Frost said, “I can’t believe that, Dr. Asimov.” He then nailed me to the wall by saying, “Surely a man of your diverse intellectual interests and wide-ranging curiosity must have tried to find God?” (Eureka! I had it! The very nails had given me my opening!) I said, smiling pleasantly, “God is much more intelligent than I am — let him try to find me.”
Book: End of Eternity (1955) by Isaac Asimov - An excellent time-travel book, Eternity workers travel both back in time and forward in time, and use their scientific knowledge and skills to determine how the past affects the present and future. They also use their scientific knowledge to determine the “Minimum Necessary Change” that is required to adjust the past to correct problems in the future. I rated this book 5 stars.
44. The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov (September) I don't even know where to start with summing this one up! Incredibly complex and a fantastic premise, this novel highlights the misguided intentions of man and the ramifications of even our smallest deeds on the future generations of humanity. Extremely well done!
