i first came into contact with the foundation series around the mid 80,s and was hooked right from the start. asimovs writing takes you out of the realms of reality, and takes you far far into what could be a wonderful future.
the books take away the fears and hurts of modern living for such a short time,making the reader wish that could be the reality instead.
in saying that, the books show no matter where or when the human race has evolved the trates are still the same. the story,s grip you and keep you held untill the end.

The entire foundation series are incredibly insightful.

Editorial reviews

First of a three-book series covering the world of remote tomorrows, the effectiveness of this first volume is curtailed by its attempt to cover more than a century in time with its many generations of characters. Psychohistorian Seldon senses the coming crash of the galactic empire, prepares a chosen corps of his best students to colonize a remote planet where war cannot impede his work. The story of this colony's survival and eventual command of the broken empire sustains the narrative which is- this time-better science than fiction. (Kirkus Reviews)
