This is truly my favorite Longmire book so far ! The Indian spirituality and explainations
are incredible and Walt's determination to follow through when he knows his path make this book impossible to walk away from. I found myself completely absorbed in the story and George Guidall is the only one who could possibly do it justice.
I will be through with the series soon and I fear the loss I will feel! I hope Craig Johnson is writing like crazy to keep us supplied with these amazing books!
I'm seeing things
George Guidall is a wonderful narrator and the best for this series.
No I never have time to sit through an entire book in one sitting.
Entertaining, great visualization
The sheriff, of course.
I always enjoy reading and listening to Craig Johnson's Longmire stories.
By not being a fairytale
The lack of additional characters and the the way Walt "dies" several times , but keeps chugging along talking to spirits.
Hard to miss since there is mainly one.
He does a wonderful job on all the voices.
I don't know....
Looking forward for the next one coming out.
Yes, but with the advice to not get too bored during the "spirit contact" episodes. That part seemed to go on and on (and on).
Cut back on the spirit contact content - it drug on too long.
Fuidall always does a fine job.
NO, not if it means more of the spirit talk stuff.
I love books!
I'd have rated this one higher than 5 stars if I could have, it was that good. Craig Johnson really out did himself with this story. He left all of Walt's staff and friends behind and had Walt going up a mountain by himself chasing the bad guys when he had every reason not to. But then, that's Walt Longmire and the more we get to know him the more we like and respect him. I'd say that Walt sure could retire after this adventure and no one could fault him. But, I know he doesn't retire as I'm on to "As the Crow Flies".
It ranks at the top of my list.
Yes, all of twists and turns of the story were both suspenseful and at time humorous.
He helped bring the suspense to the necessary height and also the humorous parts.
George Guidall brought to your mind the scene of the harsh environment, the overwhelming obstacles that had to be faced in order to survive. It was hard to stop listening and I couldn't wait to get back to the story.
I found it completely implausible that Walt would be up to the task the book set for him. His repeated refusal to show any type of common sense in an increasingly dangerous and outlandish situation, just ruined it for me. and I LOVE these books. SPOILER ALERT, there is just now way that a man unaccustomed to high altitude could survive the rigors of that situation over a period of three days with no food or water or rest, as happens in the book.
make the scenario more plausible. have him maybe drink some water, or eat some food, or perhaps take a nap? or wait for henry, who was close behind? the other characters in the series, henry, vic, etc are so awesome, it is a shame to use them so poorly. i did love the inclusion of a more vocal Virgil.
listened to them all. this was the worst of the lot. the junkyard one was fairly meh as well.
everything past the pint of the snowmobile crash.
This is my first listen to a book by Craig Johnson. The book started well but then seemed to get repetitive, the main character, the Sheriff, hunting the bad guy in a wild and untamed wilderness. Well, OK, that sounds exciting but the story was far too predictable and the main char act, the sheriff, talked far too much to himself. I know Craig Johnson has a lot of fans and that this is one book from a very poplar series but heck, if it was only an hour or so shorter, without all that talking to a dead indian filler, it would be a far better read. I am not suggesting that you don't try the book or that Craig Johnson doesn't have something good going for himself but I am saying that with a little more work, Johnson could have made it much better. So be prepared for some really good parts and some places where you might want to fast forward.
