Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Foster’s treatment of the source material has only enhanced my appreciation for this classic story." - Blogcritics

"The book was well written, it filled in a few gaps in the film that I didn’t know needed to be filled until I read them, and it put the film in a different context, which may color my next viewing.  If you consider yourself a fan of the film, it’s worth checking out." - Top Hat Sasquatch 

"A hell of a fun and terrifying read. It’s one I recommend to anyone who loves the film or a good old fashioned sci-fi romp through the hell in our stars." - Ravenous Monster 

“In text form the primal dread conjured by its events and themes is as timeless as the cold and empty darkness from which it spreads. 9/10.” - Starburst

“The official novelization is a stroll-back to memory lane of sweat inducing horrors.” – Retrenders

"The official novelization is a stroll-back to memory lane of sweat inducing horrors." - Retrenders

“An open door to the ALIENS universe that offers the curious even more information about the dangerous world of the films.” Suvudu

Worthy to be on your shelf if you consider yourself a fan of the film.” Retroist

"Manages to capture the emotion and terror of the film." - Geek Girl Project

"As timeless as the movie that spawned it" - Den of Geek

    Awesome

    Really enjoyed this book. Reading it lends so much more understanding than the movie gives, also there are somevdifferences which make it so intetesting. I also liked the way the characters were portrayed. Much different than the movie. Much better in my opinion.
