Book Review: ‘500 Godzilla Facts’ by James Egan

Well, this small book is just a collection of facts. So the title isn’t misleading or anything but this is basically just a long list organized into a book format with a section for each film and an area for general facts that don’t specifically fit with one movie.

I guess this is informative for those who might not know anything about Godzilla but this is mostly common knowledge stuff that avid fans will already know.

Additionally, this is written like it was ripped from a middle schooler’s notebook. Plus, some “facts” are more like opinions of the author or what he deems as the opinion of the consensus.

It’s free on Kindle Unlimited, so I guess I can’t really bitch about the investment. Although, I did opt out to buy a physical copy because it was so cheap and I have a nice kaiju/tokusatsu book library.

I guess I can’t really say it was a big waste of time either, as I read the thing in about a half hour.

Rating: 5/10
Pairs well with: other books about the Godzilla franchise, many of which I reviewed with higher praise than this one.
