I found this book very long and boring. Everything that could go wrong to the characters, did, over and over and over again. I skimmed through the second half of the book and listened to the last chapter and I don't feel that I missed anything.
I downloaded this book and after the first 3 hours I just didn't think I could really get into it. A friend encouraged me to go back. I started it again and then I couldn't put it down. You definetely have to be ready to immerse yourself into this period but once immersed, you don't want the story to end. I even found a tear or two rolling down my cheek at the end..! This book was so very enjoyable that I then rushed out to watch the DVD!
perth to broome ..long distance roadtrain driver
wow.wow.wow. I listen to audio books constantly while driving long distances....and this book was hard to stop listening too, I had to get to the finish...it was so enjoyable. I think it will be hard for other books to live up to this one. Very discriptive,it was like being there. I will be listening to it again...over the next few weeks.
I really enjoyed this story and recommend it to others. Good suspense and I liked the characters.
One of the better books that I have had a chance to listen to. I only listen to books while driving and I found myself wanting to stay in the vehilce to finish this book. It is complete absorbing and one that I would highly recommend to all fans of science fiction.
I had a very large problem with this book, i couldn't turn it off!!
As other customers have said, it's non-stop action and they arn't wrong. Highly recomend any sci-fi fan to listen to this one as soon as possible!
After reading all but one of Michael Crichton's novels, I have been left with only one complaint: the man doesn't know how to end a story. He seems so involved with this own story and he involves the reader so well that neither wants to quit. But in "TIMELINE" he brings closure to the story in the best of ways. I commend him and recommend this novel to all.
I enjoyed the story, the narration, and the useful perspective on the whole enviromental wacko movement/ global warming hoax. It was great to hear a good story interweaved into such devisive issues and witness the courage of an popular author to address them despite the sway of the popular media/drive-bys/sheep. Rush Limbaugh recommended this book and I hate to tell you liberals, he was right on again!
