Fan freaking tastic story

I really like that I have not seen this movies in such a long time. The books made the stories come back to life for me. Not only that but also brought to focus many things that I may not have noticed while just watching the movie. Yet again, the book out does the movie, and this is a novelization!

For book four, Ripley is dealing with something completely different. They have cloned her (how they got her out of lava from book three is not really talked about, but somehow they were able to) and they also cloned her alien baby. OF COURSE THEY DID! I mean why not clone this horrific alien that eats people, bleeds and spits acid, and can survive the apocalypse like huge, carnivorous cockroaches? Makes sense to me! Well, they do and it's Ripley that is left with the implications of having to choose between races.

I loved being able to hear the alien's thoughts. The narration and audio did a fantastic job of bringing this hive like creature to life. I talk about cockroaches but in reality, it's like they are bees. Carnivorous bees that want to do a lot more than just pollinate flowers! It was amazing getting a feel for who they were and how they thought. I did not know until the very end which way Ripley would choose. The narration just made it all the more intriguing to listen to.

I would definitely recommend listening to this. The narration by William Hope is incredible. And, although I would have loved to hear it with a full cast, the story and the narrator really leads this into a great direction. Fans will love this even more than the already fantastic movies. The voices were easily discernible, even when they are in terror, or like when another android goes on the fritz. I loved listening to that portion, although it did freak me out a little!

In short: Fan freaking tastic story. Even better than the movies.

Ripley is More Alien Than The Xenomorphs

This is the most unique installment of the series. I always thought that the most alien thing in the movie was Sigourney Weaver’s resurrected Ripley character. This A.C. Crispin novelization is faithful to the director’s cut of the movie and gives much more detail than any of the other novelizations.

William Hope must have had fun performing this book because his performance is wonderfully engaging and dramatic.
