I had been through a couple of really bad books right after I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (which I loved). I decided on this one as a lark and I am impressed. You won't be sorry. I do love a good vampire story that plays like a movie in my head.
I never hesitate to buy a Craig Johnson book through Audible because I know I will be completely entertained.
Mr. Johnson has the ability to make you feel like you are right there with the characters. He sets the scenes thoroughly.
George Guidall IS Walt Longmier. That is that.
I rarely listen to a book a second time no matter what the book is but I will probably re-listen to all the Craig Johnson/Walt Longmier books again.
He is absolutely wonderful.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a great story.
Sherif Walt Longmier (sp?) - the main character
I could listen to George read the phonebook.
Yes. I wanted to listen to the book in one sitting but I get anxious the closer I get to the end. I am really sad now because I have read all of them.
Craig Johnson has created a set of characters the I feel like are my friends. Who would have thought that I would grow to love a sherif, his Native American best friend and his assistant sherif (from Philly), like good friends. I adore these books.
I am so glad I listened to this. A lot of words and none of them wasted. A plot that kept me wondering which way it would go and an end that I I did not predict.
Good grief. Many, many words about not much. I stuck with this until I thought my ears were going to bleed. I may try it again later but I don't know if it was the reader or the story that turned into a gentle roar in my head. Either way, I give.
This book has one of the truest voices of life in the south that I have read in a long time. You won't want to stop listening. Even when the book is over, you don't want to stop listening.
This was one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. The format of notes, letters and cables is brilliant.
Not only the book enlightening and entertaining, the whole experience is enhanced by the narration is some of the best I have heard with any book through Audible. The entire experience was a joy.
How energizing it is to finally read a book that is written for fiction book readers! Not dumbed down. It took me quite a while to decide to read this (and only did after my daughter raved about the book). I think it was the title that turned me off. Imagine a murder mystery where you really don't care what happened to the murderer because you are so involved with the the dead girl observing the living.
