I recently read Monster Hunter International by Larry Corriea. I have to tell you I waffled on buying this book. I mean I had this fear of Night of the Living Dead, Zombie Apocolypse stuff that was poorly written and didn't fit into anything that interested me. But, I read some of the reviews and I picked up on Larry's website and I thought I would take a shot at it. So, I duly brought up my Amazon account, and ordered the book. At the same time, I was ordering a bunch of other stuff so I thought of it as kind of a impulse buy.

Best impulse buy that I ever made. The book is a page turner, and one I had a hard time putting down. There is little or no, slow spots in the read. From the first few pages this thing moves the plot along quickly and efficiently, introducing characters as necessary and providing just the right level of detail to set the visuals of the situation.

Is the plot predictable? Maybe at times but for the most part it twists and turns, and just when you think it is going to go straight on for a bit, it pulls a wild left turn and zig zags all over the place.

Larry pulls in aspects of many different historical cultures and weaves them almost seamlessly into the story telling . Sorry Larry, there were a couple of abrupt points so you don't get the full seamless comment. However, I think that they abruptness may have been appropriate to the scene on occasion.

I wish I could write a story that is half as entertaining, and half as well written.

This is a damn fine book that you need to go out and read.

Monster Hunter International

It's your average, everyday Wednesday evening; I had just stopped by to pick up the latest issue of the Wellsboro Gazette. Suddenly, I found myself able to fulfill the American dream. No, not the one with the nude roller derby girls, the other "American" dream. I got to run over my boss. Understand, I felt obligated to burn hot rubber across his hairy back. No, I didn't wake up that morning and plan on killing my boss with my Subaru. It's really much more complicated than that. I would never have considered doing something that sounded so crazy. Heck, I work in a bookstore. My idea of danger is getting a paper cut. I didn't want to save the world. I didn't want to have to replace my headlight. I didn't want my insurance rates to skyrocket. I didn't want to know my boss was a werewolf...

It turns out that monsters are real, and that's why I found myself devouring Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia. Creatures from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there. Lurking in the shadows, seeking our destruction, or just plain hungry. Monster Hunter International is the number one agency for eradication of evil.

Our story starts with one Owen Zastava Pitt. He's your average, everyday working stiff. He just wants to work hard, get himself a wife and 2.5 kids, and settle in the suburbs, but when his boss literally tries to bite his head off, Owen is thrust into a world that he never knew existed - a world where monsters are exist, and there is good money to be made killing them. Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

MHI,a remarkable group of misfits that has banded together. They do more than dare to raise a candle to the darkness. They pack napalm-fed flamethrowers and lots of firepower.

Format: Paperback
Larry has managed to create a work that blends humor, action, horror, a little romance, and a strong measure of independent thought to create a fast moving, engaging story. Throughout the book, there are many times when the imagery is so strong and the story so fluid, it makes it possible to forget the 300lb Russian sleeping next to you on your international flight (in coach). Of course, there are also scenes that will make you laugh so hard you may wake up said Russian if you don't excercise some restraint. Perhaps the best thing I can say, is it's been two weeks since I've finished the book, and I'm still thinking about the characters and element of the story. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Monster Hunters International is good when it sticks to the monster hunting side of things. I was fascinated that the author obviously sat down and worked out his monster classification system before he started and didn't just make up that side of things as he went along. You can tell that Mr. Correia is very passionate about the universe he has created which is very good. Its also pretty obvious that the Owen character is an attempt to write himself into the book which doesn't work as well.

Let me back up. I knew from the start that that books about an organization that hunts monsters and repairs guns for a living was going to slant a bit further to the right then I am comfortable with but I can deal with a joke in poor taste about the Rodney King beating and yet another slam on the inability of the French to defend themselves militarily. I mean don't we all know how to defend our freighter from an army of undead ghouls? Those French are wimps.

My main problem was Owen.

Simply put I cannot stand this guy. I still can't decide if the author meant his interactions to be a parody but the more of the book I read the more I understood that the author meant for the reader to take the main character's actions at face value. He spends much of the book complaining that no one takes his abilities seriously and that the girl of his dreams will never be his because she loves another. Well one of those problems is solved when Owen is given Godlike powers by the ghost that lives in his head. Apparently it wasn't enough to be a tax code wizard, body building gun enthusiast. Once this happens all the hunters can't wait to tell Owen what a wonderful person he is. His love problems are solved by the disappearance and likely death of his chief rival.
