"Full of crackling dialogue, this absorbing tale demonstrates that Longmire is still the sheriff in town." (Publishers Weekly)
I love the series but the stories performed by George Guidall are perfect. I've seen the TV version but it's not even close. Bear and Walt are a prefect combo and I don't think anyone could capture them better than Guidall. The underlying humor pulls them over the top.
I loved all the other Walt Longmire books but this one is not my favorite. I just couldn't get into the story at times. I honestly thought this one was boring. I suppose in every series that has to be one that is the least favorite and this is mine. George Guidell was excellent as always.
Walt Longmire was my favorite character, followed by Henry Standing Bear.
Good story, with asuperb dialogue between the characters. Nice ecomical prose. Seems to flow like Robert B Parker's books,
I listen to quite a few audio books since I drive for a living and have noticed that the artist narating the book can make it or break it, George Guidall is a perfect match for Walt Longmire. This added dimension helps Craig Johnson hit another one out of the park.
It's yet another chapter in the long life of Walt Longmire and lends additional background to him and reinforcement or perhaps definition of his wisdom
The story follows the charaters from one book to another but they don't loose integrety in the transition. Each story is a work of it's own and not dependant on the others to make an enjoyable experience. I can pickup book eight and then read book one and not be disapointed.
Many times, he never lets you down.
I think that would require a fair amount of thought and best left for another day.
Very enjoyable, I would recomend (and have) this series to anyone, my wife is a Walt Longmire addict
I loved this series. I like westerns of any era and interrupted some other series to finish Craig Johnson's books.
Plots were great. The 1st person is great at keeping my interest as he goes from one situation to another.
The voice--loved the gravel and inflection. Easy to create a picture in my mind of this lawman... He was great at portraying the emotions of Walt Longmire all the way through.
I did!!! All of the ones that were only 1 part anyway.
I'm on the lookout for anything else he writes and I hope he's not as slow as some of the authors whose books I've devoured the past few years. ;-)
I thought this book was a little slower than his others in this series. It seemed to drag on a big more than normal. I liked it overall, but as I listen to these books while driving I need some excitement and suspense to keep my attentive.
I would put this book a little lower on my "like" scale as compared to his others in this series.
George Guidall was on his game as he is always is. A great reader for sure.
It's in a series already.
Started devouring books at age 7 and haven't stopped since... Now I can read while I drive, do dishes, clean the house, or work in garden!
This book reveals how Walt's experiences in Vietnam made him the person he is. Craig Johnson does a masterful job, enthralling the reader with the present day mystery while simultaneously unfolding a past crime committed during wartime.
What drew me to begin listing to Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series was the narrator, George Guidall. I'd probably pay to listen to Guidall read his grocery list, not to imply that Craig Johnson's books are like
I've read all the books in he series except
I am a dyed in the wool Guidall fan and have listened to him for years. In my opinion he is the very best narrator one can find amongst all the recoded books narrators. I've recommended him to many others over the years, some who had never listened to a recorded book and all were
No, I don't read/listen to any books in that manner. I put aside 1 hour each day for audio books. The ones I've listened to over the years (I've been a recorded book listener for over 20 years) are so good I don't want them to end so I try to stretch them out.
I have listened to George Guidall read all of the Alan Furst novels that he narrated (nine) and in my opinion George Guidall's narration takes the novels from a 3 star rating to a 5+ rating. In this case (Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire) the novel itself (plot) is at best a 3 star, but Guidall turns it into a 4.
I rarely listen to a book a second time no matter what the book is but I will probably re-listen to all the Craig Johnson/Walt Longmier books again.
He is absolutely wonderful.
