In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, a huge spaceship is discovered resting on the ocean floor.
Rushed to the scene is a group of American scientists who descended together into the depths of the sea to investigate this astonishing discovery. What the find defies 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…
Has the ship come from an alien culture? From a different universe? From the future? Why, initially, are there no creatures on the sea floor, and then suddenly swarms of “impossible animals,” of a whole new species? Who – or what – transmitting messages on to the scientists’ computer screen…messages that grow increasingly hostile? What is the giant, perfect, metallic sphere – clearly not made by man, and seemingly impenetrable by him – that they find inside the spaceship? And – most crucially – what is the extraordinary, the terrifying power that threatens their undersea habitat, and then their very lives…
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
