    Story
    "Guidall makes Longmire come alive"

    I love the Longmire series. Guildall makes all the characters come alive for me. I love the Cheyenne Nation who makes me laugh when the two banter. It leaves me telling my critters, "Yes, it is so".

    Story
    "My favorite of the series! So far..."

    Let me say that I really and truly enjoy listening to George Guidall's narration in general. But in these books, he becomes Walt Longmire. the way he performs other characters is very good, no doubt. However, when he is speaking in the matter of fact way that Walt Longmire does, there's no substitute. It helps in this case that the story is so engaging. The situations that Walt gets himself into and out of are something else. I enjoyed listening to this story more than any other. It helps that we follow him on a journey through some harrowing challenges, tracking down a true villain. I keep fretting about what will do him in: the man or Mother Nature?

    Story
    "Not As Good"

    I will choose anything in the Walt Longmire series but this was a dissappointment. Maybe it was because he was without his loyal companions much of the time, but this story was less interesting and I found myself wandering off to other thoughts as I was listening. As always George Guidall did a wonderful job narrating but he can only work with what Craig Johnson has given him to read.

    Story
    "Straight to Hell...With Chaser."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    First of all, Mr. Johnson and his characterization, elegant prose and vivid metaphors of contemporary Wyoming/western is a reader's delight, similar to another artist of today's storytellers Mr. J.l. Burke and his passion for the Cajun Louisiana characters and culture. Safe to say that any reader would do well to grab themselves a cold one, a plate of crawfish and barbecue and turn up the volume on a Johnson or Burke audible player.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Walt Longmire is The Man peer ee ud!!!!! I think he comes closest to my all time overwestern figures and icons John Wayne. I found that Hell is Empty cemented Sheriff Longmire as a western super hero alongside The Duke. Qualifications for super hero: good guy devoted to eliminating evil, may bend but will not break, kicks all kinds of evil ass, yet maintains level of modesty, ladies swoon over super heroes, both good and bad, our super heroes all don uniforms, etc...PLEASE, feel free to add to this list.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George is Walt Longmire...further, he is one of my top narrators. Mr. Guidall can do it all.

    I really got sucked into this book. The setting, the indian lore, all excellent. The twist at the end was enthralling. Great story.

    Story
    "In whos world!"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Craig Johnson again?

    Yes I would. But the Longmire series is getting a bit out there. A Sheriff, single handedly chasing 3 Armed murderers in a blizzard, is just too far out there... come on.


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

    A voice to the characters. But george's story telling is starting yo lack what the first few installments had.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "What a Great Book!"

    This is one of the most excellent books I have ever listened to. Craig Johnson is a fantastic writer with such detail that you can visually see all the characters in your mind as the story unfolds. The Walt Longmire character is fascinating, deeply philosophical and funny. Can someone please find me a man like that in real life!!!!!!!!! What I love most about this series is the quick wit and the everyday humor. If Craig Johnson stops writing about Walt Longmire, well..... I will just have to commit suicide...end of story.
