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.

This time it's more
Definitely one of the better ones. I read the book many years ago and was delighted to see it being released in audio book form.
Alien obviously because it has the same writer and is the first part of the story.
I'd not heard William Hope (AKA Gorman in the movie) before and was pleasantly surprised by the tone and pace he reads at.
Ummm... this time it's war? :)
A great book. My only real disappointment is that the language seems to have been sanitised. I'm not a prude and can accept bad language in context but the fact that a line like "F**k that" has been replaced with "Forget that" gets quite distracting over time. A bad decision by whoever made it. It's an 18 rated movie/story and removing that language is as laughable as the ITV late 1980s dub. It's a small point but I do find that marines fearing imminent death would probably lose their composure and swear.
Stop your grinnin and drop your linen!
I read these books as a an Alien series obsessive child and was overjoyed to see they have burst through some poor unsuspecting victims chest and on to Audible.
Alien, Aliens and Alien 3 are all worth a listen for fans of the films as they do then justice and then some. Acid for blood what is not to love. A nice touch is that the narrator is the actor that plays Gorman from the Aliens Film and he is extremely effective.
