Loves novels illustrating "What if...?". Galactic Empire, Zombie apocalypse, Utopia, Dystopia.
Loved it, hated performance of narrator
.. ... more than twenty words for feedback??? padding padding padding padding padding
I would not listen again... Unless the narrator changed.
Scott Brick was excellent. McKeever is monotone, wooden, emotionless and has horrible pacing.
The foundation series is perhaps my favorite series.
Where is Scott Brick? He did a wonderful job with the rest of the Foundation novels, yet for some reason both Foundation and Earth and Forward the Foundation are narrated by a glorified Speak & Spell. It's almost unlistenable. What gives?
The collection of stories hearkens to asimov's best. The reader is horrible. Truly a mix of great content and dismal performance.
None of the 4 sequels and prequels were up to the level of the original 3. Asimov did a decent job of wrapping it all up and dovetailing this into the beginning of the series, but I thought it lacked the inspiration of the original work.
The narrator for this was horrible. He was actually slightly better than the other one book he read in the series but still it was so hard to get into because of the poor performance.
I've already done all the other Foundation, Empire and Robot books withe the exception of Foundation and Earth... After hearing this narrator, I may never listen to the last one!
I have always love Asimov, and this book does this series proud. This book and Prelude to Foundation do a great job of filling in background and setting the foundation. You finally get to meet the man himself.
Larry McKeever does a poor job reading this book. His voice is flat, out of tune with what is happening in the story, and dull. Mr. maKeover has a nice voice, but there is little to no emotion or purpose in his reading.
I would not say this is a book that will move you, but it will draw you in. I'm a slow reader,a and the book was so good that I had to get the audio version to be able to experience it at the pace it deserves.
sci-fi with politics
Doors' last mystery
The reading was mechanical with pauses in inappropriate places and poor sound clarity.
I was moved by Harry and Dors' last moments together.
I hope this audiobook will be redone and reloaded. Its audio quality is nowhere near as good as the others in this series.
