Though a little more violent in nature than what I am used to, I enjoyed the constant action of this book. The weaving of different information lines comes together beautifully in an ending that keeps you guessing until the end- Well, you know just enough to make you want to yell the answers out but not enough to take all aspects of surprise out of the experience. I highly recommend it.
I like a book that mixes horror and comedy - it's an awkward blend of suspense and release.
I liked this story - but there were a lot of spots where an editor could have improved the pacing and the dialog.
The narrator really kept it going and did a fantastic job conveying the alpha-male machismo that the story needed, and the story itself was a really good story, the action had a perfect mix of detail and mood.
The non-action parts tended to drag a bit, and the ending felt like the end of Peter Jackson's lord of the rings trilogy - just ending after ending after ending... but honestly - I enjoyed it enough that I'm looking forward to the next one.
This book has an engaging story line, lovable characters, and a lot of great humor. Kind of felt like a grown-up Rick Riordan novel. I really enjoyed this and will be picking up the rest of the Monster Hunter books.
Yes. It was much better than I thought it would be. It appeared it might be just a run of the mill monster story, but it's much more. Believable plot line and characters, really holds your interest.
The voices, the voices, and the voices.
Not really moved, just surprise after surprise.

This book was your typical monster hunter tale. There were a few twists that i truly enjoyed, and it was fun to listen to, but it wasn't spectacular. I'll listen to more in this series as I have credits, and I'll bet they get better. The only issue I had was that this is obviously written to start a series. Most books that start a series could easily be left independent, but there are too many loose ends for that here.
This is the type of book you pick up or listen to when you want to sit back, laugh a little and enjoy the ride. You can't take it seriously but the author does an outstanding job of keeping you engaged with twists, turns, and action that rarely slow down.
Little can compare to this book but the closest I can come when it comes to witty comments and style would be the Dresden Files
The opening scene catches you from the start. You don't know what to expect and then, BANG, the story is there in your face and you are off and running.
When you get to the end and all of Z's predecessors are there, well, read the book and you will understand what he just did.
Read it, listen to it. This is a story you can take in time and again and will be a mainstay when I need that escape from reality.
Any kind of fantasy book that has weird creatures in it.
It was one hell of a Christmas party!
MHI wants you! We just can't tell you!
I liked it. It had action, creatures, a little comedy, and it kept moving. There are many different types of events that lead so fast to the main event that you won't believe it's a 15+ hr book.The narrator was consistent, well paced and consistent.The down side is the gore. I just pushed through it but there is A LOT. However, I didn't just stop listening to it like I have with other similar types of books. The other part is the gun fascination. I got bored with the authors need to describe every gun and knife with precise detail. I'm more of a "see monster, kill monster" kind of reader. I don't care about the existential's.Overall, It's a solid well written, well narrated book. If you can handle the existential's, give it a shot.
... with a splash of Tolkein fantasy. What's not to like! Plus, the narrator is hilarious. Downloading the next book!
I love the way that Larry Correia is able to incorporate fiction and fact in a way that is believable with imagination. There is enough military jargon to hint that he either knows a lot about the military or he did years of research.
I like Earl Harbringer. I wont give away secrets but he is a mysterious powerful man that is like The Fonz of monster hunters.
I like that he is able to put enough inflection in his voice that you can audibly destinguish characters easily.
I dont like some of the female voices that he does but maybe it is because he is overdoing the accent. Being from Texas and not having a strong accent that stuff drives me crazy.

If you enjoy careless cinematic action films like Big Trouble in Little China and Last Action Hero, you will really like this book. This book was just plain fun! What a good entertaining book to listen to relieve some stress. Items I look for in a good book: 1)Characters you actually care about... check. 2)Good plot that makes you think ahead... check. 3)Good pace... check. This story is insanely involved in 20 minutes! Sure, some of the stunts and situations are over the top and the outcomes unrealistic... but it is FUN! It was fun to look up the monsters online as they came up in the story. You can feel how much fun the author had with this and it makes it a very good read. Definitely recommend! Thanks Larry! I just got part two and it just downloaded so I gotta go. later.
