    Councilman Golan Trevize is wondering if he was right to choose a collective mind as the best possible future for humanity over the anarchy of contentious individuals, nations and planets. To test his conclusion, he decides he must know the past and goes in search of legendary Earth, all references to which have been erased from galactic libraries. The societies encountered along the way become arguing points in a book-long colloquy about man's fate, conducted by Trevize and traveling companion Bliss, who is part of the first world/mind, Gaia.

    What didn’t you like about Larry McKeever’s performance?

    His portrayals were dry, dull and the timing was as if he was forced to stop after each word and make sure he annunciated each letter with special emphasis.

    The story gets lost. And I couldn't listen to more than 15 minutes in a sitting without losing the plot.

    The book and author are great, so I knew the plot already. But I feel bad for anyone who doesn't know the plot. I strongly recommend against this narrator.
