It was a very interesting book. I liked the combination of physics with history. I generally love history oriented fiction and this is one such book. The author has maintained the pace all through the book. Enjoyed reading it.

I personally liked the book a great deal. I chose at as a sci-fi/fantasy book for my English class and when I read it, I just loved it. I was interested with the "time travel", multivers theory, and the quantuam technology. Maybe is hould be a physicist!!!

If you think that this book explains quantum mechanics then your are being

Awesome book. Very gripping and it keeps you interested in learning about the Multiverse, quantum physics, etc. All in all an awesome read. considering I am reading it in 2009 and actually finding it believable, I wonder in 1999 when ppl read it what must have been the response!

Yet another Crichton masterpiece. Just can't put it down once you've started and a gem for all science and history enthusiasts. It's incredible how he can mingle medieval history with high end next generation Quantum mechanics, but then that's Crichton for you. Read full review
