Now we have this book which re-imagined the conflict between King Kong and Godzilla, but being called "Gigantosaurus" for again copyright reasons.
I love how this book mixes elements of the original 1933 "King Kong" and the Japanese 1962 film adding one kick ass Ninja JDF Captain Yuriko Kumage instead of typical 1930's girl in danger Ann Darrow. I truly enjoyed this work, but have one warning for readers: The Translation is terrible and I don't know if I could stand one more "but Alas" at critical moments. Also pertaining to the translation there were several words this 66 year old was unfamiliar with, but still seemed familiar somehow. It turned out that when I asked for a dictionary definition they were all 17th Century Versions of current English words.Apparently the book was written by an American in Japanese and translated back into English.
However, bottom line is return to a new version of Skull Island while Australia is being attacked by a creature that is out of its own evolutionary track standing approximately 270 feet tall.
Now, moving on to the gratuitous use of the descriptive phrase "her gorgeous bowl shaped eyes". If there is a joke to be made here (except on me), I'm not seeing it. By about page forty-five I wanted to chuck the book in the fire place because of the ridiculous over use of that phrase.
My advice to Alan Colosi is to pick up Stephen King's book "On Writing" and treat it like gold.
