Asimov’s writing got better as he got older, and even though there’s little to no action, Hari Seldon and Dors visiting the various regions of Trantor and experiencing new cultures and dangers was fascinating. I couldn’t finish it.

Asimov asomov Hari Seldon all over Trantor, the planet where the Emperor lives, in what, to me, was a boring journey with no apparent reason. Here in the great multidomed capital of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technological and cultural complexity.

This is a prequel to his first ‘Foundation’ book written over 25 years prior and before he decided to tie most of his book series together.


Fortunately Asimov’s writing style and lack of reference to specific technology doesn’t make the first trilogy seem dated. Something made me think of Isaac Asimov. None of the clever word play. The Foundation Trilogy is an epic and legendary sci-fi story; epic implies a larger than life breath and width of the story; legendary implies that a few elements remains mysterious, in the shade, letting imagination fill these blank spaces; Prelude To Foundation is nothing of all this.
