Description

Lebbon’s prose work has been stripped away, although the story and dialogue, with a bit of finessing for this dramatization, remain intact and is lovingly crafted in a highly cinematic experience for the mind. For a while I wondered if this was a "what if" story and it sort of is but the author did a great job smoothing out the ending. Lebbon gives you enough character development and world-building without going overboard (fans of the movies will need little anyhow) and the pacing is excellent.

Leaving the Alien on board the Marion, the remaining survivors — Hoop, Ripley, Sneddon, Baxter, Kasyanov and Lachance — fly below to LV-178 in the Samson and enter the mine. The novel is the first in a new trilogy that ties into the events of the Alien films, although the subsequent books will not be penned by Lebbon, but by two other authors — James A. I was sceptical of this at first, but let me tell you that this was one of the best stories I've read/heard in recent memory that's set in the Alien universe. The horseshoe-shaped vessel is of particular interest to Weyland-Yutani, and may be the answer to their dreams. Subsequent sequels tended to focus on a single element at the expense of all the others: action in Aliens, martyrdom in Alien 3, and who knows what-the-fuck in Alien Resurrection.Cast members include Matthew Lewis, Laurel Lefkow, Corey Johnson, Rutger Hauer, Kathryn Drysdale and Andrea Deck. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell — and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. Ripley soon learns about the Aliens trapped in the dropship in the hangar and works out that Ash has infiltrated the computer of her ship. In the audio drama, he discovers it while the group is still in the mines; in the novel, he does not find out until they are back on the Marion. Das Einzige, was nervt, waren die Dialoge, die im Angesicht der extremen Gefahr, die dann mir eindeutig zu oft albern statt cool vorkamen.

Chris 'Hoop' Hooper is the ship's head engineer and has much on his mind, not least of which is his self-enforced estrangement from his wife and children. I enjoyed this, I've never had much faith in spin-offs until now; I want to read every Alien book I can get my hands on after this. This book had the potential to be very interesting as new discoveries about the aliens were revealed but none of these were explored fully. I actually just reduced my rating from 2 starts down to 1 after writing that and getting even more pissed off.Titan Books will use the information you provide on this form to be in touch with you and to provide updates and marketing. Set after the events of the first Alien movie, the story takes place on a mining ship and on the mining colony below where the miners have discovered something deep underground. Enjoyed the story throughout, although the whole time I wondered how the author would bridge the story with the canonical beginning of Aliens.

With high drama and non-stop suspense, Alien: Out of the Shadows is a quick read and a must have for fans of the Alien franchise. My original ALIEN: OUT OF THE SHADOWS audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer. If you have never watched the movies before, please note that there will be spoilers for the first film, Alien. Even though I was only listening to the book, I literally cringed during some of the more violent and gory moments.The massively acclaimed Alien franchise is one of the most successful of all time, beginning with the first film in 1979.
