Craig Johnson writes good stories, good characters and good dialog. I have enjoyed every one of his books and look forward to the next one. George Guidall does his usual great job of narrating and acting the book and characters perfectly.
It's hard to pick a favorite among the Longmire series. They are all pretty unique in setting, tone and devices. But this is a really good one. Buy, Listen, Enjoy.
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!
Just love the narration, the whit, mystery, and charm.
I listen/read a lot of mystery books and Craig Johnson with Walt Longmire makes me think of a western Sam Spade.
Has to be Walt Lonmire.
It's all just a great story.
Personal, intuitive, and a fun read/listen.
I truely enjoy listening to these books. Walt Longmire is such a great character. He is wise, funny, and surprisingly complex. The narrator does a great job too.
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
This is the second in the series and it did not disappoint! Great characters and plot, wonderful narration! I'm hooked on Sheriff Walt Longmire. . . there's something so endearing about his gravelly voice and self deprecating ways. Bear, Vic, Ruby. . . love the way the author has created such depth for the whole family of Longmire cronies!
Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
I think Craig Johnson is a great writer, and not just because his books have some of the longest epilogues ever! Action sequences in the Walt Longmire series are frequent and are described with heart-stopping tension. The characters stay with you - they are warm of heart and rich in self-deprecating humor. Even minor figures are fully and humanely drawn.
Those who really dislike graphic, bloody detail may have reservations about this series. However, in my opinion, the decency of the main characters and the genuine portrayal of friendship and respect between people in and out of law enforcement makes up for a bit too much gore.
Despite what must be a missing section of this book (I caught up to the action pretty easily, tho the lapse was momentarily disorienting), "Death Without Company" is a tremendously exciting listen. And, again, kudos to the excellent reading of George Guidall.
Finding out more about Lucian just made me like him more.
The first time I listened to George I didn't like him, but I went back and listened again and then I started liking the way he was telling the story, more and more.
Lucian always makes me laugh!
