I would recommend this book to a friend because of what a fantastic job Oliver Wyman does to get you sucked in. I would recommend, but you can't go into this book and take it 100% serious.
I wouldn't change anything, it's refreshing to me. I enjoy the way it's written, it paints a clear visual in your head and it's very easy to follow. On that note I rated it 4/5 because it's such a cheesy story, but it's still very enjoyable.
Oliver does a fantastic job of giving you a clear idea of what is going on. He seems patient and is very clear in delivering the story. I never felt like I needed to rewind because I felt like I missed anything. Oliver complimented the story telling very well.
There's not much it can inspire you to do I suppose haha.
This book is truly wonderful and refreshing. It's not a serious and dark audiobook, it's like a cheesy movie you can't help but sit back and enjoy. There is out there moments that make me wonder what the author was thinking. This kind of story that such high profile attacks like a horde of zombies attacking a crowded resort and yet... Still they're unheard of? I find it insane, but it's something that I have enjoyed listening to.
Mom who reads
The monster hunter series is a fun story. I have enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend you download and enjoy this series. It does have a little language, but it doesn't get in the way. I listen to the series with my teens in the car with me, but I wouldn't do so if my young nieces were with me.
Same as the others Awesome
All of it Action n more Action
All of it
Yes n Yes
Another movie keep it true to the story
Fantastic story builds very nicely on the 1st book. Oliver Wyman does a terrific job. You can almost see what is going on in your imagination.
Very unpredictable! Just when you think you know where the story is going, something else happens.
How can you not like Owen Zistava Pitt!
A movie could not do this book justice. Too much good stuff would have to be left out.
Can't wait to start the 3rd installment to this fun series. Go MHI!!
If you liked the first of this series then all you need to know is this one is better. The story is more action packed, the zombies are still zombies and Owen is still a badass meathead. There are dark forces at work and you can tell this is just the tip of the iceberg. The narration is as good as the first of the series. Can't wait to start the next to see what the old ones are going to try to throw at Owen next.
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
I loved every minute of it. Its great to read about a big ugly guy who vanquishes evil and gets the beautiful girl to see that he's worth loving.
Probably have nightmares giving this five stars. This is a very long pure low rent pulp fiction novel filled with corny cliches that make you cringe. Why five stars? For me it did exactly what, I hope, the author intended, It entertained me. I loved the listen and even came to expect and enjoy the cheesy cliches and over the top story line. Not sure how Correia found a publisher with enough foresite (and guts?) to publish these novels but I am glad he did.
I'm a professional driver so I have a lot of time on my hands, and I love Sci-fi and Fantasy
One of the best. Tons of action and dead monsters.
The lead "Z" is still my fav, but not by much, because I really liked all the characters.
I almost did, but I have to eat and sleep sometime.
If they had read/listened to the first book I wouldn't need to - it's more of the same fantastic story.
Love Agent Franks in this book. I know we are meant to hate him but the more we find out about him the more we understand.
If you enjoyed the first book, then you'll love the second. Further character development, more background to the story and more information on the characters past and the secrets they didn't share in the first book.
Another win for both the author and the narrator. Both are awesome! Can't wait for the next book in this series. The narrator is such a perfect fit and brings this 2nd book in the series to life like the first one never ended. Overall, this is my favourite series to listen to currently and have bought them all! You won't be disappointed!
Well Owen Z Pitt of course! Although, I have to say Oliver's voice portrayal of Skippy in both this and the first book had me laughing out loud,during my workout no less, making people steer a wide berth around me while giving me odd looks...
Oh, he absolutely brings the story to life, and does so for all of the Monster Hunter series. This voice actor was a perfect fit. I have downloaded other books based just on the fact that he is narrating. He has an amazing ability to not only alter voices so much you forget it's the same person, but to pitch the humorous sarcasm so perfectly...it's simply a work of art.
Yes. I usually limit my listening to housework and gym but I couldn't with this one. I listened to and from work, while making dinner, and any other time I could get away with it. My daughter got so used to my laughing at, well, let's face it, nothing anyone else could figure out, she often just pointed to my ears, shook her head and walked away.
