Do you know what a paradigm shift really is? It’s a handy solution, I thought. A really fun novel. The real stars of kaiju films were always the monsters. Nope, they’re stuck with conventional weaponry. I enjoyed this book.

I like this, because it means the beasties aren’t dispatched by simple brute force.
None of the characters are terribly fleshed out or three dimensional but that really only serves to reinforce the feeling of a kaiju movie and series where characters tend to have one or two pronounced personality traits and roles to fill. MM9 is the kind of book that frustrates me on so many levels, but primarily it’s a difficult read because it couldn’t been a much bigger, much more human book than what it was.
Read the whole review. Now, that is a book that will probably keep my interest, and make me gush, for years to come. While the characters are typical, the ideas behind the kaiju and the types of them are pretty interesting.
The idea is quite good, but the execution leaves something to be desired. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Jul 24, D. Most of them, while having some similarities to movie monsters, are different enough to stand out. The problem comes from the accidental crossover between these two universes and sometimes purposeful crossover, when the novel wants to go into the instances of kaiju terrorism.
Keen eyed readers will pick up on passing references and nods to Lovecraft, the movie Them!

Now, you may be wondering: Those with affection for monster movies will spot lots of references to classic movies. I know that may sound weird to say, considering it’s a book that deals with Kaiju and gigantic creatures stomping all over the Earth and particularly all over Japan, but I felt the characters could’ve been fleshed out more, given some more backstory, and developed to a point where I could tell one from the other.
It’s educational as well as entertaining. You can see that evolution in style as the book progresses; early on, it feels like he just wants to write some fun giant monster stories but is burdened by knowing too much science and having to work hard to get around the square-cube law, but by the end, he’s cracked how to make it work and built a world that not only references Japanese kaiju movies and legends, but mythology and folklore from around the world, including American horror and sci-fi from Ray Harryhausen to H.
It’s a light, quick, fun read. These monsters didn’t just appear out of nowhere, they are a fundamental part of our history, and always have been. If you don’t know Km9, I can’t help you. Reads L to R Western Style.

One other really disappointing turn mm for me was that one of the Kaiju was a young girl who could grow into a large giant. It’s refreshing to see that kind m,9 thought put into a giant monster story – something you don’t often see in the kaiju films of old. For those not geeky enough to know this word, never fear, Trike is here: A tremendously fun book that appears to be constructed out of five short stories – or, more likely, started out as shorts which evolved a structure as Yamamoto wrote more.
Gained popularity with juvenile titles such mm9 February at the Edge of Time and the Ghost Hunter series. Paperbackpages. Unfortunately, they’re written with as much personality as Captain Scarlet and half the charisma.

There’s not a lot of awkward phrasing or verbiage though this causes the one or two moments that an odd turn of phrase pops up too really jump out at m,9 reader.
I could see this being made into an anime! This book is very smart–a brilliant deconstruction of its own genre–and extremely cool. Lists with This Book. It’s a very brisk and action-packed read too, and I really wanted more. Still the reason behind the monsters remains just a theory as even the experts don’t really know what creates them. Apr 24, David B jm9 it really liked it.
Perhaps it was a recommendation for me on Amazon, based on my more recent forays into translated science fiction, such as Metro and Roadside M,9 Dec 17, Derek Vasconi rated it it was ok.
