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.
The first 3 foundation books were, at times, a little tedious and boring. The robot series was much more entertaining. The reason for this? Asimov simply became a better writer with age.
Now, he has returned to the Foundation series with this better writing style and produced a very good book that will keep you entertained and trying to guess what will happen next from cover to cover. Of the 4 Foundation books I've read so far, this is by far the best and I recommend it to anyone who has read the first 3 novels.
