Michael Crichton sort of disappointed me with this book. It wasn’t as thrilling as his “Jurassic Park” and “Lost World”. However, this novel was good with the plot line and such. Just a slight disappointment that’s all. I’d had such high hopes for this novel, but overall time travel is a fun subject when paired up with history interactions. Its just this novel wasn’t piece of work.
