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.
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.

I can't decide which I like better, the action packed story line or Oliver Wyman's narration! I've listened to this audio book over and over again. It is the book I use to lure skeptical friends into listening to audio books. The narration is fantastic, the story is never boring, and even though I've listened to it several times, I find myself lingering in the car, or staying up a bit later than intended just to listen a bit longer. It's just plain awesome, as are its sequels, Monster Hunter Vendetta and Monster Hunter Alpha.
The basic plot is an easy one: monsters are real, people hunt them in secret to collect bounties on them. Larry Correia writes action scenes that feel like movies and Wyman's narration compliments them perfectly. The edge of your seat action is interspersed with snarky humor and moments of deep emotion. And plenty of serious butt-kicking.
Do your self a favor and just listen. You won't regret it. Just be prepared to be listening long into the night!
I wasn't sure what to expect, but this story was great! The 1st chapter was action packed and it never stopped. Awesome characters ands story line... let's hope there isn't a big conspiracy covering up the truth about monsters really existing!
