Description

Winner of the Hugo Award for Best All-Time Series

The Foundation series is Isaac Asimov’s iconic masterpiece. Unfolding against the backdrop of a crumbling Galactic Empire, the story of Hari Seldon’s two Foundations is a lasting testament to an extraordinary imagination, one whose unprecedented scale shaped science fiction as we know it today.

The Galactic Empire has prospered for 12,000 years. Nobody suspects that the heart of the thriving Empire is rotten, until psychohistorian Hari Seldon uses his new science to foresee its terrible fate.

Exiled to the desolate planet Terminus, Seldon establishes a colony of the greatest minds in the Empire, a Foundation which holds the key to changing the fate of the galaxy.

However, the death throes of the Empire breed hostile new enemies, and the young Foundation’s fate will be threatened first.

"One of the most staggering achievements in modern SF." (The Times)

"Isaac Asimov was one of the great explainers of the age...It will never be known how many practising scientists today, in how many countries, owe their initial inspiration to a book, article, or short story by Isaac Asimov." (Carl Sagan)

"Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction." (Daily Telegraph)

Good Story - Terrible Production

The story is good - I read this almost 40 years ago, and now listening to it again.

However, the production is very low quality - the narration cuts out weirdly and some parts are not there (so a sentence will end midway etc). That makes it hard to tell if the narrator just stops randomly, or if the narration is missing a sentence or even an entire chapter.

Very disappointing production of a seminal work of Science Fiction by a master of the genre.

Well read classic science fiction

Someone complained about partial loss of sentences, but citations from the "Galactic Encyclopedia" are actually truncated in the original text also and ends abruptly in the middle of sentences with a series of dots.... These quotations are meant only as glimpses, but when read aloud they certainly give the impression of having been cut by accident. Perhaps the reader should have said "end of quotation" or something like that. I too became annoyed and had to look it up in the first edition! As for lack of "character development", that complaint is true enough, but in my opinion it is rather an asset, not a drawback in stories of this kind. Asimov is certainly a somewhat overrated writer, but he is much more readable than some highly praised but dry and academic writers like Ursula le Guin. Carefully planned and thought out "caracter development" can sometimes be a drag. In short, I like the Foundation trilogy very much but it should perhaps be read as a delicious "period piece".

Unfathomable nonsense...

I've listened to half of this and given up. There's no character development because, essentially, there are no real 'characters', this is just pseudo-political mumbo jumbo. I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in what happens as there is nothing to draw me in and make me interested. I came to this with high hopes having heard and read such good things about it, but quite frankly, this is awful. I have no idea why this gets such rave reviews...

Einfach großartig

Es ist schwer zu glauben dass Foundation schon fast 70 Jahre alt ist.. Ich hatte natürlich dieses Buch schon mal gelesen aber es hat trotzdem so viel Spaß gemacht es als Audiobook zu genießen. Ein Klassik vom Sci-Fi.
