Didn't watch any of the TV series but heard about it and decided to read the books. This first one was quite good so looking forward to the rest.

Not at all like Hillermans' Indian Policemen, Longmire is a completely different cup of tea, personally screwed up but apparently the worlds greatest shot-700 yards freehand-oh well the writing and character will develop and you will learn to love and understand this wild and wooly county in Wyoming.

I've been meaning to give this series a read and the first book has me hooked - am going to keep reading them. I also checked out the first episode of the tv series adaptation and it's good, too, but different as adaptations often are. I look forward to enjoying the continuing adventures of Walt Longmire in print and on tv.

Having seen the first four seasons of the Longmire TV series, I decided to read the first Longmire book in the series. Ahem, the TV series is better, which surprised me. The author, Craig Johnson, produced dialog that is never attributed, as in "he said," "she said," or "I said." As such, who is saying what is often garbled, which led to reread passages to figure who was talking. As far as the mystery goes, it was pretty good, though I had deduced who the perpetrator was halfway through the book.

I really enjoyed watching the TV show, so I picked up this first book in the Longmire series. I must say I honestly enjoyed the book too! Especially the banter between Longmire and Standing Bear. They work so well together.

The robust characters of the land and people completely captivated me, and the TV series is just as good!

The first in the series, whose main character is Walt Longmire, a sherif in Montana. The books are a fabulous combination of western and mystery with a little humor thrown in. All the characters have a real-life quality and keep to character. And, I'm always surprised somewhere along the way.
Highly recommended for anyone who likes mysteries, westerns, or just good writing and characterization.
Oh, and I disagree that the TV series is better. It feels truncated after reading the books. And has much less depth.
