I am a reader. That is the one word that can pretty much sum me up. I have read just about everything from Jane Austin to John Grisham, but time and again there is one book I can ALWAYS pick up again.

I honestly believe that Michael Crichton is the most gifted science-fiction author. Ever. His work covers almost every topic ever contemplated: Time travel, space ships, dinosaurs, the list goes on.

In every one of his books, he takes what has been touched on by others and throws it into the open, giving so much attention to detail that for a moment it is almost possible to believe that maybe this could really happen. What I feel is the real mark of greatness in Crichton's writing, is that in every one of his works, Michael Crichton EXPLAINS the science behind the story in such a way that almost anyone could read it and still understand it.

Isn't that really the goal of every great science-fiction novelist?

But in "Sphere" Crichton has outdone himself. The characters are well developed, the atmosphere is positively electric and the narrative is something so outstandingly original that I dare not go any further into detail, lest I spoil the book for those of you who haven't read it yet.

So, READ IT!
And once you're done, READ IT AGAIN!
You'll thank me for it later.
