Description

The parallels between Hari Seldon and Isaac Asimov found in this book— the last one written by Asimov before his death— and the focus on Hari Seldon as he grows old and dies, strengthen the idea that Asimov considered Seldon his literary alter ego. The main character is once again Hari Seldon, committed to the development and practical application of Psychohistory. Dick, ni su humor tan ágil y cómico como el de Douglas Adams, ni su prosa tan bella como la de Bradbury. A pesar de haber sido la última novela del buen Patillas, en la cronología de la saga de Fundación, encaja perfectamente, como un vínculo que une al Seldon recién llegado a Trántor con el anciano Seldon de Fundación. Critics such as Josh Wimmer and Alasdair Wilkins have regarded many of the opinions and viewpoints expressed by Seldon in this book as autobiographical.

His adopted son Raych emigrates with his wife and younger daughter to Santanni, though his elder daughter Wanda remains with Seldon. He is aided by his wife, Dors, who seems to possess some superhuman abilities, his adopted son and granddaughter, who have some uncanny mental abilities and several other colorful characters.Settimo ed ultimo capitolo della saga della Fondazione: capitolo, senza dubbio, inferiore ai precedenti, però comunque ha il suo perchè.

Quando abbiamo iniziato la lettura del Ciclo, noi "giovani" lettori lo abbiamo conosciuto soltanto come voce dell'Enciclopedia Galattica. Secondo perchè appena si leggono i trafiletti tratti dall'"Enciclopedica Galattica" come si fa a non proseguire con la lettura. In and of itself though Forward the Foundation is a solid novel, rather leisurely paced, as is the case of the later Asimov works from the 80s and 90s.I've always loved the clarity and humor of Asimov's science articles, but I've never been a fan of his fiction, and this book points up why. Here in the great multidomed capital of the Galactic Empire, forty billion people have created a civilization of unimaginable technological and cultural complexity.

It's really cool to see how everything came together and was almost lost to start the Foundation and the telepathic Second Foundation which Wanda started on Trantor. In the latter years of the reign of Emperor Cleon I, Seldon is dragged into the world of galactic politics by Yugo Amaryl's concern over Seldon's friend Eto Demerzel, known only to Seldon and Dors Venabili as R. It's impressive to be able to say "Asimov's Future History," and he deserves credit for devoting the last decade of his life and the last of his physical health to accomplishing this busy feat. It is an enjoyable read providing many insights into Seldon's later years especially around the setting up of the two Foundations.

Lo único malo es que algunas soluciones, por no decir todas, llegan a ser predecibles, pero cuando le tienes cariño a la historia y a los personajes las llegas a perdonar al autor :D Me da la sensación que este libro es mejor leerlo al final de toda la saga.

The series not only takes hard sic fi concepts like a intergalactic empire and space travel but overlays it with the incredible concept of psychohistory and then unravels an amazing tale of shadow governments, conspiracy, espionage, subterfuge, political brinksmanship all while exploring how different societies arrange themselves into autocracies, democracies and even communism. La literatura de Ciencia Ficción que leí los últimos años antes de entrar a la universidad me llevó a plantearme preguntas y considerar temas filosóficos que anteriormente me tenían sin cuidado.This one has a hurried feel to it, almost as if Asimov knew that his time was drawing to an end, and he wanted it finished at all costs. Asimov’s intentness upon Seldon’s discomfort around his age jumps out immediately and feels so uncomfortable to me, a 31-year-old reader. Unlike Prelude, however, there's not enough going on outside the short-term arc to make this one worthwhile.
