Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The reason for the three stars is for Mr. Alan Dean Foster...The man is a genius when it comes to world-building, characterization, and building tension. His description of events is spot-on as well. With that out of the way, let me just say that Alien: Covenant has to be one of the WORST stories I've ever read. I honestly don't know why Mr. Foster was brought on to waste his great talents on this filth of a film. For a while prior to its release, I was eagerly awaiting the film. But, upon reading reviews about the film and reading this novelization, I'm convinced that the Alien franchise is truly, truly in deep trouble. I strongly urge all of you who might be interested in seeing the film to spend your money on this good novelization and stay away from seeing this nonsense in the theatre!!! It's not worth it!!!
