Great book for fans of Predator

Loved it. Only one story wasn't to my taste (hence the 4 stars for story) but a great listen overall. Highly recommend it for anyone who enjoyed the Predator movies, comic books or graphic novels.

Great collection for Fanboys

Have to admit I'm a nerd. I play D&D and Video Games, read lots of SciFi and Fantasy, and enjoy campy Action and Horror flicks. I really savored this compendium of action-filled stories, almost all under an hour, about one of my favorite characters.

I was pretty worried when buying this book that such a visually impressive creature (almost tailor-made for Movies/TV and Graphic Novels) wouldn't be done justice in this format. I was wrong. It translates great to audiobook.

There are a few lame stories and dreadful performances, but what do you expect from 16 different recordings?...not all are going to fit your tastes perfectly. Personally, I'm not a fan of stories written from the perspective of the Alien. I think it's more effective if the creature remains mysterious, not thinking of it's "clan" back home. I don't really care for it's motivation. Concentrate on events, especially in short story form. I don't really care that the stories develop the "character" of a relentless, ruthless hunter. Switching back and forth from human and Predator perspective is done, too. Quite a few of those.
And face it, Salman Rushdie is never writing a "Predator" tale. Some of the authors aren't exactly MENSA members..."He instructed they put 3 minutes on the clock. They put up a countdown of seconds for more drama. It counted down from 240..."You were expecting 'literature'?

Overall it's fun, and more hit than miss. I give it a solid 4 out of 5 Stars.

Great stories

Great work. Lot of great stories. Audible needs to work on the other predator novels to have them available for their listeners.

Some better than others

This book was ok, some of the stories contained within were way better written and voice acted than others. What I did enjoy was that unblooded Predators were several levels below their more experienced older counter parts and it showed.

Great Listen

Great idea. 16 stories all worth listening to. Hope there is more like these in the future. Expand it into Aliens vs Predators vs Humans

Fun listen

I enjoyed most of the stories. A problem I found was that some writers stretched things a bit. One story with Predators going after 2 people who defeated some nearly a decade earlier was one. How did these Predators find them? How did the information get to them? Then a Predator prisoner forced in illegal fight in outer space. A rescue party shows up. How they did they find him? That was balanced out with a possible reason for why General Stonewall Jackson was shot by one of his own men during the Civil War among the other stories. This is a book that most can enjoy.

For the Love of Predator

This is a totally biased review since I love Predator and all things Predator. These stories are short and sweet and packed with all the things people love about Predator. There are 16 short stories ranging in time and space. A must read/listen for Predator fans.

Predator: If It Bleeds

I don’t write many reviews but in this case I must say that I really enjoyed this book with all the short stories. They were all excellent. I want more!

Fun Stories involving Ya-ucha (Predator)

I enjoyed almost every story. I am generally not a fan of short story collections, but this one was irresistible. We get to see Stone wall Jackson face these perfect hunters! Each story feels like a real historical antidote documenting the human encounters with this relentless foe.

I elect to keep my review short so I don't let any spoilers slip! If you are a fan of the Predator world of movies, books, and the occasional bloodbath, then this is the book for you. It's also convenient that each chapter starts a new story.

A mix of good and okay

Some stories were great, while others were mediocre. storyteller was fine. Only a few parts added to the lore. It honestly felt like being read potential scripts. No regrets though.

MEH

Some stories were good; some not. Some narrators were good; some not. A few of the stories definitely should be made into full length novels. The story involving Fernando was hilarious! I wish that one was full-length. All in all, most of the stories were lame. Not worth the $.

Great Stories!

Was amazing except for the last narrator. He sounds like a computer. Otherwise, loved it!
