The Gods Themselves

By Isaac Asimov

Rating: 4 stars

Another of Asimov’s classics that I hadn’t got around to reading until now. A chance encounter leads to a potentially limitless clean energy source, but is there a dark side that could destroy the world? This book gives Asimov a chance to show his chemistry background, and is science fiction at its purest: take one “what if” and run with it and see where it takes you. In this case, what if an element came into our universe from another where the laws of physics are ever-so-slightly different (a stronger Strong nuclear force). A very entertaining book and a great example of good science fiction.
