Only because it is the next book in the series and I like to read them in order.
Unabridged!!!!!!!!! I love Nevada Barr's books and, from the others I've read, I'm sure there was much detail and richness lost in the cuts.
She was the best part of the experience. I enjoyed her performance through all the characters. She does a great job of keeping each character "in voice" so they are easily recognized and that adds to the overall enjoyment of the read.
Just the unabridged version would be enough. There are other books to continue with Anna Pigeon's story. But I would read it just to see what I missed...
If you check my library, you'll find I do series. I've discovered a dozen new authors I hadn't read before I started listening to audiobooks and I really enjoy series that keep the main character recognizable and growing throughout the series. I wanted to go ahead with Ms. Barr's books so I reluctantly purchased Ill Wind so there would not be a gap in the story sequence that would be referred in a later story. I was just disappointed because I know there was a lot of detail left out at someone else's discretion that I would have preferred to read for myself.
I loved this series. I like westerns of any era and interrupted some other series to finish Craig Johnson's books.
Plots were great. The 1st person is great at keeping my interest as he goes from one situation to another.
The voice--loved the gravel and inflection. Easy to create a picture in my mind of this lawman... He was great at portraying the emotions of Walt Longmire all the way through.
I did!!! All of the ones that were only 1 part anyway.
I'm on the lookout for anything else he writes and I hope he's not as slow as some of the authors whose books I've devoured the past few years. ;-)
