    This was silly and fun and brilliant. Would I have read it in print format? No. But as an Audible dramatisation, it was thrilling. The sound effects were spot on, giving the story an atmosphere and immediacy that I doubt the book would match. There were a few problems with the insertion of the story into the canon. There are very limited ways you can stick a whole episode between films but not have Ripley remember it. Still, it was delicious knowing that all the other characters had to die, but [...]

    I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. It fits in nicely to the main storyline in the films and has some teasers in there also.

    This was a full cast production offered for free at Audible and I enjoyed it! You do need to set aside every movie in this series after the original and that puts some constraints on the author who has to work within those guidelines. I'm not sure this would have worked as well for me in book form as it did in audio. The actress doing Ripley's voice was dead on, and Rutger Hauer as Ash's voice was also perfect. Combined with the sound effects of the various ship functions, this production was a [...]

    Oy, this was fucking righteous. I wish more action/sci fi/horror authors went with this approach to their audiobooks. Yes, there is a need for fully-narrated, unabridged audiobooks. But some of this stuff doesn't need it. Honestly, who's reading Tim Lebbon for the writing? He's an author-for-hire who does some original stuffs from time to time. I know him more from his Alien and Star Wars novels than I do any of his Leisure horror stuffs, like Berserk. I'm not knocking the guy for getting paid. [...]

    Surprisingly engaging and utterly thrilling, this audio dramatisation of an Alien novel is quite superb. I would not have picked this up if not for the freebie being offered by Audible during its 20th Anniversary celebration a few months ago, not even being aware that there are also official canonical novels in this science fiction horror franchise.If you have never watched the movies before, please note that there will be spoilers for the first film, Alien. In my opinion, the second film, Alien [...]

    3.5Thirty-seven years of nightmares, she thought. And now that I’m awake, the nightmare has woken with me.I’m not the type to usually jump on the bandwagon for Sci-fi series, but the Alien series has always been my soft spot. I’ve watched the first two several times, collected the expensive but irresistibly huge DVD box set when it was released, and a few EBay collector items and limited figures. I’ve always wanted to read books on the series – the only thing that’s surprised me is I [...]

    Alien: Out of the Shadows was a fast-paced and action filled book. I love the movies (rewatched Alien yesterday) and I was really looked forward to reading the book. I wasn't sure how they would, or even if they would explain how Ripley could be in this story since it takes place between Alien and Aliens, but they did. Perhaps a bit of an easy solution, but at least they explained it.It was a great read. Perhaps not as terrifying as seeing the movies, but reading some part of the book was just a [...]

    I wanted to like this.Supposedly taking place between the two films, Ellen Ripley is taken out of cryosleep sooner than what was revealed in Aliens 2. We go on another Alien adventure.I place a great store in originality in the books I like and while I knew that this was a series, or tie in, or whatever I thought this may be a new twist on the Alien story. Does not appear to be, DNF at 25%.Lebbon is a good writer and I see many people who enjoyed this, but I could not.

    4 stars for the story, 5 for the Audible production. The performance was excellent, including all the sound effects, particularly the bleeps, the sweeps, and the creeps.

    Okay, wow. Where to begin. This is going to be wordy.I'm first to admit I read some trashy Fantasy/Sci Fi. I'm a sucker for a good sword, spell or space ship. I normally steer far far away from Franchise stuff though, because its usually spitting distance away from fan fiction on the internet. I'm an unabashed fan of (most of) the Scott/Cameron Alien universe though and I can even find some entertainment in the Fincher/Jeunet extensions. We won't talk about the Anderson AvP movies though. I've r [...]

    Okay, after thinking about it for several hours, I decided to raise my rating to 5 stars after originally giving it 4 stars. Maybe 4.5 stars, rounded up?I'm not a fan of Audible's audio dramas at all, and I've tried to listen to quite a few. They leave so much out of the narration, and most of the details necessary for the story are just lost completely . This was definitely NOT the case with Tim Lebbon's Alien: Out of the Shadows.Alien is probably my favorite sci-fi movie series/universe, more [...]

    I listened to this freebie audiobook on Audible. This was one of the best I've listened to as far as production quality goes. The voice actors were amazing. The music and sound effects made it feel like I was listening to a movie. Having said all of that, I didn't think the book itself was amazing but I did enjoy it much more than I thought I would. 3.5 stars.

    I listened to this on audio book. It was one of the best audio books I ever listened to. The production on this was amazing. The voice acting was top class and so was the music and effects. Highly recommended.

    My original ALIEN: OUT OF THE SHADOWS audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.In 2014, Titan Books released the first in a new series of books set in the Alien film franchise under the supervision of the movie studio 20th Century Fox. These novels are considered part of the film canon and help expand and flesh out the movie universe, and they launched with Tim Lebbon’s Alien: Out of the Shadows, set between the first two movies and featuring the series’ heroine, L [...]

    Now this was fun, ludicrous amounts of fun. My first ever audiobook was a full cast drama and from there on single narrators took a lot of adjusting to. This was more along the lines of an old time radio play, full cast and bombastic special effects, sort of like listening to a dynamic dramatically charged action adventure. Short one, just enough for two good walks and, again, great great fun. Enthusiastically recommended.

    This deserves higher marks for production quality. The audio version was very enjoyable. The story however wa average (not bad just average). It did fit nicely within the canon of Alien movies without distracting us with alternate stories or personalities. It was a nice very hours of escapism.

    I am usually leery of any movie novelisations or tie-ins. However, the recent announcement that South African director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) had been given the green light by Fox to film his long-gestating Alien project coincided with my discovery of this Alien novel by Tim Lebbon, a respected fantasy and horror author. (There are two more in what is a loose trilogy, by James A. Moore and Christopher Golden). And being in the mood for a popcorn read, I thought, how bad can it be?T [...]

    Okay, so I’ve read this new Alien series from Titan Books completely arse-about-face. I started with the middle one in the trilogy, James A. Moore’s Sea of Sorrows, and then moved onto the third instalment, Christopher Golden’s River Of Pain. And here I am now reviewing the first in the series, Tim Lebbon’s Out of The Shadows. It doesn’t matter, of course, as while they’re all billed as being somewhat connected, they’re not – each is a self-contained story. In fact, the only thin [...]

    Listened to the full-cast production from Audible, and it was actually pretty darn good. Sound effects were on point too. Listened in my car, and it was pretty damn fun.

    This is just ridiculous! How much better these books can become?!I started reading this series out of the order, mostly because of the Audible's aggressive marketing campaign, but it doesn't really matter. If you like Alien these are all just new sequel/prequel episodes. Each one for itself in the well-interconnected universe.Finally got time to read the leading story in the canonical Alien Trilogy. Was not disappointed!I'm not even going to say anything more. For every Alien fan - this is as go [...]

    I would give this 10 stars if I could. The chick voicing Ripley's character was amazeballs. Had me doing a double take at my speakers, because she really sounded a lot like Sigourney. Even had the same dark comic timing with the quips. Good story. And a truly fantastic cast of characters to act it out. Complete with sound effects, screams, and all the eerie alien atmosphere you love from the Alien franchise. Takes place between the movie Alien, and Aliens. Really well done.

    I haven't watched any of the ALIEN movies nor do I want to. I received a free audio book copy of this during Audibles 25th anniversary. So I gave it a listen.Going in with only a basic idea of the ALIEN universe I found it easy to slip into the story well what little story there was too be had. The writing was very akin to the screenwriting of a major motion picture. Which means it was shallow, dumb, action packed and relied heavily on visual effects. The last was especially strange since this i [...]

    Tim Lebbon had a hard job to do. He had to take a beloved character from an equally admired movie franchise and break into a timeline where audiences have already been told nothing has happened. That's right. James Cameron's Aliens (and one assumes, Alan Dean Foster's novelization also) comes right out and says, "look right here. Nothing. For decades!" He did a great job. Alien: Out of the Shadows is engaging and fun. It is clear he respects the source material and worked hard to write a book th [...]

    Though well-performed by all the cast members, within the limited time frame of events and the intensity of the action and imminent destruction, the format does not allow for the background material that the written word provides. The audio-drama, with its sound effects and the cast's dramatic performances, does capture the feel perfectly, but there’s no time to get to know or care about anyone but Ripley, who quickly takes over as the lead once she’s awakened, leaving Hooper in the dust. Th [...]

    A wonderful imagining of the lost time period between the Alien and Aliens movies. This is part one of a trilogy and I can't wait to read the next. Tim Lebbon really knows his stuff.

    As I finished this story and sat back to reflect on what I have just read, I felt conflicted.The story itself takes place between the Movie 1 and 2 of the original trilogy, which is really cool as it adds an additional adventure between Ripley's stasis sleep and Alien2 beginning. It turns out she was not in stasis the whole time after-all.It is a fun read, but what prevented me to agree with an average 4-star rating is that it took forever to pull me in. Half Way through to be exact. The first h [...]

    I should begin with a full disclaimer: I'm a massive fan of the Aliens universe. From James Cameron's stunning sequel in 1986 all the way through to that massive turd of a game, Colonial Marines, released last year, if it features any of H.R. Giger's monstrosities from parts unknown, you can bet I was there with money in hand, wanting to be thrilled all over again.So when I heard a new set of novels that were to be considered canon were to be released, I was more than interested. Learning that r [...]

    That was epic!!I really enjoyed the effects they made in Audible!! it was like hearing a movie :D
