My friends enjoy reading action with fantasy and a lot of gratuitous violence.
I liked the main character, Owen, but I think my favorite was Earl. No-nonsense and stops an argument with a well placed look rather than fist.
He did a great job with the voices and the dialog flowed very fluidly.
Overall, an AWESOME thing to listen to while stuck in traffic! The gratuitous (and detailed to the level of the serial numbers of the guns) violence really helped diffuse the traffic tension!
The story was good, but didn't leave me wanting to get any more in the series. I didn't care for the narrator. His performance was pretty monotonous.
I like a little more romance in my fantansy books but when they started calling out alll the small towns all around Alabama. It was great. It was also has some pretty funny belly laugh lines in it.
Oliver Wyman's performance is amazing and Larry Correia's story keeps you captivated throughout the story.
When Owen reaches for the power of the artifact at Nachy Bottoms when everybody dies. Also, Owens self control while using the artifact.
Wow! I listened to MHI twice. During the second listen I suddenly realized that ONE person was doing the voices. Oliver's characters had depth and his voice had such control I never thought all those characters were comming from one person. I've listened to other Audible books but no one performs like Oliver Wyman.
Keep Oliver Wyman working!
Say something about yourself!
Monsters Are Real
I'd have to say Earl, because well you'll have to find out for yourself.;
Every character was great they all had their own voice with is great.
I listened to this book 3 times in one month and probably listen to it again and again
Worth the credit or however much it cost. A must have for your library...
Larry is amazing. His character development, his interweaved plot and subplots, his attention to detail and vivid description which brings the story to life. He has the true makings of a sci-fi master.
You quickly start to develop a liking for the characters and understand their motives. As the story grows so do they drawing you deeper and deeper.
Give it a try you'll like it!
The narrator brings all the characters to life. He is an amazing vocal talent, switching voices, dialects and genders seemlessly. Also, the story is original and packed with action, mysteries, hilarious family dynamics (check out the parents!). You will love Owen in very short order. More than your average accountant.
Hard to say, it has so many twists and turns. It has some suprisingly moving moments, that I was not expecting.
All of it. It is flawless and fun to listen to!
It's a family business.....
I have ordered the entire series, based on how much I enjoyed the first. The gradual unfolding of plot and character make this special. The author truly reels you in and the surprises never end. Enjoy!
I have to save my sensitive eyes for thesis-writing, so audiobooks are how I keep up with my favourite authors and have fun.
I admit, at first I had my doubts and bought this book since it was on sale. But after one listen I was hooked. This is a well-written, funny, balls-to-the-wall adventure with a supernatural twist. Seriously - get the whole series - they're well worth the credits!
I do not own the print version
Full of action and interesting monsters
Pitt of course
It made me laugh many times
This is a great book for anyone who loves action, monsters, and guns. there were no slow or boring parts the entire book was great. I just bought the second book in the series Vendetta.
The entire story is the narrator's POV, I would have liked to see more from the other characters.
It's a waiting in the airport book - good for killing time, but not much else.
He's a great narrator.
I'm not current enough with the pantheon of movie stars - but it would probably make a boffo movie.
