Since Foundation was my first ever SF book i think its lucky it was such a good book of Asimov.
I liked the ideas,social story,the normal people characters,Mule. If it was only aliens and robots and not thought provoking i wouldn't be the avid reader of SF i am today thats for sure. The history and sweep of it was the best.
Its funny i barely remember the actions scenes ie what people these days want and demand from modern space opera. I remember the ideas,the history,characters.
