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.

    "what's an accountant got to do to get some peace?"

    owen z pitt just wants to be normal. he is so used to playing the aww shucks card that it gets in his way. the creatures that inspired hp lovecraft are very real. and they have been waiting eons to find someone like pitt he has the skills the training and the sheer bloody mindedness to fullfil their prophecy and open the portal. all he wants to do is be normal. but who's definition of normal should he use?

    "Better than expected, combines many genres"

    I didn't expect much after listening to the preview, but hoped for the best. I was happily surprised at how great it was. The way he combined military, mythology, romance, and horror was AMAZING! I especially loved the references and integration of H. P. Lovecraft and JRR Tolkien, but modified so they were not rip-offs. The modifications made them unique to his story.

    Story
    "Fantastic. New genre for me: Monsters, Magic, and Guns."

    What a great book. I found this book because I liked "Hard Magic (The Grimnoir Chronicles)" so much. I was unsure about the 'monsters' part of the book since I don't like horror movies/books. But "Monster Hunter International" is so much more.

    Great plot, no dumb 'the power is off and the phone lines are cut so I should go into the basement' scenes, fantastic detail and wonderful humor and wit. Lots of great quotable lines like in the 'Princess Bride'.

    It's long, but worth it. I listened to it on 1.25 speed.

    If you like a fun book with great action, listen to this book. Oliver Wyman does a fantastic job reading it with inflection and memorable character voices and interpretations.

    If you are looking to use an Audible credit, spend it on this book. =^)

    "Great story"

    Great story, the reader sounded really good, but didn't have a perfect range. Bought the next book already.

    "Always a great story."

    I've read the paperback version half a dozen times and listened to the audible at least that many times and the story never gets old. The narrator does a great job with the characters and is pleasant to listen to.

    "Excellent"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I can't wait to experience more tales from Mr Correia. Listening to this audio book reminded me of two great American writers who were pen-pals, the action writing of Robert E Howard and the bizarre supernatural content of H.P. Lovecraft. I think I've found a new author to follow. It also makes me wanna go out and find more 3 gun competitions to participate in....

    "heading"

    Overall it's fun. The action is exciting and the descriptions are clear and vivid. on the other hand the dialog is hard to listen to and the characters are boring. The voice acting took me a minute to get used to, but once I did, I found it well acted and I liked his range of different voices.

    "Light and fun"

    This book for me was like an action movie - no elaborate plot to speak of and I had a very good idea what's going to happen at the end from the start, but sometimes I just want to move away from deeper meaning and watch things explode. Hence the three stars for the plot - if I was in a different mood or it was an actual book I wouldn't have finished it, but it is a good audiobook.
    Overall it was light and fun and good entertainment.
