Description

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. Each decade sees Seldon having to deal with a new crisis and making new headway on his important psychohistory project (the statistical ability to predict the future). Of course, having read Foundation first (decades ago), it is difficult for me to look at this book in the same way a reader might who has not read Foundation first – I was constantly (and pleasantly) comparing the thought processes and younger life of the incomparable Hari Seldon in this book to the vision we are given of Seldon in Foundation, when he is established as an old and very wise demigod and thorough planner of human civilization for the next millennia. Questo libro racconta la vita di Hari Seldon e del suo progetto di salvare la caduta dell'Impero con la Psicostoria, ed è davvero bello.

Meanwhile someone or something outside of both Foundations seems to be orchestrating events to suit its own ominous purpose. A nearly-flawless ivory hardcover with sharp corners and crisp text on spine; tight, square, unmarked, tidy; minimal wear, if any.At the beginning of Forward the Foundation Hari Seldon is 60-year-old, and the novel tells the story of the last ten years of his life, as he struggles to put the Foundation together. Raych offers to infiltrate the conspiracy, but its leader, Namarti (who was an associate of Joranum) easily recognizes Raych and has him drugged and brainwashed to use him as a weapon. qué hacer cuando predices que la civilización (que se ha extendido por toda la galaxia) está destinada a colapsar? This one isn't as good as the first prequel, which itself had some of the same problems I found here.

So, having denigrated the object of my early SF literary admiration, let me say that I haven't read anything of Asimov's that isn't pretty good. Completed just weeks before his death in April 1992, 'Forward The Foundation' offers a dramatic climax to the 'Foundation' series, and is perhaps the greatest moment in science fiction to date. En este libro Asimov plantea preguntas sobre la democracia, la estabilidad política, la importancia del acceso al conocimiento y la cultura: cuestiones que para Asimov resultaban de suma importancia en su época y contexto y que creo que, con el auge de Internet y un mayor acceso a medios digitales de información, siguen siendo vigentes. Years later, Hari dies alone in the building that once hosted his project, with the full knowledge that, by his actions, the two Foundations that will form the Second Galactic Empire (the First Foundation on the planet Terminus, the Second Foundation on Trantor itself) have been born. In the audio book that I just heard, I think this was made to seem even more so by the narrator, Larry McKeever.The Foundation series has enthralled readers for more than 40 years, and this work is a dramatic climax. Foundation s Edge (still sealed - pristine); Forward to Foundation (still sealed - one negligible rub to the page ends); Foundation and Earth (still sealed - pristine); Foundation Trilogy (a couple of negligible rubs to the gilt page ends); Prelude to Foundation (a couple of minor rubs to the gilt page ends) (SEE PICS FOR FURTHER DETAILS). pretty bad compared to the rest of the series and especially it's predecessor Prelude to Foundation. Includes Titles: Prelude to Foundation, Forward the Foundation, Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation, Foundation's Edge, Foundation and Earth.
