While not the audio equivalent of a page-turner, it was a very good listen for me.
fast paced and entertaining but I can do with a little less cussing. The story line is really interesting but the ending always seem a kind of rediculous but it is still a very interesting story.
This was a great continuation of the Monster Hunters adventures. Read Monster Hunter International first or you may be a little lost.
Oliver Wyman did a great job with the characters.
Work a credit for sure!
Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.
The fun continues from book one, more Pitt v the Old Ones and there earthly counterparts along with help from the MHI team. Interesting take on old fairy tale tropes continues. Just fun to listen to. To bad there is only one more MHI book to enjoy now! More please, quickly!!!
The whole Monster Hunter series is excellent and the books are getting better with each new one. All the Monster Hunter books have plenty of action, humor and heart. If you want to read books with vampires, werewolves, and monsters that isn't written for 14 year old girls these books are for you. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
The narrator sounded like he was trying to imitate Robert Stack from The Untouchables, only more smarmy and bored, even during the action sequences. Which I couldn't understand, as he was fine when providing character voices--consistent, different from each other, and emotional. I quit listening about 2.5 hours into the book when I realized I didn't like the main character enough to put up with the narrator any more.
The central character. All the characters seemed to be walking cacti, growling and chest bumping at each other (women included).
I'm looking for a new series with magic, action, and interesting, evolving characters. I had to stop listening halfway through this one. This was more of a catalogue of evil creatures, horrible deaths, bodily fluids, and chainsaw type mayhem. I much prefer characters, including villains, to have self-awareness, an emotional life, and development! I loved Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, but of course I've yummed all 13 books down, and the next one will be a good old time coming. A Discovery of Witches was a bit heavy on description, but every bit of it moved the plot along and it was a good experience.
I don't think I'll try this author again for a while. This was more like skimming the horror comic books.
Was way way out there.....a whole lot of story. I listened to the whole thing (20 hours). Wouldn't recommend.
Um, there were a LOT of monsters. Kinda cheesy, it was "ok".
Some things like the gangster gnomes..... Really?
Again, eh. It was on sale and lots of hours of listening while sitting in traffic. Again, wouldn't highly recommend but it was kind of entertaining.
I have not even been able to get thru the first chapter. It is not holding my interest.
I will continue to listen to this for a little while longer to see if it catches my attention. I hope it changes soon or I will stop completely.
It doesn't hold my attention. First time by this author & Narrator.
