Brought - and read - in desperation whilst on holiday where I had run out of books (gasp!).[return][return]I was quickly disappointed and dissatisfied with the story and characters and I remember skimming much of the book as a result. This book (along with "airframe") are the books that finally put me off reading Crichton forever.

Crichton is incredibly popular - wch is enuf to make me suspicious of him immediately! Nonetheless, I found a few bks by him for a dollar or so & decided to read them. He's prolific, he's directed 10 movies & 12 others have been made based on his plots. I've liked some of the movies. SO, even though he's popular, maybe he's really a smart guy, eh? Nah.. "Timeline" is a time travel novel. There's nothing new here, for dedicated readers of SF like myself this is just another generic variation on the theme. Crichton is a competent (or even excellent) formula writer, he's got the generic thrill-ride down, he slots in the latest scientific possibilities, but he's completely unoriginal both in the writing style & in the content. He's probably a little 'better' than Dean Koontz. Still, I liked it ok, it wasn't until I got to "State of Fear" that I started to despise the guy. More about that later. ( )

Story feels as if it goes very fast in some places, a bit disjointed in others, still a good story. But I love stories with good fleshed out characters, and this book didn't have one character that I cared about. The were flat, all of them, we didn't get to know their inner feelings. ( )

One of Crichton's better books, at least if you ignore the vast amounts of infodumping (in both narrative and dialogue). I probably enjoyed this one because the novelty of traveling back in time to a historical period of academic interest speaks to me. ( )

This is a terrific piece of adventure fiction. I am glad that I read it before I saw its movie...which was adequate as an adaptation but unsatisfying in its simplicity. ( )

''Timeline'' ends with Doniger delivering a caustic denunciation of the ''mania for entertainment'' that pervades American culture, in which jaded consumers increasingly seek an ''authenticity'' of experience that not even the most sophisticated ''artifice'' can offer. (Doniger wants to market time-travel as the ultimate amusement-park ride.) The irony, of course, is that few entertainment products are as artificial as Crichton's own work. Like shiny windup toys, his novels are diverting -- they're manically entertaining. (I gobbled up ''Timeline'' in a single sitting.) But like anything mechanical, they just end up repeating themselves. Whatever time Crichton is in, he's always writing the same book.

Yet the truth was that the modern world was invented in the Middle Ages. Everything from the legal system, to nation-states, to reliance on technology, to the concept of romantic love had first been established in medieval times. These stockbrokers owed the very notion of a market economy to the Middle Ages. And if they didn't know that, then they didn't know the basic facts of who they were. Why they did what they did. Where they had come from. Professor Johnston often said that if you didn't know history, you didn't know anything. You were a leaf that didn't know it was part of a tree.
Today, everybody expects to be entertained, and they expect to be entertained all the time. Business meetings must be snappy, with bullet lists and animated graphics, so executives aren't bored. Malls and stores must be engaging, so they amuse as well as sell us. Politicians must have pleasing video personalities and tell us only what we want to hear. Schools must be careful not to bore young minds that expect the speed and complexity of television. Students must be amused – everyone must be amused, or they will switch: switch brands, switch channels, switch parties, switch loyalties. This is the intellectual reality of Western society at the end of the century.

In other centuries, human beings wanted to be saved, or improved, or freed, or educated. But in our century, they want to be entertained. The great fear is not of disease or death, but of boredom. A sense of time on our hands, a sense of nothing to do. A sense that we are not amused.
