I'm reading Nick Cutter's upcoming horror novel [b:The Deep|22119322|The Deep|Nick Cutter|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1404527251s/22119322.jpg|40713268] right now and it's reminded me of how much I enjoyed Sphere, Michael Crichton's best novel. It was my favorite book when I was a kid. I remember what a page-turner it was and how much the tension kept ratcheting up until it was unbearable. I remember the plot being extremely clever as well, and how much of it was dependent on less of the sci-fi aspects and more on the characters themselves. I read it so much when I was younger, the book fell apart. But I'd love to read this again to see if it holds up!
