    Buyer Beware!

    Barnes and Noble sold me this book online. However it's not readable online. Unless I'm missing something there is no warning when a book is not readable online. And of course there are no refunds for NOOK books. So they have my money! But I can't read my book until some unknown point in the future.

    If you're a fan of the Alien franchise, you must own this. Lebbon does an admirable job of capturing the fear and emotion from the original Alien movies, and there's no shortage of page turning action.

    I love to read and one of my favorite genres is science fiction. I could not stop reading this book; I had to know what happens next! Ripley is such a great character and I'm glad she's in this series. This book had great action and surprises. I'm excited for the next two books. Definitely worth reading if you're a fan of xenomorphs and life in space.

    Amazing

    Alien has been my favorite Sci-Fi universe since I was younger and saw the first film. I was more than ecstatic when I saw that there was new content being released. Amazing read, could use a bit more tension but nonetheless, if you even remotely like Alien, then this book is a must read. I absolutely cannot wait for the next two books in this series.

    Yep, I'd say you're missing something. How about the fact that it's called a "Nook Book"? Thats pretty much a dead give away. Give them MORE of your money, buy a Nook HD, (my personal recommendation), and that "unknown point in the future" will be here before you know it!

    Alien Fans will enjoy

    I have been a fan of the Alien movies since the first release. I was excited to read a novel based on the movies. Read this quickly as it is like the script of an Alien movie. Can't wait to continue the series. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

    The Saga continues!!

    I loved this book. It was a slightly different story after Ripley escaped the first time. It's fast passed and exciting. Highly recommended if you're an ALIEN fan.

    So when does the movie come out? Bottom line up front: I really enjoyed this book. The opening alone… I just could not put it down and stop reading. I had to read what happens next; I had to get to the next page and the following page… and the one after. I had to see how it ended! This book was well done. You can see elements of the original film with a small bit of Prometheus and then a touch of Aliens. I will not say anymore because I would hate to spoil it for anyone. Read it and you will see what I am so excited about! I cannot wait for the next two books in the series to hit the shelves.

    I still remember seeing the movie back in 1979 at the local mall and been a fan ever since. I enjoyed the book and was happy how the book managed to explain the tie in from the original film. Looking forward to book 2 and 3.

    Looks like a good read

    Looks sweet; sounds like it may be connected to the upcoming game Alien: Isolation.
