"Relentlessly suspenseful...A hair-raising experience."
THE PITTSBURGH PRESS

One of the things I love about Crichton is his ability to make even the most mundane of objects--such as the small catch-lever on a printer, or a single cell of an organism--carry the greatest importance. "Andromeda Strain" synthesizes the mysteries of biology and technology and creates a breathtaking mystery that kept me hooked till the very end!

The Andromeda Strain is old school Sci Fi. Well written and gripping, the story holds up 40 years later. The only problem with the books is the ending. It was completely unsatisfying ending for such a good book.
