As always, I loved this chapter of the Walt Longmire saga. The narration is perfect and the story has just enough humor to make a perfectly well rounded mystery.
Haven't read the print version
Yes...the rest of the Longmire series...he does a phenomenal job in all of them.
Made me laugh throughout.
The dry wit and humor of this book just makes it an enjoyable listen, as well as all of the twists and turns of the story and the people that make up the Walt Longmire cast of characters!
My name is Richard and I am an addict.
I can't say this enough, best modern day sherif novel I've read. The series is excellent, I just wish there was a discount for buying the entire series at once!
I really enjoy the author's attention to detail, which is so well written that I can envision the entire story unfolding in my mind in vivid detail.
Walt - because he's the kind of guy you would want looking out for you in a bad situation; and he's proven time and again that he'll lay his own safety on the line to catch the bad guys.
I think the narrator is perfect for the voice of Walt Longmire. If you have watched the TV series, the books are even better, although the TV series has done a pretty good job of getting the characters right. George Guidall's portrayal of Walt Longmire is spot-on; and his portrayal of Henry is very funny.
Crusty sheriff lays down the law in the high plains of Wyoming.
I am so addicted to this series that it is causing me trouble getting any work done! I'll be done too soon, and I can only hope there are more books on the way.
Have listened to a number in this series and I feel that they are becoming rote. Too much reliance on shoot-outs for excitement without much in the way of real mystery. Also, I find the main characters relationship with his much younger deputy, whose brother is engaged to the main character's daughter, a bit unbelievable.
Don't watch the T.V. show but I have read all of the books and this one had some parts that were so funny that I had some wonderful belly laughs!
The description of how "Grampus" got injured is a treasure and if it doesn't make you laugh out loud, you'd better have your funny bone checked!
I can't imagine anyone else doing Johnson's novels justice. I have a clear picture of each character because of Guidall's voices.
Wouldn't do it. No actors I can think of fit my idea of the characters.
This whole series is priceless and I thoroughly enjoy each one. I love that area of the country and appreciate the way Johnson portrays and describes it. Can't watch the T.V. series because the actors don't fit the picture in my mind of the people in the book and I enjoy "my" characters too much to sacrifice them for any actors.
Still love the interaction between Walt and Henry. Not sure about Vic. She has a crappy attitude.
Walt's empathy for his deputy.
There is a certain pace in his reading that is very believeable and has you totally wrapped up in the dialogue.
I'm reading Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series in order, and loving them all! "Junkyard Dogs" is one of the best - beautiful writing, funny in places and a great story. All enhanced by the outstanding narration of George Guidall. I seldom "re-listen" to books, but I expect I will, with this series.
I find I like reading these books in print a great deal. I think it may be a generational tick because I need more time to let memories roll through the language. This book is so strong in story and humor that the gorgeous voice of Guidall can hold everything in one place so well that the joy of a good story, a funny story, and the real pleasure of listening are a single experience.
