A Serpent's Tooth (2013)
language
English
series
4.21 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I used to be a huge fan of the Walt Longmire contemporary Westerns, but this series has definitely gone downhill since it became a TV series. Shoddy repetitive writing becomes irritating even in genre fiction - how many time in one novel do we need to hear the main protagonists e...
Spirit of Steamboat (2013)

review 1: My new favorite author, Craig Johnson, and the Longmire series makes this another 'good-read' on my list! This novella takes the reader on a harrowing life-saving mission between Durant, Wyoming, and Denver, Colorado's Stapleton airport in an old WWII bomber plane during a horrif...
Another Man's Moccasins (2008)

review 1: Another Man's Moccasins gave an in depth look at who Walt Longmire is and how he became the man and Sheriff that he is in the present. I found myself anticipating the events of his time in Vietnam and also anticipating the future of Cady, Michael, Vic, Walt and even Virgil. There...
The Dark Horse (2009)

English
series
4.25 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Mostly enjoyed this one although the idea that Walt can successfully go undercover in a small town, in the county next door is pretty ludicrous. This is a break from most of the supporting cast. Only Dog and Henry really show up for any length of time. Johnson's horse knowledge i...
Junkyard Dogs (2010)

English
series

review 1: I’ve been a fan of the Longmire TV show since it came on, and finally gave one of Johnson’s books a try. Liked it even more than the show, by a comfortable margin. The books are wittier, far more “novels with crime” than “crime novels.” In Junkyard Dogs the real crime doesn’t app...
Wait for Signs: Twelve Longmire Stories (2014)
language
English
4.32 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I loved ever single one of these stories and would be hard pressed to name a favorite. But I think "Thankstaking" was one of the best. I'm a sucker for a happy (or reasonably happy) ending, especially with stories relating to beloved and/or much hated holidays and was quite worri...
Il volo di Natale (2014)

English
4.14 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is the first Longmire book I have read. I am a fan of the tv show. I enjoyed reading this book very much. Quite often I find the differences been the book and the tv or movie upsetting, at least at first. However I had no trouble accepting the books characters as being the ...
Enfants de poussière (2012)

English
series

review 1: This book isn't set too long after the last one, with some repurcussions from those events still effecting things. Walt and company are back in Wyoming at least, where they belong. The discovery of a body leads almost immediately to a run in with a wild man who becomes a suspec...
Hell Is Empty (2011)
language
English
series
4.29 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: The set up here is something you've probably seen before-- escaped dangerous prisoners, horrible storm closing in, hero left mostly on their own. So why should you read this? Several reasons. It's not the ingredients, it's what the chef does with them.Writing: Craig Johnson is...
Divorce Horse (2012)

English

review 1: I am probably swayed by the fact that this was a short, short story and they charged $1.99 for it. I also didn't quite get it...can someone explain it to me? I was also a bit concerned that Cady is drinking diet coke, coffee and only eating cottage cheese to lose weight for the ...
Christmas in Absaroka County (2012)

English
4.13 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Four unrelated Christmas stories about Walt Longmire:'Ministerial Aid' featured a hungover Longmire on the New Year's Day following the death of his wife being mistaken for a modern day Jesus by a mentally unstable woman. A bit less realism here than in the rest of the series, b...
