Darn Good writing! Good writing is when you make it seem so "easy." Great characters, and always a top-notch mystery to solve in a wonderful location. There's always a philosophical bent to the way Craig Johnson writes, and his Walt Longmire character is such a likable, wise, and unassuming man that what he says sticks with you. Like good 'ol horse sense. His friends are just as amazing. The Indians on the "Res", their way of living their lives.They display simple wisdom. It just all works to make this whole series "Different."
You can't compare Walt Longmire mysteries to any other books because they are unique.
Walt, and really, all of them because they are all so unique, lol.
Yes, it made me laugh because there is so much irony in the things that are said. There are so many dry and funny things said. Cry? Yes, because sad sides of human nature are exposed.
I love this series. There are a few series I will always look for and this is one of them.
It was as consistant as all the books in the series. Kept me engaged. Very visual.
I could visualize the whole story
I couldnt wait to get in the car so I could keep the story going.
I just want to continue the saga.
Didn't read the print version
I very much enjoy listening to George Guidall perform, regardless of the author. In this book I like Henry Standing Bear and Walt's voices.
I love the whole Walt Longmire series
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.
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.
