Here, even the wind screams. Abandoned hulks of machinery rust in the colorless landscape. Dark, oily seas beat against a jagged black shore. And the remnants of a reentry space vehicle crash into the rough waves. In it sleeps Ripley, a woman who has battled the enemy twice. It killed her whole crew the first time. The second time, it slaughtered a spaceload of death-dealing Marines.

Now on this prison planet that houses only a horde of defiant, captive men, she will have to fight the ultimate alien horror one more time. Download and start listening now!

    " I picked up the book-on-tape version of "Alien 3" because it was read by Lance Henriksen. And that's...pretty much the only thing I can say about this, good or otherwise. The story made absolutely no impression on me "

    " A faithful adaption to the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 6/9/2012

    " interesting for including scenes that didn't make it into the final movie "

    " I'm a fan of Alien/Aliens movies, but this was a huge letdown. Somehow there was virtually no suspense in the entire story, and I quickly grew bored with the plot, however original the setting. Is this what happens when a book is based on a screenplay? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra | 5/24/2011

    " So far I absolutely love it. I'm in love with the movies and the book conveys everything you might want. "

    " A written version of the movie tie-in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiina | 10/24/2010

    " Thoroughly enjoyable book that gives a deeper feel to the famous characters of the movie. The story is slightly different but mostly in terms of details. Jones kind of rules the place :) "

    " RIPLEY KICKS ASS!!!! She's on my list of favorite fictional female heroes (along with Buffy, Xena & Marion Ravenwood.) Too bad none of them started out as literary characters. If only she had been around when I was a kid - I would have grown up wanting to be Ripley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 9/28/2010

    " Truly the equal (although different of course) to the excellent story, drama, and suspense of the film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/17/2010

    " More of sci-fi horror. Excellent book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 7/9/2010

    " This was a good read. It was nice to read this book again after so long. Though I still prefer the second story and movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 2/27/2010

    " Excellent for a movie tie in. ADF is great at this kind of stuff. Interesting for the few scenes in the book left out of the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pylades | 1/2/2010

    " Just as suspenseful as the movie, with a little more personality showcased in each character. I loved this book as a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 10/27/2009

    " Great story. Will get into it and the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.M. | 5/19/2009

    " This remains one of my favorite movie series to date. It was innovative at its time, blending the lines between sci-fi and horror with expert ease. Getting a well-known author such as Alan Dean Foster to write the novelization was genius and really helps build the world beyond the film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Are | 3/20/2009

    " I read this before I saw the movie. I remember having nightmares from this book because I would always read it late at night. "
