Inhaltsangabe

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.

entertaining

This book is quite entertaining if you don't mind some bloody beheading and other violent acts going on. Very detailed and gripping descriptions of medieval time and exciting action (sometimes almost a little too much - I think I would have enjoyed a little less pressure in order to enjoy the detailed description of the medieval setting more).
I found the beginning a little though-going. Ridiculously simplified explanations of complex physical phenomena (and their implications) were mixed with detailed (and rather boring) description of practices in historical research. But once the actual time-traveling comes into play, the novel becomes entertaining.

Wenn Geschichte auf Sci-Fi trifft

Timeline ist typisch für Michel Crichton. Wissenschaftlicher als die meisten Sci-Fi Bücher, wie fast alle seine Bücher. Mit dem Thema Zeitreisen und dem Spätmittelalter, wer also beide Themen mag sollte eventuell mal in dieses Buch reinhören.

A Michael Crichton Classic!

This Book is as unique as only Michael Crichton could have written. Hard Science and imaginative speculations braided together with likable characters and a story that won't let you go until you finished it. With some small twists and a fitting ending, it is a very good story, even overlooking a small logical error by the author.

The narator is fitting for the setting, and makes the characters easily distinctable by voice. The only problem I have is with the recording itself: Sometimes between Chapters, there are silent pauses up to 30 seconds, in which you will wonder if your phone has crashed or if your headphones died.

If you have a historical interest and like Technothriller, this book is for you.

Fantastic book!

Timeline is another exciting book by Michael Crichton. The start of the story is very fast, then it has a lack of suspense, but just very briefly. The story develops very good and it's so thrilling after a while, that you just can't put it down.
Enjoy this must-have!
