I don't normally listen to "self help" books so I as far as those types of books go I would put it in the top 10.
About the chicken's always drowning when the floods came and the wife advising the husband to switch to raising ducks.
none really stand out that I can recall.
Probably the law of intentionality - you have to focus with intent if you want to grow.
Would like to listen to it again. It is about how you have to take control of your life with purpose and intent and not just let time go by. Not only do we need to take a more active role in our personal development and growth but we are here to help others achieve their best as well.
Yes, Rummel really brought the characters to life and was a joy to listen to.
Fell in love with Frank Bellarosa, made me want to meet him, have dinner with him, and more!
Most memorable was when John was at Frank's house having a cigar and getting to know more about Frank. I also loved the bar scene at the country club where Frank wasn't welcome, when Frank got arrested, and more.
Would be a spoiler alert if I told you.
This is a classic and a must read for all. Just a great, epic story.
I love Connelly and the story was fine but I thought it went on for too long.
Much prefer the Harry Bosch series
Narrater was good, he did a fine job with the different characters without being annoying.
2/3 worth listening too, 1/3 worth skipping.
A fine read/listen if you are bored and want to give it a try.
I wouldn't consider the audio edition better or worse, it's all a matter of preference and situation whether one reads or listens. I find I get through a book faster if I listen to it because I can multi-task. Depending on the narrator sometimes it's more enjoyable to read.
Hunger Games - young adult heroes and storyline set in the future.
Beatrice/Triss was the main character and you grow to care about her and her survival skills.
If you enjoyed Hunger Games and Twilight you will like the Divergent series.
I just love Walk Longmire, Henry Standingbear, Vic, and the gang. I never tire of Craig Johnson's stories of Apsaroka county.
You know, I love George Guidall and have bought several other audio books for his narration. For whatever reason though in this book he sounded, well, tired, which made Walt Longmire sound tired and old. Not bad enough to where I didn't enjoy the book but I think we may be at a point of needing a new voice for Walt Longmire :(
Always gave me a chuckle at the wit
This is the first time I've given a Walt Longmire/George Guidall anything less than a 5 star rating.
It is so unnecessary to narrate audio books with, "Harry said," "Sally said," " Said Mary," etc. It got so annoying where every sentence was introduced or ended with so-and-so said that I returned the book
Longmire, you rock!
Since Walt is in the big city of Philadelphia, I was trying to think of other mysteries based in Philly I can compare it to. But Johnson just puts such a unique spin on the story I really can't come up with anything to compare it to!
The personalities of the characters with his great narration. He really, really makes the Longmire series come alive.
When the horse died, but I am always moved anytime an animal dies in a story, LOL!
Just have to read the books!
I recommend alll of Craig Johnson's Longmire books and all books narrated by George Guidall.
All of Johnson's stories are different. This one was about sex trafficking and took the reader into Lonmire's past as a Vietnam vet. I love getting to know more about Walt. He is such a fascinating character! Lots of twists and turns keeps the reader engaged and wanting to know how it ends.
Longmire, Henry, and Vic are all my favorite!
Your past will find you and follow you.
Just read all of Johnson's books and listen to all of Guidall's narrations :)
Yes, it was well written and narrated and gripping story told from the first person view of a holocaust survivor.
The details of what it was like to live in a concentration camp.
Yes, listening to all the Craig Johnson/Walt Longmire books, This is how I discovered George Guidall and I am keen to listen to all his other books.
No, nothing extreme, but was hard to "put it down." It's a short listen, 4 hours, and worth every minute.
I'm always fascinated by people overcoming the most tragic of circumstances, but they can be tough to listen to as they can be depressing, but I enjoyed this book. It was gripping but always sad knowing that humanity can be so cruel to one another. It was inspiring to hear how Wiesel overcame the hardship of the labor camp. A couple of other great books to listen to (or read) about the holocaust is Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl and Schindler's List by Thomas Keanelly. These three books will always stay with me in the back of my mind as an inspiration for overcoming the worst of human conditions.
Top 10, but considering the four or five books by Craig Johnson I've listened to so far they are all in the top ten.
I mostly love how all the Longmire books are narrated. Guidall does such a fantastic job with the different personalities and voices. Truly a pleasure to listen to. Craig Johnson's wit is always great entertainment. Each of his books are different in pace and organization even though most of the characters are the same. I like how he went back and forth from past to present in retelling the story's events.
Longmire as always, but Henry Standingbear is always impressive. This book was mostly Walt telling the story.
No, not an extreme reaction, but burst out with a chuckle frequently.
Anyone who likes witty mysteries and wants bit of a western, cowboy, sheriff, Indian, and spunk thrown in would like these books. Guidall is truly a wonderful narrator. I've listened to a couple of his other books and will continue to explore his narration.
