Epic Book is Epic

by nickmamatas

I got the advance copies of Mardock Scramble today and oh boy, is she a big book. See?

Hmm, maybe it’s a little hard to tell how big a 784 page paperback is. Here she is, side by side with Battle Royale:

Lookin’ a little skimpy there at only 614 pages, BR!

Or to put it yet another way, Mardock Scramble is the size of four copies of All You Need Is KILL:

It’s big I tell you. Go clear a space on your bookshelves for this one. You’ll need it. If you buy five copies, you can make a sofa out of them!

    And the sofa would still be better quality than Ikea!

    wowzers, that big! now I heard somewhere that mardock scramble is part of a series. It was an interview with the author at the new york anime festival I think. I even saw on ubukata’s (japanese-language) site something that said ‘mardock velocity’ but since it was japanese I couldn’t make out what it said.

    any reply is welcome. thanks alot and keep the awesomeness coming:)

    Indeed, there is another three-book series called MARDOCK VELOCITY. There are also a couple of novelettes (long short stories) in the same Mardock City setting that you should keep an eye out for!
