a unique storyline fitting to the Longmire series.
Yes, I have listened to about 5-6 so far and he is absolutely outstanding. He brings the characters to life:-)
