    It is the year 12,020 G.E. and Emperor Cleon I sits uneasily on the Imperial throne of Trantor. Here in the great multidomed capital of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technological and cultural complexity. Yet Cleon knows there are those who would see him fall - those whom he would destroy if only he could read the future.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Prelude to Foundation?

    Knife fight


    Any additional comments?

    The most interesting part of the book was how Assimov created different societies on the same planet. Most sci-fi books have the occupants of an alien world as one grand unified society, whereas Assimov makes Trantor more like Earth. Several different "sectors", basically countries, with different beliefs, values, ethnic traits, etc.

    The fate of the Foundation rests on young Arcadia Darell, only 14 years old and burdened with a terrible secret. As its scientists gird for a final showdown with the Mule, the survivors of the First Foundation begin their desperate search. They too want the Second Foundation destroyed, before it destroys them.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The culmination of the original Foundation series was imaginative and had an ending that was interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    It was never clear to me why the first foundation found the second foundation to be a threat. Didn't both of them believe in Harry Seldon's plan?
