Description

New York Times bestselling author Michael Crichton delivers another action-packed techo-thriller in State of Fear.

When a group of eco-terrorists engage in a global conspiracy to generate weather-related natural disasters, its up to environmental lawyer Peter Evans and his team to uncover the subterfuge.
 
From Tokyo to Los Angeles, from Antarctica to the Solomon Islands, Michael Crichton mixes cutting edge science and action-packed adventure, leading readers on an edge-of-your-seat ride while offering up a thought-provoking commentary on the issue of global warming. A deftly-crafted novel, in true Crichton style, State of Fear is an exciting, stunning tale that not only entertains and educates, but will make you think.

    I've long been a Crichton fan and, though not in my view one of his best, I enjoyed this book. The "hero" escapes death by a hair's breadth a few too many times but there's a lot of action. There is also a lot of thought provoking information plunged into the plot and I loved the Kenner character.
  • Even Congress Read This!

    Fantastic read, based on an intense dedication to research. MC didn't want to write this book, because he knew it would upset the eco crowd. But his plot was so solidly based on research, that even Congress asked him to testify about global warming. I believe the stress of the controversy of this book contributed to his fatal heart attack. I couln't put it down.

    Crichton once again stirs the pot and brings up some startling facts about global warming set in a nail-biting scenario. A good, if sometimes dry, read.

    Although the mechanisms to create catastrophe seemed a little far-fetched, the content of the story was interesting.

    Just finished "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton. Very well written story about "Global Climate Change". Filled with actual research data and statistics based on actual data. (ie: Facts) Highly recommend to all who want an education on the subject. The e-book version contains a lot of extras, transcripts of talks Crichton gave on the subject and a ton of extra information and links to actual data and resources.

    Probably a lot more truth than fiction in this book.
