I’m Reading: State of Fear

State of Fear

By Michael Crichton

Actually, Christine is reading this 2009 techno-thriller to me on her Kindle. As a skeptic in man-caused global warming already, I’m not learning a lot, but it is interesting. A lot of the scenes seem contrived so Crichton can demolish the prejudices and ignorance of global warming alarmists. I did like his discussion of how nature is always in flux and primeval forests probably aren’t so primeval. I imagine true believers in “climate change” will be challenged. I find most of the characters extremely cardboardy and a lot of the action less than thrilling. It’s an OK read, but definitely not the late Crichton’s best work.
