I may try it again before the movie because the premise is a hoot, but gosh he is a bad writer.It's not that Crichton's a bad writer, he's just more interested in plot than character. He's like Agatha Christie -- he can come up with the most awesome, twisty, intricate stories but peoples them with cyphers. Oh, well. As far as I'm concerned this isn't a fatal flaw because he's a terrific storyteller one way or the other. I'm re-reading The Andromeda Strain right now and it's just as good as I remember.
Anyway, Timeline looks interesting. Even if it does star Paul Walker...
