    Returned to Earth, Ellen Ripley learns that a colony has been established on LV-426, the planet where the crew of the Nostromo found the original Alien. But contact with the colonists has been lost, so she must accompany a unit of colonial marines to discover their fate. And to destroy any Aliens found on the planet known as Acheron. This is a groundbreaking sequel by science fiction legend Alan Dean Foster, with the wonderful characters and rapid-fire action that make Aliens one of the greatest science fiction films of all time.

    Game Over, Man....

    The first novelization, 'Alien' was excellent, but this version falls short. Here's why:

    Fury 161 is a wretched planet - a penal colony and an industrial complex manned by violent prisoners.

Then inmates begin to die, all at the hands of another survivor - a creature which encounters Ripley and spares her life! Desperate to know why, she seeks out an answer - and discovers terror unlike any she's ever known.

    Brilliant work, yet again

    This is the movie I did not remember as well as the first two. I know I have seen it at some point but after listening to the first three books, now I..Show More »

    Ripley is More Alien Than The Xenomorphs

    This is the most unique installment of the series. I always thought that the most alien thing in the movie was Sigourney Weaver’s resurrected Ripley c..Show More »
