Where are you from?
Avp, I won't say I hate everything Asimov has ever penned, because Foundation is actually the first (and so far the only) book of his that I've read. But yes, I thought the first book blew - I'm not a fan of stories with static characters, and I don't think of anyone from Foundation as particularly clever as he is fabricated
. I think even Asimov will be surprised if anyone found the characters in his first book as multidimensional.
I'm reading Odyssey now.
