And in the vastness of this human empire, decay has set ttantor and cracks are growing; a galactic dark-age so grand in scope few can even see it’s dimensions. If something so complicated and so important is to be developed by someone so brilliant, I wanted to see the work — the sweat, the long hours poured into research and calculations over burning candle at midnight in the Mycogen sector, and I wanted to see the pieces of this powerful science falling into place with some greater tightly-wrought logic.
It is certainly NOT a necessary read, if all you want is to read the original books, but it is entertaining. That aside, this is not one of my favorite Asimov books. Foundation Publication Order 7 books. I did, however, guess the twist well in advance.

I’m tarntor and less motivated to finish this and book 4 looks more of the same from the first 20 pages, but I’ve been reassured that the focus changes as book 4 was written 20 years after the publication of this original trilogy.
Therefore at least this part of the book would be located after the events of Foundation and ChaosFoundation’s Triumph and the first chapter of Foundation. I was blown away. Also, shortly before his death inAsimov approved an outline for three novels, known as the Caliban trilogy by Roger MacBride Allenset between Robots and Empire and the Empire series.

But I am glad I read it, and it does have really enjoyable moments. Jul 05, Apatt rated it really liked it Shelves: I found it super interesting to hear the verbalization of all the theories about what the second foundation was and it started to make me a bit introspective on all of the unanswered questions dr this universe.
There is no single ground-shaking discovery or torrent of insight that sets Seldon on the right path, no ” Eureka! But then the second half introduced us to yet more new characters, most of which I cared little about or otherwise had trouble telling apart, and had so many silly twists regarding who is in fact holding the truth about the Second Foundation that I started to I have mixed feelings about this one. From Robots to Foundations.

Seldon’s calculations also show there is a way to limit this interregnum to just one thousand years. In the process they are “caught” by one of the High Elders, an artificer whose machinations had lured the duo into a trap; rather than Seldon doing the manipulating, it was he who was beguiled into following a course of action pursuant to Mycogenian interests.
Another alternative is to read the books in their original order of publication, since reading the Foundation prequels prior to reading the Foundation Trilogy fundamentally alters the original narrative structure of the trilogy by spoiling what were originally presented as plot surprises.
Press this button and you will get that twitch. Maybe—there are four more books, after all.
