Many consider this book to be Isaac Asimov's greatest science fiction extravaganza. The late grand master wrote this detailed story of time-travel in the early 1950s. An organization called Eternity hobbles through time, making minor adjustments that often have unexpected major consequences, all in a quest to ease the lot of the human race. There’s a hero and a heroine, naturally. Narrator Paul Boehmer starts out as if he were responding to an automated telephone query: slow, precise, with each word carefully enunciated. But, happily, he gets caught up in the story, acting out the characters and delivering a more engaging dramatic cadence. The story of the beginning of infinity grabs the listener.
