I have already listened to the series 1-1/2 times. I am a speed listener and sometimes miss pertinent facts when listening the first time through. I love to re-listen several times to the MHI stories because I always pick up something new that enriches the listening experience.
This is the the second time that I have read a book that is centered around a military theme. The first was the Alera series by Jim Butcher. Both authors handle the military themes in detail, but in such a way as to make their stories interesting to me. It also helps that there are romances in both series. I must say that the Alera series is probably my favorite audio experience ever, so comparing MH Legion to that series is high praise from me!
I LOVE the way Mr. Wyman does the deep scary voices. He handles alien accents, both friendly and enemy very well. He also handles non-American accents well (at least as far as I am concerned). He also changes the tempo of his reading when appropriate. A beautiful performance!
Yes - I didn't realize it was out until late last week, so I purchased it immediately, but held off reading it until 5 pm Friday, when I left work. What a great way to spend my weekend!
I look forward to the next book. For those of you thinking about starting this series, please do - it is well worth your time and money.
I am a pretty hardcore Fantasy, Epic Fantasy and Urban Fantasy Reader. Read Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson!!!!
Up in the top 5 series
Oliver Wyman is perfect for this book. This is an outstanding performance.
I absolutely love this entire series, and the way that Larry Correia writes it. This latest addition is no exception, and is everything I had hoped for as an addition to the series.
I stumbled on this series, and was hooked in the first 15 minutes. Each story is original, and this was no exception. In fact this book is better than the previous books. Is that possible? If you like Harry Dresden, you'll like this series. The two series cover completely different material, but the underlying sense of humor and the original plots are common characteristics. And Zee and Harry are both tall and capable.
The downside of discovering a fresh and new book that becomes a series is the waiting! It's like waiting for Christmas when you were 5 years old. Wait, is that a bad thing?
I would have to say this book ranks in my top fifteen books I have listened to on Audible.
It followed along with the story so far and combined the characters from Monster Hunter Alpha into the plot.
He brings the characters to life and puts the right inflection on the dialogue that may have been missed when reading.
Most of Larry's Books I want to listen to in one sitting, but I have to eat, work, sleep, and shower. His books are very enthralling.
100% testosterone. So unbelievable and yet that is what makes this series so good. Ready for the next one. The narration is perfect for the attitude of the book. Very entertaining.
This is one seriously kickass romp through Las Vegas in ways you won't see coming.
Larry tells a helluva story and Oliver really reads it well, top notch in all ways!
New bad men,some questions answered and some new questions asked. Agent Franks is back in book 3,thank goodness. Why couldn't i figure out who he was sooner?? Im not going to recap the publishers description of this book. If you love the MHI books,then you will love this 4th book in the series. I cant wait for the next book.
OK, I screwed up and listened to this one out of order, it is the fourth book in the series when I should have been reading the third, Monster Hunter Alpha. Luckily the third book focuses on Earl so much that reading them out of order didn’t mess up the story line for me too much. But when you read them, I highly recommend reading them in the correct order.
Oliver Wyman continues to narrate the audio book and does so with great success.
If you are the type that does not trust the government and believes that they would do anything to create bigger and better weapons, even human experimentation, then this book is for you.
I am amazed at the amount of character development Larry Correia is able to slip in between the high-speed action of his stories. Owen and Julie’s relationship continues to grow and Mosh even gets to grow all while the action never pauses to take a breath. Great stuff.
Geek, Gamer who hates wasting credits.
If you are a fan of the whole MHI world then you already have this book so stop reading.
If you have not read Monster Hunter International, then don’t start here. Start with 1st book then if you become a fan like me you will buy this book. Now talking to other fans to me this is the weakest of the book so far.
First of all the I love the world and characters that Larry Correia has created. And Oliver Wyman narration brings everything to life, GREAT NARRATION!!
The interwoven complex plot, it keeps building and building
He owns these characters
