Sphere by Michael CrichtonA 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 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....
The suspense is real.

A page-turner...Chichtons writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action. This book should come with hot buttered popcorn.

Too bad. The underlying idea is the same: Humans come in contact with an extraterrestrial presence that makes their fears seem real. The earlier novel and film challenged our ideas about human consciousness. As the movie opens, an expert team is brought to the middle of the Pacific, where an amazing thing has been found on the ocean floor: a giant spacecraft, apparently buried for nearly years, that still emits a distant hum--suggesting it is intact and may harbor life. The members of the team: a psychologist Dustin Hoffman , a mathematician Samuel L. Jackson , a biochemist Sharon Stone and an astrophysicist Liev Schreiber.
