Michael Crichton ½ 3 summary

Timeline review Ò 103 E a shocking discovery at a medieval site Suddenly they are swept off to the headuarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology Now this group is about to get a chance. The next stop in my time travel marathon November being Science Fiction Month was Timeline Michael Crichton s 1999 thriller Crichton was not what I think of as a prolific writer he published sixteen novels in his lifetime under this own name beginning in 1969 with The Andromeda Strain Perhaps the movies produced from most of these titles make it seem like Crichton was everywhere I d like to think that maybe the author devoted the time between novels conducting backbreaking research With Timeline he certainly lays the groundwork all other time travel tales should build fromThe story takes off wondrously in northern Arizona of the present day with a couple roaming the Navajo Indian reservation in their Mercedes The wife is in search of authentic handcrafted rugs and as her husband drives further away from civilization tension mounts An old man appears on the road out of nowhere and falls to the ground as the Mercedes passes The couple take the incoherent man to a hospital where he dies of an apparent cardiac arrest A Navajo police officer and a surgeon discover the old man is a missing materials physicist working for ITC Research in Black Rock NMThe cop and the surgeon note strange things about the dead physicist An MRI exam shows arteries and muscle issue that appear offset perhaps a glitch in the imaging software He was carrying a diagram for the Monastery of Sainte Mere in France as well as a plastic marker which ITC claims was an ID tag What was he doing wandering in the desert These uestions concern the 38 year old founder of International Technology Research billionaire physicist Robert Doniger who dispatches the company s legal counsel to southwestern France where an ITC archeological dig is taking place on the Dordogne RiverDoniger is anxious for the Dordogne group led by Yale history professor Edward Johnston to initiate reconstruction of the site which in addition to the monastery includes the fortresses of Castlegard and La Roue burned to the ground after Sir Oliver de Vannes lost them to French forces in 1357 some say when a traitor opened a secret passage While Johnston assistant history professor Andre Marek physicist David Stern and grad students Chris Hughes and Kate Erickson have taken their time reassembling the ruins they re puzzled by the precise nature of the architectural data coming from ITCWhile Johnston returns to Black Rock to find out what s going on his team make an alarming discovery an eyeglass lens that s been in the dirt for over 600 years and a message in parchment that appears to be in the professor s handwriting It reads HELP ME 471357 Marek Stern Hughes and Erickson are whisked to Black Rock where Doniger s second in command explains that while time travel is not possible ITC has utilized uantum physics to pioneer a type of space travel sending observers through a wormhole to another part of the multiverse where 1357 France is happening right nowDoniger explains that while ITC has been sending ex soldiers into the multiverse and retrieving them for two years rules prohibit them from stepping into the world of the past Professor Johnston apparently broke this rule and has disappeared Marek a physically fit specimen with training in Occitan language as well as swordplay agrees to join the rescue as do Erickson and reluctantly Hughes Stern has reservations about the safety of the uantum technology as well Doniger s promise that with two trained soldiers for protection the group should be able to locate the professor and return within two hours Stern remains behind to observeWhen the author of Westworld and Jurassic Park tells you that an exciting new technology that will change mankind is perfectly safe Doniger envisions global historical sites that can send observers into the past and of course engineers have worked out all the kinks you not only walk away you run Timeline did remind me of a certain dinosaur run amok thriller to its credit as well as its detriment Timeline is impeccably researched I know next door to nothing about uantum physics but Crichton has such immense game that from beginning to end I was convinced that he knew what the hell he was talking about Crichton devotes awesome attention to just how a tech company might send a human being across time and retrieve them The team he assembles for this mission is expertly considered as well historians physicists and soldiers for hire whose combat training turns out to be antithetical to exploring historyThe seuence which leads to the rescue party being stranded in 1357 occurs at roughly the same moment the T Rex attack occurs in Jurassic Park and is almost as memorable with existential crisis sudden violence and unbelievable shock I also liked the way Crichton utilized history with the Hundred Years War England and France s bloody rivalry and even women s rights playing important functions in the story The author examines how each character is unprepared for some aspect of the 14th century whether the speed of swordplay or the pleasing aromas of the castles From an anthropological standpoint what would a team of historians experience if they traveled to 1357 France Timeline has no eual Technically the novel is flawless Dramatically the development of characters leaves a lot to be desired Marek Hughes and Erickson are given only the barest traits The Hot Dog The Chicken The Athlete The Professor is well The Professor Doniger is The Evil Billionaire While I could accept traveling through the multiverse one thing I found difficult to buy were the number of times the protagonists escape certain death It seemed like Hughes was nearly killed every five pages Erickson runs for her life every ten pages The 14th century is an age that Crichton illustrates as being overrun by death and yet these two rejects from a Gap commercial somehow keep surviving There is no logical reason for it Hughes and Erickson leap from one pitfall to the next because the plot dictates itThe novel wraps up in a predictable and rather glib fashion that I didn t care much for Then again each of these criticisms could be leveled against Jurassic Park with characters who force little outcome in the story and survive much longer than they had any reason to Crichton is not breaking new ground here If you re looking for strong characters and dialogue to match the technological coolness you ll probably hate this If you loved his past work you ll probably love this I m giving it three and a half stars rounded up to four stars Timeline surpassed expectations in part due to how poorly received the 2003 film adaptation was Gerard Butler Frances O Connor and Paul Walker starred as Marek Erickson and Hughes and may have dialed in performances due to how gorgeous but wooden their characters were supposed to be The pleasures of the novel are in the anthropological discoveries happening in the minds of the characters none of which translate to film very well The physical action sieges swordfighting foot chases was filmed with much imagination in The Lord of the Rings trilogy Triff mich um Mitternacht Valentine Vendetta #1 research With Timeline he certainly

Timeline review Ò 103 In an Arizona desert a man wanders in a daze speaking words that make no sense Within twenty four hours he is dead his body swiftly cremated by his only known associates Halfway around the world archaeologists mak. This was the first Crichton novel I read which is probably to his advantage I knew it was fiction so I was able to pick it up and cruise right through it Had I started on The Andromeda Strain or Airframe I might have thought he was a non fiction writer and not given him a proper chance As it turns out I was instantly hooked and began to furiously and ferociously collect everything I could get my hands on by Michael Crichton Now I ve read most of his novels and have met him in person see photos Big fan doodzAnyway this is a time travel story which automatically bumps it up a point in the storyline rating for me But it s not your average time travel tale It s very detail oriented and you learn uickly that some of the characters have an agenda deeper than just wanting to go back and visit the medieval times The characters are rock solid and believable and the story is a great rendition of a many times told favorite Who doesn t want to go back in time to the 1500s and check out some castles Some knights doing battle I know I doI know this was made into a movie a couple of years ago but I haven t seen it I ve heard it didn t do anywhere close to as well as the book did and did it no justice either I ll probably rent it someday just because I m sentimental and I like seeing my favorite characters come to life I d recommend this for all you time travel junkies out there It has some elements that are surprisingly powerful for being so overtly subtle It s a very attractive read and well worth your time
