Horrible, horrible, unreadable stuff. Once the modern folks happen to find themselves in the Middle Ages, there are a couple of half-assed comments on how different things are for them, and about them ... Read full review

Michael Crichton is not one of my favourite writers, and this was a moment of weakness. Knowing that it was being released as a film, I got the book from the library. It is a moderately interesting ... Read full review

I'm not typically an adventure/action fan, but I saw the movie and really liked that, so, of course, I had to try the book.

Weak science, weak plotting, weak history. A good idea ruined - Crichton just about manages to retain the reader's interest, but don't look too closerly Read full review

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