Foundation and Empire | Isaac Asimov
Pickpick

The beginning of this book was really slow. Honestly, I wasn't a fan until about a third of the way in. Once I reached the section with the mule the story really picked up. Characters were introduced that made you care about them and the ending surprised me. I'm looking forward to reading Second Foundation because I need answers to the questions that I thought would be answered by the end of this book.

• Clearly the product of Asimov's brilliant, scientific mind, this story should have impressed me more than it did. My first Asimov, I was excited to read some sci-fi by one of the masters of the genre; however, it fell flat for me on account of my dislike of the characters and being confused for some parts (OK, most parts) of the story. I should have liked the two MCs (they were children) but I thought they were incredible brats ⬇️

Readage ...and I found myself getting bored with the story very quickly. This is probably just a case of "It's not you -- it's me" and I'll definitely try another Asimov in the future. It wasn't horrible by any means, but I had to spend too much time trying to follow the story (for instance, which character was speaking, etc) which took me out of it too often. It was so-so for me, at this time • 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘ve read a few of his now, and felt this way about all of them. The best for me was I, Robot, which really a collection of short stories, so still not a lot of connection to MC‘s. 2mo
Readage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa ? "I, Robot" is on the list; here's hoping I find at least some of his stories enjoyable ? 2mo

sadly parts of Asimov's writing are too tedious for my tastes but I was absolutely not expecting for him to have such a dry sense of humor throughout parts of this book and make what are effectively programming jokes 😅 still this was an interesting read if nothing else

So I‘d only intended to buy The Little Blue Kite and In the Dream House while I was out book shopping... but then I found this while I was browsing. It is a book I want to read, but I‘d planned on just borrowing it from the library... but that cover though. 😍 My boyfriend also shared my #coverlove so I ended up bringing this one home too.

LauraJ Haven‘t seen that version before. It‘s gorgeous. 2mo
DuckOfDoom Really pretty cover 😍 are all of the foundation series released in this style? 2mo
shadowspeak17 @DuckOfDoom I don‘t think so, but I‘m not 100% sure, so I might be wrong. 2mo

bracing myself for the upcoming cold front with some fresh video game soundtracks and a well-loved copy of I, Robot from the local kolache shop's book exchange ❄️
