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 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!
I couldn't finish this audiobook...such poor character development!! I did not care about these characters. In fact, I am so turned off by this book I will probably NEVER read (listen to) another Crighton book again. YUK and then some.
I could not enjoy the book because of the constant cussing, especially using the Lord's name as a curse word. I find it very objectionable, and wish I had not wasted my money. I wish there were a way to get a refund.Did not even get through first hour, I don't think.
The story without the cursing and using Jesus' name as a curse.
Couldn't enjoy it.
Disappointment and anger
For me it is not the genre, but the skill of the writer to bring in a picture, an emotion, to make me laugh or cry, or fade into their words
It's starts a little slow...but be patient it is worth the wait. Meet interesting characters and be introduced to future technology that might, or might not, be probable.
A eccentric group of historians get the chance of a lifetime - the chance to visit the time they have studied from books and archeological sites for years. Of course, it is not that simple. They must save their beloved Professor and return in a scant 36 hours. But that is without all of the problems which pop up...
