    "I just love this series"

    I read thousands of books ......this series just grabs me and I need to listen to every word in normal voice. The characters are full and you can count on them. Walt and Vic just compliment each other. This series is just different then most and I would love to find more like it.

    "I confess..."

    ...I'm a little bit in love with Walt Longmire. I just want to make this clear up front.

    The Serpent's Tooth is the latest (9th) in the Longmire series and it is excellent. I really enjoy Johnson's imagination and his wry sense of humor and he is a skilled storyteller. He also does a wonderful job of presenting both characters and places so that the reader feels "present" for both. Sheriff Walt Longmire is, of course, the heart of the story which has Walt trying to deal with a fundamentalist Mormon cult which has invaded his county and is causing a variety of serious difficulties. Johnson has written a great plot in this one.

    The story begins with Walt in an interview with an old woman who has angels in her house and ends with a hard tug at the readers heart, but in between Johnson pulls in murder and mayhem, love and loss and laughter and the usual cast of Craig Johnson's brilliant characters and ties them together with "can't stop reading" intensity. It may be my favorite of this series so far.

    George Guidall does an outstanding job of narration giving depth and individuality to each character. Even when I am reading a Longmire book (rather than listening) I can still "hear" Walt, Henry, Vic, Double-tough and all the other characters of Absaroka County, Wyoming in Guidall's voices.

    You don't need to have read any of the others in the series to enjoy this book (although you may be briefly confused when Walt refers to other characters by odd nicknames such as referring to his best friend Henry as "The Cheyenne Nation.") You will also not understand what he's talking about when he refers to events from previous books, but I don't think that will hinder your enjoyment. And if you like this novel, you're lucky, because there are eight more and I predict you'll be anxious to start at the beginning.

    Story
    "One of the GREATEST in the series!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Serpent's Tooth the most enjoyable?

    The beginning had great humor. I loved Vic, Walt's Under-Sheriff. The action in the middle. But the ending was unexpected and cannot wait for the next book. So Mr. Johnson keep writing.


    What other book might you compare A Serpent's Tooth to and why?

    The Rembrant by Daniel Silva. The same romance, humor and action along with unexpected ending.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Oh he bring Walt Longmire to life. He makes you wish you could be right along with Walt.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the series and I hope Craig Johnson and George Guidall keep the books comming.

    "Great book, perfect narrator"

    Really, what else is there to say? Johnson continues to turn out terrific books with a beautiful sense of time and place and with characters who are people you want to know (except for the bad guys of course!) I so enjoy the humor interlaced throughout and the telling could not be better done. Guidall is fabulous.

    "Disappointed - the first i dont recommend"

    I'm so disappointed - this is my go-to series, always entertaining and fun. In this case, it felt like the crime was over-contrived, the heros a bit too heroic (how many times can Walt say "Boy Howdy" in one book?), and the whole thing a bit formulaic. Yes, there were some new quirky characters. But it still just felt... wrong. Like the author tried to over-do many of the characters traits,maybe to make it different, and it it just didnt work. Not sure i'm capturing the issue really, all i can say is - i love this series, but did not care for this book. And it makes me worry a little about the next one...

    "Modern Western"

    This pretty much a modern Western, right down to the tough woman standing by her man and a shootout with the bad guys. Totally enjoyable.

    With almost 800 books in my library, I am an experienced listener. I appreciate a well written good story. I am pretty critical of trash.

    "No Real surprises, No real disappointments."

    I started Craig Johnson's books right at the beginning. I enjoyed them so much. Now nine books into the series, I wonder if it is being driven by the television productions. I think George Guidall helps to carry the story along. He is such an excellent narrator. I am beginning to feel the familiarity of an over the top, almost superhuman heroic scene. It is hard to picture Walt as Robert Taylor, and even harder to picture "the Cheyene Nation" as Lou Diamond Phillips once one has listened to George Guidall. Nit picking aside. I think you won't be disappointed if you have enjoyed the other books. They all seem to have a similar rhythm, no real surprises, no real disappointments.

    "I simply couldn't keep all the characters straight"

    I have to agree with the two negatives I read, This was too disjointed for me. Different names for characters did not help. I might have enjoyed it more if I could have listened to it all at once with no distractions, but that's not a possibility. I think I will skip any more books in this series.
