While the kaiju eiga genre of media may not be for everyone, this is a lovingly crafted book of notes and perspectives on the Big G. It is at once thorough and accessible for people of all ages and is an essential text for both beginners and experts interested in knowing more about Godzilla and his enduring popularity.
Synopses of every Godzilla movie made prior to the third series of G-films (the one that began with Godzilla 2000), as well as pictures and info on every monster to appear. Not essential, mind-expanding reading by any stretch of the imagination, but fun to thumb through on a rainy day.
