    "Johnson and Guidall do it again"

    I think Johnson and Guidall were put on this earth just to entertain us. I have purchased all of the books in this series and can't wait until the next one, which is a long time off. I don't know which book is best but this ranks right up there. Johnson takes you thru the entire rang of human emotions all the way to the very end. You can't help but love all the characters in this book mainly because of the way Johnson shows their love and respect for each other. I keep asking myself how do you come up with a beautiful, hard swearing cop from Philadelphia, drop her in Wyoming, have her fall in love with a small town sheriff twice her and make it work. I don't know but it does.

    Story
    "Perfect marriage of author and performer"
    If you could sum up A Serpent's Tooth in three words, what would they be?

    Story, performance, anticipation


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    With exception of the "bad guys" I enjoy all Longmire characters - especially Vic. Such a mouth.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to so many Guidall performances, I can't recall them all. His performances are always spot on. This one does not disappoint.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have laughed out loud listening to all Longmire tales. Craig Johnson's dialogue is infused with humor, yet the depth of plot and depiction of the human condition is never diminished because of it.
    Truly enjoy the Longmire series.


    Any additional comments?

    I regret listening takes so much less time than writing the next Longmire release. Awaiting that occurrence with much anticipation.

    "Keeping it fresh"

    Craig Johnson is doing a good job of managing the difficult task of keeping a series fresh. This installment manages to keep the humor and poignancy alive without retreading old material.

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    "It's all about the characters"

    Though the mysteries in the Walt Longmire series are not bad, they're not the main reason I listen to these books. It's the great characters that make these books stand out and this book is probably the best example of those characters. You can feel the friendships and heart of each of the regulars. Add in the assortment of unique supporting characters and you have the recipe for a great book. George Guidall IS the voice of Walt Longmire and captures his character perfectly. His performance of all the characters is generally spot on. Even though the voices of most of the woman sound pretty much the same they are each portrayed with a unique personality making them distinct. His wry delivery also fits the humor of the books to a tee and I often found myself laughing out loud at the exchanges between Walt, Vic, Henry and the others.

    "What a Cliff Hanger!"

    I spent the first 45 minutes laughing at the quips Johnson came up with which is not unusual for these characters. I am a Longmire fan and was awaiting the new book with great anticipation. While the interaction between the characters was great I thought the story line was a bit weak. However, there were some very unexpected sharp left turns in the book such as the loss of two of the characters and then the shocker ending. I am hoping Mr. Johnson can come out with the next book in the fall and not make us wait a year to find out what will happen with Walt and Vic. Mr G. was fantastic as usual. I really enjoy his narrations. Even though I felt the story line was a bit weak, I enjoyed the book, did not think it a waste of my time and well worth a credit.

    "Are there negative numbers in reviews?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Do a little research and cut out the stereotyping.


    What was most disappointing about Craig Johnson’s story?

    The inaccuracy of the religious descriptions and the crude, jarring language of the deputy made it impossible to get into the story.


    Did George Guidall do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not even George could save this one! He is one of my favorites.


    What character would you cut from A Serpent's Tooth?

    Just give us the old Walt with his wisdom and humor.

    "George Is The Real Walt"

    Like some other reviewers, I have had trouble reconciling the "Walt Longmire" TV series with these books. Conclusion: The books are way better! And the Audio versions are the very best!

    "Serpent's Tooth" is a great case in point. Here it is: all the humor and wit - along with the cracking good basic mystery story - which make the series stand out. Johnson's choice of subject here is timely and gripping. His characters are, as always, wonderful and flawed and funny and heartbreaking. And, of course, George Guidall! I'd hate to be a TV actor trying to compete with that unique, wry, expressive voice!

    TV's Walt is a good guy, but pretty much indistinguishable from other stoic, handsome, aging cowboys. The real Walt Longmire is here at Audible - with Craig Johnson and George Guidall.

    Story
    "Love the Longmire Heart"
    Where does A Serpent's Tooth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While not my favorite in Johnson's series, I still enjoy everything about Walt, Henry, and even the potty-mouthed Victoria. The warmth and humor of these characters makes me yearn for their company when I'm not with them. This story of a "polygamous lost boy" is a tender one. Just sad that the past and the present practices of Mormons continue to exist in a blender. Nevertheless, I'm not a thin-skinned Mormon who can't laugh at a bit 'o ribbing. I'll keep reading as long as Craig Johnson keeps writing!


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    And George - what can I say? He is one of my top top top narrators and brings every single character - male or female - to life, capturing every nuance of each personality. I've chosen to listen to some titles just because George reads the stories. He makes even "okay" books better.

    I liked the story, the mystery and the romance. My favorite so far. Ridiculous rules for reviewing make not want to ever review again.
