Someone who has a lot of patience for foreseeable plot twists and pretty flat characters, as well as Asimov's tendency to repeat himself. All in all its a perfectly fine book for putting on casually as background.
I'm less enthusiastic about other work by Scott Brick just for how flat some of the characters come off throughout the story and series. True that the Foundation Saga has an exceptionally large character count, but often I found myself mistaking some characters for others, as Brisk's range (here at least) seemed quite limited.
I was mainly disappointed for an ending to a series which gradually dulled rather than climax. In the end it felt like the final plot was pretty much the same as all the other sub plots and set ups. Predictable and numb, much like the actuality of Hari Seldon's prophecy.
