Publisher's Summary

Michael Crichton's latest novel opens on the threshold of the 21st 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 14th-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.

Fun Story

Would you listen to Timeline again? Why?

Possibly. Just to get straight the characters - plus it was fun.

What does Stephen Lang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Lang did a good job, perhaps a little "dry". Not as great as some narrators, but definitely not bad either.

Any additional comments?

I've watched the movie a few times which I actually thought was good. It was similar... but definitely different as well. I actually didn't realize this was an abridged version of the book so I am wondering what I may have missed out on. But all-in-all it was a fun book to listen to. I finished it in just a few days. It was fun comparing the book to the movie.

Typical '10' from Crichton

Would you expect anything less from the creator of Jurassic Park, Disclosure and E.R.? I was literally on the edge of my seat during the entire book. I was *wishing* that my daily commute was longer listening to this book. A couple times I just sat in the parking lot listening to Crichton's detailed and rich word selection for this action-packed thriller.
