This is definately a crappy Fan-Fiction but if you have any nostalgic memories of Arnold yelling, " GET TO THE CHOPPA!" it serves its purpose. Plus, there are a couple of good easter eggs in here that reference the movies character Major "Dutch" Sheafer. - S. Totty
Concrete Jungle was a terrible Predator novel, but somehow its sequel, Cold War, ends up being one of the best early Alien/Predator books out there. Still, it's not a great book, by any means--just a competent one. The action is decent and the dialog is surprisingly ok.

I was pleasantly suprised that this book was really relly entertaining. I had bought this book on a whim at the local Flea Market. I figured it could not be worse than the 80s movie. Well it was nearly as good as the Arnold fest Predator movie. The book has all the problems of an 80s action movie. Bad acting, people acting stupid in the face of evidence that they were wrong. It was all very amusing and was entertaining to read. If you get a chance I recomend you read it. It will be OK.
