From the author of Jurassic Park,Timeline, andCongocomes a psychological thriller about a group of scientists who investigate a spaceship discovered on the ocean floor.In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface, a huge vessel is unearthed. Rushed to the scene is a team of American scientists who descend together into the depths to investigate the astonishing discovery. What they find defies their imaginations and mocks their attempts at logical explanation. It is a spaceship, but apparently it is undamaged by its fall from the sky. And, most startling, it appears to be at least three hundred years old, containing a terrifying and destructive force that must be controlled at all costs.
I have no clue what’s up with that cover, but it’s sold directly from Amazon that way, so it’s got to be legit right? This is the story that the 1998 movie of the same name was based on. For some reason I was under the impression that the ending of the book was different than the book, but it wasn’t, it was exactly the same thing. There’s some minor differences in the story, but that’s to be expected for an adaptation, but there’s nothing different enough here for me to suggest reading it if you’ve already seen the film. That being said, this is a book by Michael Crichton, so it’s a great read.
