What the Critics Say

2005 Audie Award Nominee, Fiction (Abridged)
"State of Fear is one of Crichton's best because it's as hard to pigeonhole as greenhouse gas but certainly heats up the room." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Michael Crichton's new, can't-put-it-down novel is a first-of-a-kind thriller - a fast-paced adventure based on the notion that a current widespread fear is baseless." (Forbes)

State of Fear - A Refreshing Point of View

This book was one of the few that I have listened to several times.

It is refreshing to hear a different side to the environmental scare tactics that we have been flodded with since the end of the cold war.

I would say that if you are conservative, you will love it. If not, you may have trouble accepting the results of Crichton's research (which are documented and referenced).

Very well written

I enjoyed this book so much that it was hard to put down before I finished it. It was very well researched and it presented a different version of the current global warming scare.
