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.

    Story
    "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.

    First experience of arriving in the future, the stillness.

    "Exciting, refreshing novel"

    Great novel, keeps you on the edge, well written, excellent narrator. I enjoy reading about quantum mechanics and it's latest advances. This book, although fiction, gives the reader a slight introduction to this exciting science. Great book, it contains every thing: romance, love, hate, patriotism, betrayal, loyalty, science, and our everlasting contribution to humanity - War!

    "Favorite Crichton Book"

    I read the book AND listened to it, it's that good. A dash of French history, medicine, physics, mystery, and adventure. Highly recommended.

    "Technology and Ponies"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they like time travel and medieval stuff then this book will float your 1324 battleship.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My roommate and I listened to it while on a road trip. I fell asleep somewhere during the explanation of quantum physics, so you'd have to ask him.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Lang – was your favorite?

    Anyone who spoke in medieval English.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No... BUT... if you want to get some crazy good nap time in on a boring roadtrip this is perfect (especially if the driver digs it, because that is the person who needs to be awake and all.)


    Any additional comments?

    I would say I slept for AT LEAST 80% of this book, but from what I heard it was pretty good.

    "I love this book BUT..."

    because it is abridged there is major parts of the story missing. I have read this book before and had a trip to take so I thought I would listen, well get the full version. It is better.

    "So-so"

    I thought this book was interesting and thought provoking, but it was not what I had thought it would be. I am not into time travel. Oh well, I listened to it anyway. :)
