What the community says about The Andromeda Strain
- "I had seen the movie and wanted to read the book to get more detail on the mystery of The Andromeda Strain. I had read a few books by Michael Crichton but I think this is his best yet. This book is a thriller and you will not be able to put it down. You will follow along with the scientist as they try and unravel the mystery of the strain. Very thrilling and thought provoking book! "
- "The Andromeda Strain was certainly advanced for its time, but I find it somewhat boring now. The book moves slower than expected, and it can be hard to follow along at times. I hate to be that person, but I truly think the movie version is better than the book. The plot needs visual elements to move it along."
- "As a medical professional and scientist, it is a guilty pleasure of mine to read these medical thriller books. Without spoiling it, I wish I could write a positive review but I can't. For starters, the story is just unsatisfying and does not make sense to me. As the reader, that is up to you to decide; however, I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who is satisfied with their lives. Next, the book is poorly written and fills up a lot of space with charts. I'm paying for a story, not for the author's paper. Purchase at your own discretion!"
