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.
Nope, because I've seen the movie so many times.
No, its a little slow. Had trouble keeping track of the names.
The love store isn't believable. I can see why they re-worked the book for the movie. Still a great read. Probably would have been better if I wasn't such a huge fan of the movie.
The author brings back to life an old friend, the legendary Dr. Susan Calvin. This book definitely feels like it could have been written by Isaac Asimov. In fact, I think this author is better at writing for female characters than Asimov was. Susan Calvin's character is full of warmth and a depth that it hasn't seen before. It is a must-read for Asimov fans.
Getting to know Dr. Susan Calvin better.
She sounds like Dr Calvin always sounded in my head.
Yes, but I had to force myself to take breaks.
I really miss Isaac Asimov. Its great that someone can add more to the Asimov experience and, in some ways, exceed it.
Not only is this the best audio book I've ever listened to, its the best novel I've ever read. The narration and sound quality was incredible.
I'm laying here in my bed staring at the ceiling as the last paragraph of the book spills out and the full horror of the its reality is revealed. Stupefying.
The sound quality of this recording is horrible. Its all mid-range with no lows or highs. I had to turn the treble way up and the bass down to be able to make out the words without straining. You'd think they would put more time into this. Sorry Peter.
