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
This is a space story written decades ago. Not everything is going to be logical based on what we have now. It is almost exclusively dialog driven and uses a lot of deus ex machina style resolutions. With that said, it was entertaining, and this was the first space book I've ever read. I'll continue on with the series.
Scott Brick, the narrator, is pleasant to listen to and easy to understand. He provides a good performance. His only caveat is a lack of character voice styles. A few tines, the speaker was not named in the story and his voice styles were not distinct enough to infer who was talking.
Overall, a good story and will be interesting to lovers of science and politics.
Very enjoyable experience that makes me want to listen to the next in the series.
A well posed, not annoying voice with a proper tone.
I'm looking forward to listening the following books, and dread the one in the series that is narrated by someone else.
I read the foundation series in college in the early 1980s. I remembered the basic big picture issues (mostly from the later books in the series in hindsight), but time had made me forget the details. Scott Brick's reading was excellent, and the long lost story of my book reading past came alive. I like to take long walks listening to books/other non-music enjoyments, and I found myself taking longer walks just to hear how the current story/characters would resolve their crisis.
Asimov's Foundation series has been an inspiration to many scientists and writers of science fiction. Scott Brick's narration is quite fine, if a tad strident at times - I would give the performance 4.5 stars if I could but will round up rather than down. I have read and listened to the foundation, empire and robot stories and novels numerous times over the years. They are as the tales of my ancestors.
