The author seems to obsess on guns. Yeah, Owen got a big new gun. He drooled over it and was very excited for the chance to blow away monsters with it. I don't really care how many pounds of force it takes to pull the trigger or any specifics about the ammo. Just give your character a gun and tell the story about the people and the monsters. If the author had simply said that the gun had a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time, that would have worked. I could have related that the gun was special to our hero and that it was important to him. I really liked the characters and the story, but the author goes on and on about the guns with more care than he does for most of the characters. Yes, this could be a 4 or 5-star story, IF you're a gun nut. It's very funny and entertaining otherwise.
When Owen wakes up in the hospital and is recruited by MHI was great. His disbelief and inexplicable excitement were hilarious.
Mr. Wyman really captured the tension and excitement in the battle scenes. He also had clear separate voices for each character.
The Guns. Those should not be characters, but props.
This story had a great concept and was told very well for the most part, but it was obviously written by and for gun enthusiasts. I'll not be reading any more Larry Correia books.
