    "I have listened/read them all"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. I do believe this may be Craig's best Longmire book yet! It was hard for me to put down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As always Walt and the "Bear". Craig Johnson expands each character individually as well as the friendship with each book. It amazes me at the complexity, but yet simplicity he uses to develop the characters.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Vander Ross............. quite the comical character, but I also enjoyed the intensity with which George Guidall expressed of the scene in Shortdrop between Walt and the Lanyer gang after the Sheriffs substation burnt down taking the life of Double Tough. It was as if I was part of the scene taking place before me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This would be hard one for me. I watch the Longmire TV series and while I enjoy the TV show; I enjoy the books so much more.


    Any additional comments?

    I have truly enjoyed the Longmire series and I hope Craig will continue with this wonderful series.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Paddling against the current again"

    I would rate it a solid 3 1/2 stars, but no more. I am way out of sync with the other reviewers on this one and am wondering why. What am I missing?

    I thought the narration was perfection for all the characters. George Guidall did a masterful job and I can imagine no one else doing as well.

    However, I found the story somewhat slow moving and do I dare say--not so interesting? As I got toward the end, it got a little more involving for me. It is not that I haven't experienced Walt Longmire. I watched some episodes on television, the few that I found, and really enjoyed them. I was just expecting to care a little more.

    My bad.

    "Superb storytelling"

    I can't add much to all of the reviews here, except to say a heartfelt thank you to Mr. Johnson and Mr. Guidall for a truly enjoyable experience. I've read many of the Walt Longmire mysteries and have enjoyed them all, but this one was somehow darn near perfect in my opinion.

    "LOVE WALT"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Serpent's Tooth to be better than the print version?

    Only listen to books


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George rocks Walt Longmire. If he doesn't narrate them, it won't be Walt.


    Any additional comments?

    Finished this book yesterday, after listening to the whole set of books, I re-listened to the whole set again. Now the withdrawal is setting in. Best books I've listened to
