    "Great Author but..."
    What disappointed you about A Serpent's Tooth?

    I love the Walt Longmire series but they are mostly read by a man who sounds old and tired. Walt Longmire is laid back not on his last legs! The reader puts you to sleep! Please get someone with more energy who can still convey the Walt Longmire character.

    "If Your a Longmire Fan - You'll Enjoy It!"
    Would you listen to A Serpent's Tooth again? Why?

    Yes - I am not given to listening to books over again but if I were to this would be one I would pick up a second time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have to confess my prejudice - I am a Longmire Fan. I had not heard of the Longmire series until the TV series came out. I enjoyed it and have loved the books. I just enjoy the entire laid back, western approach to crime and life in the Longmire character. In addition, the story lines keep me listening.


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

    He seems to hit the Longmire persona on the head


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Longmire - I highly recommend.

    I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.

    "Extremely enjoyable"

    I spend so much time listening to books and I frequently find that I run out of books. This is a case of "I ran out of books by my favorite authors so now what do I do?" Along comes Craig Johnson and George Guidal. Great combination!

    I was so delighted with this book that I now have to get the whole series. I can hardly wait to start with book 1.

    "Narration"

    I really enjoy the Walt Longmire character books BUT I am usually listening while I drive. I like George Guidall's "craggy" voice very much BUT it is hard to hear in the car. I can pick up the general narration and can follow the story but he tends to speak very softly sometimes. I appreciate the artistry of this but unfortunately I am not in a new car with outside noise cancelling construction! And I do have the volume up.

    "Good story"
    Would you listen to A Serpent's Tooth again? Why?

    I don't listen to fiction again usually


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The sheriff. Not flashy just solidly a good guy. Likable


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Perfect voice for the main character and didn't make the women sound ridiculous


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

    no - fine to break it up

    Story
    "Too many bad guys"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Maybe if you were reading the book, it would be easier to keep track of the many characters. But listening to it, especially in short stretches in the car, made it difficult to remember who's who. The plot includes not one but two compounds of religious zealots who become kind of interchangeable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Craig Johnson? Why or why not?

    Maybe. I like the Longmire TV series, so I could perhaps be persuaded to try an audiobook one more time.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.

    Story
    "Another enjoyable Western"
    What did you love best about A Serpent's Tooth?

    The interaction between Walt and Vic.
    The gradual unfolding of the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I listened to this out of order. Now I have to go back and read/listen to them all in order.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    He begins with the sheriff humoring an old lady by listening to her unlikely and disjointed story, then slowly circles out to a realization that her story is central to his current case, and he keeps it lively by including lots of interaction with the series' ongoing characters and their stories.


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

    Nothing.

    "I don't understand the Reviews"

    Clearly there is something wrong with me in regards to this book. I found it boring and hard to finish. This book has an incredibly high 4.5 average with over 750 ratings. I have hardly found a book with so few negative reviews. Almost every reviewer raves about this book. I just don't understand why? I kept listening to it in the hope that it would improve but it never did.

    Story
    "If you like the Longmire TV series, try the books!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend these books. The characters are memorable and unique. The Montana setting is described in a way that makes me want to move there or at least visit again. It's a mystery series but what's great is the relationships between the characters and the humor. The books definitely are better than the TV series. So if you like the series, you'll probably enjoy the books even more.


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

    George Guidall was the perfect choice for this series. His portrayal of Sheriff Longmire really fits the character the way I would envision him to be. His voice and characterization of Henry is better than how he is portrayed in the TV series IMO.


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

    I really enjoyed the humor in the story. I laughed several times over the situations that came up because of Rockwell, the supposedly 200 year old Mormon prophet.


    Any additional comments?

    I actually got this book because it was a daily deal. I had already watched the Longmire TV series so I thought I'd give it a try. I enjoyed it so much I've started ordering the whole series from the beginning. I'm hooked. So far I've gone through The Cold Dish and Death Without Company which are just as good.

    Story
    "Wyoming Adventure"
    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    His voice at first I thought was going to annoy me and then I quickly got into the book and started to enjoy his performance! He never used an obnoxious voice for any of the characters which drives me nuts with other books sometimes!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved listening to this book, but I think it also hit home with me. I'm from Utah originally and spent a lot of time in Wyoming so completely know all of the culture. I don't think I would have enjoyed this much without this prior knowledge. Also an ex-mormon I enjoyed listening to their talk of LDS and LDS break off religions without just completely bashing on them. I enjoyed and might consider another book from this author, but it wouldn't be on the top of my list.
