Excellent conversations about political manoeuvring
Not always – the chapters about the traders was especially difficult sometimes
"The book is always better"
Starts off with a man being accused of treason after predicting the end of society, a society of a quintillion people covering 25 million planets. There is supposed to be a huge galactic battle and these 2 planets writing the encyclopedia galactica are supposed to save everyone from 30,000 years of barbarism. Instead everyone sits around, smoking cigars discussing the end and how they can't change what is inevitable.
If you love period pieces with no action, no twists and tons of dialogue then this is for you. If you love sci-fi for space exploration, aliens, technology and space battles then look elsewhere.
I, Robot was amazing, Foundation was really boring, I won't be getting the other parts.
the narrator made the story difficult to follow. each character was in the exact same voice, making it confusing to follow.
SciFi crazy! Geek! Love my dog, Dylan! Was never a good reader, then I discovered Audible and topics that interested me. Generally SciFi, b
Its a great story, just like the Spin series.
I got hooked and continued to read book 2
The narrator does a good job.
The Foundation Trilogy is such a classic. It's amazing Asimov started on it before WWII.
Excellent. Probably the best naration I've heard on Audible.
No, but Forward the Foundation has a touching ending.
Consider reading the Foundation Trilogy first. Then Foundation's Edge, Foundation and Earth, Prelude to Foundation, Forward the Foundation. Read in this order you put up with the more primitive sci fi in the trilogy (given it was written in the 40's), and each succeeding book keeps getting better. Prelude to Foundation and Forward the Foundation are the story of Hari Seldon and occur before Foundation Trilogy. After reading the stories of the Foundation through the centuries in the other 5 books, Prelude and Forward are much more meaningful. You really want to learn the back story of Hari. Forward the Foundation is the best of all the Foundation books, and is a great way to end the series (it was the last Foundation book Asimov wrote). Very touching ending.
