ALIEN: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Audible audio book is a side story of what happened to Ripley between ALIEN & the sequel ALIENS when she was in hyper-sleep. The production is quite entertaining & very cinematic for an audio experience but since it almost totally relies on dialog for exposition it does at times feel like a stage play. And while the devise by which they explain the absence of this misadventure from the series is a bit shaky, the ride & characters are a great extension of the original ALIEN thrills with subtle hints of awareness of ALIENS & ALIEN3 (so it doesn't really present any new angles to the franchise). Most amazing of all is the voice actress for Ripley sounds quite strikingly like Sigourney Weaver. Rutger Hauer plays Ash who has since uploaded his AI to the drop-ship of the Nostromo which I thought was pretty nice touch. #sseig
