When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, rise from the sea, a war begins that will take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon is 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 wanted to make not a war movie, but an adventure movie, with a huge, romantic sense of adventure, a sense of grandeur, and operatic battles...."

great adaptation! The story itself is better than the film. On its own its an awesome listen if you're a fan of the genre!

All I wanted and more.
If you could sum up Pacific Rim in three words, what would they be?
Pacific Rim The Movie was a dream made real for a person like me, a fan of Asian monster movies and Manga mecha cartoons. No spoilers here.The story is simple, linear and breathtaking, with a wealth of detail and action that make it an unforgivable experience.
What other book might you compare Pacific Rim to and why?
Starship Troopers, mostly for the pace, action and sci-fi, high power military environment.
Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel and Jay Snyder ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I don’t have much experience with audible book so I can say it was adequate but a tad bit irritating when the male actor changes his voice to mimic a female voice, that aside, all in all was a good performance.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, more than once.
Any additional comments?
The book is similar but with more details and a flashed out the world of Pacific Rim with some extra facts that help you expanding your movie experience.Even for a person who did not see the movie I feel this will be a great opportunity to enjoy a thrilling story with good characters and awesome action.
