M_Emrys, April 20, 2009 (view all comments by M_Emrys)
The beginning of what is undoubtedly Asimov's greatest creation. Using a mathematical system of his own devising that allows sociological trends to be treated statistically, Hari Seldon predicts the fall of the Galactic Empire, and sets in motion a plan to erect a second and greater empire after millennium of turmoil. This novel (actually more of a series of short stories) chronicles the first couple hundred years of that millennium. Subtler by far than most science fiction, Foundation is a thoroughly original and clever work of art.

I enjoy Asimov's books and short stories, but this one bored me. I couldn't get past the first 50 pages. On and on with tedious explanations of the past, the character telling the story of the past to people who have lived it and knew everything he was going to say. Asimov is better with robots and Earth Is Room Enough.
