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
    "Imaginative Entertainment!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Clever takes on the traditional monsters we're so aware of, vampires, werewolves and the author adds a creative spin with many monsters and brings new monsters to our attention. I want to work for Monster Hunters International! I also appreciated the development of characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Owen Pitt, he comes across funny, sexy, and bad ass.


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

    Definitely brings the characters to life. When I started book 2, I could immediately tell by his voice character who was speaking without him even having to say so. Great job!


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

    Laughed a few times, great entertainment, when I could not wait to listen to it. That's saying something.

    Buy this series!

    "Excellent Book! Worth every second!"

    Yes. I have already recommended it to many of my friends. If you are my friend and reading this now. I recommend it again! Start listening/reading now...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot twists and the unfolding of the main character's destiny was spell bounding


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

    The excellent way he changes his voice for the different characters really brings the story to life. Kept me on the edge of my seat.


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

    The battle scene in Natchy-Bottom

    "Great start to a really fun series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter International to be better than the print version?

    I have no idea if the audio version is better than the print version, as I have only listened to it.


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

    Trying not to put in a spoiler, the ship is the most memorable moment to me.


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

    Z is my favorite character in this. He's easy to connect with as the typical average guy who gets thrust into difficult situations and does extraordinary things. But the way he is written is not typical, and this character is fun to watch the development of. Oliver Wyman does a great job of making Z average but very likable. He's also not afraid to throw in emotion where necessary without overdoing it.


    Any additional comments?

    I would say that this would make a great movie, but it is packed with so much story that I don't think it could be covered in one film without diluting it. But the writing is very vivid in the imagery it creates. Also, the reader is PERFECT! He is great as he puts voices to all of the characters, and his style fits with Z's "everyman" personality.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Larry Correia and/or Oliver Wyman?

    Yes, but hesitantly for Correia. Wyman is pretty good.


    What could Larry Correia have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Employed a good editor and eased up on the adjectives.


    What aspect of Oliver Wyman’s performance would you have changed?

    Some pronunciation is off. Otherwise pretty good performance.


    Did Monster Hunter International inspire you to do anything?

    Bang my head against the wall over the dialogue.


    Any additional comments?

    After finishing the grimnoir series I went into these books with enthusiasm only to be disappointed by the writing. Could have been so much better.

    "You can trust this writer"

    I do not read the kind of books Larry Correia writes. Yet I've listened to two and will probably listen to more because I can trust this writer to deliver kick-ass good guys (male and female); stinky slimeballs; strong-arm bad guys; the Supreme and Nearly Invincible Evil; and best of all, an action plot with characters who crack jokes and are individual and sympathetic enough to involve my interest. Correia's fight scenes amaze me--they go on and on and when you think they ought to end by now, they go on. I get bored with the longer fights but I can respect what the author is doing because he does it well. If he's corny, it's because he intends to be. Once the gun goes off at the starting gate, you're in for a fast ride. With guns and explosions, lots of 'em!

    "Good but not great"

    I really enjoyed the start and thought I would be hooked. I enjoy monster books. I am a big fan of Jim Butcher and other science fiction/monster series authors. This book certainly has lots of action and if you are into guns, you get your fill, but I just found the plot a bit jumpy. One major aspect I found missing was humor. Certainly not a bad read, but I am not sure if I will continue with the series.

    "Great Story but wrong voice."
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter International in three words, what would they be?

    A fun story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harbinger.. just a cool character.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The guy was a good reader, but sounds way to old for the 24 year old Pitt. He sounds like he's channeling a younger James Stewart(younger as in mid 50s.)
    It fit for some of the voices(meyers, and Owen's dad) but not Pitt, and not Harbinger.


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

    Same as the business card. Monster Problems? Call the Professionals.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series, disappointed in the voice acting.

    "for hard core monster lovers"

    For me this book went on a little too long, but I suppose that's because he was setting it up as the start of a new series. I'll pass on the series, but I must say that I was seriously impressed with the narrator. He has an incredible range of character voices and delivered them all to perfection. I"m going to look for more from him to add to my library.

    "Enjoyable, fast acting, and lots of killings!"

    If you want a book with lots of monster killings and imaginative plots to go along with all the gore, this is the series for you. It is fast paced, and even has a love story that parallels the monster hunting!
    Since I am from Alabama, I find it humorous that the monster base for this story is set in LA (Lower Alabama). The monster hunters go all over the place, but they always end up in Sweet Home Alabama (sorry, I couldn't resist!).
