Editorial 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.

Suprizingly entertaining

Why should I buy this book? A valid question I had to ask myself when I was reading the description. Let's face it, if you like werewolfs, zombies, vampires etc. then the title alone was sufficient to suck you in. However, if you, like me, were looking for something in the science fiction genre and was surprised to find this so highly rated and furthermore having great reviews by most that read it then I will answer the other question: How can it be?
How can it be that a book that talks about vampires, guns and gore is so highly regarded? How can it be that a book that has a story out of every other book in this genre is so entertaining? How can people like such literature?
Let me tell you something. There is a lot worse out there and this book is actually an oasis among them. The reasons are clear to me and they boil down to this: A cult classic B-rated movie. For those that have seen The Blob or any of the Evil Dead movies this is the feeling you get out of this. Something so bad it is actually good. Let's look at the list.
Monsters out of handbook. Check. Endless beating of main character throughout the book (if you don't like him I would say this is a big plus). Check. Reminding us how awesome he is. Check. Anti-goverment remarks at every chapter (can't wait for a movie to play the drinking game). Check. Classic boy meets girl theme. Check. I can go on and on.
And yet we also see clear writing without straining the language and without taking the reader for a fool. Many different locations and a story that is not boring one bit from start to finish. Entertaining. Good jokes, some I have heard before but the context makes them better. Added bonus - great voice acting by Oliver Wyman.
This is not a masterpiece for sure but I sometimes want something entertaining that I can relax with. This series provides me that pleasure and therefore adds something to the world.

Did not meet my expectations, thankfully!

I originally purchased this book when I saw it "on the cheap" on one of Audbiles specials. I had the lowest of expectations just judging from the cover art and the name of the book but as I drive allot and the price was right I figured I would give it a try.
MUCH to my delight this was a fun, action packed and funny as hell book. I ended up well hooked on the series and have now read them all. Larry has a good imagination and a heck of a sick sense of humor, which I can relate to.
Bottom line............Loved it.

Had some good moments

Right from the start I was put off. This accountant gets attacked by his boss, who is a werewolf. The accountant pulls out a gun he keeps strapped to his ankle. Later they explain why an accountant would have an ankle gun, but it was too little too late.

Every single military cliche you have ever heard is in this long long book. There were moments when I laughed and I liked the take on Elves and on Orcs. It was no where near as good as Jonathan Maberry or Dean Koontz. You want monster's try Koontz's Frankenstein series. You want tough guy and Zombies try Maberry's Patient Zero.

Oliver Wyman did ok, but I have never a big fan of his and I wondered if the story would have sounded better from Ray Porter or Wil Wheaton.

Killin’s my business and business is fine

This audiobook has monsters of impossible, mind-bending proportions. The main villain, the “Cursed One,” is not just a mwahaha villain – we also get inside his head through his memories in Owen’s ghost-guided dream/nightmares that recall C.O.’s journey from a “mean son-of-a-bitch” conquistador to one very megalomaniacal, unearthly, tentacled, flesh-wriggling being who is intent of stopping time itself. I think I’m in love with Owen Z. Pitt, who’s inherently epic, but it’s hard to let the listener know how epic Owen is through first-person narration without it sounding over-the-top or silly. Like when a master vampire tells Owen he has the strongest will of any mortal she’s ever met, or when one guys says to the other that he shouldn’t mess with Owen because he has “one hundred pounds of muscle” on him. Or worse yet, when Julie reads his file and we find out Owen’s a marksman/genius. This book is cliché in the best way possible. It's like 1 part monsterish gore, 1 part comedy, and 1 part all sorts of artillery. It's like Hot Fuzz.

Oliver Wyman is great. This is the first time I heard him read, and his style is perfect for Monster Hunter International. He has a rather macho tone with just a bit of immaturity, and again, the term “epic” comes to mind to describe his style. His reading of female voices didn’t make me burst out laughing, which is what usually happens when I listen to male narrators read girls’ voices. The only thing that jarred me was how seriously Oliver Wyman took those vocal direction. I usually comment on whether narrators do a good or bad job at distinguishing internal monologue with external speak when audiobooks are in first-person, like this one. The listener has no problem with distinguishing the two in Monster Hunter International, because Oliver Wyman reads the directions in a rather calm soft voice, while reading the actual words with the proper emphasis, instead of splitting the two.

Why didn't I like this?

Did anyone else absolutely love the Grimnoir Chronicles and absolutely hate Monster Hunter International? I did, and I'm still trying to figure out what the difference is. Part of it is probably the order in which I listened to them. After the brilliance of Grimnoir, I had high hopes for MHI and was severely let down. If I had listened in reverse order, maybe I would have found MHI to be just mediocre, and not such a thorough disappointment. I rated it 2 stars because I'm trying to overcome that bias, but how I felt after listening to it (and even during the later parts of the book) was a 1-star reaction.

In the Grimnoir books, Correia created a new set of supernatural rules, and it worked really well, intertwining with historical events and the politics of the day. In MHI, it's just your typical werewolves and vampires and basically a bunch of people try to shoot them and blow them up. I guess that didn't do it for me. The plot and character development of the Grimnoir books seemed so much more developed and interesting, while the Monster Hunter characters are superficial and stereotyped. I found myself neither believing them nor caring much one way or another what happened to them as the book progressed.

And the narrators definitely play a role. Bronson Pinchot really brought the Grimnoir series to life, not just with character voices, but with his tone and with pauses in just the right spots. Oliver Wyman kind of read MHI and didn't add much. Or maybe the writing was just that much worse and he had less to work with. I honestly don't know where one stops and the other begins.

Anyway, you have two popular series by the same author with very similar overall ratings. But in my opinion, they are nothing like each other, and I recommend digging a little deeper into the reviews to try to figure out if this is what you want.

This book pisses me off.

I bought this book based on the summary and the steller reviews. I was down for pulp monster movie action, and to be fair, MHI does deliver on that front.

Look, MHI isn't absent good things. Basically all the action set-pieces are pretty great. The enthusiastic gun descriptions don't bother me, because I like listening to people talk about something they're passionate and knowledgeable about, even if it's not of particular interest to me. The problem is everything else is unironically obnoxious and proud of it.

Here's a good litmus test of whether you'll enjoy this book. A very fit 300lb man breaks workplace safety policy and brings a concealed handgun to his office job, along with extra ammo, because he's worried about getting mugged. Is this A) Awesome! Screw the man, having a gun at all times is just good sense. B) Deeply concerning behavior, that also makes a character who's supposed to be brave seem very small and afraid.

If you didn't answer A), MHI is going to have some persistently annoying conceits for you.

***Warning for SPOILERS beyond this point. They're either minor or non-specific, but they're there.****

Oh, and just in case you thought the gun might be justified by the action scene that follows, it ends up being totally useless, and the scene would almost certainly have been more credibly tense and the resolution more impressive if it had been omitted.

My problem here isn't actually anything to do with gun rights or safety. Once our hero takes up professional monster hunting, that's a non-issue. My problem is the underlaying principles the book builds itself on that don't make any sense, and are occasionally bordering on offensive.

The most prevalent of these is that the government is both incompetent and malicious. Those darn feds want to shut down private industry, the only real way to deal with monsters. They won't let us mount missiles on our helicopter! Or give a child an assault weapon as a memento of his dead father! They'll kill people dead for revealing the truth about the supernatural world! The federal government is out to get you, and it's totally hot how the female lead is committing tax fraud.

Now look, I'm not so politically dogmatic that I couldn't go with the government-is-awful thing. But you're going to have to justify it, which the book never does. Why does it make sense for the government to act like this in the book? It's never explained, the book just relies on the reader's implicit understand that of course the government is awful, it's the government. Sure, it pays the bounties our business relys on, so what? We probably make more on private commission anyway.

Nothing is ever said about the fact that if the government wasn't involved, anyone who needed saving but couldn't pay 5 figure fees would be out of luck. The hunters are very clear that they're in it for the money, and also the killing things part. It misses the gritty dystopian vibe by trying to do the charmingly meanspirited thing, but misses charming by a mile. And then sometimes it wants to be earnest and heroic? Only in the most limply formulaic way possible.

Speaking of not-charming, our Hero! He's an accountant who gets thrown unexpectedly into supernatural conflict. An accountant who's an internationally competitive gunman, bench presses 400lbs, used to be a backroom prize fighter, and graduated with top honors. All at the ripe old age of 24! Also he's the chosen one. What a guy. Shame he can't snark with an ounce of humor, but he sure does try!

So, by about an hour into the book, I'd accepted that Owen was a character-devoid Mary Sue. I was just waiting for a hot chick to walk by and become the automatic love interest. That took another 20 minutes or so. She shows up, she's hot (but real hot, not like fake movie stars) and she likes guns. Perfect woman acquired.

But wait! She has a boyfriend! He's attractive and intelligent and good at monster hunting. What a jerk.

Luckily the book makes sure the boyfriend is actually a jerk and a coward to justify our hero's animosity. The perfect woman not being interested wouldn't be a resolvable conflict, winning her from this guy is. I mean, she keeps telling Owen she's taken and he should leave it alone and stop sticking his nose in her love life, but that just means he hasn't won yet.

He eventually does win her over by...just sticking around until she decides he was the one for her all along? Being good at hunting monsters and not a coward? Not leaving it alone when she repeatedly asked him to?

Look, it was love at first sight. They're soulmates okay?

This book makes me angry because parts of it are good. There are more books in this series, and I really wanted them to be worth reading. But the protagonists are basically what would happen if you anthropomorphized a strawman argument for libertarianism. There's more thought and page space dedicated towards constructing a supercharged shotgun than to building an arc for the main character.

That's my ultimate indictment of MHI. With a set up like "accountant becomes monster hunter" you almost have to go out of your way to not have a character arc. But the book keeps pointing out what the arc is supposed to be! It keeps coming up how Owen is supposedly struggling to chose between a normal life and the high-octane adventure that is monster hunting. But the book never, ever makes "normal life" sound appealing. Lipservice is paid toward the fact that he ever had/wanted a normal life for maybe 3 paragraphs combined? This is an audiobook, but I doubt we see more than 300 words of Owen's "normal" life.

Any of the things I've complained about could have been mitigated or even turned into strengths if handled with deftness or even just self-awareness. I kept hoping something clever would happen to turn it around! But no. There are no hidden depths here. I can put up with quite a bit of not-sterling writing in the name of fun action, but this was beyond my tolerance.

Incredible

This is a long book which makes it a better deal than most audible provides add to that how entertaining the story turned out to be and I'm more than satisfied with the purchase. I would like to add that the sample audio turned out to be a good representation of how the book is read throughout the entire story. Kudos to the narrator for carrying such a long performance well.

BANG! BANG! fizzle...

What disappointed you about Monster Hunter International?

The concept of MHI isn't new territory, that's fine. A group of mercenaries hunt monsters. It's been done but I can always go back to this sort of thing. The book starts out with a great scene in an office building with our main character being hunted by his Werewolf boss, and this scene is fantastic. It's followed up with another fantastic set piece on an abandoned freighter. From there the action scenes devolve into "then there was lots of gun fire. Then more gunfire. And afterward more gunfire and more gunfire and lots more bullets." They become tedious exercises without a hint of suspense.

The main character could easily be broken up into three or four characters. The secondary characters never get fully developed, mostly existing on the periphery of one dimensional archetypes. Our hero is too perfect; "HE'S A GENIUS! HE'S A PIT FIGHTER! HE'S AN ACCOUNTANT!" The requisite love interest is too obvious, her requisite douchey boyfriend is hated the main character as required by law. The government goons are total goons with nary a shred of basic humanity.

Has Monster Hunter International turned you off from other books in this genre?

I still enjoy books in this style, and perhaps MHI later books are significantly better, after all, this is Correia's first book. It's pretty bad because of that. But the MHI universe has a lot of followers, I can't imagine it's because the stories are universally bad.

Which scene was your favorite?

The action set piece Correia develops on an abandoned freighter is really great, it goes on for a long time and allows several characters to begin to develop; it's a shame those character's developments end there.

What character would you cut from Monster Hunter International?

I would seriously consider cutting every character from this book. Not because they are bad, but because there's too many with too few attributes. The main character is good at everything: guns, math, wrestling, fighting, weight lifting, people, etc. And this character could be broken up into three different characters: an accountant, a fighter, and a gun nut. Instead his abilities get in the way of other characters being able to do anything or contribute to parts of the narrative. The main character is part of a team but solves every problem himself.

Any additional comments?

Monster Hunter International showed some initial promise, but as the story developed, sometimes in a web-like fashion of family politics, it failed to create a real reason to really care about the vast majority of characters. The main character seemed to have intense anger issues; his demise was something I would have taken particular delight in (that doesn't bode well for your protagonist.) The gun porn was fine, even for a non-gun-nut like myself. But as the dozen or so action scenes go on they get less and less interesting. The near invincible vampires became a study in tedium as I read about the thousands of rounds of ammunition being shot at them with no progress made toward their demise. For professional monster hunters they certainly are ill-equipped to kill vampires.

I can see where this sort of thing interests people and, again, maybe the later books are better, Correia shows loads of promise here. His other novels, especially Son of Black Sword, show a matured and nuanced writer this early work barely hints at.

Awesome

I have to say that I just wanted something to fill time... After listening to it once, twice... and will do again. I was very pleased. Fast paced action that never seemed to let up. The monsters were as they should be... evil and nasty. The humor was as fast as the action and I found myself laughing out loud at times. I literally could not stop listening to this one. I loved Larry's approach to the MHI crew, and his characters were great.

Having read Lovecraft and very knowledgeable about the Cthulhu mythos, I was happy to see it incorporated in a way that stayed true to the original but was tailored to fit his story as well. This was a welcomed addition to my library and I will be buying the books also.

The story was narrated excellently and the characters sounded as I pictured they should. I was very pleased and can not wait to go on to vendetta. I would highly recommend this to any sci-fi fan.

MIB+Big Trouble in Little China+Last Action Hero

If you enjoy careless cinematic action films like Big Trouble in Little China and Last Action Hero, you will really like this book. This book was just plain fun! What a good entertaining book to listen to relieve some stress. Items I look for in a good book: 1)Characters you actually care about... check. 2)Good plot that makes you think ahead... check. 3)Good pace... check. This story is insanely involved in 20 minutes! Sure, some of the stunts and situations are over the top and the outcomes unrealistic... but it is FUN! It was fun to look up the monsters online as they came up in the story. You can feel how much fun the author had with this and it makes it a very good read. Definitely recommend! Thanks Larry! I just got part two and it just downloaded so I gotta go. later.

They Shoot Monsters, Don't They?

This was a great surprise! It's a really great action / adventure fantasy novel which doesn't pretend to be anything other than it is. Just sit back and listen to the great narration by Oliver Wyman as the adventure washes over you. I know a lot of people out there have issues with Larry Correia's gun lovin' attitudes and obvious political opinions but if you can get over that then you'll really enjoy this book (and the rest in the series). It's fun, it goes bang, it has monsters and then the monsters go bang!

Fantastic, the hunt is on!

This is a face paced story, although you need to get over the fact that you will know your guns by the end. The Hero Owen Z Pitt is both funny, humble, arrogant and fantastically violent. The rest of the gang is just brilliant and the banter will keep you giggling, The story has enough complexity to keep your interest and the characters are sufficiently rounded for you to care what happens to them. Urban fantasy at its best!

Hmm, interesting!

A good story, densely plotted, and a great reading by Oliver Wyman makes for an enthralling listen. So why only three stars? Well, partly because I think the book could have done with some stricter editing. It's a long, long journey with a number of diversions which, though entertaining, would have improved the pace of the book by their absence.
But the main reason for my docking two stars from my review is the barely hidden subtext. Anyone with any understanding of the last decade will spot the right-wing, redneck militia-leaning protagonists. For 'monsters' read 'terrorists' and for 'Monster Hunter International' read 'Anti Government vigilante militias' who operate on the basis that 'my gun is bigger than yours'. It was as if the author was channeling the spirits of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld as he wrote.
I realise that for many this aspect is probably an attractive and positive part of the story, but it left me feeling slightly uncomfortable while enjoying the mayhem. It is possible to write exciting monster hunting and supernatural mayhem books. I need only mention Jim Butcher and early Laurell K Hamilton as prime examples of politically neutral masters of the genre.

Having said all that, I'll still go for the second volume!

Wasn't what I was expecting

I have read a few of Larry's books (in the magic universe). I almost stopped reading this is I am not into werewolves and vampires. But about. 20% in I got into it. Now I am hooked on the characters and what will happen in the next book.

Loved it!

Loved this book escapism at its best.. story moved with pace.. and what a narrator!! Fantastic! .. he had each voice and accents perfect , you could clearly distinguish the many characters..his narrative of chapter 22 was so good I felt I was there in that dark damp swamp in the heat of the battle. .. it didn't get the full 5 stars only because the authors obvious love of guns did get a bit tiresome but that's the only minus point... at over 20 hours it in no way felt like it! Highly recommend!

I think this simply wasn't for me

Having listened to this I think I simply don't like the protagonist. I'm sure the whole macho shoot first think eventually thing will appeal to some but didn't for me. I found myself constantly hoping that something would manage to kill pitt for good which sadly didn't happen.

The unhealthy obsession with guns, barely hidden political views and telegraphing of events to come throughout the book left me disappointed. This was topped off by one of the most inexplicable romance angles I have ever listened to and terrible attempts to build emotion with characters before something dreadful happened to them.

However it's all fine because guns are cool, especially if you are shooting guns and even more so if you are shooting them at something that doesn't require a moral justification on if its right or wrong. I will be sticking with Harry Dresden where good story, character development and well written action blend together into an interesting and gripping read. It's a shame this book lacks any of those.

Surprisingly good, thought would be just dumb fun.

I got this book during a 2 for 1 sale, I needed a second book to finish the deal yet I couldn't find one I really wanted. I decided to go for this book as I assumed it had something to do with the monster Hunter video game series. I was a little disappointed to find out I was wrong. My disappointment didn't last as the more I listened, the more I enjoyed this book. I'm a fan of modern day twists on classic fantasy styles such as Grimm so this was very enjoyable.

Best book and series ever

Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book, and then series, is my absolute favourite. What a surprise! I didn't expect to like it based on the cover art or blurb but it was on sale at the time so I thought, why not? Boy was I glad I did. This is an AWESOME book and series and I would highly recommend.

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

Well I can't really say or I'll give it away. The first chapter will grab you though!! (pun intended)

What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

Oliver Wyman's performance in this series is beyond stellar. I've actually started buying other books based on his performance but honestly, nothing comes close to how awesome he is in this series. The persistent "Owen said" or "said Holly" are superfluous as you would know who was talking simply by the change in voice. How he can go from robust baritone to breathy falsetto, without sounding ridiculous, is aMAZing! You will not be disappointed!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

That's not really my job but I'd say: Jam packed with adventure! It'll keep you on the edge of your seat! (Yes I know. Don't give up my day job.)

Any additional comments?

The marriage of an awesome story by Larry Correia and outstanding performance is not to be missed!
