This is another winner in The Walt Longmire series.
I am convinced that these are better stories to listen to than to read in text. Though I have a different picture in my head Walt then George Guidall, there are only a few narrators on a par with him. You feel like you are there! His voice modulation, the tones and inflections are perfect.
The story wasn't quite as deep and moving as some of the others but it is still interesting and compelling.
I strongly recommend The Dark Horse.
I really enjoyed the story and the characters, and the narrator brought them to life. The voices of the different people were different and individual without being cartoonish, if that's a word.
I love to read!
This is not my usual genre (mysteries set in Wyoming solved by a local sheriff), but after reading so many great reviews of the series I decided to try one. I have enjoyed every book so far. The stories are so well written and the characters are so well developed that the reader is completely pulled in right from the start. Recommended for fans of mysteries.
This is a good listen. The characters Walt and Henry keep you wanting to hear more.
Henry, his gentle wisdom is refreshing.
I'm amazed how addicting he makes the characters. His reading of the characters make you see them in your mind. Love it. He really makes the characters come to life.
And the truth be told.
I have enjoyed all of the series by Craig Johnson. George Guidell gives each character a voice of their own. Henry Standing Bear is my favorite and has the best comedy lines.
First of all, I love the narrator, George Guidall. He could almost make any story sound good, but when you add such good writing by Craig Johnson to his narration, it can’t be anything but good.
I loved the part about the Dark Horse and Longmire which you will enjoy in the last third of the book.
You will not be disappointed in this Longmire story. I hope he keeps writing them.
So far this has been my favorite book of the series. I enjoy all the main characters and how they interact, although in this book we don't get to see much of Vic and Henry. As in the last book this one goes back and forth between the past and the present, although this time it's just a few days and is used to explain how Longmire ended up undercover. Another county sends a woman to Longmire's jail and he believes her innocent so he goes undercover to find out what really happened. We're introduced to marvelous secondary characters and even a few horses.
At the end of the book is an interview between the author and the narrator so you get to learn how the author came up with the different ideas for his books.
The narrator did his usual great job.
another nail biting book. Good plot and several surprizes along the way. Made you root for the main character
yes, went into detail as to what Walt was thinking as different things were happening
Walt riding the black horse in the dead of night
This story had a lot more interaction with horses then the other books in the series and that was fun to listen to. The love hate relationship that old cowboys have with their mounts is a tough one to capture with words but Craig Johnson hit the nail on the head.
Love him as the voice of Walt Longmire, I can't imagine anyone elses voice for the narration.
