I have all 3 avp novels and I say Prey is the best, any opinions?

Keen incisions, I deliver! Unscathed organs, I deliver! Repossessions, I deliver! I'm the Repo, Legal Assassin!

I don't like the novels.

Too many people start using them at face value and in arguments.

For example, Preds have no tongues. How the HELL do they get all those sounds when all we've heard is clicks and grunts (and remember, there is an African clicking language...)?

where does it say preds have tongues?
im not sure what your argument is, what side of it,
they prob have some kind of part of their upper throat that makes the sounds, at least thats what it looks like in pred 1 when the pred is dying and you can see right in his mouth, the back of the mouth moves when he talks

I'm saying how do they make the 'th' and 's' and, hell, 'l' (well, any sound other than crckt)) if they have no tongue?

could be a flap in the back of the mouth, beyond where you can see that forms the sounds, something like a tongue

Yeah, the fact it's a made up language is embarrassingly evident. The person who created it basically just threw together a bunch of typical fantasy-style dungeons-and-dragons-ish "dark & brutal" syllable mixes. There's a lot of deep sh-sounds, strong vowels, wheezing, sharp apostrophe twists and turns etc. The stuff you'd play around with if you wanted to create a Klingon or an Orch language.

It's really pretty sad. They could have put some thought into it and come up with something better, at least something that was BIT less earth-like.
