TimelineI finally managed to finish another book. I don’t know why that seems so hard to do lately. This time it was Timeline by Michael Crichton. I’ve never read one of his books before, but I vaguely remember hearing about this one when it came out.

Timeline book is about time travel, which can be an interesting but headache–inducing topic in science fiction. There are some academics involved in an archaeological dig. One member of the team gets trapped in the past and sends a message for help. It’s up to the remaining members of the team to go back and help him. I enjoyed the first part of this book more than the rest. Once they went back in time was when I started to not like it as much. It seems like that should have been the most enjoyable part of the book for me. There were times where I didn’t realize what I had just read and didn’t care enough to go back and re-read it. What I do remember was good. I think I’ll watch the movie too.
