Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in our control and not the other way around. Let them fight.
Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: This thing is much too big to be some lost dinosaur.
“Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” Lovecraft would have loved this. Nemesis is Godzilla, Cthulhu, and “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” all rolled into one - Destroyer God and sad victim not only of fate but of a rich, obsessive, vicious man. “Nemesis” is a monster, true. A monster created by science, at the behest of a human even more monstrous than Nemesis herself.
Of course, back when King Kong and Godzilla came to life, “The Bomb” was our greatest fear. Immense power, horrific death from the skies – the perfect structure for tales of horror. Now, Nemesis waltzes onto the stage, filled with fear, pain, and a deep need for answers. Even monsters need answers, and Nemesis more than most. For all she is a monster, possibly a God, she is lost, searching. But her search can kill millions. Of course, the military is shooting off all its toys, twelve AMRAAM and four Tomahawks have only succeeded in killing civilians so far – and Boston is her next stop. Which is worse? A terrified military blasting away, or a giant beast storming across the land? “Hulk SMASH!”
I got a huge kick out of this story. Narrated by Jeffrey Kafer, the story is a high octane tribute to all the 50’s monster movies we know and love.Read more ›
But that's a mistake at the very end of the book and does nothing to ruin the action, suspense, and horror of a good modern version of a Kaiju story.
I was curious on how someone could tackle a Kaiju type story as a book, so I decided to check it out.
I found the Hudson character tough to like as a person at first, but he did grow on me as the story went on, especially whenever he got down to business. The switching from first person to third person perspective was jarring for the first little bit. I also found a lot of the metaphors and similes to seem extra forced, especially when coming from Hudson's perspective. They were spaced out enough that it didn't overly annoy me, but I did roll my eyes at some sentences.
That being said, I thought the conflicts were fantastic. All of the monster attacks were as entertaining as they were cruel. The evolution of the monster was super intriguing. This book went from "pretty good" into "really great" in the last half. I'm definitely eager for more.

Excellently crafted story, and I loved the pacing; it flowed quickly but hardly felt rushed. There were a few plot holes in the story, but they were minor and didn't detract too... Read morePublished 15 months ago by C.M.W. Hawkins
Gojira is only four years older than I am so I pretty much grew up watching him and all his kaiju friends destroy Tokyo on screen over and over, but I had never read a kaiju novel. Read morePublished on July 19 2013 by Ginette Cyr
