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
    "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.

    Story
    "More Fun than a Barrel of Zombies!"

    This book has moments of suspense, terror, romance and - - - laugh out loud hilarity! There are very few books that have EVER made me laugh out loud, and I have listened to hundreds and hundreds of audio books, but this one really did make me laugh out loud.

    Correia has enormous talent and enormous heart. His approach is fresh and original. For example, his hero is no James Bond type with a handsome face. Nope, his hero is a big guy, and ugly. But you will come to really like this big guy, and root for him to succeed both in his quest to defeat the evil minions of the evil "old ones" and in his quest to win the heart of his dream girl.

    The narrator is fantastic! Great voices, great pacing, always perfectly intelligible and always sensitive to the nuances of Correia's style.

    "This was fantastic!"

    You have got to read it. AND I am pretty sure the end set us up for a sequel.
    Creativity I enjoyed, would get to a destination in my car and sit to listen just a little while longer.
    The hero Pitt, he is wonderful and gets the , well, don't want to spoil it.
    A few clever twists in the story you will enjoy.

    Story
    "Just plain fun."

    Not fancy or thought provoking, but very entertaining. The story is a simple monster butt kicking from a narrator who sounds like the character should. There are of course monsters, a secret government agency, end of the world scenario's,girls with guns, the father figure/mentor, a tech hippy, etc, all total cliche, but it is great. The entire series is basically the same thing, and I still wanted more after the three books.

    If you could sum up Monster Hunter International in three words, what would they be?

    Surprisingly Fun Violence


    What did you like best about this story?

    What's not to like? The title and cover make it out to be junk, but it's actually well thought-out, very entertaining and interesting.


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

    He did a great job on all of the characters, although Julie sounded a bit weak. It's hard for guys to do women's voices well. Loved his Owen Z. Pitt.

    Yes, definitely

    I liked the characters and found myself caring what happens to them. Also, the story is not predictable, and the story is consistant within the rules of the book's world.

    Mostly I just like how he reads the chapter number -


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

    I laughed multiple times. Very clever use of some modern and internet culture, both in this book and the sequel.

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

    Everything! The attention to detail when it comes to weapons, monsters, backstorys. The Twists, the writing style. The Epic fights! It was a 100 percent win in my book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Owen Z Pitt. He's the embodyment of hardcorps Badassery! Knows his guns, and keeps his wits about him even in the most dangerous of situations, and he killed a werewolf with his bare hands. You don't top that.


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

    Life's a bitch and then you die. . . If your lucky.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recomend every single one of Larry Correias books. I have never been disappointed except at the end of his books knowing that I have to wait for the next one to come out. BRILLIANT AUTHOR!! 10 STARS ALL ROUND!!
