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.

This is barely an MHI story

The protagonist is one of the most annoying characters I have read since Holden Caulfield; every chance he gets we are reminded that he is a genius and really likes sex ... Whether it serves the story or not.

I haven't read any of John Ringo's stories (and I most likely won't after this) but I wonder if he has a fetish? The character "Iron Hand" is a braggart and comes of like a sad little man embellishing stories for the kids he hangs around to make himself feel cool.

I also wonder if Mr. Ringo's read any of the other MHI stories; there is a disturbing lack of evidence that he has. Earl Harbinger would punch "Iron Hand" in the mouth and then fire him.

I love being back in that work I just didn't care for my guide.

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.
