    Story

    The brilliantly unorthodox Kylara Vatta - black-sheep scion of Vatta Transport Ltd., one of the galaxy's wealthiest merchant houses - is a heroine like no other, blessed with a killer instinct both for business and for battle. Now, in the aftermath of cold-blooded assassinations that have left her parents dead and the Vatta shipping empire shattered, Kylara faces her greatest challenge yet. There is a time for grief and a time for revenge. This is decidedly the latter.

    Jean says: "forming a fleet"
    "good book, not a good reader"
    Overall

    I enjoy Elizabeth Moon's books, but this reader's rendition is stilted with poor phrasing and emphasis.

    Story
    (5989)

    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.

    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the most fun monster stories I've ever read or listened to. The story is far-fetched at times, but always with an attitude and a smirk. I especially liked that Owen isn't another remarkable pretty boy, but a real guy, not so perfect, with just a few "little" issues.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    While the story would have been really, really good by another reader, Oliver Wyman's performance is so remarkable I often forget I was listening to only one guy! He's just skyrocketed to the top of my favorite readers list, and I'll be looking for more of his recordings.
