Michael Crichton's new novel opens on the threshold of the twenty-first century. It is a world of exploding advances on the frontiers of technology. Information moves instantly between two points, without wires or networks. Computers are built from single molecules. Any moment of the past can be actualized -- and a group of historians can enter, literally, life in fourteenth-century
feudal France.


Imagine the risks of such a journey.


Not since Jurassic Park has Michael Crichton given us such a magnificent adventure. Here, he combines a science of the future -- the emerging field of quantum technology -- with the complex realities of the medieval past. In a heart-stopping narrative, Timeline carries us into a realm of unexpected suspense and danger, overturning our most basic ideas of what is possible.

Sobering cautionary story.

A history lesson and a short course in quantum physics all wrapped up in a gripping, accessible story! An absolute favorite. The movie does not do the book justice.

Fun, very plot-driven, reasonably well thought through. Science fiction for non-science-fiction readers.

Not the best one of his works, but it was mostly enjoyable. Got carried away at times with history explanation, but overall it held my attention and had a fun ending.
