Good Books Don't Promote Violence
I listened to this book in August and got chills during the part where Walt almost freezes to death in a blizzard. Engrossing story and an excellent narrator; Walt just seemed a little too much "Rambo" when he attempted to track down escaped killers without help but the strong characters are worth the read.
I just love the way Craig Johnson writes. His descriptions of certain events include not just the normal day to day but extremely heavy spiritual perception. I watched season one and two of Longmire on TV, I ran out of episodes so decided to go to the source. I am so glad I did because the books carry extreme detail and precise descriptions as to the characters experiences. The Native American lore never ceases to disappoint me. I couldn't ask for more although when a book is over I am a bit sad until I find another one in the series to listen to. I must also mention the narration, top notch and full of a tone that makes it all feel real. Thanks Craig Johnson, I look forward to many more of your works.
I can't really choose a favorite as everyone plays their part so well. I would have to vote for the sheriff but when Henry speaks there is no ignoring what he has to say.
His ability to speak the story like he is really there. A top notch narrator who should win an award for his work. He brings the audio book to life and I have no question in my imagination that everything spoken is non-fiction.
Absolutely. I break it up a bit as to savour my time with the book.
Keep it coming audible. I just bought a 24 credit pass to better make use of your extensive library.
I would have had more character involvement and left out a lot of the extraneous ramblings
Yes because I enjoy when he has some Indian mysticism in his books.
This is truly my favorite Longmire book so far ! The Indian spirituality and explainations
are incredible and Walt's determination to follow through when he knows his path make this book impossible to walk away from. I found myself completely absorbed in the story and George Guidall is the only one who could possibly do it justice.
I will be through with the series soon and I fear the loss I will feel! I hope Craig Johnson is writing like crazy to keep us supplied with these amazing books!
I'm seeing things
George Guidall is a wonderful narrator and the best for this series.
No I never have time to sit through an entire book in one sitting.
Entertaining, great visualization
The sheriff, of course.
I always enjoy reading and listening to Craig Johnson's Longmire stories.
By not being a fairytale
The lack of additional characters and the the way Walt "dies" several times , but keeps chugging along talking to spirits.
Hard to miss since there is mainly one.
He does a wonderful job on all the voices.
I don't know....
Looking forward for the next one coming out.
Yes, but with the advice to not get too bored during the "spirit contact" episodes. That part seemed to go on and on (and on).
Cut back on the spirit contact content - it drug on too long.
Fuidall always does a fine job.
NO, not if it means more of the spirit talk stuff.
I love books!
I'd have rated this one higher than 5 stars if I could have, it was that good. Craig Johnson really out did himself with this story. He left all of Walt's staff and friends behind and had Walt going up a mountain by himself chasing the bad guys when he had every reason not to. But then, that's Walt Longmire and the more we get to know him the more we like and respect him. I'd say that Walt sure could retire after this adventure and no one could fault him. But, I know he doesn't retire as I'm on to "As the Crow Flies".
