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.

    "Great story and an awesome performance!"
    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the most fun monster stories I've ever read or listened to. The story is far-fetched at times, but always with an attitude and a smirk. I especially liked that Owen isn't another remarkable pretty boy, but a real guy, not so perfect, with just a few "little" issues.


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

    While the story would have been really, really good by another reader, Oliver Wyman's performance is so remarkable I often forget I was listening to only one guy! He's just skyrocketed to the top of my favorite readers list, and I'll be looking for more of his recordings.

    "Another Stupid Vampire/monster story"
    What would have made Monster Hunter International better?

    They need to rewrite the whole thing over. Oh and maybe give me a refund.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Certainly not another story from Larry Correia.


    How could the performance have been better?

    ORIGINALITY!!! The narrator sounded drunk or maybe bored the whole time. I usually listen to these books at work to keep me awake and help the time go faster. I fell asleep twice listening to this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Well, let's see: I was desappointed, irritated, bored and angry I wasted a whole $17 on such a bad book.


    Any additional comments?

    Save yourself a headache and take your credit/money somewhere else.

    "Just Plain Awesome"

    I can't decide which I like better, the action packed story line or Oliver Wyman's narration! I've listened to this audio book over and over again. It is the book I use to lure skeptical friends into listening to audio books. The narration is fantastic, the story is never boring, and even though I've listened to it several times, I find myself lingering in the car, or staying up a bit later than intended just to listen a bit longer. It's just plain awesome, as are its sequels, Monster Hunter Vendetta and Monster Hunter Alpha.

    The basic plot is an easy one: monsters are real, people hunt them in secret to collect bounties on them. Larry Correia writes action scenes that feel like movies and Wyman's narration compliments them perfectly. The edge of your seat action is interspersed with snarky humor and moments of deep emotion. And plenty of serious butt-kicking.

    Do your self a favor and just listen. You won't regret it. Just be prepared to be listening long into the night!

    "Unexpected FUN"

    Oliver Wyman opened the world of Monster Hunters from the opening paragraph to the end. I was not sure what to expect with this book, but before I finished this one, I went back to Audible and bought the rest of the Monster Hunter books. If you want something fun to pass the time you won't be sorry with this series.

    Story
    "Don't judge by its cover"
    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    My favorite character was Harbinger. Some books don't do well with the element of surprise while keeping the reader engaged. I can visualize Harbinger smoking his cigarette. I could sense his edginess and impatience. He was also the leader for a reason. When he got mad, you certainly knew it. He reminded me of the temperament of my father at home when it came to taking to taking care of business. Quiet storm but when it rained, it poured.


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

    Monster Hunter INC

    Story
    "Pleasantly surprised!"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter International again? Why?

    Having listened to the first two books in this series I'm holding off on the thrid because I don't want the storyline to end. At some point after I finally cave in and listen to that last book, Monster Hunter Alpha, I'm going to go back to the beginning and listen to the entire story again from start to finish.


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

    Oliver Wyman gives each character in the book a unique, well defined personality; the characters speak in a manner which suites both the dialogue and their reaction to each scenario. The writing is obviously the key but I don't know that any other narrator could have given these characters life better than Wyman has done.


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

    Listening to this book as I drove back and forth from work I caught myself giggling at some portions of the dialogue and at the unusual circumstances the main characters found themselves in. I also found this humour to be tempered by moments of "reality"' in the book which seemed to sweep your feet out from under you because you weren't expecting what came next.


    Any additional comments?

    When I saw this title on Audible's web page I originally disregarded it as just one more supernatural novel but then I started reading the reviews and decided to take a chance; I'm very glad I did. : )

    "fun and action book"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter International in three words, what would they be?

    The Title pretty much says it. If you like all different types of guns, plenty of action and a lot of fun, this book is it. There are parts that are very far fetched and predictable, however I think it suited the book. It's not one to take seriously. PS. Vampires don't sparkle in this book

    I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.

    "Very entertaining."

    I was very surprised that I liked this series.
    I started listening to Monster Hunter series after a recommendation from a friend. I was pleasantly surprise how entertaining this series is. Definitely worth the time and credits to listen to the full series, and I am looking forward to the next book.

    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but this story was great! The 1st chapter was action packed and it never stopped. Awesome characters ands story line... let's hope there isn't a big conspiracy covering up the truth about monsters really existing!
