Great novelization!!!

I love how they added a short story in there about Godzilla saving another Titan this was actually from Godzilla Dominion, one of the prequel graphic novels for Godzilla vs Kong. My only complaint is that I wish they chose Michael Braun to narrate the novel as he did a great job in King of The Monsters not that Richard Ferrone is bad I just don't think he can convey excitement especially during the monster battles as much as other narrators... Other than that great book for anyone that wants to expand their knowledge of the Mythology of the Monsterverse

Should've been the film but that's okay

Godzilla vs Kong the Official Novelization is what the film SHOULD'VE been but that's okay, as the film is being received with praise and recognition by critics and audiences, box office earnings are excellent.. I loved how the novel brought more context to the human storyline, such as Dr. Nathan Lind, Bernie Hayes, Mark Russell, Ren Serizawa, Maia Simmons etc.

The story is more fleshed out, and feels more of a sequel to KOTM, Skull Island, Godzilla 2014 than never acknowledging those films so much in the finished product like Outpost 23 (King Ghidorah resting place) in Antarctica and what happened after he came free.

The narrator is great, no problems with him.

I fully recommend this Novelization from a person who doesn't really read novelizations, as a huge MonsterVerse fan myself, I would pick up this book and audio for fuller context into the film if you felt disappointed or confused about the plot of the film if you care about the human characters.

Less people.

too much focous on humans, not enough gaint monsters. The handling of the human characters was rather poor. ShinGodzilla had better human scenes.

More details than the movie

You need this book to appreciate what’s missing from the movie. More backstory on the human characters actually helps with filling most of the plot holes. Fun listen. Better than the previous book adaptation.

Great Novelization of the Film with Extras

I enjoyed the prior novelization Keyes did of the prior film. This book is just as good. With extra scenes that give insight and explain things that were glossed over or left out of the film, (which I loved). Characterization is great and the novel is fast paced. The fight scenes are exciting and you learn more about Hollow Earth and what happened to the other titans after the last film. You also learn more about several of the scientists and Monarchs efforts prior to the start of this film. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook. Richard Ferrone gave a great reading in a throaty story tellers voice.

Better than the movie!

Fantastic reading. the movie was a great spectacle, but the book expands on the concepts and deeper lore of the Monsterverse. I hope to see future novelizations of the Monsterverse content, and would love to hear recordings of older Godzilla novelizations, as well.
