    I did not preview the narrator before buying this, I could not stay interested because all of the characters sounded the same and - sorry but I could not get past his breathlessness.

    "Very Good!"

    I really like the Walt Longmire series! Craig Johnson does such an excellent job in portraying all the characters and the story with humor and wit. The plot is always very good! These books are so much better than the TV show "Longmire", but I like the TV show too! However, they only have 50 minutes to tell a story on TV, with the book you get details. I enjoy these books, so does my husband. We listen together while driving.

    "Just gets better and better"

    What else can I say.....I love this series. The way Craig continues each book where the last left off (kinda) really appeals to me. Each book builds on the last and really fleshs out the characters. I usually finish one and move to the next. Spend your credits on this series and sit back and enjoy. You are in for a treat.

    "Out of sorts"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'm like all of the Longmire Mysteries so far and this one is no exception.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the idea of taking the characters out of Wyoming and dropping them into the city of Philadelphia. The story is a bit wild but fun to listen to.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I think George is the perfect voice for Walt Longmire and all the other characters he portrays while tell the story.

    "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.
