MOBI ☆ State of Fear ✓ Michael Crichton

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
