The last triumphant effort of the master,
By A Customer
This review is from: Forward The Foundation! (Paperback)
The Foundation series is probably THE sci-fi series. In recent years Asimov rather lost it with regard to the genre, becoming rather self indulgent and wobbling on about all manner of personal hang ups. This last effort (he died soon after completing it) is much, much better. Its rather episodic, and it definately helps if you've read the previous books in the series, but its concise, well-written, and a treat for Asimov fans. Some of the resolutions to the situations (especially Seldons wife Dors) are telegraphed but this is still a great read.
