A great start to a terrific series.

Long after I've forgotten Devlin and Emmerich's effects laden lizard-fest, I'll still be thinking fondly of Marc Cerasini and his Godzilla novels. Reading these books is like taking a peek into a better world, where Godzilla movies are unencumbered by budget, unfettered by cautious studio executives, and where they can finally tell the stories we've been waiting to see.There's a scene in this book, where a plan to contain Godzilla goes badly wrong, and a helicopter literally bounces down the creatures back. It's so vividly written and paced that I found myself forgetting to breath as the images came alive in my mind. Cerasini's love of the subject matter is obvious, and his skill in telling a tight and exciting tale is just as hard to deny. What's more, he manages to avoid some of the absurdities present in even the most recent Godzilla movies from Toho. The world in Cerasini's novels is one that will forever be marked by the emergence of the monsters, and the effects are progressive and remain evident from book to book. Though the book is listed as being for "young adults", it has plenty to recommend it to "slightly older adults". Pick it up while you still can - then hassle Random House to bring out "Godzilla and the Lost Continent".

Forget Y2K, get ready for G2K!

This is a great book with action and suspense! The only problem was that they kept switching to a different story every few minutes. But still a great book!

Godzilla is back...and better than ever!

This book is this movie all the G-fans really wanted the team of Emmerich and Devlin to deliver. Chock full of monsters and mayhem, a properly somber tone (the monsters actually kill and eat people) and, most importantly, a serious repect and deep love for the subject matter, Godzilla 2000 is the perfect read for any Godzilla fan of any age. An essential G-book.


This book is probably better than Marc's first G-Novel, GODZILLA RETURNS, mainly because it has more action and is longer.I could not put this book down because of the exciting scenes, especially the final battle between King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Godzilla! I would have liked to see more of Godzilla and less of G-Force though. Nonetheless, highly reccomended!

Review by a Godzilla Web Page Owner

One of the best books I have read. Marc Cerasini is truley a great writer. This book give's Godzilla more of a real world feel. The best of all the Godzilla books.
