About halfway through Asimov's Foundation. I really enjoyed the first chapter and was assuming that I would read at least the original trilogy, but I'm bogging down. Maybe it's just too much politics for me in the midst of the real-life election. Not sure. I know it's a classic, but I'm curious how other people actually feel about it...
The politics is one of the good things in the Empire/Foundation-stories imho, but I never really liked how Asimov writes women (of all ages) -his men were okay, I suppose, his boys too, but somehow he seems utterly unable to write women.

I just ordered the fifth novel
