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.

    "Fun read"

    This book was your typical monster hunter tale. There were a few twists that i truly enjoyed, and it was fun to listen to, but it wasn't spectacular. I'll listen to more in this series as I have credits, and I'll bet they get better. The only issue I had was that this is obviously written to start a series. Most books that start a series could easily be left independent, but there are too many loose ends for that here.

    Story
    "A cheesy, yet excellent book to lose oneself in"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the type of book you pick up or listen to when you want to sit back, laugh a little and enjoy the ride. You can't take it seriously but the author does an outstanding job of keeping you engaged with twists, turns, and action that rarely slow down.


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

    Little can compare to this book but the closest I can come when it comes to witty comments and style would be the Dresden Files


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene catches you from the start. You don't know what to expect and then, BANG, the story is there in your face and you are off and running.


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

    When you get to the end and all of Z's predecessors are there, well, read the book and you will understand what he just did.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, listen to it. This is a story you can take in time and again and will be a mainstay when I need that escape from reality.

    "Surprisingly Entertaining !"
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter International?

    Unique story line, and numerous unique characters. Fast paced with just enough humor to keep the story from bogging down into overly serious monster fare.


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

    When the main character realizes who he really is, or what he is.


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

    Earl Harbinger


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

    Monsters.. They ARE real !!


    Any additional comments?

    When I downloaded this book I didn't really think I'd like it., I usually listen to detective stories or action adventure ( Without Monsters ! ).. But I was wrong ! It is one of the most enjoyable book I've listened to !

    Story
    "A great horror series"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter International again? Why?

    Yes, the story is great, and the way it is read makes it even more enjoyable. Great character development, action and lore. The only problem I had with this book is how much detail it goes into for each gun type, as most of the characters love guns. If you're a gun fanatic this will please you, but for those of us who aren't it was tedious.


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

    I don't think I have read this type of horror before. It has humor, action, lore and good times. I imagine the closest thing is the Harry Dresden series.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver does a great job changing voices and adding accents to match both the age and location of the person.

    "Really great for a southern based book"
    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I like a little more romance in my fantansy books but when they started calling out alll the small towns all around Alabama. It was great. It was also has some pretty funny belly laugh lines in it.

    "Great Performance and a Great Story"
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    Oliver Wyman's performance is amazing and Larry Correia's story keeps you captivated throughout the story.


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

    When Owen reaches for the power of the artifact at Nachy Bottoms when everybody dies. Also, Owens self control while using the artifact.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Wow! I listened to MHI twice. During the second listen I suddenly realized that ONE person was doing the voices. Oliver's characters had depth and his voice had such control I never thought all those characters were comming from one person. I've listened to other Audible books but no one performs like Oliver Wyman.


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

    Not Sure.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep Oliver Wyman working!

    "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!
