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.
Asimov is just a great, classic, storyteller. Scott is a great narrator as well. I have purchased the other titles in this series and am looking forward to them.
The status of this book as one of the classics in SF had me expecting something brilliant, but I found it rather average. Maybe it improves in part two or three, but I'm not in a hurry to find out.
Also, how could anyone write SF where every woman in the entire galaxy is a housewife? The only named female in the book is a stereotypical whiny "high maintenance" wife.
The story of course is excellent. Typical Asimov.
The performance is good except that there are several gaps where content from the original recording is missing and it just skips.
Yes, because I love the series and this is an essential part of it.
Same reason as above.
This book was originally written as a series of short stories. As a result, at times it is challenging to keep track of changing characters. However, it is worthwhile, since the series is fabulous.
I prefer to read books but audio books are a new found love of mine. Can't beat Asimov and I would likely listen to anything narrated by Scott Brick. With audio books, the narrator makes all the difference.
I liked the depiction of the setting and the idea of the plot, it was interesting to read of interplanetary civilizations. For a fictional book there were a lot of politics. Reading chapter after chapter of fictional politics was the downfall for me.
More action and story telling. He set up every character way too much.
The first 3 chapters are cool. You really have to want to stick with it.
Not for me.
