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.
Sphere was made into a film directed by Barry Levinson, which starred Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, and Samuel L. Jackson.
"Crichton keeps us guessing at every turn in his best work since The Andromeda Strain." (i>Los Angeles Times )
"Ingenious and beguiling." (Time)
"Sphere be Crichton's best novel, but even if it ranked only second or third, it would be a must for suspense fans." (i>Miami Herald)

Every bit as underwhelming as the movie....
Scott Brick was brilliant as always, but the story just didn't deliver. I saw the movie some 10 years ago, and thought it was a great idea that just didn't pan out. I figured it was a typical case of just being a bad adaptation of a highly touted novel. But no, the book just strings you along, making you think there would be this cool revelation about the sphere, only to give what feels like a cop out of an ending. I recommend pass on it.
