*ignores all the posts*

Been a little slow making it through this one. I'm at 114. Not been hating the book, but not really been drawn into it either. Struggling to find any of the characters so far particularly interesting, particularly Hoenikker. But given what's just happened, think the narratives about to kick it up a bit more.

I had the same issue, soldier on

Every character bar two in the outline was named after a cast or key crew member of Aliens or Alien3. And there was a LOT of characters. So far there's only Fairbank, Matthews and Rawlings. There's a character called Cruz (Ross originally) but I don't think it's a nod to Raymond Cruz.

Should have stuck with Ross. The comic has Cruz too.

So I'm a couple of chapters in and mercifully a number of character names have been changed from the outline.

But that 223 thing is an absolute howler...

They should have called in a pro

You not a fan of the idea of them covering LV-223 with junk then?

Yes!!! That was one of my huge issues with this...

Haven't read the book, but that's actually one of my significant issues with the latter half of Prometheus. Shaw escapes from David and the doctors and removes the Trilobite from her but... rather than going after her and seeking out the alien creature that has left her body and is now on the ship, they just move on and start tending to Weyland???

Yeah it is pretty bloody absurd.

I agree, but I figured that because they're scientists and had been ordered to work, that that's what they were doing. I figured the security synths were looking for it, and we wouldn't know because we don't get their perspective. Ideally, all this would be implied in the text, rather than ignored completely, but that's what I automatically figured.

Up to chapter 9.  I'm finding it pretty engaging despite some niggles.

Such as...

Spoiler
Several more dodgy character names.  Kash using the term 'backstory' as if they're aware they're in a story.  Someone please smash Rawlings coffee cup over his f**king head the next time he salutes with it.

I'm really struggling to get into this one, I haven't touched it again since the first few chapters. I think it's mostly because I'm in one of my don't-feel-like-reading moods (I seem to go through cycles of reading like a madman for a few months and then going off books altogether for a while; I only broke the pause for Into Chraybdis because Alex bloody White) but also I'm just not sure it's all that engaging.

Yeah, just nah.

A distribution centre on a planet that should be interdicted? A stone's throw from a colony that needed marines? Don't think so.
