Warner Bros. and Legendary, like many other major big budget studios, have expanded upon their marketing for the Monsterverse by selling several books based off of these movies around their release. Godzilla 2014, Kong Skull Island, and Godzilla KotM have all been released along with official novelizations, graphic novels, and art books, with new ones being made for Godzilla vs Kong. 

So, I'm just curious as to which of these books are actual good reads. For those who have read at least some of these, which ones would you say are worth the time (and potentially the money). The only MonsterVerse book I have read so far is the Godzilla 2014 art book (which I thoroughly enjoyed). 

"What’s so great about discovery? It’s a violent, penetrative act that scars what it explores. What you call discovery, I call the rape of the natural world."

— Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park (1993)

The KOTM artbook is great. Godzilla: Aftershock is alright, I suppose.

The KOTM novelization is a mixed bag, in my opinion. On the one hand, it offers a greater insight into the minds of the characters (which is always a highlight of novelizations, IMO), and adds a few additional scenes and even a few new Titans. But on the other hand, the fight scenes felt kind of skimpy to me, even more so than the film proper.

A true fan can acknowledge the bad while still appreciating and cherishing the good.

I personally haven't found the comics that great but both novelizations are better than their movie counterparts. KoTM is the stronger of the 2 imo as it's more an expansion on the story and characters whereas 2014 has a lot of differences with the film.


I am somewhat biased though as I was a fan of the author Greg Keyes due to his work with the star wars njo series.

The only four I don’t have is the graphic novel for KOTM and KSI, and the art of making for Kong:Skull Island and Godzilla (2014) but the rest are really good, in my opinion.

Don’t cry, you are perfect

really only read awakening, aftershock and KOM novelization as an audiobook. I am a big fanboy so there all enjoyable for me however the comics expand the Monsterverse, and with aftershock you learn why the big G is the last of his kind. With the novelization of KOM you get glimpses of just what happened with some of the monarch containment facilities, and given its a audio book you can listen to it well doing other stuff.

KingSalomonMMIV, if you're interested in ebooks, and such sections and genres like fiction, fantasy I can recommend to you this pdf books free database, which I use every single time, when I go on vacation and need to download some e-books from there. Recently owner of that website made downloading process absolutely free, isn't it great?..

The King of the Monsters

Of the graphic novels, I'd personally say Birth of Kong is the best. I really enjoyed it and would consider it worth reading.

I read somewhere that there is a website with reviews of such books and film reviews. I could only find but I think you will find descriptions there too which are not spoilers and briefly give good insights and exciting effects scenarios. I used to like sci-fi and lately have moved smoothly from movies back to books where the shots and moments from the movies are described in more detail. I like reading more and I think it depends on my mood.

I haven't read any of them, but if you want to see into the loor than you should probably read them. I hear they're good.

Good recommendation!
