Not since Jurassic Park has Michael Crichton given you 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 you into a realm of unexpected suspense and danger, overturning your most basic ideas of what is possible.

While listening to this book, I kept thinking this is like watching a child play with cardboard cutout dolls. The 2-dimensional characters are all alike (and none very like-able), the dialog is boring, contrived and predictable, as is the plot. Even the narrator was not that great; his accents are truly dreadful. Seriously, nothing took me by surprise. It was an obvious and boring story line from start to finish. Save your money for something entertaining.
I'm not the biggest fan of Crichton's work but have enjoyed some of it before. This book, however, is really low end. You'd seriously have to be a die-hard Crichton fan to enjoy it.
Mediocre story, sub-par reader. You could see most plot twists coming a mile away. The story line is very simplistic, the language was very common place, the characters very one dimensional. This was my first Crichten book, and this book gave me no reason to try another.
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.
