State of Fear

Nd 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 bes. Reread Dec 01 2014 Thought provoking controversial action packed suspenseful well researched outrageous perhaps a science fiction as well as fictional science book The plotA lawyer represents a wealthy client who is donating large amount of money to various conservation causes and gets involved in the underworld of power greed and social manipulation The discovery of a set of GPS points leads to the action packed adventures which becomes the main focus of the dramaComments State of Fear is a manuscript on the application of primary instincts onto politics industry media conservation you name it highlighting the hypocritical aspects of it all The author stresses the importance of blowing a concept out of proportion to attract attention on a planet over run by 7 billion people This book is indeed one of those efforts in itself Pro industry anti NGO s I am not interested in the scientific data used in the book which is the main focus of the anti establishment opponents to the book My personal opinion is that the author tries to expose the gross mismanagement of power greed and disinformation with which ideas are sold to the people on the planet as absolute truths by both sides of the scientific euationFrom personal experience gained over 35 years in conservation circles dealing with scientists dreamers and schemers from the highest to the lowest order as well as ordinary people living in the wilderness I agree with most of the book I was actually amazed and surprised by the information used in the book I haven t met the author don t know him from Adam but could not believe the detailed insider knowledge that he provided in the tale Another issue in the book which I agree with from experience is how the outcome of research is often than not determined by who sponsored the research A very good example is all the dietary conflicts with the research to prove both sides of the debate Margarine and Butter Remember He is accused of being a hand horse to the high and mighty of the industrial bullies which is the typical reaction of the similar big bullies in conservation The pot is accusing the kettle of being black Oh the delight of being human The end notes in the book explains the approach to the information by the author as well as an interesting informative discussion of Eugenics The latter is such a well kept secret in the world current generations will obviously stagger in horror to learn about it This book s main purposes in my humble opinion is to shock and expose encouraging euilibrium on the scale of sanity Too many supporters feel offended and threatened to react sensibly The book did not change my idea of conservation at all since we have been involved in the practical on the ground real implementation of the concepts with wards and all for 30 years But I am so happy to know that someone had the guts to rip the hornet s nest open The author stresses the importance of conservation which is an aspect of the book that is totally ignored by the opponents He is not against the dream he is against the implementation of the ambitious schemes on the natural worldThere are several examples of conservation projects which went totally horribly wrong that I can add to his list but for that I need to write a book myself and I am unable to do it as masterfully as the author The point is that any human interaction with nature have dire conseuences even in conservation It is not the industrial sector alone who make the mistakes And this is what this book is all aboutOne of the most important points in the book for me is that office bound intellectuals the dreamers and schemers of life living in cities should stop building simulated worlds in laboratories and wearing expensive labelled outdoor uniforms They should rather go live in the wild listen to the indigenous people who lived with the natural world and observed it through thousands of years Unbowed the autobiography of Wangari Maathai is an excellent book to read in this regardThe book is typical of the latest trend in writing to first write the detailed non fictional truths supported by scientific evidence the messageidea that should be promoted and then second winds an adventurous tale with a multiple number of characters into it In this instance it was done masterfully keeping the action fast and furious dramatic and devastating The book is than 600 pages of relentless criticism on the modus operandi of the conservation world even exposing the possibilities of terrorism which is also a shocking fact in reality which I can attest to I dare to say that it was a much needed effort to restore balance and thought as previously mentioned It left many Yay Sayers livid and Nay Sayers jubilant The reactions to it is almost better than the book itself Nobody wants to be caught and confronted red handed in their ignorant bliss after all The aggressive angry reactions to the book is almost comical I am aware of looking for big trouble here but I am a good sprinter so watch this space Sometimes conservation has nothing to do with nature sometimes it is about big money and big aspirations This is the core message of this book A secret that desperately needed to be aired in the open PS This is another reread for me

Michael Crichton î 8 review

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. Chrichton is superficially playing with ethical and political ideas in one of his worst novels Others weren t really good too but at least he avoided showing that he didn t do his homework when dealing with an important topicI don t know why Chrichton integrated climate change activists as a key element without doing his research and invited in this way much true criticism of that one shouldn t so superficially deal with a very complex and controversial context to boost the sales of a book especially when writing techno thrillers with a so called scientific background and not unilateral biased propaganda piecesThat s especially ironic because Chrichtons intent was to show how good and bad science works but he didn t just fail in demonstrating but used bad and wrong science himself in the book and the discussion around it as an extra Without that problem and the chronic weak spots of Chrichtons writing that are strong in this one it could have really been an entry point to a and important discussion and an entertaining mind boggling read So it s less than average nothing I would recommend and I have hardly seen such a bumbling and inept integration of bias and agenda in a fictional work he didn t even try to be subtle or manipulative just bam in your face communist witch hunt style If I want my brain to be washed I would at least wish to be ensnared and a bit courted before getting pseudo unsatisfyingly and terribly performed mind penetratedTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

    State of Fear is centered around a plot by eco terrorists to bring world attention to global warming by you guessed it blowing up half the world Yes the nonsensical plot that makes up the spine of this book leaves the rest of this skeletal narrative in the hands of a man we've rarely seen Michael Crichton political philosopher Firs
