Publisher's Summary

Michael Crichton's 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 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.

    "Boring, too long by half"

    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.

    "Timeline - Don't give up on it!"

    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!

    "timeline"

    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.

    "Timeline"

    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.

    "Very good!"

    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!

    "Crichton finally did it"

    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.

    "Excellent, Finally Counter to Enviromental Wackos"

    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!
