Book Description

1 Nov 1995
Breathtaking suspense and cutting edge technology--that's the gripping mix Michael Crichton has mastered in thriller after page-turning thriller, and these three masterpieces of suspense are no exception: Congo, Sphere, and Eaters of the Dead. From the legendary ruins of a lost city in the jungle, to the mysterious depths of the ocean floor in the South Pacific, to the historic horrors of mortal combat in the tenth century A.D.--these fabulous stories transform fears of the unknown into moments of believable adventure and unbearable suspense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Overlooked Crichton 21 May 2000
By Peter A. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Three Crichton novels done an enormous disservice by the silver screen. CONGO is a great variation on his recurring theme of technology run amok. EATERS OF THE DEAD, unjustly ignored for many years, is a rip-roaring retelling of Beowulf. SPHERE is a taut and engrossing thriller that grabs you till the very last line. Oddly enough, these three works actually require LESS intellectual gymnastics than his more lucrative works-- these function quite well as adventure/thriller yarns. If you want to go digging for thoughtful nuggest, they're there, but these are three novels that work very nicely as summer beach reading. Getting all three in one volume is an especially tasty deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy, If You Haven't Already Read Them 24 July 2000
By Bill R. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
This collection houses three excellent Crichton novels: Sphere, Congo, and Eaters of The Dead. This volume is definately worth buying if you haven't already read these books. Sphere is one of his best books, the best in this collection. It is old-school science fiction with a modern twist! A must read. Also, Eaters of the Dead is an overlooked item in the Crichton canon, very different from his other books, but any MC fan will like it. It is a new reading of Beowulf (if you're into that). Congo is his classic novel celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year. All three books are must reads. That is, if you don't already have them. If you do, then there's no reason to buy this collection, as it offers basically nothing new. A must if you haven't though!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have ever read! 28 Oct 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
When a spacecraft is found one-thousand feet below the South Pacific,a team of scientists were brought in to investigate.What they found in the spacecraft while living under the sea in an underwater chamber{Navy Built} was remarkable.Many events kept happening that changed the whole story.{You are going to have to read the book to find out what happens in the end}. I think this was a wonderfully written book. Crichton did a terrific job of making a picture in my mind. He explained the book so well, that I always knew what was happening. I never wanted to stop reading it.The book never got dull and things just kept happening. GREAT BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK TO BUY!! 3 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Every single one of these books are the best book ever and now their being combined into one extroadinary book with a great cover and is put together greatly. I think Sphere is the best novel in this book but it is so hard to pick a favorite. The suspence in every novel is the spectacular and the monsters that are in every novel are scary and very creative. I love how Crichton combines science with creative monsters and non-stop suspence into one novel and now three of those novels are in one book! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to be scared to hell by an excellent author! BY THIS BOOK, IT'S AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
