Foundation and Empire (Foundation, #2) by Isaac Asimov

Into the Wild

Read Foundation and Empire (Foundation, #2) Online Free - Led by its founding father, the great psychohistorian Hari Seldon, and taking advantage of its superior science and technology, the Foundation has survived the greed and barbarism of its neighboring warrior-planets. Yet now it must face the Empire—still the mightiest force in the Galaxy even in its death throes. When an ambitious general determined to restore the Empire’s glory turns the vast Imperial fleet toward the Foundation, the only hope for the small planet of scholars and scientists lies in the prophecies of Hari Seldon.

But not even Hari Seldon could have predicted the birth of the extraordinary creature called The Mule—a mutant intelligence with a power greater than a dozen battle fleets… a power that can turn the strongest-willed human into an obedient slave.

Less episodic than the first (Foundation), which was a plus. But it makes all the more apparent Asimov's complete inability to create memorable or sympathetic characters. This means that each of the two halves read like over-long short stories. Part I is a suspense-thriller, solved by a ridiculou...

Isaac Asimov was 31 when he first published the SF classic Foundation in 1951. The next year he came out with the sequel, Foundation and Empire. Unlike many series these days, or even a traditional series or trilogy (which this would be for 30 years) the first part, introducing readers to Hari Sel...

Humans will fail and try again, win and then fail, fail and then w...

Isaac Asimov based Foundation and Empire on Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire; if you're in any doubt, consider the following lines from his well-known poem "The Foundation of SF Success":So success is not a mystery, just brush up on your history, and borrow day by day. Take an Empire that was...

I read it half in Italian (my physical copy) and half in English (my digital copy) and I've come to the conclusion that the Italian translation sucks. Hard. "It was strange that the Glory of the Galaxy should be a rotting corpse." I have gone over and over what to say in this review, but I realized...

Differs considerably from its prequel while maintaining the same thrill throughout.

Split into two stories instead of many like the first book, this one feels a lot more streamlined and the Foundation has met two of its greatest foes. One of which was expected, and one that wasn't. The path back to stable galactic civilization is a tortuous one. The foundation always knew that it...

Foundation and Empire is sadly not as interesting as the first book in the series. It was hard to get through at times, mostly because of a total lack of suspense, depth and real characters (which is usually also the case in the first book, but that one easily gets extra points because of the bri...

The saga continues, with the Foundation coming up against the unexpected. We are sharply reminded that psychohistory is a probabilistic science and can fail against the unpredictable. Edit to add: I was thinking of the mutant, Mule, who upset the carefully planned Foundation applecart. Yes, there's...
