What the Critics Say

"Johnson combines a vivid sense of the dailiness of life--and the way human relationships take root in that dailiness--with a sure--handed touch for jolting both his characters and his readers out of their comfort zones and deep into harm's way. It's hard to ask for more in a literary mystery." (Booklist)

    "Pure Enjoyment."
    Where does Death Without Company rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to many audiobooks and out of all of them, those by Craig Johnson are a favorite. I am spreading them out, resisting the urge to hear them all one after the other. Great series.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He has a down home like voice that fits perfect with the characters. He delivers the dry wit as a conversationalist, not an actor.


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

    I laughed many times.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a good series with interesting characters and a bit of humor. Try Longmire out.

    "another winner for craig johnson"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this to a friend because I know they would enjoy the easy listen and simple but twisting story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dry wit of Bear.


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

    The inflection and indian language.


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

    It made me laugh out loud several times, although this is not a comedy.


    Any additional comments?

    The interaction between Longmire and bear is reminiscent of Spenser and Hawk in Robert B. Parker's Spenser series.

    "PERFECT BLEND OF VOICE & STORY & CHARACTER"

    I listen to an awful lot of books. When I saw the latest Longmire mystery was published, I looked it up and am so glad I started with this series at the beginning. I am totally entranced with Walt Longmire's character as interpreted by George Guidall. I saw an episode of a TV show based on the series and they got it ALL WRONG. I toil in those fields myself, and I can't believe producers didn't study Guidall's work and realize that he had created the guy who should star in the show--screenwriters should also have paid attention to Longmire's fabulous sense of humor. Let alone The Cheyenne Nation, Ruby, Vic, the whole crowd is just wonderful to listen to. Previously I knew next to nothing about the "new" West--now at least I have a starting point to learn more.I'm listening to As The Crow Flies now--and it's as great as the others.

    "Entertaining Contemporary Western"
    What did you like best about Death Without Company? What did you like least?

    I liked the complexity of the story. It spanned generations, incorporated flashbacks, and the plot kept me guessing for quite a while. I also enjoyed the narrator. I will be looking for his work in the future. What I liked the least was
    **POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*** *************************************************************************************************************** ****************************************************************************************when the first killer was revealed and then pursued for final portion of the story, I got completely lost. I could not figure out who the guy was, and did not understand his role in the whole plot. And the final plot twist just added to my confusion. I went back a few times to try to find where I got lost but was unsuccessful.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I may do another Longmire mystery.


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

    I loved his performance of Vic.


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

    I went looking for the audiobook after watching the series on A&E

    Story
    "Terrific Combination of Reader with Story."
    Would you listen to Death Without Company again? Why?

    Yes. This is a complicated story that would be good to listen to twice, in order to enjoy the small details and small references, to savor them as much as possible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Geography, Interesting Culture, Great Tale, Intriguing Characters; all are part of what I am coming to expect from the Walt Longmire series.I have read three of them now, and feel as though they build on an awareness of a place in time, a contrasting between modernity and timelessness, and an excess of idiosyncratic personalities. Fast paced, and a bit supernatural, the mysteries open up and out, unfolding until the story is satisfyingly complete.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is THE BEST! I would listen to him read the newspaper, or a telephone book perhaps.


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

    If I were to make a film of this book if would have a tag line of 21st century small town living out the past.

    Retired Autoworker who loves books. I learned to read before I went to school as I was by myself a lot as a kid. I quickly learned that books were my friend. I listen to audio books when I travel alone because they help me stay awake as I drive.

    This was a very good book and well read. Craig Johnson came to my attention from the Longmire series on A & E Channel and this is the second of his books I've listened too. I will be listening to more.
