The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 21: Foundation

I’m a bit at a loss to describe how I feel about Isaac Asimov’s book, Foundation. In general, I really enjoy science fiction and I understand that this is just the first of a series, but I found it difficult to get into as it seemed I would just begin to get to know a group of characters and the narrative would skip ahead decades or centuries and “drop the needle” in another point in time and introduce a brand new set of characters – it repeatedly broke my concentration and threw me out of the storyline. Additionally, each section seemed to go from one intense intrigue to another, all play and counter-play and sly machinations as characters sought to dominate one another.
