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.

    "Surprising"

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The narrator did a great job and the storyline was great also. I'm looking forward to the sequel.

    Story
    "While you are waiting for the next Dresden book..."
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    If Dresden is a Netflix or HBO original series then MHI is a summer blockbuster. Awesome action, likable characters, and good clean fun.


    What other book might you compare Monster Hunter International to and why?

    The Dresden files. If Dresden is a Netflix or HBO original series then MHI is a summer blockbuster. Same sense of fun, adventure, and darkness. MHI's plots don't seem as intricate as Dresden's.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    If the opening chapter/fight of this book doesn't hook you then I don't even know what to say.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Ignore the naysayers who claim the book pushes a political agenda. MHI loves guns. That is it, that is the only "politics" in the book. Unless you find gun porn offensive you should be fine.

    "Great story, well read."

    I've been a fan of these books for years but just decided to try the Audible format as I "reread" them. Really great narration and the story just moves along.

    Story
    "Better than expected, combines many genres"

    I didn't expect much after listening to the preview, but hoped for the best. I was happily surprised at how great it was. The way he combined military, mythology, romance, and horror was AMAZING! I especially loved the references and integration of H. P. Lovecraft and JRR Tolkien, but modified so they were not rip-offs. The modifications made them unique to his story.

    Story
    "Fantastic. New genre for me: Monsters, Magic, and Guns."

    What a great book. I found this book because I liked "Hard Magic (The Grimnoir Chronicles)" so much. I was unsure about the 'monsters' part of the book since I don't like horror movies/books. But "Monster Hunter International" is so much more.

    Great plot, no dumb 'the power is off and the phone lines are cut so I should go into the basement' scenes, fantastic detail and wonderful humor and wit. Lots of great quotable lines like in the 'Princess Bride'.

    It's long, but worth it. I listened to it on 1.25 speed.

    If you like a fun book with great action, listen to this book. Oliver Wyman does a fantastic job reading it with inflection and memorable character voices and interpretations.

    If you are looking to use an Audible credit, spend it on this book. =^)
