I was in the library this morning picking up my course pack for the new term and I figured I might as well pick up some book for my bedtime reading. Browsing through the fiction section, my eyes fell upon the words ‘ISAAC ASIMOV’ in big bold letters on a book with a blue and golden cover. Underneath that it said ‘The Foundation Novels’. The book I picked up is titled ‘Foundation And Earth’ and is apparently ‘among the great masterworks of science fiction’ (quoted behind the book).
I’ve known about Asimov and his rules of robots for a very long time. But I never tried reading any of his books for fear of them being hopelessly outdated. This is the era of technology where having the entire world’s information available to me without moving a muscle is the daily way of life (Eat your heart out Star Trek computer!).
But this time, I decided to give it a shot. The summary behind the book seems interesting enough. And I’ll try to read the book without any expectations. Will see if I can post my review of the book in one of the upcoming posts.
