So I just finished Alien: Out of the Shadows. Has anyone picked it up yet? What do ya guys think?
Personally, I liked it. I have a few general criticisms but that's only natural with a franchise I hold so close to my heart. I'm not quite sure what kind of sales they were projecting, but I work at a Barnes and Noble in the Midwest and we only recieved three to put on the shelves. I was very pleased however, that all three copies sold within the first week, and we ordered four more in. I'm glad to see that there is still an interest in Aliens out there.
Also, should probably take it easy on the spoilers, even though ALIENS is pretty much a spoiler in itself lol
So you read the book ?
How much did you like it ?
Does fit in with the movies ?
It was good. The aliens are presented as smart and viscious. I felt like Ripley was kind of just something to draw in audiences. She didn't seem entirely necessary. It was pretty congruent with canon though, and I'd definitely reccommend it.
