End of Eternity

by oliverrp on May 27, 2010

I read all of Asimov's books 50-55 years ago in my teenage years, but am starting to read them all again. This was the first and a good solid springboard for a jump into his material. The arrogance and failure of Man, time travel, a love story, and eternity - what's not to like?


Innovative (5 stars), Plot (4 stars)

by Asif on Jul 22, 2009

Almost all time-travel stories struggle with dealing with the "butterfly effect" of consequences, and generally don't do a very good job of dealing with it. Asimov's "The End of Eternity" introduces an innovative concept of Eternals, separated from the normal people, the Timers, and does a good job with tying together the various paradoxes associated with time travel. The storyline is fast-paced, and character development is generally good, though a bit more focus on the female protagonist, Noys Lambert would have been better. Overall, an excellent book, probably his best outside of the Foundation/Robot series.
