Bringing the Empire sequence to a close is probably the most enjoyable of the three books.

I'm not sure if it actually was written on a chapter by chapter adventure serial basis but Asimov takes the concept and runs with it for full enjoyable effect. Each chapter filled with intrigue and entertainment ending at what could almost certainly be described as a cliffhanger. I imagined waiting the fortnight or month until the next issue would have been quite frustrating but incredibly rewarding.

An espionage/mystery novel in a similar style to the Lije Baley stories but with characters you can't quite love as much.

I'm now at the cusp of the Foundation prequels and I feel a lot more prepared for it than I did 3 years ago when i looked the first page and panicked.
