Fast, bang, enthralling
Does a great job distinguishing the characters/voices.
It starts with a bang, and then it sweeps you away. It is written with a strong sense of macho male bravado so it is corny at points. However it surprises with humor when you least expect it. The story captivated me and I blew through all 23 hours in less than a week!
This book was a fun diversion that begins with a bang and just never slows the action until the end. It's not deep literature and the characters aren't from a Henry James novel. So what? If you're like me and you listen to audio books to fend off the boredom of yard work and other dull things, then entertainment is a good thing. "Monters, Inc." is entertaining. Try not to think so much.
"Monsters, Inc." treats vampires, werewolves and their ilk in the traditional way. The vampires don't sparkle or distain blood for the love of their teenage sweetheart. These monsters rip out their victim's throats and toss their bodies aside like empty peanut shells - like they did in the comic books you grew up with. The Team from Monsters, Inc. are on call to eradicate such pests from your home, at a price. I like this idea.
Having said that, I've been reluctant to pick up any of the sequels. I enjoyed this book but I think one is enough.
Say something about yourself!
Absolutely. I loved the adventure and the mystery. The action was fabulous.
I'm just getting started with these kinds of books. I hope good ones like this don't prove to be rare.
There were many, but the opening chapter was the real hook.
I was so torn between wanting to see how it would end, and hating to see it end, that I started my search for its sequel before I was half way through it. It was a relief to see that the story was not over with the completion of this book.
I loved this book so much I bought a hard copy and sent it to my son who was serving as a Navy Corpsman in Afghanistan. Some of his friends found it pretty awesome too. In fact, he complained about having to search among his buddies for his book each time he got a chance to read. He was very keen to get the rest of the series too.
Fanatical, Magical, Bloody Awesome
When he overcame the Lord Mashadow.
All of the voices he uses.
Werewolves die, kill it with your bare hand.
I really recommend the series
I love the characters. The descriptions of them all. I feel as if I could know them if I saw them on the strret. I enjoy the story. This is my kind of book.
My favorites are Milo and Earl.
Yes. I have listened to it over and over. This is the book I listen to when I have to get stuff done.
I have all the books in hardback and audible. I can't wait for what happens next!
Monsters, guns, and non stop action. Have you ever watched a monster movie and wondered what would happen if the characters were actually smart and armed? Well Larry Correia has now answered that question. And what an answer! Non-stop action and fun, with enough technical goodies to appreciate without being annoying.
I really enjoyed this book. The story moved at a steady pace keeping me interested from beginning to end. The characters are well thought out and behave as you would think normal people would in their position, much more believable than other stories of the same genre. You will not be disappointed.
Fast-paced, action, entertaining.
He really does a great job sounding like the characters are described if that makes sense. No irritating mannerisms, easy to listen to.
Based on the title of this book I was prepared for it to be really awful. I was pleasantly surprised that it was one of the best I've listened to recently. I'm now on the next book in the series.
This is by far the best book I have ever listened too. Larry Correia is my knew favorite author. I am actually looking forward to listening to this book again. I even purchased a couple paperback copies and have given them to some of my friends. This is a must listen for anyone who likes an action packed story.
I was skeptical when I got the book, but to my surprise I really enjoyed it.
The main character takes a lickin and keeps on tickin
Wyman was able to switch characters seamlessly and does voices well.
I laughed many times and really enjoyed the writers sense of humour.
A bit juvenile in places, I wonder who the writer’s target audience is.
