"The quick pace and tangled web of interconnected crimes will keep readers turning pages." (Publishers Weekly)
Narrator George Guidell's voice painted an image of Walt and Bear that went beyond the author's words. Wish I had listened to my first Walt Longmier mystery.
Perhaps Tony Hillerman's Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee books are close. Both have characters that use economy of words with abundance of meaning. I think Johnson does a better job of developing complex and interesting characters who are tremendous people but not perfect.
Bear. Guidall's voice created an image of a interesting and complex worrier that onl words did not convey.
For the last half of the book, I found excuses to listen to the book and being away from people.
Since Kindness have lester to Moccasins and started Dark Horse.
Yes. I would listen to this book and all the Walt Longmire books again. Guidall's reading is exquisite. And I really like Walt, Vick, and Henry. It was fun to see Walt outside of Wyoming doing his sheriff thing.
I compare Walt Longmire to Miles Vorksigan in the Barrayar series of Bujold. Although different in many ways, they are similar where it counts. They solve problems, they have issues, they are surrounded by great people, etc.
I cannot imagine Walt Longmire with any other voice than George's. If suddenly I found that one of the volumes in the series was by another reader, I would be shocked and dismayed (such as happened when the Dresden series changing from James Marsters). George does a great job with the other voices too. So, his reading enriches the experience.
Big Country Sheriff in the Big City
I haven't read any of the series.
The continuous story. I don't want the series to end.
His voice and pacing is perfect.
I like the flashbacks and the literary allusions in all the books.
Again, I don't want the series to end.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
He is one great narrator. His voices for Walt and Henry are great.
Yes for sadness, Walt's daughter, her accident, and her being in the hospital.
I am listening to all of the Walt Longmire's and Craig Johnson's books. They have all been wonderful. Just this one was a little slow moving for me. So don't let this stop you from listening to all of them.
Knew would happen
Walt's relationship between Vic and her mother.
His ability to bring the first person characters to life.
Walt's loyalty to his injured daughter.
Will listen to all Longmire series.books.
Craig Johnson writes in a way that makes it easy to visualize what is happening in the story and the surrounding terrain.
George Guidall sounds like a craggy old cowboy from Wyoming and seems to fit the part he is reading.
With a Longmire book you expect great writing, humor and a good mystery. It's all here, with the addition of the poignancy of Walt's daughter being injured. George Guidall's narration is once again perfect.
This is the third installment in the Walt Longmire mystery series, and the first two take place in his rural Absaroka County, Wyoming, which is described in loving and lyrical detail. Kindness Goes Unpunished is set entirely in Philadelphia, where Walt's daughter Cady practices law. Walt sets out with his good friend Henry Standing Bear, who is mounting an exhibit of his historical photos in a museum there. Accompanied by Dog, the two men drive across country in Henry's vintage Cadillac, and they encounter much more than expected.
Having enjoyed the first two books (and especially George Guidall's narration), I seem to be hooked on this series. Number three does not disappoint. The same cast of characters is present, although some by long distance, and Johnson weaves Indian lore throughout, as well. The book ends somewhat ambiguously, creating an urge to order the next in the series ASAP, which I have, of course, done. Don't skip this one - it is an important part of Sheriff Walt Longmire's overall journey.
I love Walt Longmire and Joe Pickett. If you like Craig Johnsons charcter of Walt Longmire your going to also like C.J. Box's charcter Joe Pickett. These are my favorite Wyoming authors and their hero's.
It was something completely different to have Walt Longmire out of his element but showing everyone good old Wyoming style and justice.
Walt and Henry - always. It was nice to see Vic back in her hometown and meet the family - sort of.
Henry in Cady's hospital room. It brought tears to my eyes.
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.
