For those who aren't familiar, the book is set in the world of Larry Correia's blockbuster Monster Hunter International series. The series mostly centers around Owen Zastava Pitt as he joins Monster Hunter International, a band of redneck libertarian mercenaries from south Alabama who hunt monsters. The series is pretty much exactly as awesome as that makes it sound.
Bestselling author John Ringo wrote this entry, however. After the editing job turned into a bit more than just editing, Mr. Correia became a co-author.
Fans of both Mr. Ringo and Mr. Correia will love this book. Unfortunately, I only really fit into one of those categories. I have not read much by Mr. Ringo before, but what I have read I have only moderately enjoyed. I did, however, enjoy this book quite a bit more than I have enjoyed Mr. Ringo's other works.
The problem I tend to run into with Mr. Ringo's works is that largeish portions of them come off as either lectures or preaching to the choir, depending upon your political inclinations. I'm not particularly fond of either. I understand quite well why this has brought Mr. Ringo a massive audience - I'm simply not a huge fan of it myself.
With that said, this book exhibits considerably less of that than other works of his that I've read. And what it does have comes off less as a direct lecture to the reader and more of just showing the main character's personality. I found that much easier to stomach. Also, when Mr. Ringo isn't lecturing to me the book is generally a heck of a lot of fun.
On the other hand... even though it's assembled as a novel, the book reads more like a collection of short stories strung together than like a typical novel plot. I guess that fits with the "Memoirs" theme, but left me a bit unsatisfied.
All told, I'd give it three and a half stars - but existing fans of Mr. Ringo would probably add an extra star on top of that.
My 6th audiobook from the Monster Hunter series. This one is coauthored by Larry Correia and John Ringo. Great addition to the MH universe. The tone is lighter than the first five I've read (#1 to 4 and #6) with a nice touch of humor. My only complaint is that the book is a bit short compared to the others.
Larry Correa & John Ringo prove they are so both on the same page from start to finish. From fighting Zombies to clearing Demons out of the local computer R&D department...MONSTER HUNTER GRUNGE is just as much fun to read as the other books.
The main character, Chad, shares a little bit of origin that Ringo's Kildar, but takes it in his own way. Living in Correia's world can be a daunting task...but John's style and Larry's humour mesh perfectly...and I eagerly await the next book.

Heck, even the prologue is full of ego.
