Maybe it’s because it’s the last Asimov novel I am likely to read, now that I have completed my re-read of this entire series. the man who holds the key to the future an apocalyptic power to be known forever after as the Foundation. The short epilogue offers a worthwhile and touching retrospective of Seldon and his contribution to galactic civilization. As such it had for me at least an aura of sadness throughout, exacerbated by the sad demises of several of Seldon's loved ones. There is plenty of tension, plenty of reversals, and lots of characters beyond Seldon get their time in the limelight.

However, I would now like to make a clarification: my judgment is definitely not objective, 'cause I love Asimov's spying fantasy science and his fascinating theory of spatial colonization. The story is broken down into four parts, each focusing on one of Seldon's allies being under duress mainly because of the psycho-history project. After a ten-year period of relative silence on Trantor, the remains of the political faction exploit Trantor's faults in an attempted coup. I think that Prelude should really be read prior to tackling this one, as it picks up the theme and situation shortly after Prelude ended and continues through the latter years of Hari Seldon's life as he strives to perfect the psychohistory concept and pave the way for the Second Foundation.The trouble is once I start on the Foundation novels (and Prelude was a group read) I have to continue. I lived and breathed all the wonderful ideas from the original trilogy and I had really liked the sequels and then the prequels came along and I was all, Hari Seldon, Hari Seldon. Para quienes leímos Fundación y en especial, Segunda Fundación resulta interesantísimo conocer no solamente qué pasó antes de las Fundaciones sino qué es lo que pensaba Hari Seldon y cómo se fueron materializando poco a poco y a pesar de tantos enemigos, las ideas del psicohistoriador. When Santanni explodes in rebellion, Raych dies in a defense of its university while the ship carrying Manella and Bellis to Anacreon disappears mid-travel. Hari Seldon, the developer of psycho-history, the basis of the Foundation series, is pretty much the same character as Elijah Baley, in the Robot series, and Golan Trevize in the Foundation sequels, and probably most of Asimov's leading characters in other novels.

el valor de las novelas de Isaac Asimov radica no en su prosa ni su narrativa sino en su trasfondo filosófico.It's really cool to see how everything came together and was almost lost to start the Foundation and the telepathic Second Foundation which Wanda started on Trantor. Like other previous science fiction works by Asimov, the book was a commercial success, becoming a New York Times bestselling work.

I've always loved the clarity and humor of Asimov's science articles, but I've never been a fan of his fiction, and this book points up why. PINEAPPLE NOT INCLUDED ABOUT THE BOOKS: FOUNDATION S EDGE: At last, the costly and bitter war between the two Foundations had come to an end.Like the first Foundation prequel, Prelude to Foundation, I found this a bit of a bloated snoozefest and admit to liberal skimming and skipping.

Forward the Foundation is a sequel to Prelude to Foundation, two books that Asimov wrote many years after the original Foundation trilogy. After Demerzel "proves" he's not a robot by laughing in public, he blackmails Joranum into accepting exile to the planet he claims to come from.
