I just read State of Fear and although I liked it, I feel I would have liked it even more if not for all the background information that Crichton goes through. Sometimes my eyes would glaze over with a lot of the longer factual information. But the man is thorough. He even had info graphs included.
I've started State Of Fear about 3 times and I just can't get into it. Odd as I usually love his stuff. I preferred Prey. I do think that lately though, his books have been written with a movie in mind - scenes written specifically to look great on film.
Anyone read Tess Gerritson's Gravity? That's kind of near-sf and I thought it was amazing. Not tried anything else of her's yet.
