    Story
    (6044)

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book is completely formulaic, completely predictable, and solidly enjoyable. The villains are such complete caricatures, and they often act in completely stupid and inexplicable ways.


    What was most disappointing about Larry Correia’s story?

    The complete and utter lack of surprises, and an ending you see from a mile away. It's not like I was in this for a compelling, edge of my seat thriller, but there are long sections of exposition that only serve to lengthen the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's slow ponderous voice was extremely tedious. He dredged out the material, and seemed to only be able to do one female voice, and about three different male voices.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Definitely! This would make a fantastic action movie. With loving close ups of the guns instead of tedious descriptions of them.

  • Ready Player One

    Story
    (9716)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    What made the experience of listening to Ready Player One the most enjoyable?

    This book is simply phenomenal. One of the rare instances where listening to the book is even better than reading it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The references peppered throughout this book read like a love-letter to 80s gaming, music, movies, and pop-culture. Truly an otaku's wet dream.


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    Will Wheaton does a phenomenal job bringing the characters to life and making each of them feel truly distinct.
