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.
The Longmire novels all have strong spirit ties to American Indian cultures. This story ties Walt to his memories of Vietnam which fills in lots of background for the characters history.
As a Vietnam vet the story was written with assistance from someone who was there. A moving story told as only Craig Johnson can.
This writer just keeps getting better - and the narrator is fantastic. In my head, George Guidall's voice will forever be Sheriff Longmire - just as Will Patton will forever be Dave Robisheaux . . . the highest praise I can think to give.
I purchased a previous Walt Longmire Mystery and like it very much so I decided to buy a few more. I absolutely love the complex character that is Walt and the way he interacts with others within these books. The stories are always well thought out and believable and completely enjoyable. Nothing bad can be said of the narrations by George Guidall, he does the different characters so well! I can't wait to read the next one!
Terrific book; fabulous narrator; Looking forward to more of Johnson's books and more of Guidall as a narrator.
