It is nice to have even a short story from Craig Johnson, about Walt Longmire. I have been reading books that some could say were boring compared to the sarcastic witty banter in all the Longmire books. This story is no exception. Laughing a the interactions of the characters one minute, crying the next. Until I started this book, I did not realize how much I missed Walt.
Awful... No real mystery, no plot, no solution, just drunken stupor. Could not understand the accent. The book just meandered.
The screenplay for the movie beat the book hands down. The book had no direction, and no point. If you want the story of "The Natural" told with an inkling of entertainment value WATCH THE MOVIE!!!
As much as I like the character of Raylan Givens, this book was an impossibility to keep up with, having no point. When The book ended I was terribly surprised. I thought " the end? where was the story"? The story bounced around more the a basketball during march madness. It was very hard to follow the four or five story lines going on at the same time. It seems that Elmore Leonard like the have characters reoccur. Much of the story was the second season of "Justified." The story just seemed to ramble on, not much different that strolling through the mountains of Kentucky. I listened to the book between two of Lee Child's Jack Reacher stores. I much more like the narrator of the "Reacher" stories to the narrator of "Raylan" Brian D'Arcy James' voice became irritating after a while. His southern accents sounded like a non southern actor trying to act southern. The narration did not work. I was truly disappointed. A waste of time and money.
