The Longmire book series just keep getting better; makes me want to visit Wyoming and ride a horse.
While I wasn't crazy about the plot, an "okay" book by Craig Johnson is better than 99% of most other authors. The lesson about "how not to clean a chimney" (kerosene, grandpa and a rope tied to a car) still makes me laugh just thinking about it.
Craig Johnson's series just keeps getting better. Although the flashbacks to Vietnam were mostly sad, it helped to show how Walt got to be Walt and why he & Henry are so close. As usual, the supporting characters are unique, such as a 7 foot Indian with hidden depths.
At first it was strange to have Walt & company running around an eastern metropolitan area, but the characters stayed true to themselves. It was also enlightening to learn more about Vic's family- explains a lot.
While I really enjoy the "Walt Longmire" books, it's the whole cast of characters that make this an amazing series: Henry, Vic, Ruby, Dog.... Even when the plot involves chasing murderers, there is humor and great one liners.
This is another good Longmire story, although parts the storyline are a little depressing. However, there is humor in the variety of characters and the narrator is excellent.
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.
Good story; I had no idea what would happen next. I enjoy the complex relationship between King and Maxwell, although I don't find it plausible that they work so hard to keep it platonic. Also, it was so good to have the suspense and mystery without endless graphic violence.
As usual, Craig Johnson brings my favorite Longmire characters to life, with suspense and humor.
John Grisham was one of my favorite authors for many years, with A Time to Kill, The Pelican Brief, The Client and the Runaway Jury. I had hoped that the sequel to A Time to Kill would be as good as the original book but after hating most of Grisham's recent books, I was doubtful. I enjoyed the southern setting, the legal plot (basically can a poor black woman get a fair trial in the 2012 south) and the main character Jake who is flawed but trying. I thought the only weakness was development of the female characters - no depth, especially with Jake's wife.
I just couldn't get into this book. The writing wasn't bad but I didn't care what happened to the main character. He was wasn't likable to me, so I gave up half way through.
