Cambridge/ Somerville Readers ~ The End of Eternity

For February, the club has chosen to read The End of Eternity by Issac Asimov.

From Indiebound:

One of Isaac Asimov’s SF masterpieces, this stand-alone novel is a monument of the flowering of SF in the 20th century. It is widely regarded as Asimov’s single best SF novel and one every SF fan should read.

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 always costs.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the re-scheduled date. I enjoyed the book and hope everyone else did, too!

    I will sadly not be able to make it. Blame science. But I'd love to talk about the book with people if anyone is up for it some other time! It was an excellent read! I am not sure if you guys nominate for the next book at the end of each meetup, but if so, since I won't be there I would like to suggest "The Explorer" by James Smythe! Excellent book!
