Only if you have a sentimental attachment to the Foundation series and want to read it to its end. Larry McKeever turned one of my favorite books into a daily toil. I slept through large portions of the book and didn't even bother rewinding because I just wanted to finish it. He has the reading voice of a Geritol advertisement. Also he obviously didn't bother, or did his editors, to listen to any of the other Foundation books because his pronunciations are terribly inconsistent: Zer-oth law instead of Zero-eth. Gee-skard instead of Gis-kard etc. To those with fond memories of the Foundation series who want to keep them that way should avoid this book. I honestly don't know Larry McKeever was ever allowed in front of a microphone.
Alystar Reynolds has some great books.
Pick a different guy. I know! How about the same person who read all the other books in the series. At least he knows how to pronounce the names and words.
I know they say they are making one but the general public is too dumb to absorb a story like this. They'd have to turn it into a travesty of intellectual minimalism like Will Smith's "I, Robot. Maybe if Daneel Olivaw was a transformer...."
This book is proof that you can turn pure gold into dung.
