If I am not reading I am listening to a story sometimes both.
I read thousands of books ......this series just grabs me and I need to listen to every word in normal voice. The characters are full and you can count on them. Walt and Vic just compliment each other. This series is just different then most and I would love to find more like it.
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
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Another awesome Craig Johnson story about the lovable Walt Longmire that MUST have one or more sequels. Surely the story isn't over!
This one is a heartbreaker for the reader and for Walt . . . loss of a deputy and a child. . . both of which are deeply felt in Absoroka County, WY. Sure, the crimes get solved and the criminals punished, but the epilogue Johnson has written builds new intrigue that totally demands more of the story. . . and I am hopeful that Book 10 (and 11, 12 , 13 and more) are on the way.
If you haven't started this series, don't be afraid to do so because it sounds like a series of "westerns" and you are not a fan of that genre. These are contemporary stories set in the rural counties of current-day Wyoming (although Walt still doesn't carry a cell phone) and the interactions and relationships of the characters (and criminals) is very engaging.
Love all the stories and can't wait for more.
Really, what else is there to say? Johnson continues to turn out terrific books with a beautiful sense of time and place and with characters who are people you want to know (except for the bad guys of course!) I so enjoy the humor interlaced throughout and the telling could not be better done. Guidall is fabulous.
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.
I think Johnson and Guidall were put on this earth just to entertain us. I have purchased all of the books in this series and can't wait until the next one, which is a long time off. I don't know which book is best but this ranks right up there. Johnson takes you thru the entire rang of human emotions all the way to the very end. You can't help but love all the characters in this book mainly because of the way Johnson shows their love and respect for each other. I keep asking myself how do you come up with a beautiful, hard swearing cop from Philadelphia, drop her in Wyoming, have her fall in love with a small town sheriff twice her and make it work. I don't know but it does.
