Written as a short story in-between Alien and Aliens, Out of the Shadows gave Ripley insight that pushed towards a richer understanding for both Aliens and Prometheus. I listened to it once, then again- excited with each incident, thanks to actors like Rutger Haur, Corey Johnson, Matthew Lewis and the almost duplicate voice talent of Laurel Lefkow, as Ripley. She was on point, sounding just like Sigourney Weaver!
The story begins at the end with Ripley's famous lines:
"This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off."
She placed herself in stasis, only to wake up with the crew of the DSMO Marion. Somehow Ripley's shuttle, the Narcissus, didn't head towards earth to possibly meet up with the company, as we all knew. She was forced deeper into space, towards a particular area... a mining colony. (Oh boy!) When she's awakened, she's already in neck deep in feculence. The miners have been attacked and their escape shuttles are on a collision course with their mother ship, the Marion!
It's an amazing adventure that kept me listening and regretted the ending. Not because it wasn't good but because it had to end. I love the Alien tales and I know there are more out there- they're mostly in book or comic form though. I have a ton of books and don't need more comics... For now.
Check out Alien: Out of the Shadows and let me know what you think! It's totally cool if you're already an Alien fan. This is Alyssa Hunt, book reviewer for Books! Books! Books! Signing off...
