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.

"A page-turner...Chichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action. This book should come with hot buttered popcorn."
A group of American scientists are rushed to a huge vessel that has been discovered resting on the ocean floor in the middle of the South Pacific. What they find defines their imaginations and mocks their attempts at logical explanation. 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....
"The suspense is real."
