Book #18: Foundation

I get to step into the sci-fi world again! I’m actually super excited about this.

Foundation is my first Asimov, too. I don’t have a lot of expectations for this book other than I expect it to be FREAKING AMAZING. Or at least pretty good.

Now that I know that I like reading science fiction almost as much as I enjoy watching it, I’m less nervous about approaching books like this. This is one of the things that I hoped would come of this project. I tried out a genre I wouldn’t normally read and discovered I like it!

Anyway, from what I’ve read about Foundation it sounds like the plot is going to be suspiciously similar to the fall of the Roman Empire. I guess since the book was first published in 1951, that is to be expected. Maybe I’m wrong about this, but it seems like this “struggle” to keep society afloat against “barbarians” seems just a bit familiar.
