Reviews

"An atmospheric and often terrifying roller-coaster ride with (literally) sky-high stakes that pays plenty of homage to The Andromeda Strain while also echoing the spirit and mood of Crichton's other works.... A thrilling and satisfying sequel to the 1969 classic."--Kirkus, starred review
"Wilson has perfectly captured the suspense of the original."--Newsday
"The Andromeda Evolution is both a kick-ass sequel and a loving tribute to one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Daniel H. Wilson has taken up Crichton's mantle and reinvented the techno-thriller, by continuing the tale that invented that genre. This is a meticulously crafted adventure story, packed with action, mystery, wonder, and just enough hard science to scare the hell out of you. So good!"--Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One
"Ingenious.... Wilson is a good choice for carrying the master's work forward....The episodes set in outer space are particularly thrilling.... Would make Crichton proud."--Washington Post
"Compelling.... An infectious evolution of the Michael Crichton literary legacy.... The cast of diverse characters engage the head and heart as they struggle to save humanity, yet remain quite human .... Explodes with an unexpected, gripping, cinematic finale."--USA Today
"Terrific.... Deftly blends science, suspense, and character interaction in a way that will be familiar to Crichton's fans.... In every way, this is a wonderful sequel to a classic novel, written in the spirit of Crichton but in Wilson's own powerful voice."--Booklist, starred review
"Wilson confidently captures the voice of the late Crichton in this chilling sequel to the 1969 blockbuster The Andromeda Strain ...

"An edge-of-your-seat thrill ride."--Bookreporter
"Superb.... There's a shock or a cliff-hanger every few pages, all rigorously controlled. Believe it or not, it's even better than the original."--Wall Street Journal
