Read from September 10 to 13, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 10

Alan Dean Foster's adaptation of the original Alien screenplay is pitch-perfect. Every nuance of character from the original film translates to the novel and is taut and frighteningly suspenseful. I would heartily recommend to fans of the film, especially as there are several scenes from the original screenplay and ended up on the cutting room flaw.

My only complaint of the novelization is some of the plot-revealing scenes from the derelict spacecraft are curiously missing - possible last minutes script rewrites?
