Book Description


See all titles by Michael Crichton.

A first-of-a-kind thriller - a fast-paced adventure based on the notion that a current widespread fear is baseless. Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research.

The author devastatingly demolishes myths and misconceptions about global warming: Antarctica is not fast melting away, nor is Greenland defrosting; global temperatures are not rising rapidly; ocean levels are not surging upward; we are not extinguishing most of the Earth's species... State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

From the streets of Paris, to the glaciers of Antarctica to the exotic and dangerous Solomon Islands, State of Fear takes the reader on a rollercoaster thrill ride, all the while keeping the brain in high gear.

5 of 5 If I could give 6 stars!!!! November 2, 2010
Reviewer: Nikki C. from TX United States  
This was one of THE best written stories of conspiracy and fact-based fiction I have EVER read. The jacket summary is vague and it was only in trusting Crichton as an author that I read this book. I found myself subconsciously nodding and agreeing as the story unfolded and grew more complex. The more complex it grew, the more epiphanies I had. This book is beyond casual reading material and leaves lots upon which to reflect.

With the threat of global warming looming overhead, people are working harder to preserve our planet. But exactly WHY do we believe this? Albeit most of us are well intentioned, there is a very believable underlying agenda in this story. This book is the product of tireless research, footnotes included, and intriguing commentary that leaves so much to ponder, as well as question Mr. Crichton's personal vies on the subjects. Thankfully, he anticipated this and states his place and beliefs very clearly at the end of the book. Bravo, MC.
