Exciting, unsuspecting, awesome.
Um spoilers! Knowing even when evil is removed the bad guy bites it anyways.
Um a great personality to Owen.
Could have but its like a movie mini series each chapter is like an episode. So if I was binge watching it I could do it in one sitting. But in this case binge listening.
Larry your fantastic. I wish so much for a few more narrators at least one for the female lines. Oliver is okay in his female voice. But I felt Julie needed more justice to her beauty
Let me first say that if you want high fiction, look elsewhere. This story is FUN. It's interesting, it possesses some plot twists, but ultimately it is an action-packed, good-guys-win-bad-guys-lose adventure.
The story made me bark out laughter several times. Pitt can be a wise-ass, and in keeping with the mostly light, fun story, the bad guys get what's coming to them. I got a warm fuzzy feeling when Pitt threw Grant Jefferson off the ship, and I might have even said,"Ha, the prick deserved it" out loud.
If you like guns, explosions, guns, violence, guns, and an easily accessible love story with likeable characters and guns, this one is for you.
I thought this was going to be a fluff type of book, and in a sense it is. But I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It is a great combination of underdog story, love story,and mercenary story overlaid with a rich supernatural tapestry. I guarantee this is one book that you will have a hard time putting down.
Oh, and if you like guns, this book is for you! The author knows his stuff and there are lots of descriptions of the firepower1
If you like 80's action movies, horror movies, guns, comedy, and awesome, then you need this book.
This is the first three books of the "Monster Hunters" series. If, like Larry, you like b-grade horror movies and guns, you'll love this series. In a world where monsters are real & the government is keeping them secret, Monster Hunters International can be thought of as being along the lines of Blackwater with silver bullets. Great action scenes, compelling characters, and enough humor to keep things from being too grim. A great read!
Yes. Great story, full of action and humor. Lots of language though, FYI.
Pitt - He's a bad-A
great voice variation. Added a lot of life to the characters.
MHI is a fast and loose. Its like the A-Team crashed its van into Sam and Dean from Supernatural, and splattered gore on a bunch of frat-house girls crossing the street, and the whole lot of them stopped to laugh at the scene.
Seriously - Great book. Larry has a great style. Yeah, he's known for describing the hardware, but, well, that's awesome.
The plot is solid, the humor is good, and there were even some nice twists salt and peppered throughout the novel. I'll certainly be picking up the next book in the series.
If I had to sum it all up, I'd say this is pure entertainment.
Also, I've had the pleasure of attending some conferences in which Larry spoke. He's a great guy, and I saw the same fun spirit with which he writes come out in person.
I like my horror, techno-thrillers, and science fiction. Which is why Jurassic Park and The Lost World are 2 of my favorite books ever!
This is a rollercoaster of a book, with an irreverant and clever take on traditional Hollywood monster sterotypes. Great sense of humor, fun (and often funny) characters, and a plot that perfectly sets you up for future books, which there are more than a few. Oliver Wyman is up there as one of the premiere narrators, with excellent variations and accents for all the characters. An absolute blast!!!
The story line is a great part of this kicking the hell out of monsters story. And it hooked me for the next book in the series.
The whole book is great. It's so hard to pick just one part.
Owen Pitt, He starts kick but and he just keeps doing what he is best at.
Skippy, He did that one justice. Great job Oliver Wyman, Two thumbs up.
I have a 40 minute commute each way and with out Audible, I'd go crazy! My fav genre is fantasy and I love a great series!
This is an awesome series! If your looking for an excellent start to a great story, you've found it here! The narrator is amazing, sometimes it seems like a different person speaking, he's so good - and he nails each characters personality perfectly. Great start to a great series, this book has likable characters that you learn more about as the series progresses. You care about them and want to know more, which, to me, is what a good story is all about.
Monster Hunter International starts a little slow but it picks up steam pretty well. It is an entertaining fantasy set in the modern time in the southern US states. It is well performed with each character with a distinct voicing and good tone and rythm.
MHI is a little cliche but it is a fun little romp through ledgends with lots of shooting and gore to keep things interesting.
MHI was the most entertaining listen I have had in a long time.
Ohh yes indeed. Its a great story to listen to.
Recently started listening to audible so havnt heard enough to compare.
A good sens of whats going on in the story.
