Easily one of my favourites.
Parts I can't mention in order to avoid spoiling the book for others who haven't read/listened to this book. I will say there are some moments of surprise that I loved.
I don't have one particular favourite scene but I loved diving into the world of the empire and following Harry and Dors around. The different worlds and sectors made the book exciting and has now lead me to listen to all the books in this (The Foundation) series.
Again I don't want to ruin any surprises in the book but I do like the surprises that are in this story and I love the concept of Psychohistory and its role in this story and the series.
I've listened to the books in chronological order of the The Foundation series universe and this being the first I listened to really got me interested in the whole series.
This for me was one of the best books in the series and I found subsequent books in this series mixed with some as good as this story and some difficult to stayed interested in.
Overall I love the entire Foundation series and am currently finishing off the last book.
The narrator was terrible. The story was extremely slow in the first half.
Hasn't set me off ask I'm only 2 books away from finishing the series.
I didn't like his pronunciation of the names or the sound of voice it was very croaky.
The first half of book would've been cut.
The book keeps the series connected so I stuck with it. The narrator was horrible his pronunciation of Eto Demerzel was different from Scott Brick which first set me off but then the tone and sound really did me in. Somewhat mono tone and croaky.
The first half I found very slow and boring, I think it could have been summed up into 15 minutes of reading then followed up by the second half where things started to get interesting.
Disappointed with this book but it was only one in this otherwise great series.
