Only a handful of people on the planet Lagash are prepared to face the truth--that their six suns are setting all at once for the first time in 2,000 years, signaling the end of civilization!

Sorry Isaac, but this book did for me what a sleeping pill might have done for them.

A fantastic story. The depth with which Asimov and Silverberg have explored characters reactions gives the reader such a strong feeling of characterization.

The idea is creative to begin with, but the exploration of the emotional aspects makes this more than just another sci-fi book. It is a look at emotions, religion, science, and how they interact in the presence of what appears to be a cataclysmic event.

This is a sci-fi classic. Probably the best science fiction book you could ever read. The begining starts out slow but it gets a lot better. Isaac Asimov is an author you could explore a lot more with
