“His most effective piece of work. Asimov's exemplary clarity in plotting is precisely suited to the material at hand.” ―Locus
“By literary standards, this tale of time travel from the 95th century is generally rated Asimov's best.” ―Entertainment Weekly
“Asimov's flirtation with the tropes employed by A.E. van Vogt and Charles Harness is startling for an author deemed ultra-rational and scientific.…The effects of this influential, seminal book echo to the present, in the works of such writers as Greg Egan, John Varley, Kage Baker, and Greg Bear.” ―SciFi.com

Also, a bootstrap paradox that he never even mentions or deals with.
I wasn’t much invested in the characters, but I don’t think that is a bad thing. I think the fact that I didn’t care for either Harlan or Noÿs and still really enjoyed the book says a lot about how interesting and well developed this plot is. They are both insipid characters for most of the story, but I was still always interest to open my book every chance I got, because so many interesting things were happening to them. There was also the sheer mystery of the reason why these bland characters would defy their society and rules in such an extreme way.
I loved the time paradox discussions and the original time traveling plot, but what I loved the most was the incredibly surprising ending. I’ll obviously not hint to it, but it was smart and unexpected.
I highly recommend it!
It's a relatively quick read. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
