Leave it to Michael Crichton to combine plausible quantum physics and medieval history into a page-turning tale of adventure. The reader finds him/herself with one foot in the New Mexico desert of the 20th century and another in southwestern France of the 14th--and without any of the 'disorientation' one would feel at the hands of a less competent author. A rousing good read, even if the characters are a little too 'typecast' and the science just a twinge 'suspect'.

Great page-turner! Crichton makes the medieval world come alive, while explaining science and technology in a very interesting way. A group of historians are able to travel back in time, and end up fighting for their lives. It held my attention completely.

great book. bad movie. well explained theories that even me, a person who hates and is bad at math, understood clearly. good story that really draws you in. you feel for the characters. Crichton's usual good stuff!

Stargate-like sci-fi and history / time exploration. Time travel with a twist. Good 6 hours of listening on 5 CDs.

well, i can say one thing for Crichton: he's consistent. i don't think i've read a book of his that wasn't at least entertaining. this is one of his minorly entertaining books. i think this is because the science of time travel is not so interesting, and takes a backdoor to the medieval research. it was a decent book, with some good characters, but not one i'd want to read again.
