My impression of Michael Crichton has always been that he brought a certain amount of technical expertise to his writings, along with a level of integrity, that caused them to raise to a level above most other thrillers and similar works. Reading State of Fear, I found myself confounded by the point of view that began to dominate, that of skepticism regarding the global warming and environmental points of view that I had always more or less taken for granted.

State of Fear is a 2004 techno-thriller novel by Michael Crichton, in which eco-terrorists plot mass murder to publicize the danger of global warming. Despite being a work of fiction, the book contains many graphs and footnotes, two appendices, and a 20-page bibliography in support of Crichton's beliefs about global warming. Many climate scientists, science journalists, environmental groups, and science advocacy organisations dispute Crichton's views on the science as being error-filled and distorted.

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

This is Michael 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, taking the reader on a rollercoaster 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.


For those of you who enjoy Michael Crichton novels this one is a must read. The story is, naturally, fiction. The weather/climate science data illustrated in this book is real-world. Michael Crichton is a master at blending fictional stories with futuristic technology that is either factually plausible, or already authentic and proven technology. In the case of this book he did his homework meticulously and backed up his storyline with real-world data. He provides website addresses and other data that allows the ready to check and verify/validate the data used in the book.
The book addresses a current real-world issue, global warming. The storyline of this book is written is such a manner as to give the reader a prospective on both sides of the issue; that is to say the position that man's actions are the actual cause and effect of global warming as opposed to the position that global warming is, in fact, a natural process in which man cannot stop and has no control over. After reading this book you will, more than likely, develop an alternate perspective on the subject as opposed to what you currently believe.
Does for Climate Change what Jurassic Park did for genetics. The story itself is pretty entertaining, but as I read the book I got more and more interested in what Michael Crichton's author avatar thought about climate change and just science and the future in general. The book even sort of transcends climate change itself and becomes about how humans think and how often we fail to adapt to new information that becomes available to us. The book was completed 4 years before he died and contains a lot of insight about how the author thought and what he thought the future would be like. It opens with 3 speeches the author has given about climate change and the environment and they were just as interesting for me as the plot of the book. The book has been attacked as a diatribe against environmentalism, but everything is accompanied by a source or a referenced graph and the message of the work is not outright dismissal of global warming, but caution against the sort of fear induced panic that seems to plague even mundane issues today. The author's tone is quite patient and reasonable rather than hostile or the assured moral superiority that is common with some environmental groups. The book is also quite hard to dismiss in importance as the strategy outlined in the book where every single weather event is claimed as proof of global warming whether it is a flood or a drought is immediately cited as proof of global warming has become a reality in the years since this book was published. Ultimately the book is for people who want to think and analyze their way through things rather than go along with the herd in a state of fear. It is probably the best book to read for the reader to say goodbye to Michael Crichton and his unique style of writing.
I use to read all his books, don't know how I missed this one. Call me a "Denier" but I have my doubts about man made climate change & this book just adds to my skepticism. I know the time frame was several years ago & to be PC the comments at the end of the footnotes try to make you believe Crichton would have written it differently today, but I don't buy it. When you look at his earliest writings, you see where he was spot on many things in the furture. Great book, lots to think on.
I loved the pace of the story, the intriguing plot, the interesting cast of characters, and the discussion about our earth, it's resources, and how to protect them. Michael Crichton has quite a way with words and the ability to make you think way beyond the plot. This book was quite informative and vastly entertaining. I would highly recommend it to all. Now I'm going to view the complete list of Michael Crichton's books to see if there are any that I've missed reading. Do yourself a favor and read this one you won't be disappointed.
Michael Crichton was an accomplished writer and intellectual, somewhat of an iconoclast and philosopher. I had read Jurassic Park, Timeline, Congo and The Andromeda Strain, and all have a subtext concerning scientific fallacy, the misuse of our scientific knowledge.
Plus each have common sense truths, e.g. inherited wealth does give the wisdom to use it well, much as magic martial arts abilities do not give the wisdom to use them well.
Here the gabby university professor talks of "cause money" being spent frivolously when it could be used for good around the world.
I agree the characters are allegorical and the themes can be read on multiple levels, really worth a read or a reread.
I mean, come on, this is Michael Crichton. If you like any of his work, you will like this one as well. If you are not familiar with Crichton (really?), then this is a good place to start. (Or really, lots of others too).
For those not familiar, this book is fast paced, there are lots of characters, but the important ones are well developed. The pacing is fast, and it requires you to pay attention or else suffer being surprised later in the book. This book takes on an important topic in current events (Global Warming), and unlike most fiction, includes many pages of bibliographic information as well as the author's take on much of the material he read and studied for background on this book. It definitely made me want to do some more personal research.
Using actual verifiable data Crichton both entertains and questions commonly believed notion of climate change. When you reach the end of the novel you will have been entertained, challenged, and perhaps find yourself rethinking your beliefs of widely held belief.
