Past, Present, and Future could be created or destroyed at will. You had to be special to become an Eternal. Andrew Harlan was special. Until he committed the one unforgivable sin—falling in love. Eternals weren’t supposed to have feelings. But Andrew could not deny the sensations that were struggling within him. He knew he could not keep this secret forever. And so he began to plan his escape, a plan that changed his own past . . . and threatened Eternity itself. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "

    " this is my favorite book ever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 1/11/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iazonata | 12/27/2013

    " That probably my favorite book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 11/30/2013

    " I had it rated as 4 stars until I read the final chapter. Mind-blowing genius of Asimov! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 10/16/2013

    " I can't believe that I've slept on Asimov. The guys classic for a reason. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 9/25/2013

    " The overall story was good, but there are plenty of parts where I was just left confused. The ending was great and again the overall arc of the story was wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neelroop | 7/7/2013

    " SO GOOD. I probably need to read more Asimov to put it in perspective, but this is an absolutely brilliant treatment of time travel. Some parts seem hokey initially, but they culminate in a spectacular cleverness that I could not have predicted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 6/27/2013

    " What a good book. It takes some ability to pay attention and retain what you read to follow it, but it's as good as science fiction gets. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charles | 4/6/2013

    " Granted it's a classic, but also, let's face it, it's a drag. This is the only Asimov novel I have read, and it doesn't make me want to dive right in to the Foundation books or anything else. The ideas are intriguing, the writing is pedestrian, the characters are a bore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 3/3/2013

    " This is more like 3.5 stars. Pretty interesting read, although had to trudge through some of the scientific lingo. In the end though, Azimov delivers as usual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Preston | 2/24/2013

    " This book is at the very crux of all of Asimov's books. It is the precursor to the Foundation books, the book that set up the vast human galactic empire, with no aliens allowed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 8/23/2012

    " I'm sure it was good, but I don't remember what it was about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 8/14/2011

    " Great read. I don't usually read science fiction but this is entertaining AND intelligent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry | 8/2/2011

    " Ah yeah, that was a bit confusing, but interesting nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 5/16/2011

    " Great book! Asimov was a great writer with great stories to tell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mario | 5/8/2011

    " this is my favorite book ever! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pablo | 4/29/2011

    " Best time-travel story I've read. Superb plot "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adriana | 4/27/2011

    " Fue el primer libro de ciencia ficción que leí y me hizo reconsiderar mi percepción sobre el género. Me parece un estupendo libro. Ne encantó. Me hizo meditar, reflexionar y soñar. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aishe | 4/27/2011

    " Perhaps one of Asimov's most clever cautionary tales I have yet to read regarding technology and the human condition. One wonders how it could ever have been lost in the sands of time...it is not one of his more popular titles in the present day, but it should be. It really should be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 4/20/2011

    " Absolutely amazing book. Probably the best Asimov I've read, although the Foundation trilogy comes close. A must read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 4/18/2011

    " God, I loved this book. *Swoon!* Isaac Asimov was very good at making real science accessible to the average person, and he was equally good at creating fiction that combines compelling sci-fi with a big dose of heart and compassionate perception into human nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick | 4/1/2011

    " This is an amazing book! A real work-out for the brain for sure.

    Anyone who is into the TV show Fringe would be interested in this, as some of the main themes, and even character-types, are taken directly from this book (example: The "Observers") "
