Da questo romanzo il film di Richard Donner con Paul Walker, Frances O’Connor e Gerard Butler
Nel deserto dell’Arizona un uomo vaga senza meta, pronunciando parole prive di senso. Dopo ventiquattr’ore è morto e il suo corpo viene cremato dalle uniche persone che sembrano conoscerlo.
All’altro capo del mondo una squadra di archeologi è al lavoro sulle rovine di un villaggio medievale della Dordogna, dove scopre una stanza rimasta sigillata per oltre seicento anni. Ma nel quartier generale della società finanziatrice del progetto gli studiosi faranno una scoperta ancora più sorprendente: il direttore della misteriosa multinazionale ha inventato una vera macchina del tempo che, nello spericolato tentativo di ritrovare il professor Johnson, il capo della spedizione precipitato in un tunnel spaziotemporale, li proietterà in uno dei periodi più avventurosi e violenti della storia. Da quel momento i nostri eroi dovranno riuscire a sopravvivere nel bel mezzo della guerra dei Cent’anni – tra soldataglia e affascinanti castellane, assedi e cruente battaglie – per cercare di tornare sani e salvi nel ventunesimo secolo.

Timeline, Michael Crichton Timeline is a science fiction novel by American writer Michael Crichton, published in November 1999. It tells the story of a group of history students who travel to 14th-century France to rescue their professor. The book follows in Crichton's long history of combining techn Leggi tutto
Another one-star book for the "so bad it pissed me off" category. I so wanted to like this book. Up until this book I think I read nearly everything Crichton wrote. Timeline, in my opinion, had a great premise. Swashbuckler disguised as Sci-Fi. The problem I had was that Crichton tried too hard to e Leggi tutto
In the world of pseudoscience, the subject of time travel is always entertaining , fascinating and downright shall we say, fun...Imagine going back to any year, in the distant, obscure past, (reachable now )...taking a peek, looking around the corner , at the mysteries, seeing actual situations and
(3.75) This was part of my "One Week, One Shelf" challenge which helps me read books I've forgotten about. This was fun and light albeit heavy on the science at times as all of his books tend to be. I don't know how historically accurate it is but it was an entertaining time travelling book. (Okay, a Leggi tutto
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 Leggi tutto
Having enjoyed Jurassic Park, I wanted to read more Crichton. Timeline now being the second novel of he’s that I’ve read. What I found most fascinating were the complete flip between the two stories, as in Jurassic Park its about being the past being brought to the present. Whereas Timeline is very m Leggi tutto
I loved this book... and then some arse made a really crap film and the book lost some of its shine... I couldn't rid my mind of the film set and actors. I still quite like the book.
Μία πολύ ωραία περιπέτεια, η οποία δίνει μια διάσταση στα ταξίδια στο χρόνο, που δεν θα μπορούσα ποτέ να φανταστώ. Ο Crichton είχε μελετήσει πάρα πολύ καλά την κβαντική μηχανική και τον 14ο αιώνα, τον οποίο πιστεύω, μετέφερε καταπληκτικά στο βιβλίο. Τα αρνητικά που βρήκα στο κείμενο είναι ότι οι 600 Leggi tutto
