Asimov, especially the Foundation Trilogy, should be read in the original language… at least the (first) German translation proved that translators should read a book to the end before starting to translate. That guy - the translator - quite obviously didn't like several of the author's decisions (especially regarding the Mule) and tried to 'improve' on the original work. Well, his translation kind of ruined the plot of volume 2.

Let's generalize and say that Asimov is not about characters.
