Book Review ofTimeline by Michael
- â€¦alert and ready for anything. This was a different world, with different
rules. And for the first time, he was in it. Totally in it. -
The brutality of the real world.
- something was missing, or out of place. Finally, he said, "What's wrong?"
She laughed. "Oh, that," she said. "Listen." Chris stood silently for a

breeze in the trees. But other than that . . . "I don't hear anything."
"That's right," Gomez said. "It upsets some people when they first arrive.
There's no ambient noise here: no radio or TV, no airplanes, no machinery, no
passing cars. In the twentieth century, we're so accustomed to hearing sound all

Ispeak of a types of people who are"Empathy Impaired," or have
no empathy,unsensitive and uncaring.
I would say Michael Crichton, is "Empathy Personified," anybody who can
empathize with people in another timeline has meapplauding.
Movies is teaching a new generation the history of the planet, if we are
going to wander off on this tangent, and we have no choice, I want a person like
Michael to tell the story.
