An Antarctic research crew finds unfriendly alien, kills it only to find it can't really be killed.
I love the movie The Thing, a fantastic sci fi horror that oozed paranoia and gore. This just didn't live up to the movie. It was still an interesting read but I didn't get any closure at the end, the flow of the book felt stilted and dialogue forced. There was also too many characters to concentrate on in such a short read and it got a bit confusing trying to keep everyone straight.
Enjoyable enough especially nearer the end but overall disappointing.
