A trecento metri di profondità, sul fondale del Pacifico, giace una misteriosa nave spaziale di dimensioni inaudite. Da dove è arrivata? Da una civiltà aliena? Da un altro universo? Dal futuro, attraversando un buco nero? Per risolvere l’enigma un’équipe di scienziati, guidata dal brillante psicologo Norman Johnson, viene inviata sul posto, mentre il mare si popola improvvisamente di mostruose creature e sugli schermi dei computer appaiono inquietanti messaggi. Nel buio degli abissi, chiusi nel claustrofobico habitat che dovrebbe proteggerli dal pericolo esterno, Johnson e i suoi compagni dovranno fronteggiare una scoperta terrificante, che supera le leggi stesse dell’immaginazione. Una fantastica avventura ai confini della realtà in un esaltante thriller sottomarino in bilico tra scienza e mistero.

Very much yada yada, humanities vs natural sciences and a wasted plot idea with far too less action and twists. I still remember how boredom and disappointment grew, after the first few chapters showed the setting and some suspense was built up and then it got lengthy and neither the psychological in Leggi tutto
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 bou Leggi tutto
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 alwa Leggi tutto
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 and
Sphere, Michael Crichton Sphere is a 1987 novel by Michael Crichton. It was adapted into the film Sphere in 1998. The story follows Norman Johnson, a psychologist engaged by the United States Navy, who joins a team of scientists assembled to examine a spacecraft of unknown origin, discovered on the b Leggi tutto
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 should s Leggi tutto
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 happening Leggi tutto
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 human Leggi tutto
“You look so unhappy right now.” That is a quote from my boyfriend about my face while reading this. I fell asleep while reading this. In the middle of the day. It also took me almost three months to read. Safe to say, I did not enjoy it. I absolutely love/loved Jurassic Park (who doesn’t) so I was Leggi tutto
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 Knight
