A solid prequel written by the co-screenwriter of the film. Particularly nice is the Introduction by Beacham which gives a bit of history on the development of Pacific Rim. Some nice illustrations in here as well. Not much going on here really, just sort of a tease for the film. Sets-up some back-story and whatnot (most of which will probably be explained in the film anyway).
Not an entirely necessary prequel, but an enjoyable one nonetheless, especially for those of us who are so excited for the film that we need to devour anything and everything that is even mildly related to it. This just makes me want the film even more. In the words of Goodreads' own definition for the 2-star rating: "it was ok".
