    A stunning testament to his creative genius. Forward The Foundation is a the saga's dramatic climax - the story Asimov fans have been waiting for. An exciting tale of danger, intrigue, and suspense, Forward The Foundation brings to vivid life Asimov's best loved characters: hero Hari Seldon, who struggles to perfect his revolutionary theory of psychohistory to ensure the survival of humanity; Cleon II, the vain and crafty emperor of the Galactic Empire.

    Christine says: "Love the story. Can't stand the narrator!"
    "Narrator should read for adults."

    Story

    Narrator McKeever speaks as if to first graders. Also, his pronunciation of the name of a main character sounds very wrong to my ear, and of course it is repeated frequently. His reading style caused me to abandon this book after about 45 minutes. I had already finished Prelude to Foundation with Scott Brick reading very nicely. After stopping Forward the Foundation, I skipped ahead to Foundation, again with Mr. Brick, but I was finding that even with a very good narrator, this series is not nearly as fantastic and captivating as I regarded it in high school. Maybe Kirk and Spock simply eclipsed Hari Seldon. I have already purchased the entire Foundation series from Audible, but now, especially after noting Mr. McKeever's name again as narrator for Foundation and Earth, I'm stopping this series three-fourths of the way through Foundation.
