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.

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.
