Once again, I entered the world of Machiko Noguchi, the aliens and the predators. I had high expectations of this novel after reading the first two classics.
I instantly noticed that this book is set before hunter's planet, therefore any questions I had about the previous novel were sure to be answered. And they were.
However, I found that at points the story line was quite complicated and I often found myself losing interest.
Nonetheless, this book probably had some of the best descriptive writing out of them all as it goes about portraying the mind of a mad man.
There were many parts of the story that reminded me of the splendour of the old books, like Machiko Noguchi in being a very strong, cool character and there are a few traces of humour in this book, but not as much as the originals.
I have to say that on the whole, this book was a little disappointing considering how much I enjoyed its' predecessors. I found that the same old story was being used. The predators fight the aliens and the humans get in the way and get killed themselves, therefore leading to a small group of heroes saving the day. This story line was excellent the first time, good the second, but a bit old the third time round.
Finally, the most annoying thing about this book is that it explains that a certain predator was killed in one way in this book and then a different way in hunter's planet. Call me crazy, but I think that is a little confusing.
I will probably read this book again to try and get a clearer understanding of why this predator died twice.

I used to love these books when I was a kid. Upon reading them now I begin to wonder where the brilliance is that I originally saw. Maybe now that I'm older and a bit more refined pulp like this doesn't appeal to me much anymore. Still, there's a couple of interesting bits in this book. But not much.

I've never read the graphic novel on which it's based and it also seems to be a continuation from an Aliens graphic novel too as characters introduced at the beginning seem to have quite a bit of back-story.

Nothing really happens in this. Almost all of the pages are filled with a build-up to a big fight that never really happens. It just kinda fizzles out. No big epic battle, no big plot twist. No reason to read it really. It is, however, better than the wanton AvP movies (which are still better than Prometheus - brick in the face is better than that).

Pick this up only at a charity shop.

I liked this book, after getting Prey a few years back Ive been desperatly searching for more AvP books as they are out of print here in the UK.
This time the story focuses on the human side of the struggle, it flips from Noguchi to the three bug hunters that are held captave on Bunda, I liked this idea, but it would have been good to see some more of the Predator's perspective as it was so brilliantly pulled off in Prey.
Overall though, the book is good, I really got attached to Machiko Noguchi and her struggle for humanity, at times I felt sorry for her. However, the predators came off as quite cruel creatures, they wern't explained enough in this one.
The human side definatly shines in this book and its recommended for any AvP/Aliens/Predator fan.
4/5

As a collector of the original DHP comic series, I'd accidentally purchased this mini storybook, and to a degree, found it quite enjoyable. Personally, I prefer comics, and so this was something different. Not quite a fully-scale storybook, and definitely not a comic but somewhere in between...minus the cartoon pictures.

Once read, I don't feel an automatic compulsion to re-read it again any time soon.

Give me a comic anytime, so that I can enjoy the art in the artwork, and then the story!

Many people have only known about this book since the films. I read it when I was in school long before Alien V Predator was even penned. And this book delivers so much more! Everthing you could want is included. Blood, gore, suspense, interesting characters you feel involved in, and a structure that makes you feel like you're with the Predators throughout.
Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Despite the timeline between the 3 avp book in this series being jumbled it was a great read a bit short but enjoyable none the less. After reading i had to find a copy of the very rare berserker novel as it is the prequel to the book from the other main character point of view. I got a new copy for less than a fiver to complete my collection well worth it.
