"A page-turner...Chichton's writing is cinematic, with powerful visual images and nonstop action. This book should come with hot buttered popcorn."
NEWSWEEK
A 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 defines 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."

Disappointing pulp fiction. The story is well paced and compelling but in order to enjoy it you have to turn your brain off since it turns into a series of escalating events, each more unbelievable than the last.

My second favourite of Crichton's novels (after Airframe). This is another one that has me returning to reread it periodically. The first time I read it, I didn't see any of the twists or turns coming. Even now that I know them all, it's still a thrilling page turner.

Excellent sci-fi thriller. Moves at a great pace and kept me entertained and guessing the whole way through, while also exploring some interesting scientific and psychological topics. It's the first Crichton book I've read and I think I'll be looking to read more.

Crichton is the best. As always, it was full of interesting theories, kept me on the edge.

This is such an entertaining book. A re-read for me, but I had forgotten how good it is. I really enjoy Crichton's style, he manages to entertain and educate at the same time. Definitely recommend this one
