"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.

Product Description:

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.

Product Description:

"A page-turner...Chichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action. This book should come with hot buttered popcorn."
NEWSWEEK
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."
