Description of the book, taken from wikipedia.org
" Timeline is a science fiction novel by Michael Crichton that was published in November 1999. It tells the story of historians who travel to the Middle Ages thanks to the work of a brilliant yet unprincipled entrepreneur who plans to use the technology to enhance historical tourist attractions. The book follows in Crichton's long history of combining technical details and action in his books, addressing quantum physics and time travel. "
Review: Great book! I think I have a literary crush on Andre Marek, one of the main characters in this book. This book was very detailed and much more extensive than the movie, of course.
