Alien: The Official Movie Novelization 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.
Bookworm1951 More than 1 year ago
Enjoyable and fast paced. Slightly different than the movie which struck me as odd since this was the official movie tie-in and the book was published 35 yrs. after the movie. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because nowhere in the book does the author describe the adult version of the alien. Since the movie came out in 1979, most everyone has already seen it and we have that preconceived notion of how the alien looked and acted. Those details are missing in this book. So, if you hadn't seen the movie, it's lacking in the most important details of the story. If you enjoyed the movie, you will like the book overall. It does give you some deeper insight into the human characters and their relationships with each other.

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.

The pacing of the movie didn't translate well when stretched to a book that takes several times as long to get through. It's apparent that the book was written before the film was complete and while it's interesting to note the resulting differences (the alien has eyes for instance) there's a frustrating lack of detail, and in general Foster seems to have underestimated how terrifying the finished movie would turn out.
