A mixed lot

Some of the stories follow in the same enjoyable “popcorn” fiction but I found other short stories really hard to listen to.

Loved the last short story about Franks which was a great finish to the book.

A hit & miss series of stories

A wide variety of stories told in a great universe, only thing is some of the stories are better than others
The highlights include the stories about Agent Franks, the gnome and elf turf war and Jim Butchers entry which I won't spoil here
Despite some of the stories not being the greatest, all stories are very well performed by the voice actors

I LIKE THESE COLLECTIONS

This collection of Monster Hunter short
storys was a fun and fine addition to the
Monster hunter series. I actually enjoy
the short stories better than the full length
versions. Some of the long version, get
bogged down. Not all of these shorties are
great, but if you don't like one it's over in a
little while.
This is a fine collection of short stories.

Eh.

A Lot of the stories and performances were hit-and-miss for me. I'm a big fan of this series, but not so much of this book. It was neat to get some insight into the expanded universe in different characters and their backstories, but for me a lot of the stories and performances were hit-and-miss.

BTW this is the first book in this series I have not completely 5 *...

Varied stories from various authors

The Monster Hunter Files
(Monster Hunter International)
by Larry Correia (Author, Editor)
I love the Monster Files and this has different author's stories. I like these authors but I felt some of these stories were only about 3 stars and some 4 stars. Most 3 stars! I liked them just not what I am used to with Monster Files.
The narration varied also with each story.

Variable story quality

This has 18 stories and each storyline and concept are wildly different. Some were good but a few didn't measure up to the quality I have been used to.

A worthy distraction

Recommended for a commuter fan of the genre. These jerks require fifteen words to post a review.

Decent but not quite the same monster hunter

The stories were ok with some being really well done and others falling very flat. Oliver Wyman was excellent as always but the other narrators were not good. Overall 3.5 worth a listen.

First monster hunter book

For my first monster hunter book, this isn't too bad. I enjoyed most of the stories but there's a few I didn't really care for.
For not having read any of the other books, I wasn't that lost. You can catch up on things pretty easily.
Should've been more of a pause or break in between stories. You kind of finish one and immediately start reading the next.
Overall, pretty good. I'll be reading some of the first books to get more of the main story next

monsters galore

I enjoyed this book. The readers were great. the short story format made it easier to stop and start the book. If you don't mind completely improbable and a bit of blood and violence, you will love this. very fast paced and well written. A new hero, monster, and adventure with every new entry. Good fun!

MHI Rules!

Separate, varied but intertwining stories are action packed with a perfect blend of horror and humor. Outstanding on all fronts...

Loved the series, but...

I've really enjoyed this series, but couldn't get into a lot of these short stores. In some cases it felt like I'd walked into a story half way through and couldn't get my head round what was going on.

Let down by bad casting

Yet another audible book where instead of hiring a Jamaican narrator a white man is used. Resulting in the most ridiculous and distracting Jamaican accent I have ever heard. We had American, Scottish, South African, Russian, and Dutch accents. Seriously!? Kudos to the narrator for trying his best, not his fault the editor and director couldn't be bothered to hire a Jamaican. I could barely stand listening to the story "the dead yard" because of this.

Very Light Weight

I'm a big fan of Larry Correia but this collection, mainly by other authors, is very poor. Don't waste your money
