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!
The characters in this series are so real. The dialogue is very good. Well written. I like the main character. I can't wait until next month for my credit. Going to get the 3rd in the series right away.
I got interested in the books because of the A&E Tv series . I read the first one and am nowthrough the first half of the second. The stroy is interesting and the reader is perfectly suited to the character, both imagined and as depicted on TV. The stories diverge between the TV and written versions of course but parts of the show can be picked up in the book. The book, as ussual is better than the show, but I will continue with both because they are different enough to be interesting on theier own.
This series has all of the elements of a good who done it with the added bonus of coming off like a modern day western. the characters are rough and ready but also contemplative, real and human. the intertwinning of the indian folklore adds to the mystery to make a solid mystery with enough bonus features to make it very interesting bordering on historical fiction, if you're into that kind of thing.
if you're going to break the law in my County, keep looking over your shoulder because I will get you sooner or later.
i am glad 1that i found this series and look forward to listening to or rading the whole collection
All of the different possibilities, the twists and turns that keep you second guessing yourself
All of them, George Guidall is my absolute favorite narrator
Great narrator with perfect characterizations. I loved this book! Though I'd seen the Longmire series on A&E, I had not read anything by Craig Johnson. I will definitely read them all now. Great story, great mystery, rich and varied characters and a hero you can't help but like. Don't miss this one.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
I watched a series on T.V. this past summer called Longmire and was surprised to find it taken from a book series. When I was listening to the superb performance by George Guidall I was picturing the characters on the T.V. series. This story covers several generation and I enjoyed the culture information about the Basque, Cheyenne and Crow. The book was better than the T.V. show but the book has more time to build the characters in the story. There is some humor, action, suspense and a who done it, so one can not get bored reading this story. I shall try more in this series.
I've listened to many audiobooks and out of all of them, those by Craig Johnson are a favorite. I am spreading them out, resisting the urge to hear them all one after the other. Great series.
He has a down home like voice that fits perfect with the characters. He delivers the dry wit as a conversationalist, not an actor.
I laughed many times.
If you are looking for a good series with interesting characters and a bit of humor. Try Longmire out.
Retired law enforcement officer. Like action and detective stories.
Yes I would recommend this to a friend because I know they would enjoy the easy listen and simple but twisting story.
The dry wit of Bear.
The inflection and indian language.
It made me laugh out loud several times, although this is not a comedy.
The interaction between Longmire and bear is reminiscent of Spenser and Hawk in Robert B. Parker's Spenser series.

I listen to an awful lot of books. When I saw the latest Longmire mystery was published, I looked it up and am so glad I started with this series at the beginning. I am totally entranced with Walt Longmire's character as interpreted by George Guidall. I saw an episode of a TV show based on the series and they got it ALL WRONG. I toil in those fields myself, and I can't believe producers didn't study Guidall's work and realize that he had created the guy who should star in the show--screenwriters should also have paid attention to Longmire's fabulous sense of humor. Let alone The Cheyenne Nation, Ruby, Vic, the whole crowd is just wonderful to listen to. Previously I knew next to nothing about the "new" West--now at least I have a starting point to learn more.I'm listening to As The Crow Flies now--and it's as great as the others.
