Mr. O'Malley offers a refreshing take on monster hunting. This tale could be dismissed as a British "Men in Black" ripoff, but it's far more inventive and witty. My only complaint is that the payoff (finding out the identity of someone who is hinted at throughout the book) was a bit anti-climatic. Still, the book was immensely enjoyable, and I look forward to more adventures with Myfanwy.
highly entertaining, funny, very imaginative. densely packed within a rich, imaginative world. I'd highly recommend.
This is a very interesting book. If you like a little bit sci-fi, a little bit supernatural you'll enjoy this book. In a way I'd compare it to a BBC version of Men in Black. Miffany Thomas is the main character and she's a member of a group that is in charge of policing and monitoring supernatural activity in Great Britain. Someone has stole her memory. She spends the entire book trying to piece together her life and hide her amnesia from her coworkers all while trying to figure out who is trying to get rid of her. Great read!
Well worth the credit. A fantastic first book read greatly. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with what was past and present but overalls I would totally recommend this book.
I highly recommend this book on audiobook! The reader was spectacular and the story was engaging and full of wonderful details!
Monster MI5 is a fun genre but O'Malley has given the main character such a wonderful snarky sense of humor that is perfectly emphasized by Susan Duerden's reading. I can't help laughing out loud listening to the book. This is my favorite of my audible books and I have listened to it quite a few times.
It's hard to come up with anything negative to say about this book. It had very compelling characters, enough action to keep me interested--although it wasn't a lot, and a fresh way of doing the whole lost memory angle. You are definitely going to want more after you finish. However, there is no second book available yet. I highly recommend giving this a listen.
A great new heroine, I am excited for the next one. I think o'malley is well on his way to establishing a memorable and unique universe.
Great, fun story with surprisingly excellent narration. At first I thought the narrator was sounding too repetitive in her intonation, but once the multiple characters entered the story, she really started to show wonderful variety and I was really engaged. I had a great time listening to this, and will totally recommend to friends.
Disappointed by the ending, very anticlimactic and went in a direction that didn't make much sense compared to the brilliant writing of the rest of the book.
