Crichton’s Timeline fuses quantum theory with with a slice of life from the fourteenth century, during the Hundred Years War. I don’t know if there is a particular moral, apart from the usual “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” There is an iconic young tech billionaire who values science and money over people.

 The story is more about the slice of life from medieval times than about science fiction. Crichton picks on historicists who lose the sense of reality in all of their theorizing.

The trip back to medieval times is quite fun and interesting. His view of the people and lifestyle and the reality of it all makes a fun read.
