    "It' s a question of what you have to do, what you have to live with if you don't." Sheriff Walt Longmire is reading A Christmas Carol in his office on December 24th when he's interrupted by the ghost of Christmas past: a young woman with a hairline scar across her forehead and more than a few questions about Walt' s predecessor, Lucian Connally. Walt doesn' t recognize the mystery woman, but she seems to know him and claims to have something she must return to Connally.

    Story

    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.

    Still stinging from his unceremonious ouster from the Garda Siochana, and staring at the world through the smoky bottom of his beer mug, Jack Taylor is stuck in Galway with nothing to look forward to. He is teetering on the brink of his life's sharpest edges, his memories of the past cutting deep into his soul and his prospects for the future non-existent.

    Story

    Awful... No real mystery, no plot, no solution, just drunken stupor. Could not understand the accent. The book just meandered.

    Story

    Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bernard Malamud's first novel is still one of the best ever written about baseball. His story of a superbly gifted "natural" at play in the fields of the old daylight baseball era is invested with the hardscrabble poetry, at once grand and altogether believable, that runs through all of his best work.

    Story

    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!!!

    With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you - especially when it’s sold off piece-by-piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them.

    Story

    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.
