“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.

Review:

Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton is possibly the best science teacher for the masses since H.G. Wells, and Sphere, his thriller about a mysterious spherical spaceship at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, is classic Crichton. A group of not-very-complex characters (portrayed in the film by Sharon Stone, Dustin Hoffman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Queen Latifah) assemble to solve a cleverly designed roller coaster of a mystery while attempting (with mixed success) to avoid sudden death and expounding (much more successfully) on the latest, coolest scientific ideas, including the existence of black holes. Somehow, Crichton manages to convey the complicated stuff in utterly simplistic prose, making him, as his old pal Steven Spielberg puts it, "the high priest of high concept." Yet there is more to Crichton than science and big-ticket show biz. He is also, as any reader of his startling memoir Travels knows, a bit of a mystic--he is entirely open to notions spouted by spoon-bending psychics that most science writers would scorn. Sphere is not only a gratifying sci-fi suspense tale; it also reflects Crichton's keen interest in the unexplained powers of the human mind. When something passes through a black hole in Crichton's fiction, a lesson is learned. The book also contains another profound lesson: when you're staring down a giant squid with an eyeball the size of a dinner plate, don't blink first.

From the Inside Flap:

An astonishing discovery is made in the South Pacific, 1,000 feet below the surface of the water. A spaceship has been found resting on the ocean floor -- a spaceship at least 300 years old.

Has it come from an alien culture? From a different universe?

Four scientists -- an astrophysicist, a biologist, a mathematician, and a psychologist -- rush to the scene, and descend together into the depths of the sea to search for answers. What they find there only raises more -- and increasingly ominous -- questions.

Ingenious and suspenseful, Sphere is Michael Crichton at the top of his form.

Michael Crichton's bestselling novels include Airframe, The Lost World, Jurassic Park, and Disclosure. He is also the creator of the television series ER.

Edward Asner won five Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Lou Grant -- first on The Mary Tyler. Moore Show and then on Lou Grant.
