Die hard Neal Stephenson fans that only want to see him write "Neal Stephenson" books should stay far away from this one. This book is a much more straight forward techno-thirller than the typical Stephenson work and I say that isn't a bad thing. Stephenson's prose and his always well researched scientific and technical details are present mixed with techno action reminiscent of a James Rollins novel. The book moves along at a breakneck pace and never drags, a great feat for a 1000+ page (38+ hours) book.
This book is fun and entertaining and if you are looking for a great action thriller to listen to, you won't go wrong with this one. If you are looking for a "Neal Stephenson" novel you might want to skip it.
This books steps away from the main MHI story line with Owen Pitt at its center for a story that focuses on Earl Harbinger, the leader of MHI. This book is by far my favorite of the MHI series so far. I couldn't stop listening and finished the entire thing in a single day.
As with all MHI books it is filled with lots of action & humor and plenty of guns, guts, and monsters. If you are an MHI fan you can't go wrong with this one.
The whole Monster Hunter series is excellent and the books are getting better with each new one. All the Monster Hunter books have plenty of action, humor and heart. If you want to read books with vampires, werewolves, and monsters that isn't written for 14 year old girls these books are for you. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
This book has a fun, interesting story that grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't let go. Even if you aren't a child of the 80's the story is interesting enough in its own right to keep you interested.
