Isaac Asimov's Robots and Foundation series

I really like the Robot stories, especially Caves of Steel, and never really got into the foundation series.  Kinda makes me sad that he tied them all together in such a ham fisted way.

Agree. I tried to read foundation 3 times and failed.
All the robot stories are awesome.

I am the exact reverse.

I am headed into the robot series this holiday for time number I've-lost-count.  We shall see......

I read and enjoyed them all, but Foundation is what I keep coming back to for repeat reading.
