I've seen the movie and usually read the novels of movies I've seen to find out what changes were made or cut that could of made the story slightly different. In a way this novel plays out a lot like the movie and I'm not even completely done yet. There are lots of added dialogue and scenes that would of made the characters more enjoyable and not wasted like the film variant.
However the performance was rather dull almost flat. This would of helped with music or some sound effects to really feel like you're in a sci-fi horror genre but alas nothing.
Really disappointed since I can finish these in a day or two but this book has taken me now a week to listen and hard to finish.

Would you listen to Alien: Covenant again? Why?
I've already listened to this story twice to make sure the audio gaps was not my imagination. It wasn't.
Any additional comments?
Shame on the producer for not hearing the errors before this went live.

Having been slightly disappointed by the rushed feel of the movie which seemed purely driven by visceral delights this brilliantly narrated and written audio book reedresses the balance to show just how brilliant the film might have been. I would highly recommend the audio book as the perfect companion. I would also add that it stands tall on its own merits. In short - Brilliant!

After seeing the film twice and liking it much better the second time and understanding it better I couldn't wait for the book to come out knowing it would have more detail in there and I wasn't disappointed.
The book is eloquently written and it really did help me understand the pitfalls of the film much better, the book drew up as much suspense as the film and like a good book I couldn't put it down... or stop listening...
Narrated well I thought, some narrators leave you with a dull thumping headache but Tom Taylorson does it justice.
I just hope the saga continues....

How could the performance have been better?
Hahahah, the narrator needs to stop trying to do female voices, especially when the female is "shouting"... I honestly laughed out loud every single time he did a shouting female voice.... at least it was entertaining (although not in the good way haha)><br/>Otherwise, his narration was good.

Suspenseful, thrilling, a horrific and utterly enticing story filled with symbolism and life sought questions
