Sphere by Michael Crichton

Into the Wild

Sphere Read Online Free - 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."

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

Back in 1993, after reading Jurassic Park (see review of that book HERE), I was like in Crichton-mode actived! ;) So, my next novel had to be by Michael Crichton! I went to the bookstore and this one was the first book that I checked and after reading the premise, I found it promising. ;) So, I bo...

First, an overlong apologist's review of Michael Crichton. Then, a very short review of Sphere. (Life update: I am procrastinating). In my opinion, you can only truly rate a Michael Crichton book by a) the depth and originality of the concept and b) the lucidity of the monologue/essay that will a...

I had some idea what to expect when I picked up the late Michael Crichton's sci-fi thriller Sphere because I'd seen the movie years ago -- a movie I love by the way despite a lot of lambasting from the critics and grumbling from the book's fans. Sure it isn't perfect (with its moments of cheese a...

Bullet points seem appropriate when it comes to Sphere, the 1987 science fiction thriller by Michael Crichton. One of the qualities about Crichton's work that I love is the unabashed clarity of his concepts and the dependable navigation of his novels. Crichton doesn't seem like he's lost or shoul...

Well... that was very strange. This book is a combination of psychological thriller and science fiction. It follows a group of scientists as they investigate what is thought to be an alien vessel that crashed on the ocean floor. Crichton's musings have a tendency to be deeply speculative of the hum...

Well, I had no idea there was a Sphere book. I only saw the movie and thought that was it. Not to mention that the book is written by the same author as Jurassic Park. A group of American scientists are rushed to a huge vessel that has been discovered resting on the ocean floor in the middle of t...

Read this when I was in high school, and was one of the few times I've been up nearly all night reading, saying to myself every hour, "I need to go to sleep," but then couldn't put it down. The movie adaptation was atrocious, so don't judge this story based on the film (I always pictured Ted Knig...

2.5 stars. Was debating whether to give it a 2.5 or a 3, with the number changing throughout the book. Man, this was... Lukewarm? Lackluster? Disappointing, definitely. What I liked • Interesting premise that held my attention up until the middle of the book, where improbable things start happeni...

One of the first books I ever read, and will always hold a big place in my heart. There's always room for (view spoiler)[black-hole time-travel under-water space-monsters that's all in your mind (hide spoiler)].

I'm reading Nick Cutter's upcoming horror novel The Deep right now and it's reminded me of how much I enjoyed Sphere, Michael Crichton's best novel. It was my favorite book when I was a kid. I remember what a page-turner it was and how much the tension kept ratcheting up until it was unbearable....
