    "The Story Comes to Life!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kindness Goes Unpunished to be better than the print version?

    Most definitely.


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

    Any of the Craig Johnson series with Walt Longmire up to this point.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    ALL of them.


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

    ALL of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I would say that Craig Johnson is my new favorite author. However, much credit HAS to be given to narrator George Guidall for truly bringing the story to life. Guidall is so entrenched in the characters that you cannot help to believe that he and Craig Johnson must be the same person! Every story is suspenseful and keeps the reader guessing into each chapter. Each story is full of twists and turns that erase the possibility of any dull moments. Thankfully I began with "Cold Dish," the first book in this series and have chronologically listened my way through each exciting adventure. Guidall successfully and masterfully brings each character to life which not only magnifies the humor intertwined in suspenseful plots, but makes the listener truly care about and sympathize with each and every character. This series alone makes my subscription to Audible.com worth every single cent!

    "another good one, this one in Philly"

    Well, I'm hooked on these Walt Longmire books now and will methodically work through the ones I've haven't listened to yet. This one was set in Philadelphia and not Wyoming. I'm not surprised the author set one of his stories in Philly as his bio states that he has Philly ties. So, I can see why one would be there since his daughter lives there and his detective is from there but I am a bit surprised that he chose just his third book in the series to tell us about Vic's family, a lot about Philly's history, including Indian, but in the overall series it doesn't really matter when he introduces this part of the series. I'm sure his Philly family and friends appreciated it. But, it was another good Walt Longmire tale. In book #2 when his daughter visits him in Wyoming he's so busy working a case he doesn't have much time for her and in this one she's injured and they can't talk to one another. We'll see if that changes going forward. The author really has a witty style of writing, the way he describes people, the settings, the mystery, etc., is really enjoyable. He spins good mystery yarns but it's his character development and writing style that really pull you in. Now I feel like I know the Moretti family and more about Vic's upbringing there, I'm ready to get back to Wyoming, just like Walt. On to book #4!

    "Completely addicted to this series"
    If you could sum up Kindness Goes Unpunished in three words, what would they be?

    sorry its over.


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

    This is my second in the series. I don't really have a comparison because the uniqueness of the characters is unlike anything else I have read. Like one of the other reviewers who would have thought a story about a sheriff and an Indian could make for unbelievable crime mysteries.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The car chase towards the end of the book.


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

    Well without giving anything away....when the photo comes on the daughter's computer.


    Any additional comments?

    Being from Philadelphia I loved all the scenes and thinking about the characters being so out of place in the City. That was a wonderful part of the book. This is my second in this series and I am immediately downloading the third. The humor and the wit in these books often has be laughing out loud which is hard to make me do. I like almost any crime mystery books. This for sure so far is my favorite series.

    The humor of Walt and Henry with the dog in the city.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kindness Goes Unpunished?

    Walt's care for his daughter in his aspirations for her to have the corner office and of course the surprise death.

    He is Walt and John Valjean.

    I want them to go back to Wyoming.


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad Walt loves his daughter, I have a daughter.

    "5 Stars All Around!!!"

    I don't always give 5 stars on a book, but I love all the Walt Longmire books, but what made this one not only 1 of the best out of the 8 written so far but a 5-star book overall compared to a larger pool of books in mysteries and thrillers

    Taking Walt who is used to being a sheriff in an extremely rural area, almost out in the middle of the boonies and put him in Philly after his daughter gets brained... well, put him and his huge, special forces, bad arse American Indian friend poking the'y're heads and contributing to the overall handling of the case... it shows that no matter where you are in the country or even the world, a good cop is a good cop... Walt might be overwhelmed by being in a huge city the same way another cop from Philly might react in the middle of the Wyoming mountainside where there might be 5 people living within 30 square miles

    Now add George Guidall who could make reading the phone book semi-interesting and you have a 5-star book all around.... Its one of the best books in the Walt Longmire series and a great book overall for anyone who likes mysteries

    "Another Great Longmire story"

    This one really fills in the blanks on Vic and some of Cady and Walt's father/daughter relationship details. As usual, lot's of great story twists and turns, fast paced. I'm a Walt Longmire fan so there isn't much that would make me give the books a bad rating!

    "Longmire goes to Philadelphia!"
    If you could sum up Kindness Goes Unpunished in three words, what would they be?

    Longmire, you rock!


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

    Since Walt is in the big city of Philadelphia, I was trying to think of other mysteries based in Philly I can compare it to. But Johnson just puts such a unique spin on the story I really can't come up with anything to compare it to!


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

    The personalities of the characters with his great narration. He really, really makes the Longmire series come alive.


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

    When the horse died, but I am always moved anytime an animal dies in a story, LOL!


    Any additional comments?

    Just have to read the books!

    "You Can Take a Cowboy out of Country, but. . ."

    So Walt goes to Philadelphia and this lovable old guy gets into more trouble than he does out West! Enjoyed this book thoroughly and gave it five stars across the board, though perhaps not quite as much as the first three each of which I would have given ten stars if possible. Numbers four and five in the series are qued up and waiting!

    "Craig Johnson is the Best!"

    I listen to an average of 100 books a year, and the Longmire books are some of my most favorite! I find myself going back and relistening (they have to be fantastic for me to re-listen) time and again. George Guidall is a brilliant narrator, also one of my favorites!
