PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTION

Oliver Wyman gives a good performance in Monster Hunter International; he takes Owen Pitt character and makes it his own. The voice fits the character just enough gruff in his voice to make it believable at the same time he doesn’t pass that tone into the over macho voicing. There are some production issues where words seem to be missing and resemble track changes from legacy CD audio. There are enough of those to make you notice and think the story may have paused, but by the time you look the story continues, overall, I will give MHI audio a 4 out 5. MHI gets 3 out of 5 for production quality and Oliver Wyman gets a 5 out of 5.


STORY

 Monster Hunter International follows Owen Zastava Pitt through his introduction to the world of monster hunting when his boss turns into a werewolf and tries to eat him. Then, Owen gets to meet the government, who threaten to kill him, and a bunch of monster mercenaries that were impressed with the security camera footage of Owen vs the Werewolf. I have heard this series before, and the amount of hidden foreshadowing for not only later in the book but later in the series, is truly impressive and shows the level of detail Larry Correia put into these books.

Owen while going through training meets his team Trip, Holly, and Albert lee when their training is abruptly canceled by a situation that could cause the end of the world. “The Newbie Squad” gets attached to the best and most experienced monster hunting team in the company and spends most of the book getting their ass kicked and trying to find out how to stop the end of the world. It’s funny, lots well done action, lots of guns, and a very awkward love triangle. Owen needs to stick to guns his MAC skills are only suitable for McDonalds, but the story must move on and prophecies do not fulfill themselves. This is a great series that I can’t wait to dive into more in depth, I’m giving Monster International story a 4 out 5. This could have been 5 out of 5, but those scenes with Owen and Julie are just painful. Luckily those are just a minor portion in the story.




OVERALL

    I enjoyed the hell out of Monster Hunter International, it makes me look forward to other in this series and that is my main hope when I start a possible new series. This was so close to perfect I'm going to give it a 5 out of 5. Make sure you pick up a copy if you like Urban Fantasy, it is a fun listen.
