The Andromeda Strain Michael Crichton read online review & book description:

From the author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes a captivating thriller about a deadly extraterrestrial microorganism, which threatens to annihilate human life.
 
Five prominent biophysicists have warned the United States government that sterilization procedures for returning space probes may be inadequate to guarantee uncontaminated re-entry to the atmosphere. Two years later, a probe satellite falls to the earth and lands in a desolate region of northeastern Arizona. Nearby, in the town of Piedmont, bodies lie heaped and flung across the ground, faces locked in frozen surprise. What could cause such shock and fear? The terror has begun, and there is no telling where it will end.

    I often jump into a book and then fall off quickly due to work, life and family. Delving into The Andromeda Strain I became immediately engrossed. I am a RN and the technical writing and medical drama really pulled me in. Sadly, this is one of only two books I read all of this year. On the plus side, it was excellent and I would highly recommend it!

    I’ve read this book several times now and still enjoy the heck out it. a fascinating premise, alien life forms returning on spacecraft. As with all of the late Michael Crichton’s books, always interesting, always entertaining. A classic sci-fi read.
  • Still one of the best...

    In terms of end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it tales, this one still holds up to a frighteningly realistic and plausible scenario, all told with the realism and "did it REALLY happen? Is this NOT fiction?" questioning that Michael Crichton's best books evoke.
  • Good read

    The first half of the book was really exciting. However, it did trail off the excitement path a little in the second half. Nevertheless, it was a good a mystery and kept me hooked. I enjoyed it.

    What a great book. The form of the book is really underrated. It functions like an experimental novel yet has the motor of a thriller. Perfection.
  • Amazing!!!

    With a few exceptions, this book holds up quite well in the decades since it was first published. A thrilling, well-written story.
