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

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.

Decent

A fairly simple book, but entertaining nontheless. Ideal for those listening to a book while doing something slightly distracting.

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!

Ok monster story to pass the time.

This came up as an Audible recommendation because I've listened to a bunch of fantasy and sci-fi books. I would say it was just "ok".
The whole 'giant of a man who's a lovable oaf/teddy bear who can rip your head off/immediately falls in love with the hottest girl in the whole book and acts sheepishly awkward around her at every interaction but isn't afraid of vampires or other monsters' got pretty old pretty fast. I found myself rolling my eyes and sighing out loud in every scene with those two characters. I even made gagging sounds a few times.
The monster action and fight scenes were interesting, but I found the narrator to be at little too melodramatic and slow for my taste.

Fun, light, and predictable

I did enjoy the book as it was fun and light. However, I was able to predict the ending of the book about mid way through. Every twist was easy to conclude given the facts provided making the book more of a chore to complete.
