There are only a handful of things you can count in this world, and Walt Longmire is among those. The ending was one of the best.
My favorite character is Walt. From the first book in the series, you can't help but fall in love with this giant kind-hearted man who makes everything right.
I've listened to numerous books narrated by George Guidall and have truly enjoyed everyone of them. In fact, when I've read all of the new releases by my favorite authors I find myself looking for new books to read based on those that George has narrated. I don't know that I will ever tire of listening to George. Thanks so much Mr. Guidall.
Loved the ending, and find myself reflecting on it from time to time.
I'm looking forward to the next Craig Johnson book, and sincerely hope that Mr. Guidall will continue to narrate those written by this author. Many thanks to Mr. Johnson for the heart warming stories, and to Mr. Guidall for the excellent narrating.
I highly recommend this audiobook. It is filled with suspense, believable situations and humor.
Cold Dish is a similar book with like situations and a little mystical happenings.
I have listened to many performances by George Guidall. He is excellent, I have never heard a book by him that is anything but excellent. He is, by far, my favorite performer.
I was on a road trip and wanted it to last the trip. The length of the book fit my needs and the action and performance held my interest throughout.
I thoroughly enjoy the Walt Longmire series. I have listened to several and enjoyed all of them.
english mystery fan
No. Most of the interesting parts were plot driven and they are too fresh in my mind.
The character of Virgil and his interaction with Walt.
Evil reveals itself in many ways.
I listened to all the audiobooks in a row so perhaps that made this one not as dramatic. I kept waiting for a twist or something new but it never came. Still a very good book.
Everyone is worried about Walt Longmire making it out of his situation except of course Walt, he just wants to do his job. Craig Johnson's descriptions of a wyoming snow storm makes your toes cold.
I have listened to numerous performances by Guidall and they have all been first rate.
Before you listen to this book you should listen to Craig Johnson's Another Man's Moccasins and The Cold Dish. One of the characters in Moccasins appears and is important in this book. There are also references to events in The Cold Dish but which can't be fully explained in Hell is Empty without re-wrting the Cold Dish. This is the fifth Craig Johnson book I have listened to and they make me want to go to Wyoming except Walt Longmire, Henry Standing Bear and the other characters in these books won't won't be there.
I listen while I work out and, if I want to work out longer, I know the book is good. No extended workouts listening to this.
Satisfied with ending.
Last scene with Walt, Henry and Vic.
Yes, but not this book. Possible actors: Walt - Liam Neeson, Tim Robbins, Ed O'Neill, a relative unknown? Henry- Graham, Geene, Javier Bardem, Goran Visnjic. Vic-Kaley Cuoco, Michelle Lombardo, Nikki Reed
I have loved this series but found this storyline to be a bit too s-l-o-w and repetitive. Walt is a favorite but I like his interaction with other characters more than I appreciate his solo ruminations.
I never hesitate to buy a Craig Johnson book through Audible because I know I will be completely entertained.
Mr. Johnson has the ability to make you feel like you are right there with the characters. He sets the scenes thoroughly.
George Guidall IS Walt Longmier. That is that.
Yes, because I like the whole family of characters and the location of the series.
Have read all Walt Longmire series.
He fills in the blanks of character description and adds personality to the characters. He also helps maintain the proper tone/emphasis to the conversations and remarks.
I missed many of my favorite characters from past books. This one was a bit too ethereal for me.
If you are a fan of the series you should listen, just be prepared for a long story of Walt struggling against the weather in exchange for a few good pieces of the series puzzle I am sure you'll need in the future. This 'book' could have been 3 good chapters in a legitimate book. Still love Craig Johnson's writing, it is very strong, but I think the puplisher was pushing for a book so they turned a few good chapters into one.
This story started out a bit on the grim side for my taste with a close up look at some hardened criminals, but quickly evolved into a story of mountain lore and adventure that makes the Walt Longmire series so engaging. There are many references to the previous Longmire stories, so this book may be tough to follow for anyone who hasn't read the other books in the series. But if you are already a fan of this Wyoming Sheriff, you'll find "Hell is Empty" to be a worthy addition to the series. I wasn't sure I was going to like the story when it started, but by the time I was finished it was one of my favorites in the series. The narrartor is well suited to the character and the story makes a great listen. I look forward to the next installment.
Suggest you start with his first novel to meet the characters, and they are characters. George Guidall IS Sheriff Walt Longmire. Even non-mystery readers will enjoy.
