This book however is a total breath of fresh air..I found the writing style brilliant, it was the reason I consumed this book faster than any of the other Aliens books Ive read, The stories and characters are excellent and although they may lean a little on charachters from previous books or movies are sufficiently different enough. Just one thing that nagged me...I personally found too much effort in the explanations of the gore...its really not neccesary and at times is just cheap and stands out from the grounded plausible storytelling hurting it a little in my opinion...you will know the parts I mean when you read them..but essentially Shirley has written such a gripping story that the level of the gore is uneccesary.
If you like the franchise, and are looking for a saga save after the woeful Alien Ressurection and AvPs..this will fill your stomach and some of the void until the Ridley Scott movie starts to begin its hype train journey.
The language is detailed without being clinical and the author goes a long way to answer several unanswered questions giving interesting views on the growth speed of Aliens and space travel.
There is such a great sense of realism to the novel with next-gen Nasa racing against the Chinese in space, that the plot really sucked me in!
I agree with other reviews that if it's action you want, titles such as Earth Hive will be much better for you, but if your open minded to the author's theories and opinions and like a slower pace sci-fi/movie book, this is money well spent.
good descriptive language
lots of imagination
some of the thought narration and dialouge is bad ( But hey, goes with the territory)
