One of my all-time favorite series with excellent narration and a great story that's all you need to know. You will never consider this a wasted credit.
Ars longa, vita brevis
I have loved every "Monster Hunter" book. If you're looking for rip roaring escapist entertainment it doesn't get any better than this series.
The narrator doing a Christopher Walken impression for one of the characters.
Nikolai--because Christopher Walken
Mowing down undead with a giant woodchipper was pretty great.
I laughed nearly every time Nikolai talks for an extended time.
Finally finding time to enjoy my first love... "reading" ... in a whole new way that fits into my busy schedule.
As always, Larry Correia delivers a solid story. Installment #3 reveals to us a much more detailed look at Earl Harbinger. Oliver Wyman does an excellent job at narrating the story. I had but one character stumbling block (and I use that term lightly because I quickly got used to it). The voice of Nikolai sounds to me A LOT like the cadence of Christopher Walken. I like the actor, but I found it an odd choice considering the character is Russian.
There were several distracting changes in the narration voice. Hard to tell if it was the same person after getting punched in the throat or someone else entirely. Sloppy production work in any case. The narrator is fantastic, though one character sounds like an excellent Christopher Walken impersonation, he does a great job.
The story of Earl Harbinger and the uncobering of Special Task Force Unicorn. The revealing of the war that is to come. Monster Hunter Alpha shows the changes to a main character and the discovery of another. We also meet Owen Zastava Pitt's near murder, Jason Lacoco. A story worthy of inclusion in the Monster Hunter series.
My favorite of the series, this iteration is a bit of a departure from the others and follows one of my favorite characters from the series, Earl, as he goes to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to deal with werewolf issues. Earl is a chain-smoking, straight talking, badass werewolf and the leader of Monster Hunter International.
You get some background on Earl sprinkled in with lots of Earl-isms all throughout the story. Once Earl gets fired up and puts the smack down on some pompous ass of a monster or miscellaneous MCB agent, I get a smile on my face and just enjoy the ride. The story is good, but it really takes a back seat to just hearing Earl be Earl.
I almost never re-listen to audiobooks, but I am now half way through my second round and was inspired to tell everyone what a great listen this one is. Do yourself a favor and try this series if only to get to this book.
