So I finally made it: I have read one of the quintessential books of the science-fiction genre. I've finished the first of seven books in the Foundation series. While it wasn't as magnificently Earth-shattering as I had hoped, it was still a darn good read. Impressively satisfying ending, but with an unusually slow-paced latter half, this book showed Asimov's typical emphasis on logic and conversation (preferred to emotions/romance and action). It's amazing how clearly defined his characters are, and he only defaults to physical descriptions when vitally important. Good writer; good story.
