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.

Well, when you see the title of the book, you kind of know what you are getting. MHI is a heavily action based urban fantasy about a private organisation that hunt all the creatures of legend while having to keep their existence (and that of the `monsters') a secret. New recruit is Owen Pitt, an accountant, but an accountant that is built like a brick outhouse, who is a talented fighter and a top shooter (well, what were you honestly expecting?)

So we are not supposed to take this seriously and just go with the flow. It's actually quite a long story, unusual in an urban fantasy and, amongst the mowing down of vampires etc, does have a plot. The writing is not complex and the characters are not overly developed but it is still quite a fun ride. Author Larry Correia is a gun fanatic (owns a shop and enters competitions) and this is reflected as he does over do the gun stuff a bit, but there is still plenty here to enjoy if you want something mindlessly entertaining. If you want something deep and meaningful, this isn't the book for you.

Fair Disclosure: I consider Larry Correia to be a friend. I'm going to try to give as unbiased a review as possible (and anyone who knows me--which almost no-one who reads this review will--knows I'm likely to be even more brutally honest about my friends than anyone else) but you may feel free to take this review with a grain of salt.

I'm giving MHI a solid 4.5 stars. Amazon doesn't allow that, so I went with 4 to give as much warning as possible. I read a lot. I read a lot of science-fiction. (Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle) I read a decent amount of military fiction. (David Drake, John Ringo) I read a moderate amount of horror. (Poppy Z. Brite, Richard Matheson) Correia does a good job of tickling all of those interests.

It's not a perfect book. It has some rough spots, as any first time author will. But I've read MHI 3 times, and laughed out loud each time I've read it. It still inspires "sit down and read through" marathons. For those who like books that keep the tension factor up, and don't mind a bit of scary and gruesome, this book is a fine addition to your library. I was fortunate enough to be on the "pre-distribution" list, and sat and read the entire book the first run through, and have done so each of the subsequent times I've read it in published form.

It's not perfect, but it's real close, and a darn fine read. I eagerly anticipate reading about the further adventures of Owen Zastava Pitt, and the folks at Monster Hunter International.
