    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....

    Story

    I'm guessing if you're thinking about this book it's because you've read other Asimov books and liked them. Time travel can be a confusing subject, so Asimov approaches this book a little differently than most and asks some off-the-beaten-path questions. Look at what might happen over a 100,000 years...

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Story

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Story

    The story is engaging and thoughtful. The narrator has the deep raspy voice a good Western story needs. What will the Gunslinger learn if he catches up with the "man in black"? You can almost feel the sound in your mouth as he walks through the desert. The fantastical/sci-fi touch allows the liberties Stephen King needs to create a unique story that pokes at the oldest questions humans have about existence (why are we here? what happens when we die? etc.) and avoid sounding preachy.
