Thank you for an awesome story. I actually teared up at the end. The characters feel like they are part of my family, they are written to be realistic such that they have strengths and weaknesses.
Craig Johnson is a wonderful story teller who is master of using his characters. The only negative was Vic's limited role. Otherwise, an outstanding book!
His voice is soothing and very much Walt. This reader make you see the character in your mind. A different reader would not bring these characters to life in the same way.
Yes, the story was left open and with many questions,
I've thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. The one before this was good, but i did not think was the best. This one is pretty damn good. I must say however, i felt there was one weak point in the end that bothered me a little, so i didn't give 5 stars, but otherwise, this is a great listen. I'll be back for more. Recommended
Don't know as I have not read any of the Walt Longmire Books and don't plan to. Can't imagine NOT having George Guidall bring Walt Longmire to life.
Yes I have and George Guidall is excellent!
The whole story....Walt never gives up!
Highly recommend this series!
Listening to Hell is Empty actually was not enjoyable, but I loved it! This story deals with the horrific murders of a serial killer and the author digs deep into his mind. It was hard to listen to some of it and, unlike previous Walt Longmire novels, there was relief but no joy at the end of the story. Good people are still gone.
The author weaves together many background stories and perspectives into this book and you really have to pay attention! I used the 30 second back feature on my ipod several times!
One of the Walt Longmire TV series episodes is based on this story. However, it is not nearly as complicated or dark as this novel!
I'm a professional dog trainer who loves to read. I have degrees in English and Adult Ed. I love well written books that take me away.
Every book in the Longmire series is an invitation to escape the rainy West Coast, where I live, and relocate in the land and culture of Wyoming in the company of real, complex men and women. Love this world, this landscape, these people - the TV series doesn't begin do it justice!!! I've listened to the entire series and love this book in particular.
Overall this was a good novel, but it just went on too long. Walt is battling the cold and the snow as well as the novel's bad guy, and it's almost as if the novel eventually freezes to death. Don't get me wrong. It's a good read, it has lots of great information, the humor is still there, but for me, the longer the novel went on, the slower it became. The climax of the novel was good, but overall I found the novel a bit unbelievable. How much punishment can one man take? Even so, I found this novel much more believable (and enjoyable) than the episode from the TV series based on this novel. I highly recommend the novel--it's an absolutely vital link in the chain that is Walt Longmire--but it could have been better. Hence, the three stars instead of five for the story. George Guidall was amazing, as always.
