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 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.
