Publisher's Summary

Two multiple New York Times best-selling authors team up to expand Larry Correia's Monster Hunter universe!
When marine private Oliver Chadwick Gardenier is killed in the marine barrack bombing in Beirut, somebody who might be Saint Peter gives him a choice: Go to heaven, which, while nice, might be a little boring, or return to earth. The Boss has a mission for him, and he's to look for a sign. He's a marine: He'll choose the mission.
Unfortunately, the sign he's to look for is "57". Which, given the food services contract in Bethesda Hospital, creates some difficulty. Eventually it appears that God's will is for Chad to join a group called Monster Hunters International and protect people from things that go bump in the night. From there, things trend downhill.
Monster Hunter Memoirs is the (mostly) true story of the life and times of one of MHI's most effective - and flamboyant - hunters. Protips for up-and-coming hunters range from how to dress appropriately for jogging (low-profile body armor and multiple weapons) to how to develop contacts among the Japanese yakuza to why it's not a good idea to make billy goat jokes to trolls.
Grunge harkens back to the Golden Days of Monster Hunting, when Reagan was in office, Ray and Susan Shackleford were top hunters, and Seattle sushi was authentic.

Definitely Not Correia

Simply put, just not as good as the regular series. Sorta like listening to 8 hours of some drunk guy bragging about how awesome he is, how many girls he's had and how much of a badass he is. Just not as good as the regular series.

Stop. Just Stop. Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $$

Potential Reader. Stop. Do not purchase this steaming pile of crap.

I own all the other books in this series and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. I was very excited to see a new one coming out so close to my birthday. So it is with a very heavy heart that I give this book a very bad review. Nothing against the reader. He does an amazing performance and I look forward to seeing more books read by him.

We all know and love Larry Correia's work from all of his previous books. I find it very interesting that he's opened the world of MHI for other authors to put in their own works. This is very rarely done, if ever, and allows fresh works to come in. However, it also allows steaming rotten garbage filth like Ringo to pollute the waters.

Monster Hunter Memoirs is told from the perspective of a possibly dead hunters journal. This book has something like seven to eight different short stories in it. Touching on important events throughout the main characters life, with no real connection between any of them.
The main character Chad is raised during the late 50's, 60's, and 70's by a College Professor father and a mother who, while being a notable anthropologist spends most of her time mingling in political circles advocating for rights and notoriously against any form of violence. Chad's dad dishes out grades based on how good the sex was, and his mother disapproved of everything Chad does. By preschool he was so smart he was doing algebra. By the time he was nine years old he had taught himself fluency in close to 9 different languages; at-least two of which are considered dead or lost languages. He's a savant violinist, has an IQ greater than Einstein, Master of at least two different martial arts, A Top-Tier Marksman, and a Custom Gun Engineer.

That my fellow readers is literally, Text-Book Definition of a "Mary Sue" Character.

Characters like this belong at the bottom pile of fan fiction stories. These are the kinds of characters you create when you are just learning how to write short stories. It's easily one of the first No-No's of any higher education classes. The character is simply unbelievable. Seriously. In this book you will hear how he single-handedly defeated a Master Vampire, in a cramped hallway with all of his teammates trying to get up after being paralyzed by Wights... with a Katana. He ends up with "good connections" in the Yakuza, CIA, Special Agent Stricken, and many others.

Yeah, I'm spoiling the book. Because I'm trying to show you how shit-tastic this book is.
And Mr. Ringo has Book 2 coming out this Winter! Do not support this!

If you have no qualms with reading a story that literally takes a steaming pile of shit on everything Mr. Correia has built up over the past 5 books. Then by all means. Get this. The only reason I am not returning this, is because I have family that wants to read this one. If they can finish it before September, I will be dropping this one and I will not be getting the next one.

Honestly, I'm surprised Mr. Correia and his Publisher even let this one get through. It's like he couldn't be bothered to read it and just signed the okay to let Mr. Ringo run away with it. if you want an author that will do you justice for this series/world. get almost any other author except John Ringo.

NEXT!

The ending is to die for! And the beginning and the middle. it's hilarious all the way through. I love the monster hunter world. The narration is top notch. And guys there is some serious emotional manipulation too. Can't wait for the next installment!
