Finally reading this over the New Years break. Enjoying it. Whilst I have only played the game fleetingly (because I'm too chicken sh*t to play it completely) I do recognise key sequences from the game within the book.
What I do enjoy is that we get to see a bit of (Ellen) Ripley's backstory prior to the Nostromo. It never dawned on me how heartbreaking Amanda's own story is too.
