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.
Monster Hunters is a fun and enjoyable book. This book is not real complicated, and it does not require a ton of thinking but it is still really entertaining. As a big guy myself, I found the description of Owen(the main character) to be spot on. Also, as a gun guy too, I found the author to be very knowledgeable and accurate in his firearm references. Give this book a chance, you will be hooked.
Great story, original and fresh.
Most memorable was on top of the pyramid and...not spoiling.
I would not have read it because of time...I listen as I drive.
I realy injoyed this book i spend most of my work day with a audio book playing while i work and most books i will tune in and out while i work but this one made me pay more attention then any before it story line was great charachters were awsome and somewhat relatable to definitly one worth having in your collection
Harry Turtledove fan
Yes. More than once.
The amazing storyline and the amazing amount of surprises the author brings about, enough to keep me on the edge. I actually started driving slowly to listen to more.
For instance, when Grant went missing, i assumed he was the one who invited Susan and had turned a betrayer, and would appear at the end of story ready to kill Pitt. But that was not the case.
Meanwhile i never thought the Cursed One would rise again and kill the Priestess.
Yes. Have listened to the Morning Star strain series. This is slightly better.
Laugh a lot and also was on the edge.
Superb author and superb narrator
Pretty close to the top.
Harbinger, because he's Harbinger.
He is an excellent narrator. Everything comes to life.
I bought this book on sale when I didn't have anything else to listen to. The premise was interesting sounding but the cover made me think twice, because it was so comic bookish and action adventure-ish looking. I put off listening to it for a while longer. I finally got around to it and am kicking myself for waiting for so long. I like sci-fi and paranormal books but this has a lot of "Die Hard" and "Terminator" action mixed in. The action-adventure stuff is not normally something I like but this was surprisingly great. I like that the hunters are (for the most part) vanilla humans (not witches, vampires and so on). The writing and story are classic sci-fi awesomeness. Wyman is an excellent narrator. He does male and female well as well as southern and northern and all the monster voices too. Great book!
Sci-fi/Fantasy geek :)
I wanted to rate this book higher. The writing style is very good, the action is good, the character interaction is good, but I felt like the characters should have been developed more. Within a very short amount of time the main character goes from zero, to hero, to god and that made it very hard for me to connect. I felt the same way about the overall story. It went from pedestrian daily life to interesting/challenging/scary to just plain freaky way to quick. Same old monster/non-human characters, boring, but we blow them up in lots of cool ways.
Just to be fair, I got a few more books from this series and will see if things get better. If this book were bad, I wouldn't have bought more, so even though I didn't "love" this book, I obviously liked it well enough to read some more. Maybe that sums it up for me :)
Writen from a male point of view...so refreshing. The story has a good pace and the narrator does an excellent job.
I have have to say this rates pretty high for this genre. It was a really pleasant surprise.
Narration was great!
