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.

    "Couldn't set it down"

    I had never heard of the author before, but took a chance based on the good reviews. Glad I did!!! I loved it!! its fast paced, plenty of action, and the narration was perfect. Since listening to it the first time, I've listened to all of the books in the series. I also listened to his Grimnior series and liked it even more!!!

    "Great story"

    Iv reviewed many books on audible and it seems I have the same complaint about many. This book could be half as long as it is. You can be really in to the story and it seems like it's clicking almond at a decent pace then the author goes off in another direction and takes 15 minutes describing feelings or something else. So I'm thinking to myself "ok yea he's afraid. Got it. Move on". I don't like being at a climactic point in the story the. Have the author stop forward progress to explain that the main character is afraid because of something that happened in his childhood then go into a long drawn out psychological description of why he's afraid and the effects on the human mind blah blah blah. Get on with it!!!! That's just my personality. You might be the type of reader who likes details. If you are then you won't mind the writing. I just like a little faster paced story. It's pretty common that you will be interested in the story line then you look down and it's been 20 minutes since the story line progresses at all.
    Ok that being said..... The story is super addicting and this is one of those books I find myself still awake at 230am because I can't stop listening. The narrator does an awesome job in the presentation and even when the story line is held up by entirely too many details it's done in such a way that you are not bored. This book is worth a credit no doubt about it.

    "Good series beginning"

    Owen Pitt becomes a member of Monster Hunter International, when his life is threatened by a werewolf and The Old Ones want to end the earth as we know it.
    The story gives us a whole lot of background about what Monster Hunter International is and the training of new recruits. Luckily, by the end of the book we've grown accustomed to the troop and want to hear more from them.
    Enjoyed listening to this one, but prefered the Grimnoir Chronicles series, partly due to the excellent narration.

    "Oliver Wyman is an amazing reader"

    When it comes to audio books there is so much on the reading performer and Oliver Wyman is an amazing reader.

    The book is very entertaining as well although using a lot of cliches but that didn't prevent it from being an action packed an addictive.

    "I Liked It"

    I liked it plenty. Just a little cerebral; not much though, really. Good action visualizations via the detailed descriptions. Looking forward to the next.

    Story
    "My 13 year old was listening and got hooked too!"
    Where does Monster Hunter International rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up at the top. My 13 year old and I have listened to all of Rick Riordan, and I mean all, the Seven Wonders series (Amazing!!), the Last Apprentice series, and I thought this series was for me. He started listening and asked if he could listen. It was so good the first time, I started over with him and am on my second reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He is not afraid to make his lead a little goofy. He is big, burly, super strong, and can take a hit...but there is always someone who is just a little better than him. It doesn't make him weak, but it does make the story fun and interesting. 'Parlez vous this, M***** F***er!" is by far one of the goofiest lines, and he knows it...making fun of the character through another right after the line is uttered. I like that this story doesn't take itself too seriously.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never heard him before, but I will be hearing him again for the sequel.


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

    No LOL or crying, but I definitely want to hear the next one...

    "Memorable"

    I liked it but i just don't see that it can be continued. Not picking up the next once in the series I think. But i DO recommend reading this one. Once.
