Plot and characters offer few surprises. Language is sometimes awkward. Larry Correia uses the word "was" entirely too often.
Action is good and tense. Narrator does a good job with character voices, but doesn't break immersion.
This reads like a half-decent novelization of a really good action movie.
Ready to enjoy great books!
I haven't come across a 15+ hour book that I've enjoyed so much since Eye of the World. The narrartor is superb, I was grining from ear to ear within the first chapter thinking "ooooo this is going to be good". The battles are detailed and epic! I've read and listen to tons of monster novels this one still had me saying "didn't see that coming". Loved the entire book and downloading book 2 now ;-)
This is by far the highest ratings that I can give an audio book.
I liked the never ending situations that Z ended up in.
The very beginning. " Is that a hand?" I liked the humor added in to make this book a
I laughed a lot.
This audio was hard to stop listening to. Even to take a break. The last time that happened, was with the Eragon and Harry Potter series. I highly recommend this audio. It is well worth the time.
Writen from a male point of view...so refreshing. The story has a good pace and the narrator does an excellent job.
Great stuff. The stuff of "b" movies......especially if you like guns..I don't. Worth a second listen.
The narration, and the author's sly sense of humor...
The dead Russian guy..
I didn't quite like that he killed Conquistador, after his cursed was lifted, oh well..
Yeah an engaging listen afteran improbable opening , though its a story that must have been told , hundred times though,it was very entertaining and flawessly read.
Though also it was a bit unimaginative for the author to have to use firearms so much throughout the story, he mus tbe a real gun nut. You wonder what kind of munitions and firearms would take out a vampire?
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.
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!
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...
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!
