The descriptions of the Wyoming area put me right there. Since I'm from Utah, I've been to some of the areas mentioned in the book and this made it much more captivating. The story had a nice twist, but it was predictable, but still very entertaining. I highly recommend this book! I could envision Tom Beringer playing the part of the sheriff if it were made into a movie with all the clever quips and humor in the story.
Author Craig Johnson is one of my favorites! I have enjoyed the series and hope for more! This book is about modern life in Wyoming with the oil field, Cheyenne nation and the unlawful branch off of the LDS church. George (the reader) should of done his homework on the LDS religion and Utah, he mispronounced several common words in the west. Other than that, the story was well written and did not disappoint! As always, I enjoy the humor, vast descriptions and the characters in this series. Keep 'em coming Mr. Johnson!
A good tale about a boy growing up and all the obstacles, good and bad experiences, good and bad choices. The unabridged version is really long, the author takes a long time to get to a point, especially at the end. Rushes through some things and drags out others. However it is a good story, EXCELLENT reader!! Just way to long!
The humor and characters in this story will reel you in! Craig Johnson is a very descriptive writer and I enjoy his style. These Walt Longmire series are favorites of me and my husband. I enjoy his interactions with "the locals" in this book. The story will take a twist, a double meaning in the title!
Good story about being yourself. Gives an insight on how some highly intelligent men are treated unfairly in social arenas. The story is likable especially when Don realizes his own social short comings. Rosie, is a project Don has taken on to help find her father and she teaches him about "real life" in several social settings. It's a fun listen.
It was a good listen, the language was a bit crude but I guess it was needed to portray the characters particular moods each time. A love story gone bad. The readers were exceptionally good! It was a captivating story with twists, however, I didn't like the ending at all.
This book was way more than about I.R.A., it was about lives and crime associated with the upheaval during that time period. The writer took you there. I liked the humor, it was well placed when needed. The reader was awesome! I didn't like the ending, but other than that it was a good book.
My husband and I love listening to Craig Johnson books in the car, we love the humor and wit along with the descriptive details of the different areas of Wyoming. His story lines are very captivating and well written. The reader does an excellent job in portraying Walt Longmire. The books are way better and more interesting than the TV series. (Even though I am a fan of the show).
If you are a Billy Crystal fan, you will absolutely love this book! If you aren't, give it a try and get to know him in this sort of "tell all book". I knew he was a sports fan, but I didn't realize he knew so many athletes. Hilarious quips, jokes, puns and his voice impressions are the best!
I really like the Walt Longmire series! Craig Johnson does such an excellent job in portraying all the characters and the story with humor and wit. The plot is always very good! These books are so much better than the TV show "Longmire", but I like the TV show too! However, they only have 50 minutes to tell a story on TV, with the book you get details. I enjoy these books, so does my husband. We listen together while driving.
If you are a Dan Brown fan, this book doesn't disappoint. In my opinion it is not as good as Davinci Code, but merits a listen if you like his writing style. The reader is awesome with all his language accents!
