El fin de la eternidad / The End of Eternity


Un hito de las novelas sobre viajes temporales. En el siglo XXVII, la Tierra funda una organizacion llamada Eternidad, enviando sus emisarios al pasado y al futuro para abrir el comercio entre las diferentes epocas, y para alterar la larga y a veces tragica historia de la raza humana. El proyecto estaba integrado solo por los mejores y mas brillantes exponentes de cada siglo: personas que dejaron de lado sus propias vidas para dedicarse a servir a los demas. Para hombres como Andrew Harlan, Eternidad representaba mucho mas que un trabajo: era su vida, su amante, sus hijos, su familia. Pero, cuando viajo al siglo cuatrocientos ochenta y dos, no pudo evitar enamorarse perdidamente de una hermosa no-eterna llamada Noÿs Lambent. Ahora, perseguidos por una burocracia todopoderosa, Harlan y su amada escapan entre los siglos, buscando romper todas las reglas que sean necesarias para preservar su futuro juntos. Incluso si para ello tuvieran que destruir la propia Eternidad... ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Around the year 130 BC, after a long journey, the destinies of young Avi and the mythical Evaristus of Pagala coincide near the Hindu Kush mountains. The encounter, seemingly casual, sparks a tale in which adventure, spirituality, history, and language combine in a boundless literary experience that, gradually, leads to initiation. To get to that point, the reader must delve into the peculiar Portus Macedonum, into the magical isle of Bibakta, and into the passes, caves, and rivers of the Kush mountains, which hide secrets almost as old as mankind itself. The memorable characters and situations, the manner of addressing the so-called "big themes," and the stylistic strength reveal the novel's true protagonist: beauty, that eternal mediator between the human and the divine that knows how to say everything without words. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 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. During one of his assignments, Harlan meets and falls in love with Noÿs Lambent, a woman who lives in real time and space. Then Harlan learns that Noÿs will cease to exist after the next change, and risks everything to sneak her into Eternity. Unfortunately, they are caught. Harlan's punishment? His next assignment: kill the woman he loves before the paradox they have created results in the destruction of Eternity.
