Sphere Essay, Research Paper

The Sphere is a novel about a huge vessel that is discovered in the South

Pacific on the ocean floor. A group of scientists descended to investigate

the mysterious discovery. The protagonists are the scientists: Norman,

Ellen, Captain Barnes, Dr. Johnson, Beth, Harry, and Ted. The antagonist of

the story at the beginning is a set of tragedies. Later the antagonist turns
