I've just realised something after reading the review (good work BTW, has made me feel justified in not getting it).
I've been reading 3WExit as three-wexit. But the 3 is supposed to be a B isn't it? It's Bwexit. Like how Harry Enfield's Tory Boy would pronounce brexit.

Damn. Just... Damn.

I'm not a huge fan of either, but they both had more redeeming factors and general entertainment value than I found in Colony War.

It's always a pleasure reading your reviews although I'd argue that this novel wasn't as much of a let down as the Isolation novelization or Covenant: Origins. So I'd rank it above those two books from Titan but nonetheless the rest of your criticisms were completely valid.

I actually agree that I find those two more offensive, although in qualitative terms, Colony War's probably the worst one for me.

actually. finish it. Write a proper mean review and log it on goodreads.com

Publishers, writers and editors use that site a LOT.
If you want your opinion known outside of the alien fanbase...

I'm about six or seven chapters in and I'm honestly debating whether I'll finish it.

And I've never not finished an Alien novel.

And I didn't even touch everything that disappointed me. I just ran out of energy to go into more. I was really disappointed by this one. More so than any of the others.

I'll probably start this one tomorrow. It seems like it may be kinda trashy going by the handful of reviews I've glanced at, but I also know my history of liking EU material nobody else likes.

Kinda hoping / presuming Alex White will return and pen a third, he seems to be able to push things forward...

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on May 16, 2022, 09:47:54 AMI've still not decided on whether or not to do a podcast review on this. I'm feeling a severe lack of enthusiasm at the minute.

Podcast, but I recommend drinking heavily first.  Let the F-bombs flow.
