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
    "Juvenile with a boring narrator"

    There are so many books in this series and so many good reviews that I thought getting this book was a no-brainer, but I couldn't get through more than an hour of this. I just couldn't get into it at all!

    Story
    "Wouldn't that be ......"Accursed One?""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great stuff. The stuff of "b" movies......especially if you like guns..I don't. Worth a second listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narration, and the author's sly sense of humor...


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    The dead Russian guy..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I didn't quite like that he killed Conquistador, after his cursed was lifted, oh well..


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah an engaging listen afteran improbable opening , though its a story that must have been told , hundred times though,it was very entertaining and flawessly read.

    Though also it was a bit unimaginative for the author to have to use firearms so much throughout the story, he mus tbe a real gun nut. You wonder what kind of munitions and firearms would take out a vampire?

    Story
    "I was abducted and taken on a great ride!"
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    I wasn't sure if this was a book I would enjoy. The premise seemed interesting, but...but...I wasn't sure. I'm happy to report that the story immediately grabbed my attention and held tight throughout most of the book. Like several other series I've read, present-day earth is inhabited by monsters. However, the public isn't aware of the dangerous creatures lurking in the dark. The government wants to keep this information a secret. Yes, the same old story, but told in a fresh and interesting way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that monster hunters is a family-owned/run business. As with all families, there are some members that we would call the "black sheep" of the family. As the story unfolds, there is much action, humor and even a little romance. The characters are very likeable, even though some of them are a bit more military-minded than I usually enjoy. However, the paranormal storyline does explain the need for the gungho approach to things.


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

    When I first started listening I wasn't sure if I liked his reading of the story. However, I quickly forgot that I was "listening" to a book. I soon found his reading so well done that I became absorbed in the story and forgot there was a "reader" involved. That is the best compliment I can hand a performer. Well done, Mr. Wyman.


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

    How about "You should be afraid of the dark"? Or possibly "It's raining frogs!"


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to reading book two of this series.

    Story
    "More guns than you can shake a ... well, gun at!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My friends enjoy reading action with fantasy and a lot of gratuitous violence.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the main character, Owen, but I think my favorite was Earl. No-nonsense and stops an argument with a well placed look rather than fist.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job with the voices and the dialog flowed very fluidly.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, an AWESOME thing to listen to while stuck in traffic! The gratuitous (and detailed to the level of the serial numbers of the guns) violence really helped diffuse the traffic tension!

    Story
    "Another Stupid Vampire/monster story"
    What would have made Monster Hunter International better?

    They need to rewrite the whole thing over. Oh and maybe give me a refund.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Certainly not another story from Larry Correia.


    How could the performance have been better?

    ORIGINALITY!!! The narrator sounded drunk or maybe bored the whole time. I usually listen to these books at work to keep me awake and help the time go faster. I fell asleep twice listening to this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Well, let's see: I was desappointed, irritated, bored and angry I wasted a whole $17 on such a bad book.


    Any additional comments?

    Save yourself a headache and take your credit/money somewhere else.

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

    Would recommend this one for someone who likes a little blood with their humor. Stretches belief occasionally but strength of the characters pulls it off


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver was great, perfect reader for this book. Good variety in characters and great rhythm.

    "Just Okay"

    I got this book looking for action packed adventure. The idea behind the book was very good and the characters very likable, but the book moved way too slow for me. I can't decide if that's the author's fault or the narrator. I still recommend this book and will be listening to the second in the series.

    "nice entertainment"

    A good story to pass the time while driving or exercising, altho occasionally I got lost in detail. Really nice narration, I'll get the sequel just because it was so well done and I have a lot of windshield time ahead of me.

    Story
    "How do I get a job with MHI I wonder?"

    I have read many "Monster/Zombie" books and passed over this one many times for other book in this genre.
    The start of this book was slow for me and I found the narration to be somewhat annoying and a little cheesy, but by the time I was through the first third of this book I was hooked. The writer shows great depth of knowledge in all that he writes about here, ie; weapons, tactics, monsters, magic and government. The narrator does a fantastic job bringing life to all the many characters and has seemingly no limits to how he can give each one their own voice.
    Larry Corria is a fantastic writer and I am very much looking forward to downloading the rest of the books related to this one.
    Oliver Wyman is by far the most talented narrator I have heard.
    With plenty of action, suspence and characters to care about, I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "FANTASTIC!! 23 HRS OF EXCITEMENT"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter International again? Why?

    Yes. But not right away because I want to listen to the next 3 books by this authur.


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

    I just loved the naration and the story. Very well done.


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

    No I have not, but I assure you, if he narrated a book, i may pick it up just for his narration.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many. A surprise around every corner.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not wanted to listen to a story so much since the books by David Rosenfelt. I could not wait untill the next line or voice to come in. How much did I like it? I have never written a review until this one. I recommend this highly.
