There's a new genetic cure for drug addiction—is it worse than the disease?
We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps, a time when it's possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars and to test our spouses for genetic maladies. We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes. Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn.
Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and the bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.
New to eBooks. This ebook is only available for sale into the following countries: Next by Michael Crichton. 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. Leia mais Leia menos.

Dragon Teeth: Wells , and Sphere , his thriller about a mysterious spherical spaceship at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, is classic Crichton. Jackson, and Queen Latifah assemble to solve a cleverly designed roller coaster of a mystery while attempting with mixed success to avoid sudden death and expounding much more successfully on the latest, coolest scientific ideas, including the existence of black holes.
Somehow, Crichton manages to convey the complicated stuff in utterly simplistic prose, making him, as his old pal Steven Spielberg puts it, "the high priest of high concept.
He is also, as any reader of his startling memoir Travels knows, a bit of a mystic--he is entirely open to notions spouted by spoon-bending psychics that most science writers would scorn.
Sphere is not only a gratifying sci-fi suspense tale; it also reflects Crichton's keen interest in the unexplained powers of the human mind. When something passes through a black hole in Crichton's fiction, a lesson is learned.

I can't think of another author who combines science, suspense and the woo-woo of the supernatural as well as Crichton, and this book is amazing.
A psychologist was hired to write a paper on what would happen if humanity were confronted with aliens--happy to have been paid, Norman finished the paper and went on with his life.
Years later, he's asked by the Navy to go on a trip to the bottom of the Pacific to be part of the team Norman had suggested so many years ago. Once he's a thousand feet down in a special habitat for high pressure living, Norman and the crew are taken by submarine to a spaceship that's hidden under coral, and that's not the weirdest part of the story--the ship has been underwater at least years, and the writing on the walls of the strange ship are in English.
From explaining living under 30 pressures, to unveiling the purpose of the strange sphere found inside the ship void of any signs of life except for one mummified crew member, Crichton creates a story that's hard to put down, while educating his readers on deeps sea life--black holes--the mysteries of the human imagination--along with a study of the shadow part of our minds, our unconscious. I truly can't think of an author that can cram all of that into one book, and make it hard to put down.
What an amazing author. Well, Michael Crichton is starting to become one of my favorite authors.
His plot lines are so creative, and he executes them pretty well.
