I read Congo. It is a great book. It has an excelant writing technique. The storyline is terrific. It is pact with intense action filled parts. Even though it was fiction it seemed as if it could really happen. I couldn't quit reading until I was finished. When I was finished reading I wanted to go back and read the good parts over again, because they were so good. The things that I didn't like however is that it seemed to drag on from part to part and it had some swear words. The book is about a team of people that went into the Congo Jungle, to get diomonds, the whole team of people was killed in less than three minutes. In Houston they watched, and saw everybody dead. So what do they do they send in another team. This book is very adventurous during the good parts I didn't want to put it down. It was kind of scarry how everybody was killed so fast and how it might be able to really happen. The intended audience for this book would be for adults. It is not a childrens book. Because it goes into detail during some parts of the book.

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!

Format: Hardcover
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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!
