Among the greatest, by one of the greatest.
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2017
Isaac Asimov was certainly among the greatest of twentieth-century science-fiction authors, and "The Gods Themselves" is arguably his masterpiece, of hundreds to chose from. Science-fiction aficionado or not, if you've never read it you are in for a treat. Not at all complex, it may be the most imaginative story, from the most imaginative writer bibliophiles have ever read.
Asimov was a polymath, of the widest ranging fields of study. His library of original writings, much more than science-fiction, remains astounding. I recommend the reader dip into his work, and to start with "The Gods Themselves." Avoid reading it too rapidly.
