Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

If this has been an original novel, and the movie came from it, then it would have been a five star easy Since it s a novelization of an existing movie that s superior, it gets a three star rating for different reasons.First, the story most of us know and love is great written down Reading it, I env...

Alex ☣ Deranged KittyCat ☣

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

1.5 starsThe second movie is my least favorite out of the Alien franchise And the novelization goes along with it.Ripley is rescued after the events in the previous book, and nobody believes her story or if they do, they do their best to discredit her Moreover, LV 426, the planet on which Ripley s c...

Tosh

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

Is this going to be a stand up fight, sir, or another bug hunt Not as good as the movie, though it stayed very close to the script Some of the dialogues were lengthy, a few scenes were added, and the foul language was cut out Also, missing Bishop s knife trick, and didn t quite capture Huds...

Hollowman

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

A serviceable novelization of the screenplay but with little else to offer And for whatever reason, all profanity was removed from the dialogue, which made it feel kind of sanitized and weak This was most evident in the climax with Ripley s famous line Get away from her, you bitch Somehow changing t...

Andrew

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

Back in the 80s and 90s it seemed that so many films were being turned in to novelisations sometimes to my amusement even when they started out as books themselves for example Piers Anthony s Total Recall retelling the Philip K Dick short story And it seems that Mr Alan Dean Foster was at the forefr...

Jules G

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

I don t remember the first time I read this book or when I purchased it, but it s one of those novels that you hold onto from childhood and the teenage years The cover is lost along with the summary page, but it still retains the title page Like a worn stuffed animal, the tattered and well read rema...

Anjali

Aliens By Alan Dean Foster

I ve been a fan of the Alien series of films for a long time, though this is the first time I ve read a book based on the series.I enjoyed reading this book because it does something that I find most tie in books do it added something extra to the story with little snippets of information tha...
