1.0 von 5 Sternen What happened here..., 21. Juli 2000
To start off, I'll clear up what appears to be confusing some people, and then I'll write the review. This book takes place BEFORE Bischoff's Hunter Planet. It fills in the time when Noguchi was with the Predators, before she rejoined human society. So there.
Now, the review -- This book, frankly, stunk. Picking up right after Aliens: Berserker, a year after AvP: Prey, and two years before AvP: Hunter's Planet, War was just a short, silly, boring waste of time and money.
The characters from Berserker were still the same, still recognizable, but with roughly ninety pages to divide between the three of them, we just didn't get enough of them. Not to mention that through… Mehr dazu

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too short and uninvolving, 15. Juli 2000
This book racks in at 72 pages, but it starts on page 6, and 25 of the remaining 66 pages are illustrations. That turns this book into a 40 page book. The art is excellent, up to Dorman's standards, creepy, photorealistic, and lots of fun to look at. But the writing leaves a lot to be desired. Overlong senteces and too many big words obscure some really neat scenes. The story's pretty good, though, and it introduces the idea of a "berserker" unit that will be brought back later in Perry's novel. This book is a neat addition to the Aliens series, it just costs too much for too little content.
I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to &hellip von Bill Bryson
Its really a great thing when someone can look at the little, everyday mundane issues of life and make something out of them, and that's just what Bryson does in this book. A collection of articles on his reflections about american life after having lived in England for 20 years and then moving back, this is an absolutely hilarious book, an essential read.
This guy is a wonderful complainer, explainer, and retainer of trivial knowledge. Reading this book, you'll not only end up on the floor laughing, you'll also learn something. While a few of the articles feel forced and aren't very funny (new computer/tax form/mysteries of life) overall this is an engrossing, fun funny look… Mehr dazu
