    Story
    "Look out Philadelphia - a new sheriff is in town!"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was something completely different to have Walt Longmire out of his element but showing everyone good old Wyoming style and justice.


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

    Walt and Henry - always. It was nice to see Vic back in her hometown and meet the family - sort of.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Henry in Cady's hospital room. It brought tears to my eyes.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book very much. Seeing Walt in another environment was interesting. It was also a very touching story with Walt's concern for Cady; Henry's concern for both Walt and Cady and the new characters we meet. I am completely enthralled with the Longmire series.

    "Perfect voice for this series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The Longmeier series is continually interesting, and the reading enhances the experience.


    What other book might you compare Kindness Goes Unpunished to and why?

    All the entries in the Longmeier series build one upon the former, should be read in order.


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

    His accent is perfect for the Wyoming location and enhances the experience. I've loved all these books.


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

    There is already a tv series based on the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful series beautifully rendered.

    Story
    "Among the best audiobooks I've listened to"
    What made the experience of listening to Kindness Goes Unpunished the most enjoyable?

    A mesmerizing story, told very well


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The twists and turns in the plot kept the story moving—even the personal stories


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

    Walt Longmire has a great inner voice and presence—he's an epic character. But the other characters are compelling as well: Henry Standing Bear; Victoria Moretti, Lena Moretti


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

    When Walt Longmire gets away to Philadelphia for a vacation, he finds he still can't escape the evil in the world—only this time it hits closer to home than ever.


    Any additional comments?

    Each of the books in this series are well-written and highly entertaining. The characters grow on you with each new story. So start at the beginning, and you won't want to stop until you've read them all. Taken alone, each story is a great adventure in it's own right. In his other books, Craig Johnson's prose captures the expansiveness and the mystery of that unique part of the country (Wyoming). But he also does a pretty nice job in this story of conveying the feeling of being in Philadelphia as a first-time visitor.

    "Just Keep Getting Better"
    Where does Kindness Goes Unpunished rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    this one is ranks in the top 10 of my list with the other 2 Longmires books I have listened to. I am fond of the Sheriff and his companions. and especially enjoyed them outside of their Wyoming elements.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I thought the plot was good.....I was glad to finally meet Vic's family (all of them). I think the Cheyenne Nation got a little shortchained in this this one tho'.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I especially liked the scene on the bridge when Vic shows up unannounced.


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

    I did not like the death of the horse and almost had to pull over to the side of the road on my way to work to shed a tear especially when the Sheriff took it so hard. I laughed out lous when Henry warned Waltnot to wreck Lola.


    Any additional comments?

    I have mixed feelings about the scene between Walt and Vic but will reserve judement until I listen to book #4.

    I read this one out of order but the story and writing style are so good that it can stand on its own, however, I will go back and buy book #2 and then the rest of the series in order. Good strong lead characters that can mesh well with new ones. This book has a good story line to set the hook and Mr. G, The Master narrator, to reel you in.

    "A great read with an unusual setting"

    I love the easygoing style of Walt Longmire, a small-town Wyoming sheriff who approaches problems methodically, with humor, and with heart. He is a laconic, slow-moving guy who approaches each case individually and does not easily give up when the going becomes difficult. His sidekick Henry, often referred to as "The Cheyenne Nation" is one of my favorite characters in fiction - almost, but not quite, the stereotypical stoic, wise Indian, with a superb sense of the absurd. The two men together are larger than the sum of each of them. I CARE about what happens to these two, and long after I've read the book, they stay in my mind. For me, that is the hallmark of an excellent read.

    "Walt Goes to Philly"
    Would you listen to Kindness Goes Unpunished again? Why?

    Maybe not. These are entertaining, but seem to be a bit lacking in series development. I'm finding them increasingly similar.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I found the ending a bit predictable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene when his daughter awakens is very well done.


    Any additional comments?

    The Walter Longmire character seems to have been written for George Guidall. He has it nailed, and has since the first page of

    Would you consider the audio edition of Kindness Goes Unpunished to be better than the print version?

    Cannot say as I have not purchased the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have two actually; Walt and Vic.


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

    I think it fair to say that George Guidall does an excellent job bringing each character to life.


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

    Loved the story. One of my favorite parts was when Vic joined Walt in Philadelphia and ... I'm not going to give that part of the story away for those who haven't read it. All in all, another great story.


    Any additional comments?

    Discovered the series when looking for audio books narrated by George Guidall. I have listened to numerous books and sincerely appreciate hearing George's voice. He's like the slightly worn blanket that you come to love. Thank you Mr. Guidall, and thank you Mr. Johnson for an excellent series.

    "Walt goes to the big city"

    I really enjoy the Walt Longmire books set in Wyoming. I enjoy the highly-educated rural sheriff and his best friend Henry Standing Bear. This is my least favorite of the series because he is out of his element in Philadelphia. It may have been interesting for the author to send the sheriff to Philly, but the location of the rest of the series is one of its charms. Read the rest of the series first and save this for when you need a fix of Longmire.
    George Guidall is one of my favorite narrators.
