    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 don't usually like stories that involve time travel. This one seems like a reaction to all of my objections–it addresses most of the inconsistencies of time travel in a clever plot. It is internally consistent, while most time travel stories are not. In its time, it is genius, but now it felt dated. If you can place yourself in a time when computers were expected to be able to think, or if you love Asimov, this book is for you. While it is a classic of science fiction, I didn't think it measured up to Heinlein. If I could go back in time, I would recommend it to myself, but in my top 100, not in my top 10.
