Solid Snake is a soldier and part of a worldwide nanotechnology network known as the Sons of the Patriots. Time is running out for Snake though, as he will soon succumb to the FOXDIE virus, but not before spreading the disease to nearly everyone he encounters, in essence becoming a walking biological weapon. Snake will need every advantage he can get, as the SOP network is about to be hacked by his old enemy Liquid Ocelot, and whoever controls SOP controls the world.

Metal Gear Solid
Great book just like the ps3 game just a bit different I have read the other two and liked them too I totally recommend this to all MGS fans
A great novelization, worth every penny i spent. Best game series ever translated into an amazing book.
Must read if you're a fan
I read the original Japanese ver. Of this novel keikaku truly understands the metal gear world and Kojima kantoku himself admitted that no one else comes close to understanding his work as keikaku did. The story is told through otakons eyes and it is a little different from the game. Example is BB unit isn't mention solid snake (old snake) fate is a little different but it does have a great story.
If you are a true fan of this series it's a must read.
Oh and by the way Kojima kantoku did say he has plans to make metal gear solid snake eater as a novel and already selected a new author for the novel.
