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.

    I liked it but i just don't see that it can be continued. Not picking up the next once in the series I think. But i DO recommend reading this one. Once.

    "A Pleasant Surprise"
    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    This was my first read with Oliver Wyman, who now joins my favorite narrators after just one listen. His performance was enjoyable and only added to the characters and story. I look forward to listening to him again.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to admit I found the MHI title a little cheesy, and probably still do. Had it not been for the other high-ratings from other listeners I might have passed this by, and that would have been a mistake. It was an enjoyable listen and I look forward to going forward in the series.

    "Fractured Fairy Tales on Steroids"

    If you remember the old "Fractured Fairy Tales" stories on "Rocky and Bullwinkle", or got a chuckle watching "Evil Dead", or waited through the credits at the end of "An American Werewolf in London", you will love this book. It's fun and entertaining (you'll laugh at the oddest moments), especially with each character given a unique persona by narrator Oliver Wyman. If you're trying to escape the mayhem of this world, the wryly insane world of Monster Hunter International is just the place to go. Enjoy; I did.

    "Decent popcorn adventures"

    standard urban fantasy afair with s bit of fan service to geeks and gun nuts, a somewhat Marty and Mary Sue couple and a cast of overly competent characters. despite that managed to be Charming and not to cliche.

    "Great Book!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a recommended read by Audible and I am so glad I picked it up. I cannot put it down and I am looking forward to picking up the books that follow it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Owen is my favorite and I have really enjoyed hearing him tell his story.


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

    This is the first time I have listed to Wyman but I feel the way he performs this story makes me feel like Owen is really telling you his story and when he does Harbinger I can picture what I think he looks like and I will definitely check out more of his work.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I so involved in the story that I did not want to put it down. I listened to it every day at lunch and at night when I came in from work. When I couldn't listen to it I bought the ebook from Amazon so I could at least continue to read it. I can't wait to pick up the second book.

    "Wow I was amazed!"
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter International?

    The characters were rich and vivid by the middle of the book they felt like close friends and family.


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

    In the swamp when the rift opened up and dumped all kinds of creatures on MHI.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    He gave life to each of the characters you had no problem knowing who was speaking. Mr. Wyman is a great performer. Love his work.


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

    Yes but if I list it here it would be a spoiler. So I will not.


    Any additional comments?

    MHI is a fantastic series one that I highly recommend to any one who loves Horror / Sci-fi adventure or mysteries.

    "Delightful!"

    A great alternative between Dresden File books. Heavy military fight sequences, women characters a tad too soft, but given time, I think this author can get it right.1

    If you're looking for an action/adventure story that incorporates amazing weaponry, werewolves and vampires and other evil creatures with a dash of humor and young love, look no further than this book. Excellent read/listen. . .
