Started: 2/5/14 Finished: 2/12/14 Been getting into the medieval time period a lot these days, and this time it was by accident. The science fiction/historical past fusion created by Michael Crichton in this book was exceptionally well done. Exciting, thought provoking and a great story all rolled into one. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Sometime in the future, a group of students is studying an archaeological site in France when the professor in charge disappears. While uncovering 600-year-old documents from the remains of a monastery, they discover a note dated April 7, 1357, and written in the professor’s hand that says “Help me.” Three people then embark on a journey back in time to rescue the professor. The rest of the story is a heart-pounding adventure in 14th-century France.
Timeline by Michael Crichton -- “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.”
