    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    I've never entered my own review before...read a lot of them before I purchase a book, though. While I enjoyed the book, I will be hesitant to purchase a book narrated by this reader in the future. I don't know whether it was a problem with where his microphone was placed or what, but I could hear every swallow, licking of lips, even heard laughing in the background on one occasion...very distracting! Very poor recording (or, as my husband pontificated, maybe too good). Where is Scott Brick when you need him...I've never heard him swallow and I've listened to almost every book he's ever narrated. People pay good money for these listens every month...clean up the narration...Shame!!!!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    OK, so I've never been motivated before to write a review (hard to please? Maybe). This was one incredible novel, fascinating, tearful, joyful. I'm a fan of King anyway, but this was way over the top of "excellent" and no gore...for those of you who avoid him because of that. Reader was outstanding, I listen while I work, so I got a lot done since I couldn't stop!!!

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."

    Overall

    I've never reviewed a book before (and have been a member for a long, long time). To say this novel is good is a gross understatement. It is exciting, riveting, and, best of all, thought provoking. Since I listen while I do housework, sometimes I drift...not here. Truly captures the listener from word one and never lets go! I've always enjoyed Stephen King's novels immensely and this is his best to date. Character development is outstanding (very important to me to "identify"). So glad Mr. King didn't give up on it. Raul Esparza is a fabulous narrator and this is a premium recording. Absolutely worth every minute invested!
