    Slow beginning & middle, exciting ending

    Over all, as much as I hate to say it, I was disappointed in this one. Asimov seems to have a habit of building up towards a "Seldon Crisis," then skipping ahead by several years just when things start to get exciting. His characters are difficult to get attached to, and he doesn't really introduce them. They just kind of appear and disappear, along with plot elements, seemingly at will. That being said, the last five or so chapters really were quite good. Unfortunately, you have to get through 20+ chapters of back story and build-up to get to them. I'm not sure if I want to jump right into the next one or not. I guess it will depend on whether or not it picks up where this one left off.
