The Andromeda Strain by best-selling author Michael Crichton is a gripping, brilliantly crafted novel. Exploring both the endless possibilities and the terrifying results of modern science, especially biological warfare, this novel will have you both wondering and fearing what will happen next.
The book starts with a satellite crash that devastates a small New Mexico town and delves into the resulting investigation and hopefully the solution to the horrific problem. Although published 48 years ago the storytelling is suspenseful, intelligent and page turning and this publication is still terrifying and frighteningly timely.
The 1971 film is also highly recommended and faithfully fulfilled the author’s cinematic vision of his work.
