The Andromeda Strain

R 167.00 R 215.00
Five prominent biophysicists give the United States government an urgent warning: sterilisation procedures for returning space probes may be inadequate to guarantee uncontaminated re-entry to the atmosphere. Two years later, Project Scoop sends seventeen satellites into the fringes of space in order to 'collect organisms and dust for study'. Then a probe falls to the earth, landing in a desolate area of northeastern Arizona. A little while later, in the nearby town of Piedmont, bodies are discovered heaped and flung across the ground, faces locked in frozen surprise. But the terror has only just begun, because when they try to find the cause of death, the scientists don't realise just what kind of unearthly danger they are dealing with... Brilliantly filmed by Robert Wise in 1971, The Andromeda Strain was the first book to introduce Michael Crichton's audacious combination of believable plots and white-knuckled excitement to a wide audience.

Fun read

This was such a fun read! The story was engaging and easy to follow. A few criticisms: the cast is basically all male, woman kept being referred to as 'girl' and the pacing was a little off at the end (basically its a long climb up-hill and then in a handful of pages you have the big finale and conclusion. But the concept was interesting and the build was great. If you're a leisure reader who isn't to critical a reader this should be an enjoyable read.
