    The opening episode begins on Trantor, capital of the Galactic Empire, with the meeting of Seldon and Dornick, their trial, and their exile to Terminus. The action then jumps forward 50 years, to the first Seldon Crisis, where the repercussions of the recent independence of the Four Kingdoms of the Periphery are being felt on Terminus, and are handled by the first Mayor, Salvor Hardin....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better audio, clear audio. I realize it's an old BBC radio broadcast but it is very muffled and the volume swings were awful.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    ear-distress


    Any additional comments?

    As an Asimov fan I was looking forward to this dramatization, but I was disappointed by the audio. The voices were muffled and often very low. When I turned the volume up to hear more clearly the transition audio would kick in and rock me out my seat or blow me out of my car. The tones were like fingernails on a chalkboard.
