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.
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.
