Hello Gemmies! I have a new audiobook review to share with you today. Alien III by William Gibson is a wonderful audible original dramatization complete with full cast narration and sound effects. Alien III was originally written in 1987 by William Gibson but never produced. This cult classic script was produced as an audible original production in honor of the films 40th anniversary. Cast members include Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen.... does it get any better than that?!?
Alien III takes place immediately at the end of the events in the second movie Aliens. This script fits well into the main storyline and it is so much better than the actual Alien III movie that was made. The action starts right away and keeps a breakneck pace throughout. This is a must read/listen for any fan of the series. The production quality is top notch and Laurel Lefkow narrating as Ripley was spot on as usual. Although Ripley plays a smaller role in this story. Hicks (Michale Biehn) and Bishop (Lance Henriksen) are the real standouts! At only two hours and sixteen minutes long, this is a great way to escape for an afternoon.
If you are a fan of the Alien franchise, like monsters in space, science fiction horror, carnage, and pulse pounding action give this book a try. Produced by Audible Ltd, and Directed by Dirk Maggs, Alien III is available for purchase from Audible and all major booksellers. I give Alien III 4 out of 5 gems. Happy Listening!
