    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to everyone who likes to think. the charaters were believable and that helped to transport you into the story


    What other book might you compare The End of Eternity to and why?

    I could compare this work to I,Robot. also by Asimov or 1984 by Orwell (although not be that name) in that someone is making choices for the rest of humanity --for their own good. You could also read some of these concepts in Mein Kamf by Hitler.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    Harlin--although I almost always indetify with the hero


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When it became apparent that Harlin was making the decision to act on his own, and try to think for himself. When he took her to the far upwhen.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Walter Isaacson
    • Narrated By Edward Herrmann

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Einstein to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Einstein?

    becoming a citizen of both Switzerland and the US.


    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Einstein


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His attachment to his children.


    Any additional comments?

    this gave me much to think about. I had not been aware of his great popularity--that he liked it it-- nor that he was as immoral as regards to women as he was.
