    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.

    Svenghali says: "Trantor, capital of a galactic empire!"
    "A bit formulaic, predictable"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No... the Foundation series is "just okay," in my opinion. The earlier books (written earlier) were interesting primarily because of their examination of social mores and structures. None is what I'd been expecting from a "science fiction" classic. This one is obviously written by an author more experienced and shaped by fans' desires for "a normal novel," and it's not a particularly interesting one.


    What could Isaac Asimov have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not write it... the "prequel" thing doesn't work.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As good as any; he's a great narrator.


    Could you see Prelude to Foundation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope not.
