This stand-alone novel 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. During one of his assignments, Harlan meets and falls in love with Noÿs Lambert, a woman who lives in real time and space. Then Harlan learns that Noÿs will cease to exist after the next Change, and he risks everything to sneak her into Eternity.

Quotes & Awards

  • Eternity also works as a futuristic thriller and is particularly effective as a straight-up mystery novel. The last thirty pages of the book move with terrific velocity through a series of startling revelations. Asimov snaps together a dozen story elements cleverly obscured throughout the other chapters. Clearly, this is where Asimov's Sherlock habit pays off.”


Listener Opinions

    " The story is very compelling and the concepts introduced used are typical of the mastery of Asimov. A great visionary, Asimov portrays in a simple story how a humanity with time travel would behave and what paradigms would have to shift. Although there were some parts of the story that definitely could have been better, or parts of the plot that where easily anticipated, overall it is a great piece of Sci-Fi. Once again, The End of Eternity shows why Asimov was one of the giants of Science Fiction. "

    " One of the best in the genre. Anything from Asimov is expected to be above average to begin with, but the tight structure of this story hold together a tale with so many twists and turns and loopbacks that any other author would have never been able to do as good a job of focusing on the basics of storytelling. The obvious pitfalls of delving into the science or the technology involved could easily become the focus of this story, but Isaac keeps the focus on the interpersonal relationships and the plans within plans that make a story readable.

    " I would give this 4 1/2 stars. The godfather of science fiction handles time travel and changing the past very well, while questioning whether doing so can benefit humanity. "
