Julian Meynell's Books

I like Books.

Foundation

Foundation - Isaac Asimov It's origins in a set of linked short stories are clear. It has interesting ideas. It suffers a lot from being essentially a set of cardboard cut-outs talking. The grand sweep of history is entertaining, and the science of psychohistory is delightful nonsense.

Asimov as a prose stylist is only OK.

In the end, I am not sure that it deserves the classic status that it has, but it is not a bad book.
