Trsntor really does not make any sense to me, especially since many characters where hoping to be saved by the Second foundation in the previous book.

What happened to Han Trantro in the end, is that one vague mention in the end the only info about what happened to him? Charles Brown There is only a brief answer. After the Mule died, Han was put in charge, but he didn’t have the Mule’s mental powers and everybody rebelled. Presumably Han was still under the Mule’s trantkr and nobody could cure him of it.

The present is the Foundation, at war tgantor an enemy with a terrible “psychic” power, i. The third chapter of the Foundation series is better than the two preceding it, with more action and suspense. It’s the final showdown between the “Mule” and the Second Foundation, represented in the final battle by its “First Speaker”.
But above all the homeworld of the Xiclo Foundation will now be revealed. Siamo alla resa dei conti tra il “Mulo” e la Seconda Fondazione, rappresentata nello scontro decisivo dal suo “Primo Oratore”.
Ma soprattutto ci sta per essere rivelato il pianeta madre della Seconda Fondazione. View all 6 comments. Twenty-nine years later in Asimov would publish Foundation’s Edgebut for most of the golden age, the Foundation trilogy would form a template though never completely duplicated for SF excellence.
Essentially divided into two parts — the first part a conclusion of Foundation and Empire with The Mule and then the conclusion of the Foundation story.
The search for the ultra-secretive Second Foundation continues across the galaxy.
Foundation series – Wikipedia
Both the first part and the second had themes of a chess match between actors with several conflicting solutions being developed and supported. Parts of this, especially discussions about the advanced mental Second Foundation reminded me obliquely of Arthur C.
Not as strong as the other two, this is still a solid SF story and a good finale for a great SF trilogy. View all 7 comments. Second Foundation is a decent enough conclusion to the original Foundation trilogy, although it was by far the weakest book in the trilogy in my eyes.
The problem is that whereas the first book, despite its own flaws, is both intriguing and original, both the second and third volumes focus on deviation from, and restoration of, the psychohistorical master plan of Hari Seldon.
The whole story of the Mule feels quite pointless and could be considered the weakest point e, Asimov’s ideas. Both the se Second Foundation is a decent enough conclusion to the original Foundation trilogy, although it was by far the weakest book in the trilogy in my eyes. Both the sequels seem to be diversions adding little of value to the story as a whole.
Still, the Foundation series is a classic for a reason, and I am happy to have read them. Whether I will continue with the newer books is a matter for another time.
Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series is often cited amongst the nerdegalian as the best sci-fi series evar.
It’s set, as you may guess, far into the future where a man discovers that Rome I’m not normally a fan of hard science fiction, and reading this trilogy kind of reminds me Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series is often cited amongst trantlr nerdegalian as the best sci-fi series evar.
I’m not normally a fan of hard science fiction, and reading this trilogy kind of reminds me of why. It actually has a lot of trantot I DO like about sci-fi: I also like the idea of Asimov’s psychohistory, which is like what the “soft” sciences of psychology, sociology, and economics would be if they were advanced over thousands of years and distilled down to almost pure mathematics to the point where they could predict the actions of entire societies over hundreds or even thousands of years.
That’s a pretty dang cool idea. Unfortunately, this trilogy also has, in spades, many of the things I don’t typically like about sci-fi, especially well aged sci-fi: The latter really can’t be helped, but it is kind of offsetting to see characters stymied by situations a personal computer or cel phone would solve.
There are approximately fifteen thousand other books set in the Foundation universe, but I’m not in any hurry to read them. This was a nice change of pace and the books are short, but it’s the kind of thing I have to take in moderate doses.

I really liked the idea of the Second Foundation doing what it had to do to get the Seldon Plan back on line, because of the problems that the Mule caused, but the space battles passed quickly and there were no ciclk, aside from Arkady and Preem that really captured me this time.
Callia was okay, and the Admiral was maybe a little more than a filler, but the cast really paled in comparison to the Mule, Bayta and Torin. Are we to assume that the Foundation goes on its merry way through the next six hundred years and become the Second Empire without a hitch? Maybe—there are four more books, after all. He overexplains things, and I find his world a bit hard to immerse myself in. I see it in every book I read. This final book of the original trilogy was weaker than the trantpr two by quite a bit.
The first story Search By the Mule is more of a conclusion to the cliffhanger from the second book. The second story is a conclusion of sorts yrantor the first trilogy. Both stories rely on a convoluted web of reverse psychology and reverse psychology backfireand are annoying to read.
Perhaps because of these intricacies, the characters are all tranhor flat. I have mixed feelings about this one.
The first half, dealing with the Mule and captain Han Pritcher, two of the best characters in the saga is really quite interesting and probably one of the most engaging sections in the whole trilogy. Ciclk 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.

I don’t think I’ll be trqntor any more Foundation books, but I don’t necessarily regret reading these three. Jul 31, Anda P. It’s ok, but I’m not sure I really understand all the fame.
I preferred Clarke and Heinlein. My initial plan for this review was to draw parallels between the ‘Foundation’ trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy. In both series, the first story proved a groundbreaking original, the darker second installment featured stronger characterization plus ’empire’ in the title and the third included an element to appeal to kids, with a child protagonist taking the place of the Ewoks.
Also, both series have prequels. This comparison didn’t rate more than one paragraph, however, ciiclo I’m includin My initial plan for this review was to draw parallels between the ‘Foundation’ trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy. This comparison didn’t rate more than one paragraph, however, so I’m including a more standard list of literary strengths and weaknesses for free!
For strengths, this wl features the series’ best character; a whip-smart preadolescence girl named Arkady whose mix of cleverness and naivete is the perfect salve for Asimov’s normal mix of grizzled schemers.
When Arkady is involved, Second Foundation morphs into an adventure novel, with our heroine playing the role of interrogator, eavesdropper, stow-away, confidant, detective and fugitive. Alas, while Asimov branches out successfully, his go-to game of plausible sci-fi featuring ambitious men and their grand schemes goes off the rails.
The novel’s major players The Second Foundation of the title is a cabal of psychologists with psychic super-powers. They’re intriguing antagonists on paper, but Asimov spends an inordinate amount of time trying to define how these ckclo powers work, how they can be countered and what the Second Foundation’s mysterious methods are all about. But all this analysis merely underlines how incomprehensible the Second Foundation is and how arbitrary their abilities feel.
If Asimov had stayed outside his comfort zone for the whole novel, he may have crafted a grand adventure to stand with the classics. I guess when it comes to Foundations, the first time is the charm. Man, I don’t even know why this took me so long! I’ve been traveling a bunch most recently to Floridaand hoarding tons of craft beer also, admittedly, drinking it But, more to the point, I think it’s just that Second Foundation is kind of mediocre.
While the first two books of the series are incredibly fun and well-paced, Second Foundation has much like The Moon is a Harsh Mistress Man, I don’t even know why this took me so long! While the first two books of the series are incredibly fun and well-paced, Second Foundation has much like The Moon is a Harsh Mistress a marked lack of tension.
Also like The Moon is a Harsh Mistress – there’s a definite sense of the inevitable. tranto
Such is the Seldon Plan – even if the Mule has derailed the plan, even if the whole cilo power struggle is now just a big question mark Also, the characters didn’t really matter to me, for whatever reason – their lives don’t feel like they are of any particular consequence. They each have their own unique attributes, and they’re clever and interesting, for the most part
