Timeline by Michael Crichton

I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this one before because I first read it a long, long time ago and have dived back into it a handful of times since. It’s one of those long standing favourites, a bit of comfort reading when you’re not ready for something new. Michael Crichton is a firm favourite of mine, and this being a time travel book, it’s bound to be up there with the best. I love the writing, that it starts out quite sedately albeit with the intriguing mystery, and gradually ramping up as things get hectic and time gets tight.

Michael Crichton died yesterday, and I don’t think I’d be lying if I said he was my favourite author of all time. I didn’t even know he was ill, which is so unusual in this day and age that it makes me like him even more. Obviously the usual applies, with thoughts and feelings going out to his family, but on a purely selfish level, I’m sad that there will be no more books.

A good day made even better

Although not a day to be curled up inside, I felt like watching some films. I thought instead of wasting the weather, I could manoeuvre the television and sit in the sunlight. Now, you should all know that I’m quite a big Queen fan, if not you obviously haven’t been reading this journal for very long. I was recommended to watch Highlander, the film which ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’, my favourite song ever, is famous for.
