Summary:

The first novel in Isaac Asimov’s classic science-fiction masterpiece, the Foundation series

THE EPIC SAGA THAT INSPIRED THE APPLE TV+ SERIES FOUNDATION • Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
 
For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Seldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future—to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last thirty thousand years. To preserve knowledge and save humankind, 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 future generations. He calls his sanctuary the Foundation. 
 
The Foundation novels of Isaac Asimov are among the most influential in the history of science fiction, celebrated for their unique blend of breathtaking action, daring ideas, and extensive worldbuilding. In Foundation, Asimov has written a timely and timeless novel of the best—and worst—that lies in humanity, and the power of even a few courageous souls to shine a light in a universe of darkness.

    Foundation is a science fiction milestone. Asimov can't be beat for pure ideas. His characters aren't always what one would wish but with so many ideas, who cares? The text is densely plotted and one must follow closely to keep up. Scott Brick is a wonderful reader. He slips easily over all those obtuse science fiction-ie names of planets and people. Thumbs up for a good old-fashioned classic.

    A complex story that needs full attention to enjoy. If you want some light reading, move on.

    narrator was amazing and the book was amazing.

    I like the plot of the story but it’s boring. It’s difficult to keep the mind from wandering while listening to it.
