Predator Novel

The Predator novel is more of a mythic story than the movie. In the novel, the alien changes its form to appear as different animals, and this ability seems to be found in the myths of different cultures of the distant past, while in the movie, the alien only uses its invisible technology. Also in the novel, the alien uses a spear, a symbol of primitive power, to kill the soldiers, while in the movie, the alien uses a directional energy blaster. The novel also features scenes of greater emotional effect such as when Anna is watching in horrified fascination the alien closing the distance to the unaware Hawkins and when the soldiers find the alien's tracks and fearfully realize its presence. Overall, the novel is a good survival story.

A near perfect top notch sci fi masterpiece.

A much more engrossing and captivating story than that contained in the movie of the same name, Predator tells the story of an elite military rescue unit sent into the jungles of South America to rescue American hostages. After a thrilling and bloody firefight at the enemy base, the men begin their long trip to the helicopter rendevous point. Along the way, they are hunted and killed, one by one, by an unseen creature that uses the jungle to hide. Finally, only one man remains, left to hunt the hunter and free the earth from it's carnage. The book maintains a nearly impossible breakneck speed from start to finish. Not only is this a finely crafted science fiction story, but it is also a glorious Rambo-style novel full of big guns and even bigger battles. A great and wholly satisfying read.
