Simple fellow
This story was so multi-layered, I shake my head in utter amazement that it was written in 1951. If the author were still alive, I'd put it on my dream list to shake his hand and thank him for his talent with words. It's no wonder he won so many awards in his career.

This is a book of philosophy about the meaning of destiny hidden in the guise of Science Fiction. Amidst the requisite time travel theme, it touches on the nature of mankind with its illusion of superiority over all living things. The forgotten value of humility. Evolution. The untapped power of the mind and spirit. The might of the "corporation" that works to enslave the common man's mind. And the power games of war that stem from the need to fight back for a measure of sovereignty that allows for a life lived with dignity.

Mr Simak does all that in one solid story line that doesn't let up until the last line that leaves you breathless.

Read it. Digest it. And see if you don't question both yourself and the society we live in on deeper levels.

I continue to be amazed by this author. I have come across him only recently and everything, short story or long, he writes is original and compelling.

This story takes full advantage of the twists of time and the intrigues of the human race. Thousands of years in the future man runs the The galaxy until one man's book places that at risk. This is that story. Enjoy!

This book has held up much better that most of the other early science fiction of its era. It's certainly worth reading with the central issue being are human replica androids really human? I enjoyed that aspect of the story. Nonetheless, I probably wouldn't have read it if I'd realized that time travel played a big role in the story.

Simak has always been one of my favorites. I read him as a youngster and am now re-reading him as a grandpa. He and Fredrick Brown are the best short story writer's ever. This would have been better as a short story or a novella. Too much filler. Still consider him among my top 3 favorite authors.

The ideas in this novel are great and to be applauded. But the style is hopelessly old-fashioned; although it reminds me a little of Tolkien and Asimov. All life is sacred on its own, may be the motto of this book.
Whatever
Written in the 1950s about eras unimaginably far in the future. Quaint in some ideas of technology, but dies a great job of converting a timeless message. Worth a read.

Predating Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" (1968) by eighteen years and Robert Silverberg's "The Glass Tower" (1970) by twenty, Simak touches on the theme of artificicial or manufactured human life, and the status and rights of that life versus their creators, and how this relates to the nature of humanity itself. Simaks' sense of humanity, compassion, and optimism is reflected in this and all other novels of his that I've read in the past, and is a refreshing break from all of the dystopic bleakness, and graphic nature of the general circulation of novels of the genre in more recent times. If you're not that familiar with Simak's body work, I highly recommend "Waystation" and "Ring Around the Sun", as subsequent reads.
This tale suffered a bit from a disjointed story line, I felt, but perhaps that is inevitable with time travel themes. Nevertheless, i enjoyed it and found it hard to put down until finished. Simak was a classic SF writer and knew how to weave together interesting characters with creative futuristic story telling and, in this case, something of a surprise ending.
