Description

"Ingenious and beguiling."
--Time

"Crichton keeps us guessing at every turn in his best work since The Andromeda Strain."
--Los Angeles Times

"Sphere may be Crichton's best novel, but even if it ranked only second or third, it would be a must for suspense fans."
--Miami Herald

A classic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Crichton, Sphere is a bravura demonstration of what he does better than anyone: riveting storytelling that combines frighteningly plausible, cutting edge science and technology with pulse-pounding action and serious chills. The gripping story of a group of American scientists sent to the ocean floor to investigate an alien ship, only to confront a terrifying discovery that defies imagination, Sphere is Crichton prime--truly masterful fiction from the ingenious mind that brought us Prey, State of Fear, and Jurassic Park.

Back cover copy

"Crichton keeps us guessing at every turn in his best work since The Andromeda Strain."--Los Angeles Times

In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, a huge vessel is discovered resting on the ocean floor. It is a spaceship of phenomenal dimensions, apparently undamaged by its fall from the sky. And, most startling, it appears to be at least three hundred years old. But even more fantastic--and frightening--is what waits inside . . .

"A page-turner with oomph. . . . Crichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action."--Newsweek

"Sphere may be Crichton's best novel, but even if it ranked only second or third, it would be a must for suspense fans."--Miami Herald
