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.

    "Excellent story, accurately depicted weapons"

    This is a great entry into action fantasy. The pace is quick. The action sequences are detailed. And the weapons described are correctly detailed.

    Story
    "Much better than expected"
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter International?

    Was not expecting much from this book (got it on sale and was in the mood for a light read to make a long car trip bearable). However, it was one of the better action/adventure/monster books I've ever read, with a very cool setting, interesting characters, and, above all, excellent action scenes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author seems to know guns very well, and it was refreshing to see them portrayed in a realistic manner - so many adventure authors seem to feature guns and gunplay as core elements of their stories while doing virtually NO research as to how they actually work in the real world. Having characters actually have to worry about things such as reloading, effective ranges, bullet penetration, etc. was refreshing in a genre where so many characters load "bullets" into shotguns and effortlessly make 200 yard shots in the dark from a moving vehicle with a handgun.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's hard to pick a favorite moment from this book, but there is a little bit of everything to be had here - action, romance, humor, character development, and some moments that are genuinely emotional, suspenseful, and/or engrossing.


    Any additional comments?

    My only real complaint about this book is the somewhat awkward way profanity is dealt with. It's almost as if the author originally wrote it for adults and then changed his mind and did a poor job of find/replacing the profanity with more innocuous comments. A character will use a very childish insult in one sentence and then call someone a s***head the next. If he had picked one and stuck with it it wouldn't be as noticeable, but the juxtaposition really makes it hard to miss after a few chapters.

    "Great Story"

    First time listening to a book by Larry Correia. I really enjoyed the story, and the narrator, Oliver, also did a terrific job... listening at 1.5x speed, otherwise the narration moves too slow. But the speed thing applies to most audio books.

    For people who like this book, I would recommend the Zombie Fallout series by Mark Tuff, and I would recommend this book to people who liked that series. But seriously people, listen to your audio books at 1.5x and you will enjoy them much more.

    I will continue to buy books in this series.

    "A book for the Interstates"

    Great narration. Perfect selection for my cross country drive. If it were a paper book I'd label it a page -turner.

    Story
    "While you are waiting for the next Dresden book..."
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    If Dresden is a Netflix or HBO original series then MHI is a summer blockbuster. Awesome action, likable characters, and good clean fun.


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

    The Dresden files. If Dresden is a Netflix or HBO original series then MHI is a summer blockbuster. Same sense of fun, adventure, and darkness. MHI's plots don't seem as intricate as Dresden's.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    If the opening chapter/fight of this book doesn't hook you then I don't even know what to say.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Ignore the naysayers who claim the book pushes a political agenda. MHI loves guns. That is it, that is the only "politics" in the book. Unless you find gun porn offensive you should be fine.
