great book! he is well ahead (Light Years) of his time. He successfully shows how mankind is and will be the same for eons .
I'm a huge foundation fan - have the whole series in book form. Read them from the library before buying them, read them again and again. But I will not be getting any of the other audio versions of the famous series. What a disappointment. This was like listening to someone reading up from the phone book, jumping all over the place and unable to catch your attention.
I can read the book get actually understand the action. The narrator just left me confused.
A great classic science fiction story that should be in every library. The coming of age in atomic power and the hope of mankind that it will be good (the science). A possible new science, physohistory, and the application of equations and symbols to human destiny (the fiction) Book 1 of 3.
Narrated clearly, but someone's lacking emphasis this book was a good listen and my first foray into Asimov. I will be listening to the rest of the series!
For other first timers, the narration isn't broken, but rather incomplete extracts are read throughout from the encyclopaedia galactica.
