Just started reading the Longmire books, finished the first and part way through the second.
Two things - first, they have really changed some of the characters for the TV show. As noted before, Vic has been tamed down for TV. Also, Henry is a LOT different.
Second, the stuff in the show works well, in the spirit of the novels, in spite of the changes. The actor who portrays Walt Longmire has the right feel, IMHO, and even Henry pulls it off well. The show works, as an interpretation of the novels rather than a visualization of the novels.
