What drew me to begin listing to Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series was the narrator, George Guidall. I'd probably pay to listen to Guidall read his grocery list, not to imply that Craig Johnson's books are like
I've read all the books in he series except
I am a dyed in the wool Guidall fan and have listened to him for years. In my opinion he is the very best narrator one can find amongst all the recoded books narrators. I've recommended him to many others over the years, some who had never listened to a recorded book and all were
No, I don't read/listen to any books in that manner. I put aside 1 hour each day for audio books. The ones I've listened to over the years (I've been a recorded book listener for over 20 years) are so good I don't want them to end so I try to stretch them out.
I have listened to George Guidall read all of the Alan Furst novels that he narrated (nine) and in my opinion George Guidall's narration takes the novels from a 3 star rating to a 5+ rating. In this case (Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire) the novel itself (plot) is at best a 3 star, but Guidall turns it into a 4.
I rarely listen to a book a second time no matter what the book is but I will probably re-listen to all the Craig Johnson/Walt Longmier books again.
He is absolutely wonderful.
Even when they are bit off peak performance the Walt Longmire series are great stories, head and shoulders above most other books published each year. Just like Chinese food, when you are finished with one book you savor and recall the meal, then start looking for the next feast.
It ranks among the top few but to be honest I can't pick a number one, there have been many good ones.
Yes, you really want to know what is in store for the BFI (you will know who that is after you listen to the book).
George always does a good job
I have listened to 3 Walt Longmire books and this is the best, but the others are also good.
I listen to audio books while working.
That's all -- we enjoyed every one of his books and want both writer and narrator (such a good match for the character) to continue to be made into audio.
I don't know why this series, this author, and especially this narrator don't get more attention. They are truly wonderful!! The sheriff is not a young, hard, good looking law enforcement and the stars in the stories aren't jumping in and out of each other's beds. But this series is suspenseful, intriguing, and delightful to listen to. You won't waste your credit on any of this series!
Great book, great author and especially a great reader. As a person that lived in Wyoming; Cody, and spent a lot of time in the outdoors, I really enjoy the books.
This is an old salt of a detective who has been through the Vietnam war,but has a closet history
of education-there are hidden literary jokes, great observations of the people around him, wry comments on relationships with kids,coworkers. I picked it out on a whim, not expecting to love it, just a taste of a different genre.I ended up buying the whole series one after another, and can't wait for the next one,
I absolutley love this series! The narrator is excellent. I wonder had I come accross these stories in book form would I have enjoyed them as much as I do the audio versions--the narrator is THAT good! Even though this book is my least favorite of the series thus far, it still renders 4 stars. Do not 'skip it' as I have read other reviewers say. My only complaint, is that the stories seem successively shorter. I am trying to space the books as well as I can but they seem to end too quickly for my taste.
