Yes its fast and fun.
When Owen meets Management
He does them all very well. I couldnt pick a favorite. He even gets Skippy right
The whole series is great. I hope he can keep these up!!!
I recommend it, it is a really good book and I never want to stop listening to do anything else.
Older, crankier, happier and still a bibliophile!
Exciting, fun, BOOM!
Somewhat reminiscent of David Eddings series (mix of other worldliness, character development, action, and fun... but Correia takes the concepts and takes them to the next levels. His characters are smarter, less predictable, and grow throughout the story. Enough connection in the story thread to be meaningful and comforting, but never stale or redundant.
I have never listened to O. Wyman before listening to this series. THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE.
This book and the 3 proceeding... In fact, except for this one I have listened to all of them more than once.
Wow! Boom! Gasp! Cringe! Guffaw!
Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell
More Monsters, More Monster Hunters, Bigger Guns, Bigger Explosions and Velvet Elvis, Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman's latest Monster Hunter International collaboration is 16 hours and 35 minutes of adrenaline soaked action. Owen, Earl, Julie, Trip, Holly, Milo, Skippy, and Ed head to Vegas for the first ever International convention of monster hunters and Sin City will never be the same.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas but the larger than life antics of our favourite characters threaten to overwhelm this folklore maxim. Larry Correia supplies another gripping adventure interlaced with twists, back stories, and just a touch of romance while Oliver Wyman's performance breathes life into the characters and gives the story wings.
Monster Hunter Legion does a great job of tying the three previous ( International, Vendetta, and Alpha) novels together and lays the foundation for even greater adventures. This series just keeps getting better.
My only negative is waiting for the next book in the series.
Oliver Wyman is a very enthusiastic and creative reader. Larry Correia continues his basic premise of hero's vs. villains in another inventive and original scenario.
I think all of the characters are cleverly created and unique, but don't you have to give 2 thumbs up to a stripper turned monster hunter?
This is a simple series of evil vs. good. Its strongest moments are when characters are unconditionally committed to the success of their mission, willing to risk it all, and there are many such situations.
Read the books in order for maximum enjoyment and understanding
If there was a complaint about Mr. Correia's books, then it would be "why can't they be longer and release a bit faster...however, you can't ask for a more enjoyable "kickass" story (series) that just make the miles and time fly by. Keep 'em coming Larry! Can't wait to see what happens with Franks. And "Z" is just AWESOME!!!!
I loved everything. OZP, Julie, everyone is back in one way or another (if your following the series) The Monsters, the Magic, the weapons of mass destruction, and yet it ain't over.
The closest thing is "Army of Darkness" but it really does not compare. This is so different and edgier.
Owen Z. Pitt, his Brother Mosh, and Earl are just a few of my favorites.
I would have but I did have to sleep.....LOL.
I am so hungry for the next book in this series, and I hope we won't have to wait foo long. Larry Correia's other series "Hard Magic" is also really good and still waiting for book three on that one. I'm totally hooked on Larry Correia. BTW on the "Hard Magic" series Bronson Pinchot does the narration and he is totally AWESOME. He narrates "Presidents Vampire" series which is really excellent.
If you liked the other three books of the series you will like this one.
Monster Hunter Legion is a fun filled story, that follows the same pace and fun of the other novels in this series. If you are new to the series, the author does a reasonable job at bringing new readers up to speed, without too much rehashing that leaves other fans bored.The action and characters move at a good pace. This is not a heady, overly thought provoking sci-fi novel. It's not an idiotic slaughter fest either. It fits somewhere in between, focusing more on the relationships between various characters and the consequences of their actions or inactions.
If you enjoyed the other novels and want more of the same, this is the book for you. The book introduces some of the 'species' and monster types that have been alluded to in other books of the series as well as some new monsters. I especially love the unconventional roles the monsters play in this book. Correia likes to twist roles from antagonist to protagonist, switching your emotions from hate to love to pity throughout the story.
For those who are familiar with the series, this book's overall theme seemed to be that of forgiveness. It explored many of the relationships in the other books, and how one must forgive one's self for their own actions, forgive others for their actions against us, etc. There were some loose ends in the story I wish were tied up better or rather I hope are tied up better in the next book. I am going to mention a name, maybe the author will see this, maybe he will not...Jason Lacoco, and how he is part of the story. I hope we continue to see more of him. I tried to say that without spoiling the story. Anyways, great story, lots of fun, I highly recommend it.
Say something about yourself!
To me I love audiobooks and Oliver Wyman does a great job yet again. Every character has their own voice and I can tell one person from the other, instead of every character sounding like me. So I'd consider the audio version to be better...
I would have to say Earl would be my favorite character, cuz that guy don't take no crap from no one...
That guy can't do no wrong in when he reads a book, he has a great voice. He gives each character their own voice and it makes things very easy to follow the story.
I almost did, I listen to most of it in one day. The only reason why I stretched it out is so I wont be bored at work the next day. But I can definitely listen to this book in one sitting.
Great book, I recommend this book and every other Larry Correia book to anyone who likes action, guns and just plain great story telling...
