Foundation - Isaac Asimov
The first book of Asimov's most famous series, focusing on the fall of the Galactic Empire 10,000 years in the future and the attempts by one man to safeguard the knowledge and resurrection of civilisation.
Asimov's talents are more in the realm of concepts and ideas, rather than dialogue and characterisation. The book, however, has stood the test of time and is required reading to appreciate the later novels.
