I enjoy the character and his sense of humor.
All the different people could be seen in your minds eye.
I would recommend this book because I like the author and the narrator. The story carries you along and the plot line wiggles enough to make it interesting. I like the descriptions of the Wyoming country, the small town images are real.
I enjoy Mr. Guidall's voice, he performs the characters "in character" but not to the point of using falsetto for the women. He is good at what he does!
My husband and I have spent the past few months reading the Walt Longmire series. Each book is a fantastic read. Craig Johnson does a terrific job with character development, always building upon the past storylines, which is one of the reasons we like the stories so much. You become involved with the characters, constantly wanting to know more.
I found Junkyard Dogs was easier to follow than The Dark Horse (the previous book in the series). I wish the book had been longer, but I guess that just leaves me wanting more. We can't wait to start the next book!
This particular book had me laughing from almost the first sentence. Walt interacts with the most interesting lot of characters including his junior high English teacher, her son, the junkman and his more than interesting family. Add in Henry, Vic, Santiago (who is fighting his own demons) and this was a most excellent visit with Walt and the folks of Absaroka County. Craig Johnson's descriptions can almost make you smell the "municipal solid waste facility".I can't wait for the next book.
Craig Johnson is one of those authors who writes with compassion, insight, and humor. He also writes with sympathy and understanding about the west, about Wyoming, old people, women and the 'Cheyenne nation'. Throw in the fact that he is a very good writer indeed. So in Junkyard Dogs we get (at times) a knee slapping description of a bizarre family who runs the junkyard, a story of retired romance, and a continuation of the saga of the Durand sheriff department. George Guidall, for me, IS Walt Longmeyer..so much so that I find it hard to actually READ a Johnson book without hearing his voice,
If you don't like this recording, you are probably one of those terribly politically correct snobs or someone who wants blood and guts all over the floor...(I know books like that too :>)
The opening scene
yes...he is wonderful
Johnson can make me laugh and feel sympathy (without being maudlin) in the span of a few pages.
I enjoy this series so much! Never a dull moment! The junk man was a real hoot!
Say something about yourself!
I would definately recommend this and any of the Walt Longmire stories. I enjoy the wit of the author and just as much, the way they are read. The characters are believable and I enjoy the obviously well read author's observations. He is always self-effacing and wise at the same time.
Longmire with Henry Standing Bear as a close second.
Just the Longmire series. It took me a little while, with my first read to get used to his pace, but I am there now and I always have a hard time waiting for the next.
This is book 6. I have read them all now and I am going back and putting a word or two in here and there. What do you do when you find a thumb in a junkyard? Walt knows just what to do and does it so well. How does Guidall do it??? When I am listening to him read Johnson's tales of Walt Longmire that's who he becomes for me and tomorrow if Flynn came out with a new book read by Mr. G then presto chango he becomes Mitch Rapp. Great Book with wonderful close knit characters.
Having to read it - won't transfer. Email response from you didn't help 1 iota!!! Get someone who knows how to trouble shoot.
No, I love this author. I had to buy the book to read it. Craig Johnson is a great writer and I can't wait to see the TV show Longmire.
YES. He was a great reader for this book - at least the other 4 that I could get to copy to my iTouch.
I'm still reading it and so far enjoying it all.
I need some help getting my iTouch to work on your site. Can you add it to your list of Devices please?
I agree with Kathy from Florida, Craig you need to write faster! the narrator is fabulous!. I can see this as a TV series. Keep up the great work!
