Outstanding and eminently readable, 'Gravity' is part medical thriller, part science fiction, and all un-put-downable.
When a lab experiment sent to the International Space Station for study under microgravity conditions turns deadly, it's up to the station crew to try to stay alive and to NASA's ground crew to figure out how to provide aid and whether to bring them home and risk contaminating Earth with a horrifying plague. Woven through this are the complex relationships between several of the main characters and, ultimately, between a civilian space exploration program and a military structure whose goals are often very different.
Gerritson never cuts back on the suspense and keeps various countdown clocks ticking as the story unspools. Descriptions of the agonizing and lethal attacks on the various ISS crew members are not for the faint of heart. This one will keep you up until the last page is turned â¦ and perhaps for a while beyond that.
One of Gerritsen's best yet. I missed the movie, but loved the book and do not need to see the movie now. There is no way it would be as good.
The book held my attention with every page and there were no slow areas where the story dragged. In fact, I began reading it around noon yesterday and finished it this morning. Loved it!
I felt as though I learned so much and really appreciated the addition of a Glossary which saved me from many moments of confusion that I might have had had it not been there. I also have a far better understanding and appreciation of NASA and all our wonderful, brave astronauts.
Great book. I felt like I was on the Space Station, but it was not too much detail.
I really liked this book!
This was a great book,fast read.
