    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
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter International?

    When Owen wakes up in the hospital and is recruited by MHI was great. His disbelief and inexplicable excitement were hilarious.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Wyman really captured the tension and excitement in the battle scenes. He also had clear separate voices for each character.


    What character would you cut from Monster Hunter International?

    The Guns. Those should not be characters, but props.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
