  • I love the Alien films so I was very happy when my boyfriend found this at a car boot last weekend Obviously, I already knew I liked the stories, and Ellen Ripley is probably my all time favourite movie character, but I was hoping for a bit info background on the plot and characters There really isn t much outside what happens in the films Extra scenes and conversations are few and far between, and I wasn t impressed with the bits that are added We do get to find out what Ripley is thinking, an [...]


  • I m a huge fan of the Alien franchise and since I ve watched all the movies several times over I didn t really feel like reading this book However fate would have it that I borrow this book from a friend and get into it and boy am I ever glad I did.This trilogy is heaps better than the movies because it goes into details that probably wouldn t have worked on screen If you re a fan of the franchise pick this up now, if not this is still a very decent read and comes highly recommended.


  • The nostalgia Although there were obviously differences between the book and the film they were very small and slight differences and I still really enjoyed reading the book as this series was a favourite of mine.


  • Okay this is a going to be a completely short review because I generally don t have much to say about this book All I m saying is that I definitely prefer the movie to it, and I am not just referring to Alien, I mean the whole three books that are contained in this volume.I think that because I felt the movie versions were a far superior and effective medium, the books kind of fell flat in pretty much everything Don t get me wrong, I have nothing against Alan Dean Foster s writing I thought it [...]


  • A book which has caused me to say I really liked Alien 3, when I get confused between the novelisation and the film A lot goes on in the book that left me disappointed when I finally saw the film I actually read this omnibus when I was 13 or 14, before I saw any of the films I still get confused though The pictures this book created in my mind were very vividSomeone else in these reviews described it as the directors cut of the films That s an excellent way of putting it.


  • While not a bad book at all, I d still recommend the films over this one any day Maybe except for Alien3.They are fairly well written, all of them, but there s also a lot of odd pieces Like the Alien and the facehugger from the first novel film having a visible big eye.If you ve enjoyed the films, then please, by all means read this, but don t expect it to be better, just different.


  • Alien, Aliens and Alien3 the original trilogy of movies rendered into words Just as scary, just as exciting, just as visceral and just the kind of thing that made us want and of these cute, cuddly aliens Excellence in print.


  • Great read, written in a good style, very close to the movies Interesting enough, I like the third book a lot better than the third movie, which tells me, it s not the story that bugs me, it s the filming I always have a hard time with the third movie.




  • Alan Dean Foster s novelisation of the first three movies is brilliant You wouldn t expect much, but he slips in the kind of extraneous details that film is never able to express.
