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.

Horrible story and ruined the Ripley character

What disappointed you about Alien: Out of the Shadows?

The Ripley character which has always been strong was simply weak in this book. The Hooper character was annoying and unlikable. The Aliens played a very little role in this.


What could Tim Lebbon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have simply excluded the Ripley character and make up a different new person and the story would have been a little better.


What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good narrator.


What character would you cut from Alien: Out of the Shadows?

Hooper and Ripley. Hooper was an ass and Ripley was not protrayed as she should be.


Any additional comments?

I regret buying this book.

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.
