This was interesting. I'd never read Asimov before but I enjoy science fiction. Some of it was hard to follow - the "rules" of time travel, but what an imagination! I liked the character development and had empathy for the main characters. I did have to "rewind" frequently to fix in my mind what exactly was going on.
I have hundreds of books in my collection of Audiobooks, and this is possibly the worst read of them all. The narrator's voice sounds choppy and stilted. The reader's cadence and inflection at times sound like he had read the words individually into a computer then then strung them together.
The reading of this story has no life. It sounds like the voice one might hear reading a particularly dry textbook.
I read this book three or more decades ago and enjoyed it very much. But when I listened to it this week, I was surprised at how sad it now seemed: Asimov's view of the future was so far off (punch tape thousands of years in the future???) and his treatment of gender issues made the listening tough at times. The reader did not trouble me much though the obvious logical inconsistencies were hard to ignore (probably inevitable in any time-travel story).
It was an OK novel but far from Asimov's best as the teaser description calls it. The many breaches in logic, if there is a logic to time travel, took away from the story.
