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.
Remember that violence is the last resort of the incompetent. If you like SciFi than this is a must read. If you have not read this than that might qualify as a personal "Hari Seldon crisis".
Really interesting if somewhat dated exploration of politics, religion and power. A Cold War antidote, maybe. Oddly Platonic, too, with its suggestion of back-door ascension of philosopher kings.
great story, well read :) very interesting idea for a galactic story which takes place over multiple generations - interesting perspective on chainging cycle of human society.
I realize that opinions vary; however, I just do not enjoy Scott Brick. His readings are almost monotone. I have great difficulty enjoying stories when he performs them.
