It was good enough to get me to make it through the whole thing, but it seemed a bit oriented at a younger audience and yet had a lot of violence. It kept my attention, but I ended up frustrated that it ended with what seemed like the end of an introduction to more books.
The good bits reminded me a bit of the Tom Swift novels of my youth.
Maybe for younger sci-fi fans.
Too many scenes.
It was a toss up.
The idea of the consequences of altering time and the increasing difficulty in keeping time from running off the rails. Probably only the very old concept of computing dated it. I loved how it made me think about the problems altering time would pose
Arthur C. Clarke's "City and the Stars" was similar in that it seemed contemporary and at points I couldn't stop listening. The difference being that Clarke's book I still think about as the far future it painted was fascinating.
I think that Paul made the character's distinct enough to not get mixed up during dialogues. Seems simple, but I doubt it is so.
There were points where I couldn't stop listening.
While I read most of Asimov as a young teenager, but somehow don't remember this one. Don't know how I could have missed it.
