Great book, nice and insightful.

Good Novelization for Fans

by -

This novel nicely covers the main storyline of NieR:Automata, and fleshes out some parts that were, at best, only barely hinted at in the game itself. For that reason alone, this book is worth reading for fans, as it helps fill in those gaps.

The writing quality is all right for what it is, and the use of 1s and 0s for the letters I and O in the Machines' speech was appropriate. The localization sometimes diverges from the game's script in noticeable ways (for example, the memorable line "This cannot continue" becomes "This is no good" in the novel), which was curious but not too bothersome. There are also a handful of typos, including one or two involving characters' names, and the writing is redundant in a few places. These things weren't deal-breakers for me, but I do hope that the second volume's localization will be better.
