Overview

Pacific Rim: The Official Movie Novelization by Alex Irvine

The official novelization of the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Pacific Rim from visionary director Guillermo del Toro!

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.

On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

"I wanted to make not a war movie, but an adventure movie, with a huge, romantic sense of adventure, a sense of grandeur, and operatic battles..." - Guillermo Del Toro

Still a better love story than Twilight.

I loved the movie and I love the book.  The book goes a bit deeper into what the characters are thinking about and how they feel in the moment.  I hope there is a sequel!!!!

Good book, gives a more detailed background of charaters and history then the movie.

This was a good book, a great tie-in for the movie. I bought it because, while I saw the movie, which was fun to watch, the day I saw it there was some problems in the theater which distracted me from paying attention to the prologue, so i didn't really understand the timeline of events. But, this book was also great for the character profiles!

Thought it was going to be more action packed or atleast a bit better dialog and it gets confusing in the middle.

You must read and watch Pacific Rim! It is awesome! SPOILER ALERT PLEASE DO NOT READ PAST THIS LINE IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK OR SEEN THE MOVIE YET----------------------------I DO NOT WANT TO BE THE ONE SPOILING IT---------------The first time, the plasma cannon was to slow, so a Kaiju easily took down the Gypsy Danger. The Kaiju just ripped off one of the arms of the Gypsy Danger. It was really awesome when one of the Kaiju just took out all the electricity in the middle of the movie. When they upgraded the plasma cannon so it would go faster, they shot pretty much every Kaiju they saw with the Gypsy Danger. It was epic when a category five Kaiju started to swim toward the surface. One of my favorite parts in the movie was when the Gypsy Danger picked up a cruise ship an rammed it into a big Kaiju. -Signed, General_Irons

This story kind of came to a close very well and if they made a sequel it would probably make no sense

I would have given it a full five stars had I not noticed (this may be my mind playing tricks on me) that there had been revisions made to the book between reading it directly after purchasing it. With how often the Nook syncs up with what's stored online I wouldn't be surprised if it WAS revised. With that said I would greatly appreciate it if an explanation were to be brought forth for this.

The pace was fluid and the action non-stop; just like the movie.
