The narrator could have profitably been replaced by a computer generated voice. The delivery was flat, emotionless and had a cadence that disrupted the dialog.
Timeless. Dated in some ways but still timeless in its themes. many science fiction books after this series can in some way claim this as an ancestor.
If Asimov wasn't so great a writer, he might have made a good philosopher, psychologist, or sociologist. He delves into some very deep issues concerning free will, dependency, individuality, consciousness, and others. Unfortunately, he leaves out the possibility of the existence of God. Still, his books are among my favorites, and this one is well narrated. After this one, be sure to get Foundation and Earth!
Another awesome addition to the Foundation series. Scott Brick is an incredible narrator, better than any I've ever heard. It's now hard to listen to audiobooks narrated by anybody but Brick. He really fills the text with emotion and embodies each character in their own unique ways.
Say something about yourself!
Isaac Asimov was a genius author. I highly recommend this book after the trilogy, very entertaining in the second half.
As others from Mr Asimov, this book held my attention with a thought provoking lesson far ahead of its time.
