State of Fear

Posted on: October 27, 2010

About the author : Michael Crichton is known as the Father Of Techno-Thriller genre. Michael Crichton also was an American author, producer, director, and screenwriter, best know for his novel Jurassic Park, Lost World and ER television series. His literary works are usually based on the action genre and heavily feature technology and techno-thriller genre.

About the book : State of Fear is published in 2004, is a techno-thriller novel by Michael Crichton concerning eco-villans who attempt mass murder to support their views. The book contains many graphs and footnotes, and a twenty page bibliography, which have given many people the impression that the book has scientific authority, but a majority of climate scientists dispute Crichton’s science as being error-filled and distorted.

Review :Does Global Warming real exist?

The main theme of the book revolves around the Global Warming and it’s surrounding allegories. Michael Crichton this novels actual topic is ‘State Of Fear’ the people are in due to the media circus and media’s acceptance of pseudo-science. Consider for example recent news about ‘Swine Flu’, Cancer from Cell Phone radiation and off course Global Warming and Cooling. We never re think about the claims and instantly believe the media hype.  Michael Crichton points out here that the Laboratories doing the research have financial and political biases to arrive at predetermined conclusions.

Michael Crinchton did it again, like he did in ‘Jurasic Park’, ‘The Lost World’ and ‘ER’ but this time the field is environmental protection and global warming. He has done very huge amount of research to support the facts in this book. You will find many Graphs and footnotes and many references from where he got the Graphs and Notes. While reading the book, you will feel that you are reading some science journal with the story in it.

The story goes something like this, there were some bunch of ‘global warming’ enthusiasts who want to create a range of huge ‘natural disasters’ that will support their theories. There is a secret agent who want to stop the ‘natural disasters’ and try to understand what is this all about. The point here is not the story, the point is tell the readers what actually the global warming is and how government trying to keep citizens in the ‘State of Fear’.

Overall a good read not like other Crichton’s books, I recommend this book for techno-thriller fans.

Rating : 4/5.
