    Story

    I am still loving this series and I really don't want it to end, however some of the stories in this book are a bit long winded.

    I do enjoy hearing the ramblings that go on in the head of the main character, Michael Talbot, but a few of the "looks back" into his life felt a bit out of place and drawn out.

    Nevertheless, I can't wait to move on the Book 6. Marc Tufo writes a great story and these minor criticisms don't change that.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Story

    For the first half of this story I probably spent a lot of time raising one eyebrow. Some of the creatures and events from the very beginning were so off the wall I was pretty sure David Wong got some good mushrooms before he started writing.

    I decided to stay with it and eventually I did find myself interested in the characters and wanting to know what was going to happen next.

    By the time I reached the end of the book I was looking forward to hearing the next book in the series (This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It) and I found that I enjoyed it so much more than this one because of the narrator.

    Stephen R Thorne may be a wonderful narrator but his tone just didn't seem right for the characters of this story.

    Overall it's a must read if you want to enjoy the second book in the series and that alone makes it worth the investment.

    Story

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    I miss the MHI team already. It surely sounds as though they have more work to do so I am hoping there will be more Monster Hunter International stories to come.

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Story

    In the beginning I wasn't sure that I liked this book because it was focused mostly on just one of the characters from the other two books. I have grown fond of all of the hunters at MHI and missed them.

    Nevertheless, I am glad I didn't stop listening, not that I could have, the story grabbed my interest pretty quickly.

    Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones.

    Story

    Definitly start with book 1, "Monster Hunters International" in order to understand many of the references in this book.

    Larry Correia has an amazing imagination and comes up with some of the craziest creatures. I think that in almost any other story I would have thought that some of them were just silly, but somehow, in the context of the story, they seemed perfectly plausible.

    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

    This story is filled with interesting characters that I quickly started cheering on through the many battles with werewolves, vampires, zombies and any other supposedly imaginary creature that I've ever heard of. There is an excellent balance between conflicts and personal relationships, making connections with each character come easily.

    The action seems never ending, and Oliver Wyman makes the story come alive.

    Story

    This part of the series takes us away from the action for a while but is a great addition to the series as it takes us back in time to add some back story to the zombie story. By it self it wouldn't make much sense at all, but if you listen to it after book 3 it's well worth the additional information and some of the info will come into play later.

Michael stands side by side with his wife, their children, his friends, and the wonder Bulldog, along with the Wal-Mart greeter Tommy, who is infinitely more than he appears. Whether Tommy is leading Mike and his family and friends to salvation or death remains to be seen.

    Story

    I am loving the twists and turns that this series takes, above and beyond the typical zombie stories. The off-beat, sometimes lame humor has become a welcome part of the story as we hear the ramblings of Michael Talbot's mind.

    Michael's wife Tracy and his big friend B.T. have been added to my list of favorite characters in this series.

    After listening to the first Zombie Fallout book I was already hooked. With the second book my love for this series grows.

    The characters have become like old friends already and Sean Runnette continues to bring the story to life and make this a memorable and enjoyable listen.
