This was the first book I have read by crichton and it was amazing. Read it back in high school and when I was done I felt like the main character was someone I could actually know and have a conversation with. Loved it. Highly recommend to anyone interested in crichton.

This book reflects Crighton's ability to research issues and place them in a believable and entertaining story. It's a bit obvious at points that he is preaching on an issue of American culture: how we are losing our country's business to Japan. It raises the brow, making the reader take a philisophical view on how our country chooses to strive. I recommend this book those who likes an intelligent, insightful read, as well as anyone who enjoys a clever suspense.

This book has so many twists and turns. I wouldn't pick it up unless you plan on staying up all night at the edge of your bed! I'd tell anyone to read this book.

Rising Sun is good. It could have been a lot better if Crichton had not written so many economic business plans. In parts, he almost turns paragraphs into essays detailing how the Japanese are better at business than America. The mystery plot is well done and complex, but at times takes a backseat to Crichton's explanations of why the Japanese were destroying us economically when the book was written. Michael Crichton has far better books than Rising Sun. The book's only saving grace (and it is a big one) is the complex and well written mystery. Crichton's skill at writing such things shines through, but the both anti and pro Japanese business explanations marrs it badly. In conclusion? He's got far better books.
