I thoroughly enjoyed the thriller; "Hell is Empty", book 7 in the Walt Longmire series. The author, Craig Johnson, wrote an excellent story. It was also really enjoyable to listen to because of the narrator George Guidall. He IS, like one reviewer stated, Walt Longmire.
I especially liked the return of the character, Virgil White Buffalo, from the 4th book "Another Man’s Moccasins." It was unclear to me whether Virgil was only a spirit guide or really present with Walt Longmire in the story. That was the mystery for me!
If you are a fan of this series, this may be one of your favorites!
Longmire continues to attract me. He is complex and spiritual without being pretentious.
Longmire and Henry
Plot kept me there but it needed to be digested with each twist and turn so I liked it better as something to savor over time.
Craig Johnson has done well with this character. I like that he develops Longmire in each book and want more of Henry.
So far I have listened to all the Walt Longmire stories, in order, and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them. Notwithstanding the TV portrayal, George Guidall sounds like Walt Longmire should sound. The story leaves one wondering whether a man could withstand the hardships encountered in this tale. However, Longmire is the man to do it.
I enjoy the Walt Longmire characters and the pace of the books. This plot was the weakest of the Walt Longmire books I have listened to.
Like many of the books in this series, the plot - while plausible and well constructed -- isn't really all that important. The story is in the journey and the characters. Once again, Craig Johnson has found a way to insert a believable but strong mysticism into the story line without ever once stepping beyond the realm of events that are possible without any supernatural help. The reader is left convinced, but without needing to leave behind their sensibility. The adventure is wonderfully told.
Once Longmire leaves Virgil's cave, the line between the storm, the convicts, Native Americans and reality blur
Dead Or Not Dead? Are you sure?
This was my first Longmire book, it will not be my last!
Say something about yourself!
yes,I will listen to the entire set once I finish the last 2 books. Love the writing and the narrator, LOVE Longmire
I've listened to the first 7 books and George Guidall captures Walt and makes him come alive. Just Awesome
These books always make me laugh out loud, not just a chuckle, but out and out laugh. Craig Johnson has a great sense of humor
I'm glad I didn't let some of the negative reviews of this book stop me from downloading this one. I loved it as much as the others. I happen to like the thoughts that go through Walt Longmires mind. Its part of the humor.
Please keep writing more Walt Longmire books
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.
