action plot interesting
The character development good story
First time listening to him he is one of the good ones will listen to him again
Monsters are real
If they make a movie please don't let tom cruise be Owen not like Reacher movie
It's a new idea for a series. Really good book and kept my interest throughout the book. It's worth a try.
Yes, the story is great, and the way it is read makes it even more enjoyable. Great character development, action and lore. The only problem I had with this book is how much detail it goes into for each gun type, as most of the characters love guns. If you're a gun fanatic this will please you, but for those of us who aren't it was tedious.
I don't think I have read this type of horror before. It has humor, action, lore and good times. I imagine the closest thing is the Harry Dresden series.
Oliver does a great job changing voices and adding accents to match both the age and location of the person.
Better than print, but I didn't read the print.
Good pace. Goes down the south American myth ath which is relatively new to me.
Good but slow. Pacing improved with audible app at 1.5x
Funny Parts, good imaginative action. Shallow female character Julie is painful to listen to.
Action- packed, comical, intriguing
This is my first fantasy listen.
Owen, Earl, and Sam were equally my favorites, but Earl stood out the mostly due to humor and his practical way of looking at things.
I wasn't sure if this was a book I would enjoy. The premise seemed interesting, but...but...I wasn't sure. I'm happy to report that the story immediately grabbed my attention and held tight throughout most of the book. Like several other series I've read, present-day earth is inhabited by monsters. However, the public isn't aware of the dangerous creatures lurking in the dark. The government wants to keep this information a secret. Yes, the same old story, but told in a fresh and interesting way.
I love that monster hunters is a family-owned/run business. As with all families, there are some members that we would call the "black sheep" of the family. As the story unfolds, there is much action, humor and even a little romance. The characters are very likeable, even though some of them are a bit more military-minded than I usually enjoy. However, the paranormal storyline does explain the need for the gungho approach to things.
When I first started listening I wasn't sure if I liked his reading of the story. However, I quickly forgot that I was "listening" to a book. I soon found his reading so well done that I became absorbed in the story and forgot there was a "reader" involved. That is the best compliment I can hand a performer. Well done, Mr. Wyman.
How about "You should be afraid of the dark"? Or possibly "It's raining frogs!"
I look forward to reading book two of this series.
This book was riveting. I kept trying to find excuses to do things that i could do while listening to the book. The narrator was great. He brought all the characters to life. There is so much action going on in the book that one has to pay attention at all times. There is some mild language, and a lot of blood and gore. I recommended my son to listen and he too enjoyed it.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This book was jam-packed with action. Correia does not take himself too seriously and here he has created a fun read with likable characters. I would probably never read this book, but found it great to listen to.
Probably in a year or two once I've forgotten the story line, I generally don't see movies twice either. I listened to the second book "Vendetta" about 6 months back not realising it was part of a trilogy, so I’m currently listening to book Vendetta again, and enjoying it just as much the second time around.
There were a few, mostly I enjoyed the writers sense of humour.
He's very good at expressing the characters in the story and a real pleaure to listen to.
This is one of the most fun monster stories I've ever read or listened to. The story is far-fetched at times, but always with an attitude and a smirk. I especially liked that Owen isn't another remarkable pretty boy, but a real guy, not so perfect, with just a few "little" issues.
While the story would have been really, really good by another reader, Oliver Wyman's performance is so remarkable I often forget I was listening to only one guy! He's just skyrocketed to the top of my favorite readers list, and I'll be looking for more of his recordings.
