Loved it! Character driven. It made me laugh out loud more than once. I thought was the best in the series.
As with all the other Walt Longmire stories by Craig Johnson, I enjoyed this one as well. This story is different than previous Longmire stories though, and not what I expected. It is more about Longmire determined to get the bad guy no matter what it takes, and less about him joking with his buddy the Cheyenne nation (Henry Standing Bear), and getting bailed out by his close friend in times of need. I've enjoyed past stories that illustrate the interaction between Longmire and his potty-mouthed deputy, his help in the Sheriff's department, and his down-home interaction with the odd assortment of people in his county, but this story heads in a different direction and rather quickly.
Craig Johnson introduces a dose of Indian supernatural experiences that was probably what it would take to bring down an unrelenting psycho killer that is not only dangerous, but creative in his attempts to stop Longmire. Although there is a sprinkling of some humorous discussions among the various characters, this book is about a more focused man - Walt Longmire, that is doing his job above and beyond the call of duty. I kept finding myself saying Walt, wait for the back-up help you need, but no, Longmire wasn't waiting for anyone. He was a man on a mission and would not stop no matter what threats he encountered.
The story seemed short, but then again, I like hearing George Guidall not only narrate the story, but an excellent narrator that brings Walt Longmire to life. The story traverses a different direction than most of the Longmire stories, but I liked it none the less and hope that Craig Johnson has another story ready for me to download soon.
I love anything I can't figure out halfway through the book
It is just an overall great book, like all the Longmire books
I love the characters in the Walt Longmire series and George Guidall is the perfect narrator.
The values of the characters.
On the mtn. with the "dead" Indian
Walt's keeping on keeping on for his daughter.
I love this series, but this was not my favorite.
Just have the audio versions
between the story line and narrator they were able to keep the story up beat
It would be better in a one sitting as a long trip as you can forget which characters are in the mountains or in the mind.
Yes I would. I like the descriptive picture drawn by the author's narrative. I'm familiar with that neck of the woods and I enjoy his take on it.
It held my attention. You were a ways into it before the villain's identity became apparent.
He creates identifiable voices for the characters so you don't have to wonder who's speaking.
He has a pleasant sounding voice and an enjoyable cadence to his reading.
I believe I remember his voice on some James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman books.
No...too much to do.
It's a good combination of author and narrator. Thank you for a job well done guys.
I'm a longtime fan of Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series, and Hell is Empty was a good addition to that list. I was a little disappointed that most of my favorite recurring characters appear only briefly in this book, but it was still a good read. Great atmosphere, especially in the mountain scenes.
There are only a handful of things you can count in this world, and Walt Longmire is among those. The ending was one of the best.
My favorite character is Walt. From the first book in the series, you can't help but fall in love with this giant kind-hearted man who makes everything right.
I've listened to numerous books narrated by George Guidall and have truly enjoyed everyone of them. In fact, when I've read all of the new releases by my favorite authors I find myself looking for new books to read based on those that George has narrated. I don't know that I will ever tire of listening to George. Thanks so much Mr. Guidall.
Loved the ending, and find myself reflecting on it from time to time.
I'm looking forward to the next Craig Johnson book, and sincerely hope that Mr. Guidall will continue to narrate those written by this author. Many thanks to Mr. Johnson for the heart warming stories, and to Mr. Guidall for the excellent narrating.
I highly recommend this audiobook. It is filled with suspense, believable situations and humor.
Cold Dish is a similar book with like situations and a little mystical happenings.
I have listened to many performances by George Guidall. He is excellent, I have never heard a book by him that is anything but excellent. He is, by far, my favorite performer.
I was on a road trip and wanted it to last the trip. The length of the book fit my needs and the action and performance held my interest throughout.
I thoroughly enjoy the Walt Longmire series. I have listened to several and enjoyed all of them.
