I can't imagine the printed version being better than the audio version. George Guidall's delivery and timing is perfect. He really makes the characters stand up on their own. If I was reading, instead of listening, to this book I don't think I could give it the same punch that he delivers.
Believe it or not, this series of books reminds me of the Stephanie Plum series. Instead of Jersey, it's Wyoming. Instead of Mafia, it's Cowboys and Indians. While maintaining a serious and interesting story line, there's enough humor and comic relief to give the book a soft edge.
Although George Guidall has an impressive list of books he has narrated, the only other books I have heard him read have been Stephen King's Dark Tower series. He did a wonderful job with these considering he had to fill Frank Muller's shoes. His performance in this book is just as stellar. I really loved his adaptation of the indian characters, especially Henry Standing Bear.
Certainly! This is a story that will have you wearing your mp3 player in the shower so you can find out how it ends.
While not all the Walt Longmire books are as good as this one, it's still a great series and I'm looking forward to the next one. This book is a credit well spent.
I just finished this book. My next listen will be...
You just can't absorb it all in one listen. But even if you think you can, this is worth two, three, five listens? It's like a good movie. You will want to see it more than once.
If you haven't added this title to your library yet, I suggest you buy right now!
Sure...you got to love Scott Brick. He could read a phone book and make it sound exciting.
I'm not a religious person and I must admit I knew next to nothing about the Mormons going into this book. But I like Jon Krakauer's style and have enjoyed some of his other books immensely so I decided to give this one a chance. I'm glad I did. Some very interesting stuff going on here and Scott Brick keeps it entertaining.
