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.

    "This one got me hooked"
    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.

    "Very enjoyable!"

    This is a great read/listen! Good plot, lots of action, and compelling characters that you care about. The thing that makes it even better to listen to than to read is the narrator. Oliver Wyman captures the characters intellectually, emotionally and most important, vocally. His overall sense of the story, which is apparent in the way he reads, makes the action come alive. Very definitely recommended.

    "Too long"

    This book started out as pretty interesting sci-fi. Alas, that is all. Too long and way too much gun/ammo jargon.

    "Fun story and great narration"

    Fun, fast paced and consistent plot line with a very good narrator and plenty of monster action kept me entertained all the way through. It's not an intellectually challenging book nor does it introduce any new monster lore but it does stick within it's own reality and is a lot of fun. For me, it's a solid 4 stars and worth the credit.

    "I am a Larry Correia fan"

    This book was fun and entertaining. The next two in the series get even better. Hard Magic is as good or even better than this series. As the title suggests, I am looking forward to more from Mr. Correia. Keep up the good work!

    Oh yeah, the narrator was great as well. He fit the character perfectly in my mind.

    Story
    "It's great!"
    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say that it were ranked as #6.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I became particularly fond of Earl, I am not too sure why, but there were something that came out of the personality that the author gave him that just made you like him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The favorite scene were the scene after Owen's out of body experience, when they had gone on a mission, and it turned out the mission led to the exact ship Owen had seen in his out of body, and had to talk to Earl about it.


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

    A 500 year old evil is about to bring the end of the world, all that stands in it's way, Monster Hunter International, and an accountant.


    Any additional comments?

    Oliver Wyman's performance is great, his women voices might take some time getting used to.
