    It's 2020, and an attempted cure for AIDS has mutated into a deadlier disease, V-CIDS. The United States, under martial law, has set up "quarantine centers" in the Southwest. Searching for his gay son, Jon, media mogul Michael Barris smuggles himself into one of the centers, only to discover that it and the other centers are actually extermination camps. With a strange assortment of allies, Barris precipitates an inmates' rebellion.

    "worse than bad"
    Overall

    Hickman is good, character development and flow of the story are fine, but the production is the worst I have heard ever!!!!! The musical interludes are long and distracting.

    Nick Stone, ex-SAS, now with British Intelligence, discovers the seemingly sensless murders of fellow SAS soldier Kev Brown and his family in Washington, D.C. Only Kelly, seven-years-old, has survived, and immediately the two of them are on the run from unidentified pursuers.

    I had a hard time finishing this book and when I did there was no real end. It just leaves most things hanging. If you need something to put you to sleep this is it.

On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother.

    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.

    F says: "Did I read the same book as some of you?"
    "politically incorrect"
    Overall

    This is one of the most thought provoking books I have read in a long time. The research is just over the top. As stated in one of the other reviews, this should send all of us to the scientific journals to read for ourselves the facts. Crichton descriptions of real world environmental problems and suggestions of ways to find the answers is of course politically incorrect. This politically incorrectness I fear is why this book has a low rateing and why we will never see a movie of this outstanding work.

  • Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded, August 27, 1883

    Story
    (177)

    The legendary annihilation in 1883 of the volcano-island of Krakatoa (the name has since become a by-word for a cataclysmic disaster) was followed by an immense tsunami that killed nearly 40,000 people. Beyond the purely physical horrors of an event which has only very recently become properly understood, the eruption changed the world in more ways than could possibly be imagined. Dust swirled round the world for years, causing temperatures to plummet and sunsets to turn vivid.

    rwise says: "Great subject, great writing, great voice"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I am a big history novel buff. Having the historical facts right is important and interesting,. However delivering those fact in a coherent and interesting manner is the basics of what makes a great novel which this is not. The time line is difficult to follow, the details become overwhelming to the point you have to take notes to follow along. If you are looking for historical economic facts in minute detail, if all your pencils must be sharp and all your socks are labeled Monday through Sunday you might enjoy this book. If you are looking for a good historical novel take a pass on this one.
