    For 12,000 years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last 30,000 years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire, both scientists and scholars, and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I do like Isaac Asimov's stories usually, but I think I'm more in for the shorter stories. For some reason this book did not drag me into the story. Not to say that it was bad, but it went too much into the politics of


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make it more active and less descriptive.


    What aspect of Scott Brick’s performance would you have changed?

    Not sure, I think it's too early for me to judge that as I am only recently an audiobook listener.


    Did Foundation inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, to give it a rest and try the foundation books maybe later on.

    Story
    (15086)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sally, basically because I liked her. I found it a pitty that she was "left alone"

    Yellow man. The way this character was described and the way he talked really gave me the creeps.

    Strings to the past
