    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....

    C. A. Milus says: "Superior Time Travel Story"
    "Narrator's voice will not "bore you to death!""
    Overall

    I almost didn't buy this after reading the reviews about the narrator's voice, but you have nothing to worry about. This is coming from a listener who is already spoiled by great narrators like Scott Brick. The tone and inflections are very appropriate for the characters and create a mood that another narrator could not match. On the other hand, if hard science fiction bores you, don't buy this book. If you want a classic time-travel mystery that has surprising and satisfying twists and turns, then this is a great book! When you finish it, the first thing you will wonder is, "Why haven't they made a movie out of this yet?" It is that good, and yes, a movie is in the works. You will never forget the odd city of Eternity that sits outside of time, but feels like it is right next door!
