This kind of writing is not easy-- flashback, etc. It's really, really well-done. I lived in Asia for a while and he got right. I could feel it and smell it. Seriously.
I listen to an average of 100 books a year, and the Longmire books are some of my most favorite! I find myself going back and relistening (they have to be fantastic for me to re-listen) time and again. George Guidall is a brilliant narrator, also one of my favorites!
Craig Johnson's stories are set in one of my favorite places, the MT/WY area. I love the wry sense of humor he gives Walt's character. Walt is able to be sympathetic to others but yet has strong moral values.
While I love the sheriff, I enjoy Vic the undersheriff the most. She is quick of mouth as she doesn't put up with any bullsh*t from others. I would definitely want her to have my back.
George Guidall is an inspired choice of narrator. He makes Walt's character but is able to give the other characters enough inflection that you know instantly who is speaking.
Can't wait for Craig Johnson to write the next book.
I love the series but the stories performed by George Guidall are perfect. I've seen the TV version but it's not even close. Bear and Walt are a prefect combo and I don't think anyone could capture them better than Guidall. The underlying humor pulls them over the top.
I loved all the other Walt Longmire books but this one is not my favorite. I just couldn't get into the story at times. I honestly thought this one was boring. I suppose in every series that has to be one that is the least favorite and this is mine. George Guidell was excellent as always.
Walt Longmire was my favorite character, followed by Henry Standing Bear.
Good story, with asuperb dialogue between the characters. Nice ecomical prose. Seems to flow like Robert B Parker's books,
I listen to quite a few audio books since I drive for a living and have noticed that the artist narating the book can make it or break it, George Guidall is a perfect match for Walt Longmire. This added dimension helps Craig Johnson hit another one out of the park.
It's yet another chapter in the long life of Walt Longmire and lends additional background to him and reinforcement or perhaps definition of his wisdom
The story follows the charaters from one book to another but they don't loose integrety in the transition. Each story is a work of it's own and not dependant on the others to make an enjoyable experience. I can pickup book eight and then read book one and not be disapointed.
Many times, he never lets you down.
I think that would require a fair amount of thought and best left for another day.
Very enjoyable, I would recomend (and have) this series to anyone, my wife is a Walt Longmire addict
I loved this series. I like westerns of any era and interrupted some other series to finish Craig Johnson's books.
Plots were great. The 1st person is great at keeping my interest as he goes from one situation to another.
The voice--loved the gravel and inflection. Easy to create a picture in my mind of this lawman... He was great at portraying the emotions of Walt Longmire all the way through.
I did!!! All of the ones that were only 1 part anyway.
I'm on the lookout for anything else he writes and I hope he's not as slow as some of the authors whose books I've devoured the past few years. ;-)
I thought this book was a little slower than his others in this series. It seemed to drag on a big more than normal. I liked it overall, but as I listen to these books while driving I need some excitement and suspense to keep my attentive.
I would put this book a little lower on my "like" scale as compared to his others in this series.
George Guidall was on his game as he is always is. A great reader for sure.
It's in a series already.
