In an Arizona desert a man wanders in a daze, speaking words that make no sense. Within twenty-four hours he is dead, his body swiftly cremated by his only known associates. Halfway around the world, archaeologists make a shocking discovery at a medieval site. Suddenly they are swept off to the headquarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology. Now this group is about to get a chance not to study the past but to enter it.

    " This quarter I read Timeline by Michael Chrichton. It is a compelling story of a group of historians working on a castle site in France. The research site that the historians work on is funded by a company called ITC. One day, a representative from ITC comes to inspect the site, but reveals that she knows something about the site that even the historians did not know. This lead the leader of the research team "the professor" to become suspicious and then demanded to go back to ITC's facility to learn how they gathered such information. The next day, the team continued to look for artifacts and came across a rock, "the parchment was identical in size to the others in the stack, but instead of dense writing in Latin or Old French, this one had only two words, scrawled in plain English: HELP ME 4/7/1357"(106). Considering that the English language was completely different in the 1300's this seemed as though it was an obvious fake. However, when the team ran tests on it, it was in fact 600 years old, with the professors handwriting. This book is extremely suspenseful and and will have you on the edge of your seat every minute you read. With twists, turns, and mysteries to solve, this book never seems to dull. Chrichton masterfully gets you attached to the characters. This book will have you travelling through time, back into the medieval period, and shooting forward into the future of science and technology. I highly recommend Timeline to fans of adventure, science fiction, mystery, or just good books in general! "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was pure action from start to finish. I love time travel books, and this one was more exciting than most. Michael Crichton writes so well that he makes me want to read every book he has written. I have read several of his books and loved every one of them. I would recommend this to sci-fi fans and anyone who loves excitement. I loved the scenes in the 1300s. They were so realistic and my favorite. Great job! I am just sorry that Mr. Crichton won't be writing any more books. Rest in Peace! "

    " DNF. I've tried to keep reading this book and I just can't. Don't much like time travel books and honestly, I liked the movie better. "
