Characters continue to develop and the story holds your interest as the Sheriff of Absaroka County sovles another murder in Wyoming
Sherrif Longmire is so laid-back...good at his job but not obsessed with it. His friendship with Henry is endearing because they've been friends so long and are not mushy about it, but you know they would do anything for each other. There is a bit of romance in this one, mixed in with a very good mystery.
The narration is perfect for this book. Guidall's voice sounds older and rural and there was no doubt which character was talking.
I can't wait to "read" the rest of the series. This one's a keeper.
work as an artist and art restorer. read at least 48 books a year, because I can listen while I work.
I happen to adore these western mysteries, and have read all of Craig Johnson, may his books continue to be offered on audible... The narrator, George Guidall is excellent, and perfectly suited to these books. the only caveat is that Mr. Johnson employs, the phrase, "I thought about it" a little too often. Otherwise, these books are all terrific. the sherif of Wyoming (mythical county, but real locations) is honest, flawed, and noble. love him.
I was not too impressed with DEATH WITHOUT COMPANY. The story was predictable. So many occurrences prompted me to say, ???Yeah, sure.??? I didn't like the wise-cracking that frequently was part of dialogues, even when very serious events happened. One of the toilet-mouth characters didn't add anything to the story. And some of the characters didn't seem real. I do give credit to the author, Craig Johnson, for writing with wit. He kept me listening even though I thought about quitting a time or two. I had some enjoyment/attraction for the major character, Sheriff Walt.
Great "who dunnit" book - not obvious like most.
The characters of this series are detailed and likable.
Cannot go wrong with George Guidall. He is by far my favorite narrator.
I have enjoyed everything by Craig Johnson and there could be no better narrator for his stories than George Guidall.
These are not "cowboy" stories, but they have that warm, cozy feel. Walt Longmire is not a young stud, but he portrays such a comfortable person I would love to have him as my friend. These people are not perfect, but they are real and you care about what happens to them.
You can't loose with tis choice.
Great book. Enjoyed the characters (except the Maggy thing got boring --legs, lips and lipstick - her lines struck me as Harlequin Romance for Men) but it was a great plot. Kept my attention and I plan to get the others in the series.
This is a plea to Mr. Johnson to write more of these stories. I enjoy them from cover to cover...can't get enough.(See my reviews of his other books)
