I usually don’t think it’s fair to judge an adaptation against its source material and vice versa so I’m disappointed in myself for saying that I like the tv show more. At least in this first book. The best parts of the show—Henry and Longmire’s friendship and Vic’s relentless, profanity-laden attempts to deal with her new life in a small town—were present in this and were still great but the story didn’t quite work for me. The show did this particular storyline but it ended differently and, in my opinion, in a much more satisfactory way. I hope I can enjoy the next book a little more. ( )

I had come across this TV series title several times on Netflix before actually taking the time to watch it. Needless to say, I found it hard not to like Robert Taylor's portrayal of Walt Longmire. After having watched a season-plus of episodes, I decided I needed to read the books, to see what was missing. I was not disappointed.

As a big fan of Robert B. Parker's series of Spenser, this quickly jumped into a series I wanted to read. Though it does, obviously, start with book one mirroring one of the episodes from the television series, there are enough differences I feel like I am not reading a novelization. Johnson does well in bringing what would normally appear mundane for a small-time sheriff into the a mystery that requires interaction with other characters as eccentric as the sheriff in order to solve this crime of murder. With a nice twist I was not expecting at the end, Johnson has shown he has the feel of a great western-mystery writer. ( )

Grabbed the book because I vaguely liked the show in a passing sort of a way. Turns out what Craig Johnson writes resonates with me, taking forays into odd side canyons along the way, and mixing culture the way I grew up with. This, than, and the other thing: A nice stew over time, all the flavors got together.

Totally not a subject matter I normally read, but by the kittens and sweet sky, I'll be reading the rest of his work if it's similar.

Best book I've picked up this year, and that's out of some damn fine reading. ( )

I loved the Longmire television series. When I first started watching it, I did not realize it was based on a book series by Craig Johnson. Usually I have a rule that I read the books first before watching a television or movie adaption of a story....but this time, I did things backwards. Turns out....that's ok. The television series is a lot different than the books.

For those who watched the television series, the characters are similar...but different at the same time. My two favorite side characters in the books...and the show....are Vic Moretti and Henry Standing Bear. In the books, Vic is much more mouthy. There were moments that her commentary made me laugh out loud as I read. She pops off at Longmire most of the time, but she is very skilled at her job and has a deep affection for her boss. Henry Standing Bear has been a friend of Longmire's since they served in Vietnam. They are truly friends, and Longmire knows when to call on Henry for help. One line from the show that is directly from the book made me smile. Henry answers the phone at his bar "It is a beautiful day at the Red Pony and continual soiree.'' LOL I love it!

In this first book, a teenager is found dead in Absaroka County near the reservation. Turns out, the boy was involved in the rape of a Cheyenne girl. He and three other boys got off lightly, despite the fact the girl was mentally challenged. As Longmire and his officers investigate the killing, he realizes the other boys might also be in danger. It's a race to find out who is seeking revenge before all of the boys are dead.

I listened to the audio version of this book (Recorded Books). Narrated by George Guidall, the audio is just shy of 13.5 hours long. Guidall gives a great performance! I like his voice and he does a great job of voice acting. Awesome listening experience! ( )

First in series of Longmire books. Walt and the crowd are different than Netflix series, more sarcastic and loose. This involves the beating and gang rape of young indian girl, and kids get off easy. Then they are hunted and murdered. ( )
