Nightfall - Isaac Asimov

After an eternity of light, how would darkness be perceived by one? This is the central plot of Nightfall, the celebrated novellete and the subsequent novelization by Robert Silverberg. A planet which sees 6 suns is finally coming to its first darkness in history owing to a eclipse. This also has a significance in their widespread religious cult that prophecies the end of the world.
Told in a binding and suspenseful prose that builds up impending doom, Nightfall is an interesting perspective about a race who has to speculate planetary knowledge we humans take for granted today.
