State of Fear

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Michael Crichton

Narrated By: John Bedford Lloyd

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: December 2004

Duration: 18 hours 19 minutes


In Paris, a physicist dies after performing a laboratory experiment for a beautiful visitor. In the jungles of Malaysia, a mysterious buyer purchases deadly cavitation technology, built to his specifications.In Vancouver, a small research submarine is leased for use in the waters off New Guinea.And in Tokyo, an intelligence agent tries to understand what it all means.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.

    A good mix of science fact and action fiction. Well narrated and engaging. This has thrown a whole new perspective on global warming for me, with a fresh perspective on media 'information'.

    Excellant fiction, with a generous portion of fact included. Illustrative plot that is also entertaining. If you like this book, I would recommend The Rational Optimist, by Matt Ridley

  • Bruno Cruz

    A very Good, and interesting book. I really recommend it. The book deserves to be read, and the ecological perspective discussed.

  • Craig Temczuk

    I really liked this book. you travel all over, trying to solve problems, a lot of technology and specific data which I really liked. and I liked the narrator. I don't think anyone would be sorry they "read" this book.
