The United States government is given a warning by the pre-eminent biophysicists in the country: current sterilization procedures applied to returning space probes may be inadequate to guarantee uncontaminated re-entry to the atmosphere. Two years later, seventeen satellites are sent into the outer fringes of space to "collect organisms and dust for study." One of them falls to earth, landing in a desolate area of Arizona. Twelve miles from the landing site, in the town of Piedmont, a shocking discovery is made: the streets are littered with the dead bodies of the town's inhabitants, as if they dropped dead in their tracks.… (més)

Did I enjoy it? Yes Did It merit 4 stars? NO but I would give it 3 and a half. Like Asimov's Foundation it is horribly dated. This is a product of the 60s. And it showed. One hopes that Crichton 's novels get better. ( )

Jedna z nejslavnějších knih Michaela Crichtona je detailně promyšlenou vizí kosmické nákazy šířící se na Zemi. Popisuje pět dnů největší americké vědecké krize. Tak jak bývá při řešení krizí obvyklé, je chování jejich účastníků směsí předvídavosti a zatmění mysli – krize jsou dobou pro skvělé i naprosto nesmyslné nápady.
Čtyři vědci vybraní pro své vědecké úspěchy jsou v úplném utajení povoláni do laboratoří ukrytých pod nevadskou pouští. A zde, obklopeni nejmodernější technikou a odříznuti od světa, bojují s celosvětovou epidemií působenou neznámým mikroorganizmem, který zabil, kromě dvou, všechny obyvatele jednoho městečka v Arizoně, kam dopadl kontaminovaný satelit, sbírající kosmické vzorky. Krok za krokem odhalují tajemství kmene Andromeda. Avšak jejich protivník unikne ze svého vězení v laboratoři a závod o čas se ještě zrychluje.
Autorovo vypravěčské umění, smysl pro detail a vědecké znalosti vytvářejí reálný svět současného výzkumu, a také nezapomenutelný čtenářský zážitek.

Some are led to believe this is a typical work of fiction; I warn you, it is not. From the get go, The Andromeda Strain reads like a commission report that goes into great depths of what happens in the five days in which the story takes place. Many other reviews have noted that Michael Crichton had a plot going steadily and then somehow lost it. He didn't. What they failed to understand that the book wasn't meant to be taken in like a work a fiction; it was meant to be read as a "factual" account of "factual" events. Plain and simple.

Addictive as crack . Burned through the book in a few hours and after the initial sluggish begining, the entire climax and etc was pretty heart racing stuff. Good stuff. ( )

I believe the first time I read this was very likely not horribly long after it was released. May have been around 73 or 74. I remembered very little of the story, beyond the initial destruction of a small town, one character's reaction to blinking lights, and the Wildfire facility.

Having re-read this, I think Crichton was a touch more enamoured with the facility and the science around it, than the actual Andromeda Strain itself, still, he chose a very unique narrative voice to tell this story, and I have to say, I actually enjoyed the hell out of it.

Yes, it's dated, but one of Crichton's smartest decisions was to set it in present (for the time) day 1969, so the tech actually holds up very well.

All in all, a fun ride to revisit half a century (!) later. ( )

"All yours, Gunner." Wilson did not answer. He dropped his nose, cracked down his flaps, and felt a shudder as the plane sank sickeningly, like a stone, toward the ground. Below him, the area around the town was lighted for hundreds of yards in every direction. He pressed the camera buttons and felt, rather than heard, the vibrating whir of the cameras. For a long moment he continued to fall, and then he shoved the stick forward, and the plane seemed to catch in the air, to grasp, and lift and climb. He had a fleeting glimpse of the main street. He saw bodies, bodies everywhere, spreadeagled, lying in the streets, across cars ... "Jesus," he said. And then he was up, still climbing, bringing the plane around in a slow arc, preparing for the descent into his second run and trying not to think of what he and seen. One of the first rules of air reconnaisssance was "Ignore the scenery"; analysis and evaluation were not the job of the pilot. That was left to the experts, and pilots who forgot this, who became too interested in what they were photgraphing, got into trouble. Usually they crashed.
