The creators of The Matrix have been extremely careful in deciding who gets to put the Matrix logo on their products. This cautious approach is appreciated by the film's fans, but it has led to only 3 official Matrix books produced by (or with the cooperation of) the Wachowski Brothers.
You won't find "the official novelization", or storybooks, or continuations of the movie's plot here. What you will find though, is a burgeoning genre of collections that discuss the ideas presented in the movie. The Matrix's rich, multi-layered storyline gives authors of all disciplines plenty of material to work with, and following the links above will take to you to books that discuss the philosophical and religious symbolism in the movie.
You'll also find revealing essays written by some of the pre-eminent science fiction authors today. Lastly, we'll show you a couple of the books that inspired some of the ideas in The Matrix (to such a degree that the Wachowski Brothers gave these books to cast members to read before they began working on The Matrix).
Go deeper into each book by following the sub-links above.
