I take it the author is super famous. I randomly came across this for free on Kindle and decided to give it ago.

The audible is done by Whil Wheaton.

I enjoyed it enough for a light fun read.

The book remains creative throughout. I think it started off funny and ended with a good sense of adventure.

However the middle felt quite a bit bogged down. Every character was written to be just the most sarcastic person ever. Which made everyone feel the same. This isn’t helped by the narration which is a bit odd. Not bad, just odd. Like the narrator is laughing at what he’s saying as he’s saying it

Overall though, it’s a fun big monster book

You are thinking of Kaiju: Battlefield Surgeon by Matt Dinniman.

Kaiju Preservation Society is by John Scalzi.

IMO Scalzi now thinks he's funnier than he is. Kaiju and Redshirts were both just OK (though I know Redshirts had its fans). His more serious sci-fi - Old Man's War series, even Collapsing Empire series, were much better.

Opened this thread thinking it had something to do with that fricked up weirdo that hangs out on the movie/tv board all the time
