State of Fear by Michael Crichton Review


State of Fear by Michael Crichton

 In Paris, a physicist dies after performing
a laboratory experiment for a beautiful visitor.

In the jungles of Malaysia, a mysterious buyer
purchases deadly cavitation technology, built to
his specifications.

In Vancouver, a small research submarine is leased
for use in the waters off New Guinea.

And in Tokyo, an intelligence agent tries to
understand what it all means.


Thus begins Michael Crichton's exciting and provocative techno-thriller State of Fear. Only Crichton's unique ability to blend scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction could bring such disparate elements to a heart-stopping conclusion.

This is Crichton's most wide-ranging thriller. State of Fear takes the reader from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Antarctica, from the Arizona desert to the deadly jungles of the Solomon Islands, from the streets of Paris to the beaches of Los Angeles. The novel races forward on a roller-coaster thrill ride, all the while keeping the brain in high gear. Gripping and thought provoking, State of Fear is Michael Crichton at his very best.

--------------------------

I found this novel very interesting and eye opening.  Although this novel is ficticious, Michael Crichton discusses "global warming", enviromentalists, and the "fear mongering" supported by our media.  He provides accurate facts and data, along with authentic references.

Although I found the ending of the novel lacking, I abosolutely enjoyed this book and found it very enlightening.  I would recommend it.

    I really like the fact that he included many references as well. Glad you liked it too. Nothing wrong with learning and looking at issues from other points of view. Thanks for posting.
