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. Bullet points seem appropriate when it comes to Sphere the 1987 science fiction thriller by Michael Crichton One of the ualities 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 should stop to ask for directions Other writers those with loftier creative ambitions perhaps tend to circle around ideas like mankind's first contact with extraterrestrials as if they've never been in this neighborhood before Crichton doesn't take the scenic route He accelerates directly to FINISH usually provoking uite a literary rush Usually Norman Johnson a 53 year old psychologist is raced across the Pacific Ocean in a Navy helicopter Skipped from Honolulu to Guam to Pago Pago to wherever he is Norman is on the FAA's list of crash site teams and has responded to three airline disasters in the last decade The Navy has told him that there's been an airplane crash but information en route has been murky Out of the blue appear than a dozen ships eight Navy destroyers two Remote Vehicle Support ships a Mission Support and Supply ship and a couple of Oceanic Survey and Research Vessels including the John Hawes which Norman is dropped off on Norman is taken to the project commander Captain Harold Barnes Informed that there were no survivors Norman is at a loss as to why he was summoned his specialty being the treatment of psychological trauma suffered by airline crash survivors Barnes notifies Norman that there is no aircraft It's a spacecraft And estimations are that the crash occurred three hundred years ago Norman is here because of a report the National Security Council paid him to write for the Carter administration recommending contingency plans in the event of extraterrestrial contact Norman's paper which he considered a joke at the time was titled Recommendations for the Human Contact Team to Interact with Unknown Life Forms ULF Norman is taken to meet his recommendations Ted Fielding is a 40 year old astrophysicist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Pompous but cheerful he's a science communicator who's appeared on television and is a major advocate of SETI the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence He can't wait to get down to the spacecraft which is settled only a thousand feet beneath the surface Ted compensates for his perceived lack of accomplishment in his field by hoping this event will be his legacy Beth Halpern is a 36 year old zoologist biochemist at the University of Chicago She's a serious weightlifter and runner Her recent work has been studying cephalopods Her thesis is that if not for their three year life span octopi might be the dominant intelligence on earth Beth reveals to Norman that Barnes is ex Navy and as a member of the Defense Science Board advises the Joint Chiefs of Staff on weapons acuisitions Harry Adams is a 30 year old mathematician at Princeton the youngest but most vital member of the team His job is to communicate with the ULF A prodigy in the field of probability he has a chip on his shoulder but is almost always right He theorizes that the spacecraft is view spoilernot from another planet hide spoiler

Sphere by Michael CrichtA 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 defies their imaginations and mocks. 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 CrichtonI 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 bought it and started to read itWoWSince the beginning I was in shock amalgamated with happiness since the style and mood of the novel was astonishing good Of course by then I hadn't read yet The Andromeda Strain so the idea of gathering a group of expert scientist to deal with something alien was something new for me P I don't know if happens to you that sometimes if you are reading a novel that it hasn't being made into a film yet I read the novel like 5 years before to be poorly adapted to a movie sometimes I imagined some actor or actress to play the role of the character in my mind an amusing thing was by then in 1993 Sharon Stone was in hype due films like Basic Instinct and Sliver so when I imagined some actress to fill my image of Dr Beth Halperin I thought in Sharon Stone that she eventually got the roleHonest to God True storyCuriously 5 years later Sharon Stone wasn't in hype any so knowing that she was casted in the role that I pictured in my mind was amusing but odd at the same timeI didn't picture Dustin Hoffman for the role of Dr Goodman no offense to Mr Hoffman which is an actor that I admired a lot but I thought in Sean Connery for that characterAnyway the film was a big dissapointment for me since it was very poor adaptation to such excellent book so if you ever watched the film and you didn't like it don't worry that's normal but please if that's the reason that you haven't read this novel yet please go and read it Of course if you have the luck of not having watched the film please PLEASE don't watch itI can assure you that the novel is way way WAY better in infinite ways than that mediocre filmI already mentioned the style and mood of the book I just want to take the topic again to mention that it was a thrilling experience since you feel that the story is taken very seriously from the scientific angleAll the journey and process of exploring the alien ship is brilliant you feel that you are there down in the bottom in the ocean with them walking with themThere is a major spoiler in this book that I won't comment here don't worry but please avoid at all costs to know that spoiler if you choose to read the book since it's that kind of spoilers that if you already knew it before of reading the book simply you will ruin all the fun of actually reading the book and making the investigation along with the scientist groupIf you like sci fi book andor techno thriller novels this is a GREAT optionHighly recommended
