#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this thriller from the author of Jurassic Park, Sphere, and Congo, a group of young scientists travel back in time to medieval France on a daring rescue mission that becomes a struggle to stay alive.
“Compulsive reading . . . brilliantly imagined.”—Los Angeles Times
In an Arizona desert, a man wanders in a daze, speaking words that make no sense. Within twenty-four hours he is dead, his body swiftly cremated by his only known associates. Halfway around the world, archaeologists make a shocking discovery at a medieval site. Suddenly they are swept off to the headquarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology. Now this group is about to get a chance not to study the past but to enter it. And with history opened up to the present, the dead awakened to the living, these men and women will soon find themselves fighting for their very survival—six hundred years ago.

User reviews about this book
The Last Chapter was Crichton
Found myself skimming far more that I should have for a book from the middle of his publications.
BEST BOOK EVER
I love love love this book. I picked it up one day in my science class and i couldn't put it down. I have to admit, the end had me a little teared up. Hamilton's "History Has Its Eyes On You" was playing in my head at the end. Definitely worth the money.
It was a good, fast paced book. A lot of twists that I didn't think could be untwisted but she did it!!
One of my favorite books
By Robin Frankel
By one of my favorite authors.
Beat book ever!!
I love this book so much!!! I hate to read and I'm obsessed with this book! When I'm not reading it its all I think about! ... I'm also a slow reader lol... I watched the movie first before I even knew it was a book, I loved the movie cuz I loved the concept of it but when I read the book OMGGGG it was nothing like the movie! Not one scene is in the movie... So I don't compare the two I basically treat the book like a completely different thing from the movie...
I love this book! Wish it never ended!
By Stop! Ban Hammer Time
I read this book in a night, and absolutely loved every second of it! Thrilling page-turner with fabulous characters and plot (the science is a little iffy though, haha). I'm definitely going to be reading this again!
My favorite of all his books. And, yes, sadly, the movie was really that bad....
Excellent, riveting story!
I have read this book twice (which I never do) but it is surely one of my favorites. Like some others have said, the movie was awful but movies rarely live up to the books. Love this book!!!! A must read!
Another great by Crichton
I've read most his work and this one didn't disappoint.
I love this book. Hate the movie. That simple. Very well thought out plot that is backed by science, which is a trademark of M.C. books.
