Time travel not too far away!
by saxunltd on December 10, 2009Well, as a movie it just didn't work! But the book is lots of fun and has a good premise. The author's fascination with the 14th-century, due in no small part to renowned historian Barbara Tuchman's amazing book: "A Distant Mirror" is both what makes the "Timeline" book fun, and why the movie didn't work. Folks probably went to the movie thinking they were going to learn something about the possibilities of time travel, and they didn't. It was much more a fish-out-of-water story but with too many characters, and too many of them rather dull, and not nearly enough romance./Also, I loved Dr. Crichton's bibliography at the end of the book.
