Publisher's Summary

As a child Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.
When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating - and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors....
Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

A very good listen.

I don't usually write reviews, I normally just rate them, but this book was so unexpectedly different from what I thought it would be, I had to write.
I expected the book to be the same story from all the other books or movies, with different words and character names, but I was very surprised. The book was very good, I didn't want to pause it when I had to, and I stayed up until 6am just to finish it. If you like the Alien stuff, or Sci-fi stuff, I definitely recommend giving this book a go, my personal opinion was, it was very good, and very much worth the credit. Oh, and I hope you enjoy Alien: Out of the Shadows as much as I did.

A Serviceable Aliens Story

I wasn't thrilled with "Alien: Out of the Shadows: Book 1" overall, but there's a lot that I liked about it.

The narrator is great. His voice seemed perfectly suited for the subject matter, and he performed a number of recognizable, credible male and female Voices. Jeff Harding's contribution is the highlight of the production.

Also, it's well-written. It's a testament to Lebbon's skill as an author that he's able to make the actual writing almost an afterthought--the writing is unobtrusive and serves the story perfectly.

However, I didn't find the story all that exciting. Lebbon knows how to write action, but there's quite a bit of downtime that never is as suspenseful as it could or should be.

Lastly, although I suspect it might have been a decision outside of the author's hands, I think the addition of movie characters Ripley and Ash into this story was particularly unfortunate, as I never believed that these canonical characters would be in any way changed by the time the story was through. But hey--no spoilers--maybe it turned out that I was wrong,.

Decent. But has issues.

The story is good, however I feel certain character parts were not necessarily needed.
I will not go into to detail for the benefit of spoilers.
Having said that I did enjoy the book hence the four stars.
