Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Quick, who directed The Evil Dead? What action hero starred in The Blob? Which movie studio became synonymous with horror for producing Frankenstein and The Wolf Man? If you can answer these questions correctly, you'll likely be thrilled with Monster Hunter International. B-movie aficionados know there's a fine line between gleefully gory camp and flat-out dross. Not to worry, Monster Hunter International knows the line. Oliver Wyman brings just the right amount of bombastic, smirking swagger to this story of big guns, big action, and a heck of a lot of monsters. —Michael

Publisher's Summary

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. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

It's actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries-old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way.

With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves. Business is good.... Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

    Story
    "Don't let the corny title put you off!"

    Larry is amazing. His character development, his interweaved plot and subplots, his attention to detail and vivid description which brings the story to life. He has the true makings of a sci-fi master.

    You quickly start to develop a liking for the characters and understand their motives. As the story grows so do they drawing you deeper and deeper.

    Give it a try you'll like it!

    Story
    "Outstanding, epic, sarcastic, scary, moving, fun"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narrator brings all the characters to life. He is an amazing vocal talent, switching voices, dialects and genders seemlessly. Also, the story is original and packed with action, mysteries, hilarious family dynamics (check out the parents!). You will love Owen in very short order. More than your average accountant.


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

    Hard to say, it has so many twists and turns. It has some suprisingly moving moments, that I was not expecting.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    All of it. It is flawless and fun to listen to!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's a family business.....


    Any additional comments?

    I have ordered the entire series, based on how much I enjoyed the first. The gradual unfolding of plot and character make this special. The author truly reels you in and the surprises never end. Enjoy!

    I have to save my sensitive eyes for thesis-writing, so audiobooks are how I keep up with my favourite authors and have fun.

    "Fun for All"

    I admit, at first I had my doubts and bought this book since it was on sale. But after one listen I was hooked. This is a well-written, funny, balls-to-the-wall adventure with a supernatural twist. Seriously - get the whole series - they're well worth the credits!

    Story
    "Comic book turned into a novel (of sorts)"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The entire story is the narrator's POV, I would have liked to see more from the other characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia again?

    It's a waiting in the airport book - good for killing time, but not much else.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's a great narrator.


    Could you see Monster Hunter International being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I'm not current enough with the pantheon of movie stars - but it would probably make a boffo movie.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    that would depend on the friend. but yeah, i guess i would


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The silly little love affair between the hero and the president's daughter.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    An all-around good narrator. Accents were well done. Put emphasis (read: volume) in the right places. And without screaming.


    Do you think Monster Hunter International needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nah, I think all the bases were covered.


    Any additional comments?

    It might have been just a smidge overlong. While i enjoyed it, it did seem to lose it's flavour in the last few hours.

    Story
    "A compelling world."
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter International again? Why?

    Absolutely love this series. The characters are well written, whole beings. The series starts well and follows through to the end.


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

    You really get a feel for family in MHI. The characters have connections and you begin to care for them and root for them.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver does a great job delineating characters. One of my biggest pet peeves with audiobooks are readers who can't distinguish individual characters. Oliver Wyman does a great job.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    And the narrator rocks! Don't know if I will read the others or not. I would recommend this book


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

    The scene when time shifts back, saving Owen's life.


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

    Never even heard of Oliver Wyman. I picked this book up during the last $4.95 sale.
