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.

Monsters Are Real
I'd have to say Earl, because well you'll have to find out for yourself.;
Every character was great they all had their own voice with is great.
I listened to this book 3 times in one month and probably listen to it again and again
Worth the credit or however much it cost. A must have for your library...
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!
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.
Hard to say, it has so many twists and turns. It has some suprisingly moving moments, that I was not expecting.
All of it. It is flawless and fun to listen to!
It's a family business.....
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.
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!
I do not own the print version
Full of action and interesting monsters
Pitt of course
It made me laugh many times
This is a great book for anyone who loves action, monsters, and guns. there were no slow or boring parts the entire book was great. I just bought the second book in the series Vendetta.
The entire story is the narrator's POV, I would have liked to see more from the other characters.
It's a waiting in the airport book - good for killing time, but not much else.
He's a great narrator.
I'm not current enough with the pantheon of movie stars - but it would probably make a boffo movie.
that would depend on the friend. but yeah, i guess i would
The silly little love affair between the hero and the president's daughter.
An all-around good narrator. Accents were well done. Put emphasis (read: volume) in the right places. And without screaming.
Nah, I think all the bases were covered.
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.
this is pretty much my new favorite book of all time! need i say more?
Absolutely love this series. The characters are well written, whole beings. The series starts well and follows through to the end.
You really get a feel for family in MHI. The characters have connections and you begin to care for them and root for them.
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.
And the narrator rocks! Don't know if I will read the others or not. I would recommend this book
The scene when time shifts back, saving Owen's life.
Never even heard of Oliver Wyman. I picked this book up during the last $4.95 sale.
