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 Fun Fun"

    I really enjoyed this story. From the characters to the storyline, it was simply awesome. It was very hard to get out of the car each day. Its a fast pace listen and I actually love the narrator. I thought he did a great job.

    I'm an avid listener and have been enjoying audio books for over ten years. My preferences are for SF and fantasy, but anything will do if I like the narrator. I also love movies and video-games.

    Story
    "That was how long?!!"

    I noticed at some point that this story is almost 24 hours, and was shocked. Because it seemed like half that. I can't give a greater compliment except that it seemed too short, and I wanted more. I will be moving on to the second novel almost immediately. Oh, and Oliver Wyman is fantastic, excellent character 'voices'.
    AWESOME!

    Story
    "Great Story, Great Characters."

    I read "Hard Magic" by Larry Correia which lead me to get this book. That one was good, and this one is better. The premise of the story is a different take on the monsters-among-us theme, and it is really fun. The characters are well developed and the backstory is told in small pieces so it isn't overwhelming. Overall a great book, and one that I have listened to more than once.

    Story
    "Pure Entertainment"

    This is one of those B-Novel series that are Good, Simple, sometimes dopey, but fun and addictive. I was as surprised by this as when I first read a Charlene Harris Vampire novel or the Dresden Files or any number of long running series books.

    The character development is good, with enough happening to keep my interest over a long period of time. It was fun and creative, and action packed enough to keep me wanting to read the next book

    "Awesome standout book and narrator! What a pearl!"
    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to quite a few audiobooks at this point. Okay okay. I'm an audiobook-addict! This narrator is outstanding. His command of voices and delivery of the dry, sarcastic wit the author has written into the main character is perfect. I've not heard better. The title put me off a bit but I am really happy I tried this one. Even if this isn't your favorite genre, you won't be disappointed!

    Story
    "Loved it!"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter International in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, bang, enthralling


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Does a great job distinguishing the characters/voices.


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

    Whoa!


    Any additional comments?

    It starts with a bang, and then it sweeps you away. It is written with a strong sense of macho male bravado so it is corny at points. However it surprises with humor when you least expect it. The story captivated me and I blew through all 23 hours in less than a week!

    Story
    "M.I.B. for Monsters"

    This book was a fun diversion that begins with a bang and just never slows the action until the end. It's not deep literature and the characters aren't from a Henry James novel. So what? If you're like me and you listen to audio books to fend off the boredom of yard work and other dull things, then entertainment is a good thing. "Monters, Inc." is entertaining. Try not to think so much.

    "Monsters, Inc." treats vampires, werewolves and their ilk in the traditional way. The vampires don't sparkle or distain blood for the love of their teenage sweetheart. These monsters rip out their victim's throats and toss their bodies aside like empty peanut shells - like they did in the comic books you grew up with. The Team from Monsters, Inc. are on call to eradicate such pests from your home, at a price. I like this idea.

    Having said that, I've been reluctant to pick up any of the sequels. I enjoyed this book but I think one is enough.

    Story
    "Hooked Me on a Whole New Genre"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I loved the adventure and the mystery. The action was fabulous.


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

    I'm just getting started with these kinds of books. I hope good ones like this don't prove to be rare.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many, but the opening chapter was the real hook.


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

    I was so torn between wanting to see how it would end, and hating to see it end, that I started my search for its sequel before I was half way through it. It was a relief to see that the story was not over with the completion of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book so much I bought a hard copy and sent it to my son who was serving as a Navy Corpsman in Afghanistan. Some of his friends found it pretty awesome too. In fact, he complained about having to search among his buddies for his book each time he got a chance to read. He was very keen to get the rest of the series too.
