Pacific Rim: The Official Movie Novelization by Alex Irvine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Haven't seen the movie yet, but absolutely loved this book. The story concept and story world was just so intriguing and so well done.
I read this book by accident--I was browsing movie soundtracks and liked the composer for the movie, and saw there was a novelization of the movie, so got a sample of the ebook. I had to wait for something for a couple hours and started the sample to wile away the time, and I was hooked!
Characterization was deeper than expected in an adventure story--it's not as multi-layered as a women's fiction novel, but it still gives really good depth to most of the main characters.
The action was rockin'! The story reminded me a bit of those fantastic anime shows I used to watch as a kid, like Robotech and Voltron, but for adults.
I liked this book so much I bought a copy for my dad, who's a huge science fiction fan and who also likes action movies.
