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.
I'm an avid reader, always looking for something a little new.
the book itself is quite good, and necessary for the rest of them... I read it first because it was Number 1 in a series, and I re-read it to remind myself of the key components and basis of the system.
Perhaps the beginning of Caves of Steel, or even the early parts of Ender's Game. This book sets up the environment, and the pertinent characters, essential to continue, but not excessively exciting in itself.
Perhaps it is related to when I first read Foundation, but the supercilious, bland voice which reads this book... I was ever so disappointed.
Stefan Rudnick please? this is my first Scott Brick, I think, and .... I'll sample stuff he writes before I buy another.
Computational cognition, ethics, transhumanism, etc.
Recognize the genius of Isaac at the Bob for having us over 65 years ago… But it just doesn't hold up today in the world of Orson scott card
