Fantastic story superbly told as only isaac asimov can do it. Asimov weaves a tapestry as rich and vibrant as any. Classic science fiction the way that it should be.
I wanted to like this book since so many have recommended the Foundation Trilogy. Scott Brick's narration is excellent. No fault there. He does his best to breathe life into an incredibly dull book. Asimov's narrative technique involves interminable, cliche-ridden dialog to advance the plot. There's no action here, just conversations between characters describing what happened. The dialog drags on and on, endlessly. I find myself fast-forwarding just so the characters will get to the point. Deadly dull. I cannot understand why so many like this book.
