Foundation

Monday, May 27, 2013


I don't know where to start. 
I'm beginning to wonder if it's the books I read that are confusing or if I'm just generally confused. 

After reading Everything is Illuminated, I wanted to read a sci-fi book to get back to my Game of Thrones roots. A friend of mine recommended the Foundation series so I thought I'd give it a try. 

I even went so far as to read the physical book and not use my kindle.

I was not impressed. 

I often found myself going through the motions of reading without really digesting anything. 

The book is split up into several different short stories that have very little to do with one another. That wouldn't have been a bad thing had the stories themselves been interesting

Also, the book was written in the 40's, so the futuristic aspects of it seemed completely outdated

There are 7 books in the series but I think I'll be stopping at #1. 

My quest to find a book that I'm addicted to as much as Game of Thrones is not working well. 
I've decided to switch gears a bit and read something completely out of left field.

Fingers crossed!
