Available now from Titan Books, hit the jump to find out how you can get your hands on one of three copies of Alex Irvine's official movie novelization of Guillermo del Toro's (which is in theatres now).

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'm just going to hold my tongue on this one.

I thought there wasn't much of a story and the only good thing about the movie was the SFX, so.....
Reading the book sounds even worse than watching the movie.

I appreciate that Josh has managed to hold his too considering how he feels about the movie!

Awesome! I'm sure there are a lot of details explained in the book that were possibly glossed over in the film. Looking forward to seeing if they explain a little more about the Drift technology. :)

Meh. Nothing special at all.

In all seriousness, it looks like a pretty cool book. I might just pick it up, seeing as I'm a bit too lazy to enter contests.

Okay, since Gusto said something, I will say something. Why is Josh doing this article if he hated the movie?
There, I said it.

Pacific Rim was awesome. I saw it in IMAX 3D, and it rocked the house. I'm going to see it again. Loved it.

Josh is probably the only person I know thought Pacific Rim was worse than Grown Ups 2.
Pacific Rim 71% Fresh
Grown Ups 2 6% fresh
