George Guidall does such an excellent job of narrating that sometimes I wonder if reading the printed word would bring the same nuances.
This particular book centered very much on Walt and his journey up Cloud Peak. As others have mentioned, I missed the conversation with the other usual characters but they were on the periphery.
Hell isn't always hot.
This book was nearly 13-14 chapters of possible bodily peril and because of the tenseness of the situation I found myself alternating between shutting it off to give my heart a break and not wanting to shut it off at all. Walt is up against 2 adversaries - a murderer and the very mountain he has to track the man on. I didn't think I was going to like this but it has a deepness to it that I truly appreciated. Even with the perilous situations, Walt's humor does come through and that is the charm of the character.
George Guidall was invented for this author.
When the wild fire almost swept the lawman away.
Impossible rescue and an improbable helper in a typical Walt Longmire thriller.
Felt the wind and cold on my back in June!
Great story,, marvelous narration and the book can stand on it's on though it's in the middle of the series. The depiction of this blizzard is just great. My hubby and I pulled out of Jackon's Hole with clear skies and made it in to Rawlins with a blizzard on our tail. Listening to this with ear buds just made me shiver. With Walt climbing higher and higher up this mountain trail sometimes you might wonder how much of his encounters are real, how much is the cold and how much is 'the spirits'. Was Virgle really there or not? This one is centered on Walt which was good, but I did miss Vic and Bear.
In the top 10
Walt Longmire. It was when Walt was alone that the author used his imagination the most. So vivid and never boring or slow.
Walt but he also does a wonderful job with the deep tones for Virgil too.
No. I listen to audio books to fill the time on my way to and from work.
This particular book was filled with so much imagination. All the references to "Dante's Inferno" made me want to read that too. This is a book I could read again (and again.)
Loved it! Character driven. It made me laugh out loud more than once. I thought was the best in the series.
As with all the other Walt Longmire stories by Craig Johnson, I enjoyed this one as well. This story is different than previous Longmire stories though, and not what I expected. It is more about Longmire determined to get the bad guy no matter what it takes, and less about him joking with his buddy the Cheyenne nation (Henry Standing Bear), and getting bailed out by his close friend in times of need. I've enjoyed past stories that illustrate the interaction between Longmire and his potty-mouthed deputy, his help in the Sheriff's department, and his down-home interaction with the odd assortment of people in his county, but this story heads in a different direction and rather quickly.
Craig Johnson introduces a dose of Indian supernatural experiences that was probably what it would take to bring down an unrelenting psycho killer that is not only dangerous, but creative in his attempts to stop Longmire. Although there is a sprinkling of some humorous discussions among the various characters, this book is about a more focused man - Walt Longmire, that is doing his job above and beyond the call of duty. I kept finding myself saying Walt, wait for the back-up help you need, but no, Longmire wasn't waiting for anyone. He was a man on a mission and would not stop no matter what threats he encountered.
The story seemed short, but then again, I like hearing George Guidall not only narrate the story, but an excellent narrator that brings Walt Longmire to life. The story traverses a different direction than most of the Longmire stories, but I liked it none the less and hope that Craig Johnson has another story ready for me to download soon.
I love anything I can't figure out halfway through the book
It is just an overall great book, like all the Longmire books
I love the characters in the Walt Longmire series and George Guidall is the perfect narrator.
The values of the characters.
On the mtn. with the "dead" Indian
Walt's keeping on keeping on for his daughter.
I love this series, but this was not my favorite.
I haven't read a Walt Longmire (Craig Johnson) book that wasn't a great read. Good characters, people I wouldn't mind getting to know.
Just have the audio versions
between the story line and narrator they were able to keep the story up beat
It would be better in a one sitting as a long trip as you can forget which characters are in the mountains or in the mind.
