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.

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.
