Besides incessant listening to audiobooks, I also read on my Kindle at night, birdwatch, garden (roses, daylilies), and do genealogy.
I would rate it a solid 3 1/2 stars, but no more. I am way out of sync with the other reviewers on this one and am wondering why. What am I missing?
I thought the narration was perfection for all the characters. George Guidall did a masterful job and I can imagine no one else doing as well.
However, I found the story somewhat slow moving and do I dare say--not so interesting? As I got toward the end, it got a little more involving for me. It is not that I haven't experienced Walt Longmire. I watched some episodes on television, the few that I found, and really enjoyed them. I was just expecting to care a little more.
I can't add much to all of the reviews here, except to say a heartfelt thank you to Mr. Johnson and Mr. Guidall for a truly enjoyable experience. I've read many of the Walt Longmire mysteries and have enjoyed them all, but this one was somehow darn near perfect in my opinion.
Say something about yourself!
Only listen to books
George rocks Walt Longmire. If he doesn't narrate them, it won't be Walt.
Finished this book yesterday, after listening to the whole set of books, I re-listened to the whole set again. Now the withdrawal is setting in. Best books I've listened to
Yes, to help me remember more about each of the characters.
Walt Longmire is my favorite because he balances all the action and characters.
He is a great narator. When I listen to him tell the story I am very happy with his representation of each of the characters and I can immerse in the story without having to give the characters the attributes that bring them to life in my mind.
I was disturbed when I thought Double Tough was dead.
I have not yet been disappointed with one of the books in the Longmire series. This one and book 8 are as good as any of them to me. I feel like all the base characters are like family. I look forward to more Longmire books.
I just love Walk Longmire, Henry Standingbear, Vic, and the gang. I never tire of Craig Johnson's stories of Apsaroka county.
You know, I love George Guidall and have bought several other audio books for his narration. For whatever reason though in this book he sounded, well, tired, which made Walt Longmire sound tired and old. Not bad enough to where I didn't enjoy the book but I think we may be at a point of needing a new voice for Walt Longmire :(
Always gave me a chuckle at the wit
This is the first time I've given a Walt Longmire/George Guidall anything less than a 5 star rating.
George Guidall does another outstanding job of narrating the Walt Longmire series. Craig Johnson can grab a listeners attention with his detail and writing abilities
I was disappointed by the last Longmire book, but this one is back to the high-quality of the prior books. Great character maturation, tight believable story and as always, the performance of George Guidall is fantastic.
Yes, but it would help to have read at least some of the earlier works to be grounded and know who the players are.
I like George Guidell's voice and the inflections. He is one of the "old guard" but does it best. I could listen to the dictionary if narrated by George.
This one is a little different than the books that came before - not bad, not good just different. The subject may have been done before, but it is still appropriate for the area.
Craig Johnson has done a great job with this new book. Good content and a lot of Vic and Henry in this story. If you liked the first 5 installments, you'll like this one.
George Guidall has the Longmire series down pat....you'll love it.
