Description
The story of our future begins with the 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. Only Hari Seldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future—a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last thirty thousand years. To preserve knowledge and save humanity, 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 this sanctuary the Foundation. But soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords rising in the wake of the receding Empire. And mankind's last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice: submit to the barbarians and live as slaves—or take a stand for freedom and risk total destruction.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Asimov's sweeping tale of the disintegration and fall of the Galactic Empire has never been more relevant or poignant. In Foundation, Larry McKeever reads like he's racing to a fire, reducing the listener's experience of the tale's grandeur to a feeble struggle to follow the plot. His voice is clear but unremarkable. He uses few vocal characterizations, and extended conversations are often difficult to track. Narrative passages suffer from the one-speed pace. Technical and editorial problems plague the title. Intermittent fade-outs on one channel; inconsistencies when switching sides; and low, rumbling background noise mar the sound quality. S.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
