Peter Clines is a great story teller and this story is no exception. The Heroes are all very cool especially Corpse Girl and Captain Freedom. I hoped that Capt Freedom adopted Corpse girl it seemed the perfect out come.Im starting to like the Rodney character for some reason hope he get more page time in the next one....Zap is funny and Stealth is her usual all knowing self but drops a little more of her mystery in this one.Yip get it just for Capt Freedoms voice if not for the great story.
This is a very cool book about some major losers. Is that possible and the answer is absolutely. You find yourself disliking one or all of the central characters at least one or often multiple times.through the book. But its a unusual tale it grows on you like a foot fungus and before you know it its become an object of facination as you want to see how it develops as you pick away the layers while not totally at ease with its exhistance. Get it its the best bit of mindless entertainment you will come across that is totally worth the cash..
I like the series so far. I like Mike Talbot and i like the other characters too.Action aplenty. Good character development. Good narrator.
My only criticism and its a minor one is some of the flash backs and dream story lines are to long for me.But its only a minor set back to an otherwise great book and series.
I listened. I remembered, and i applied. Guess what it works.Its not there as a bag of tricks to get what you want from people. Its meant as a life changing approach. And believe me it is!
I know i know its been around for donkeys years i remember being told when i was a kid how my Dad read it when he was younger and suggested i do to. 40yrs later i thought what the hell i will try it, i am so glad i did, and you will be too. Sorry Dad should have done it sooner.
I have to admit i enjoyed these stories as much as the kids. Zac is pretty cool and the Aussie narrator is perfect.Zac is a super spy kid who gets these James Bond style missions that he has to get done before dinner or chores at home. He uses gadgets and fights super villains, but its always appropriate for kids of all ages.Thank you Zac for a trouble free,easy road trip with two kids for four days. You legend!!
Go Peter you are a legend mate and cracked it in this one that's for sure. The Girls are smoking hot,the guys are mega cool and the monsters and baddies are ultra nasty.Yip i could hang out on the roof knocking back Steinlagers with this crew.There has to be a follow up story Mr Clines. You did kill off the coolest character but i will forgive you just this once.
Yea i liked it mostly. I think the characters were not always likable or admirable but the showed they had the stuff to survive. Would have liked to hear more about the destruction but that just might be ghoulish ole me. A bit soft core for me. And a little bit happy ending (ish) but i didn't regret the spent credit. My favorite character was not Hammer he was a jelly fish.
Good story once it got clearer what was going on. Its a very unique idea which worked out well. I will get the next book because u really want to see where this story will go.Cool characters who have been fleshed out very well.Value for money even for this tight Kiwi.
I love this series and would be the first to go see it in movie form except for the fact NZ never gets any movies first, except those Hobbit movies.Don't be surprised if you fall asleep at work after listening in bed all night. Its just that hard to stop listening.
The only thing i am confused with is the name Monster Hunter International since almost all of the monsters seem to come looking for them, not a great deal of Hunting involved.
Will definitely buy the next in the series, hell after this long i need to know what the end brings.
By the way if you are a book nerd buying this book will make you more cool buying the series will make you super frosty. Get in to it!
I did like the uplifting feel of the book but wonder how likely it would be to unfold this way in real life after a nuclear war.
The love of the US military even after they had been a party in the destruction of their world, i found an interesting premise.
Is that a result of the 1950's cold war propaganda influence upon the psyche at that time ?
Never the less i liked the characters especially Randy and his strong morals. I enjoyed the narrators style.
Would have liked to hear more about the towns reaction to the hanging of the Highway Man. Just seemed to be breezed over.....
Overall i never felt this was a dated story and enjoyed their ingenuity in solving various difficulties.
