As the Crow Flies was wonderful. Once again, Craig has us listening well into the night. The only thing bad about this whole operation is that now we have to wait until June for the next book to come out. This is the best book we have listened to so far.
The interaction of the characters.
With the sound of a voice you seem to get a better idea as to who the person is.
I have found that everything Craig writes is wonderful, and can't wait until the next segment comes out.
I have previously read all the hardcover versions of the series from my local library, but was unable to quickly obtain As the Crow Flies and opted to try the audio version, which was very enjoyable.
I enjoyed this installment of the Longmire series very much. Plenty of humor and a nice story. The narrator fancies himself to be Walt, which is, well, fanciful. Everyone knows that Robert Taylor is now Walt. Sorry, George. And as much as I like Mr. G, it's hard to listen to his female interpretation of characters. Love the setting in this one and almost forgot that Durant exists. Didn't miss any old characters will introduction of new ones.
I have enjoyed every book in this series and this one is no exception. Craig Johnson writes an outstanding story, fast paced at times but he manages to create believable and like-able characters.
George Guidall is of course always an outstanding narrator but I think the Walt Longmire series suit his style perfectly.
sheriff mentors the next generation(Indian )
I always look forward to Johnson's books. I listen to them as i walk in the park. The hour or so I listen at a time usually flies by.
I have listened mostly to him. I identify Sheriff Longmire with him, his voice.
The devotion of dog to the child.
Please write lots more and make available as audio books.
Wonderful, fabulous, amazing. I need to get a thesaurus out to find some more words. I love this series and have read/listened to every single one of them. George Guidall is also delightful and does a wonderful job narrating the books. Can't wait for the next one to come out. I love Walt's insight into people. I love his relationship with Henry Standing Bear, Vic, Ruby, and the older sheriff. The plots of Craig Johnson's books are great and the character development is really good too. I can't say enough good things about these books.
I have read all 8 of the Longmire books by Craig Johnson and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. With George Guidall narrating, you can just picture the characters. Hope Johnson writes another one very soon.
Retired law enforcement officer. Like action and detective stories.
First heard of Walt Longmire on the tv series. Loved it. Went back to the first book he wrote and have been listening to them in order. George Guidel does an excellent job narrating especially with the dry wit of The Cherokee. Never disappointed by a Walt Whitmire book by Craig Johnson. Like one of the other reviewers, "I wish Craig would write faster".
Well we’ve finally reached the book in which Walt Longmire’s daughter, Katie will be married. This book is the best one of this series in a long time, to my mind. Lots of Henry Standing Bear and Walt Longmire together-always priceless. Katie getting ready for her wedding with her future mother-in-law in tow. A new character, a Crow Indian Chief of Police for the reservation-a strong character who at first doesn’t want to show what she doesn’t know and therefore is hostile to Longmire, the horrible Red Dog truck, Dog, the animal. Besides for getting ready for the wedding, with some wonderful moments between father and daughter, we do have a case. Henry and Walt see a woman and child thrown off the cliff-at least they believe she was thrown or pushed because what mother would jump to her death with her child in her arms? The woman dies but her baby survives. At first they think it is her husband who killed her because he had abused her. But then he is shot dead as well. Walt and Henry and the new Indian chief work together to solve the case with the usual adventure and life-threatening ventures. Possibly my favorite so far in the series.
Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series is a new favorite. I picked up, Cold Dish, the first of the series in May prior to a trip to Wyoming looking for some "local color" before I went. Since then all my credits have gone to Longmire books! Johnson wraps mystery, humor, great characters, sense of place great story and pacing into a wonderful series.
