The fifth novel in Asimov”s popular Foundation series opens with second thoughts. Councilman Golan Trevize is wondering if he was right to choose a collective mind as the best possible future for humanity over the anarchy of contentious individuals, nations and planets.

To test his conclusion, he decides he must know the past and goes in search of legendary Earth, all references to which have been erased from galactic libraries. Fundatia si Pamantul cristi.

Tags Science fictionAmerican Literature. Description The fifth novel in Asimov”s popular Foundation asomov opens with second thoughts.

Media reviews New York Times. Asimov has failed to integrate the necessary background into the current action in a way that can make sense to a new reader as he did so deftly in ”Foundation’s Edge” and ”Robots and Empire”.

Worse, he is too busy referring the reader to positions staked out in the earlier books to create fresh sources of dramatic tension. In his younger days, when he chronicled the decline and fall of the Galactic Empire through plots borrowed from Roman history, he tagged his narratives with playful quotations from the ”Encyclopedia Galactica.

His characters are so conscious of their awesome responsibilities that they lack spontaneity. As eager as I am to know what Renaxcuta. Asimov has in store for the galaxy, I hope that he continues this rebascuta out of real conviction and not merely from habit or a sense of obligation. I would prefer a few loose ends to a series of backward-looking sequels. Does the Foundation series really end here? Near the end of the novel, we are given a clue to what may be yet to come.

Now we fundatka a hint that there may be intelligent alien life in other galaxies and that fundxtia and these aliens may be destined to meet.

Isaac Asimov is an amazingly prolific writer, and he has been well rewarded for his recent efforts. I would not want to bet that “Foundation and Earth” is really the conclusion of the Foundation series.

User reviews LibraryThing member isabelx. If the mission is crucial to your decision concerning Gaia, it is of crucial importance to Gaia, and so Gaia must go with you, if only to try to protect you.

Galon Trevize reminds me of Nickie Haflinger in “Shockwave Rider”, being extremely arrogant, convinced that he is always right, and prone to behaving as if he is constantly surrounded by fools and even though he does have the knack of making correct decisions on insufficient data, Trevize is not always right.

The search for Earth led the crew of the Far Star to some of the Spacer worlds that readers of the Robot novels will recognise, and the revelation of who is ultimately responsible for the Seldon Plan led to a satisfactory conclusion.

At last, some science fiction with a proper ending! The asimof of this book is far below that asimpv other books in the foundation series. The ending has much to be desired and invalidates much of the previous foundation books.

Save yourself the time and don’t read it. I haven’t gotten to the prequels, yet, and after this one I’m not sure if I will—and this is the weakest of them so far.

For Asimov fans, it’s worth reading just to see where he wanted to end up, but it’s frankly a weaker book than the others. Which can be forgiven. Asimov was getting old when he wrote this and had already suffered the heart attack and contracted the illness which ultimately led to his death.

Check Wikipedia for more details. It’s a sad story. I’ll forgive a guy facing a terminal illness if he wants to take his story off the rails a bit in the 11th hour. That said, my chief complaints two of them are these: He doesn’t even use curse words. So I immediately assumed he was a little prudish. Nothing wrong with that.

I was enjoying the books enough. The stories were solid and well thought out. But in this one, out of the blue, he has a couple of sex scenes. Not graphically drawn out, but more than hinted at. In fact, he goes on about the main character’s “stamina” as if it were a source of pride.

Furthermore, the fact that the main character was so good in bed becomes a key plot point and helps resolve a minor crisis.

Sloppy writing aside, that’s completely out of character from the previous 4 books. It should probably have been called “Galaxia and Earth” but it wouldn’t have fit the motif. Also, why take the denouement of the previous book, and then write an entirely new book around the main character whining about it when he was the person who decided the fate of the universe at the end of that last book? I’m getting off topic here. And why spend an entire novel with Bliss griping about Trevize’s sexual exploits, almost as if she were jealous, and then never explain that?

Okay, perhaps I have more than a few complaints, but whatever. If you’re a fan of the series, read on, just temper your expectations. I have been listening to the Foundation series audiobooks, read by Larry A. McKeever, over the past few months. Considering the first Foundation novel was written in – and this particular one – I can’t help but feel humility curling about my bones as I attempt to formulate a conducive analysis of this series, let alone this book.

Foundation and Earth is unique in the series as it continues the adventures of the characters from the previous book – all other Foundation novels span hundreds of years and rarely focus too long on any one particular character, let alone for the span of TWO books.

So the three heroes journey onward searching for Earth. You never really understand WHY, not in the clearest sense, until the last chapter. And then you are left with a tantalizing cliffhanger in the form of a meaningful glance. Asimov’s prose is clear, succinct and dry.

No fluff or excess, you read only what is necessary, not a hair more. Although I appreciate Asimov’s brevity, there was much that I could have enjoyed in the form of character development, background, and explanation of action.

If it weren’t for the naive and selfless scientist Pellorat, the reader would be completely in the dark about much of the plot development. I regret books and stories that abuse character thus. Wish I could have given this book a solid five. I enjoyed fuhdatia progression of the plot but the characters felt two dimensional and the ‘point’ of the whole adventure seemed obtuse. But I am gleefully journeying on in the Foundation series – on to McKeever and the sixth book!

In this book, dissatisfied with his decision, Trevise and Pelorat decide to continue their search through the varied worlds of the galaxy, this time joined by the Gaian Bliss. An encounter with an official on Comporallan leads to the party learing of the long forgotten Spacer worlds along with what claims to be the actual co-ordinates of three of these worlds.


After a bit of jiggery pokery with his superb computer, Trevise fujdatia to locate an area of space consistant with the Fundatis worlds – systems not listed in the ship’s maps taking us to the remnants of renasvuta Spacer world listed as Aurora in their ancient records but fundaria planet is falling to pieces after being deserted by humanity.

Solaria, their second stop, is in far better nick but is even more dangerous when they’re located by the owner of the estate they had impinged on. Barely escaping from there funadtia their lives they reach a third world denuded of much of it’s atmosphere but home to an overly active form of moss where they find the co-ordinates of all the Spacer worlds which enables them to find the co-ordinates of Earth but there tehy find those tales of a radio-active planet are no exageration.

On the large moon, they find the secret of why earth had been hidden and Trevise gets an answer as to why he made his choice. In this book we meet R Daneel Olivaw from Asimov’s earlier robot novels and I have to say that in this, fndatia was pretty ineffective though to be fair, he was senescing as well. Written after the Foundation trilogy, it falls immediately after them in sequence.

Repetitous, boring, gratuitous science and sex. The second sequel to the Foundation trilogy. Having prevented war between the First and Second Renascutz, the heroes quest to find the legendary birthplace of humanity; the mythical planet Earth.

Works nicely as a trip through Asimov’s earlier worlds seen thousands of years in the future. Asimov’s final installment resolves the series partly, though not comfortably against my own preconceptions. We are of course left with a cliffhanger; I believe Asimov’s estate recently released a next installment. This was not as interesting an ending now as swift a read as the predecessors but it is intriguing still. Unfortunately, although the premise is interesting, the actual story and plot fail to deliver.

A man that, for some unknown reason, always makes the right judgement calls, intuitively, is called to make a choice on the fate of humanity and the galaxy.

He does so, just because he’s always right, and then decides to go on a hunt for earth because he knows In any case, regardless of that fallacy, the storytelling is very tiring and dull. The – uninteresting – characters engage into mundane conversations over-analyzing the same things, again and again. It gets better towards the end, but only ever so slightly. I found this book abandoned on a ticket counter in an airport. Never having heard of the Foundation series, I only planned on reading it until my plane was boarding.

Then I thought I’d just drop it off at my destination airport. Then I just took it home and finished it. Then I read all of the Foundation books and very much enjoyed them all, especially how they tie into both the Spacer and Robot novel series. Suffice to say, I definitely recommend this and all of the Foundation novels. This volume suffers doubly in that it leaves you hanging at the end.

The story is that Asimov intended there to be one more book, but was never able to put it together. Started off and ended weak but it was a good romp in between. Planet to planet of different sorts.
