Here, even the wind screams. Abandoned hulks of machinery rust in the colorless landscape. Dark, oily seas beat against a jagged black shore. And the remnants of a reentry space vehicle crash into the rough waves. In it sleeps Ripley, a woman who has battled the enemy twice. It killed her whole crew the first time. The second time, it slaughtered a spaceload of death-dealing Marines.Now on this prison planet that houses only a horde of defiant, captive men, she will have to fight the ultimate alien horror one more time.More

Not Bad For A Human...
- Isaac Oden
The audiobook was much better than the film.
Underappreciated, well-written, excellent
I enjoyed the setting and the conflict established. By placing the protagonoist (Ripley) on a new world, surrounded by prisioners (all male), and with no weapons it created an interesting delima in dealing with the Alien akin to the first film. The survivors are then forced to work together and use their surroundings to take on the Alien.
This is one of my favorite audio books because of Mr. Henriksen's performance. It was nice to have an Alien alum perform the book in the first place, but I felt he did a good job. Some of his different character's voices are poorly done, but was able to forgive it because of the overall performance.
There wasn't a particularly "moving" part of a survival-horror/sci-fi tale.
I first listened to this audiobook on a two cassette tape set that I had for years. I have always like the story of Alien 3 and feel that the "original cut" of the film didn't do it justice. The novilization filled in a lot of holes and created a more complete story. As a fan of the franchise I would say this is my second favorite Alien story behind the second film. I would recommend a listen to anyone who may not have really enjoyed the film but would like a better "telling" of the story.
