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.

    "Nearly as good as the Grim Noir Chronicles"

    It took a while, but the characters grew on me and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "Dark Humor "

    I had read this book about 2 years ago. I thought then how funny it was. especially in the depicting of fairies, ogers, wargs, elves, and other magical and mythical creatures.
    Federal Government Bureaucratic overreach and the like.
    a good story and very good narration of same.

    The narrator did a fantastic job with the acting and voices. The story was exciting and well written. If you like monster movies like the stuff Bruce Campbell does, you'll like this book.

    "Totally hooked"

    I have never been a fan of guns or gore, but this story was irresistible and I will probably buy every single one in the series. Also I think the narrator is amazing and I have already bought another book read by him. Superlatives fail me! This book was pure fun all the way to the epilogue. Bravo!

    "They Shoot Monsters, Don't They?"

    This was a great surprise! It's a really great action / adventure fantasy novel which doesn't pretend to be anything other than it is. Just sit back and listen to the great narration by Oliver Wyman as the adventure washes over you. I know a lot of people out there have issues with Larry Correia's gun lovin' attitudes and obvious political opinions but if you can get over that then you'll really enjoy this book (and the rest in the series). It's fun, it goes bang, it has monsters and then the monsters go bang!

    "Hmm, interesting!"

    A good story, densely plotted, and a great reading by Oliver Wyman makes for an enthralling listen. So why only three stars? Well, partly because I think the book could have done with some stricter editing. It's a long, long journey with a number of diversions which, though entertaining, would have improved the pace of the book by their absence.
    But the main reason for my docking two stars from my review is the barely hidden subtext. Anyone with any understanding of the last decade will spot the right-wing, redneck militia-leaning protagonists. For 'monsters' read 'terrorists' and for 'Monster Hunter International' read 'Anti Government vigilante militias' who operate on the basis that 'my gun is bigger than yours'. It was as if the author was channeling the spirits of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld as he wrote.
    I realise that for many this aspect is probably an attractive and positive part of the story, but it left me feeling slightly uncomfortable while enjoying the mayhem. It is possible to write exciting monster hunting and supernatural mayhem books. I need only mention Jim Butcher and early Laurell K Hamilton as prime examples of politically neutral masters of the genre.

    Having said all that, I'll still go for the second volume!

    "Fantastic, the hunt is on!"

    This is a face paced story, although you need to get over the fact that you will know your guns by the end. The Hero Owen Z Pitt is both funny, humble, arrogant and fantastically violent. The rest of the gang is just brilliant and the banter will keep you giggling, The story has enough complexity to keep your interest and the characters are sufficiently rounded for you to care what happens to them. Urban fantasy at its best!

    "Book 1 sets the bar high. "

    A great first book in MHI series. Larry Correia has a great imagination and brings a fresh take on the classic monster type book. As I've bought all the books in this series and listened a few times I can highly recommend them. Narration by Oliver Wyman is great and all characters are easily recognisable he really brings them all to life.

    A fairly simple book, but entertaining nontheless. Ideal for those listening to a book while doing something slightly distracting.

    "I think this simply wasn't for me"

    Having listened to this I think I simply don't like the protagonist. I'm sure the whole macho shoot first think eventually thing will appeal to some but didn't for me. I found myself constantly hoping that something would manage to kill pitt for good which sadly didn't happen.

    The unhealthy obsession with guns, barely hidden political views and telegraphing of events to come throughout the book left me disappointed. This was topped off by one of the most inexplicable romance angles I have ever listened to and terrible attempts to build emotion with characters before something dreadful happened to them.

    However it's all fine because guns are cool, especially if you are shooting guns and even more so if you are shooting them at something that doesn't require a moral justification on if its right or wrong. I will be sticking with Harry Dresden where good story, character development and well written action blend together into an interesting and gripping read. It's a shame this book lacks any of those.

    Really enjoyable story, lots of action and of course loads of guns! Very good narration and I eventually even became used to the American accent. Well worthwhile

    "OK story but lacked finesse"

    This story was OK but seemed a little obvious at times. there weren't any clever plot twists or devices that make the listener sit up and take note.

    performance was good but a lot of characters sounded the same.

    all in all 6 out of 10 - worth it if you like the monster genre but not the best introduction

    "Made me want to eat my ears"

    The creepiest thing about this book was the protagonist.

    This will probably spoil the book for anyone reading this and about to listen to it, but I imagined the narrator delivering all of his lines like he's looking at an imaginary camera, head tilted slightly forward with one eyebrow raised and saying the word 'Duh-uh-uh!' Over and over again for twenty hours of my life that I'll never get to spend with my family.

    If you're from Texas, you'll love it.
