It seemed bloated at times, as Asimov tried to capture his own feelings of aging, tried to incorporate most all of his other works into a unified tapestry, as well as develop more depth among a more diverse cast of characters. El argumento está bien planteado y sobre él se desenvuelven de manera ordenada y clara los problemas y su eventual resolución. Eppure è un romanzo che tiene avvinti ancora, che ti fa andare avanti (anche se già ricordi qualche colpo di scena) e ti rende speranzoso di vedere l'evolversi del grande progetto di Hari Sheldon: poter prevedere a livello di statistiche e probabilità il procedere del genere umano, gli intoppi, le scarse possibilità di successo. Dune is awesome but the series as a whole crumbles under its own mysticism and becomes pretty incomprehensible. Knjiga koja daje najvise informacija do sada o tome sta je "Psihoistorija" ali isto tako i najdublje ulazi u intimni svet Harija Seldona, njegove porodice i prijatelja.

The story is broken down into four parts, each focusing on one of Seldon's allies being under duress mainly because of the psycho-history project. Seldon is constantly depressed about aging and losing his loved ones and I can't help but think Asimov was projecting his own fears of age and death as he wrote this.I lived and breathed all the wonderful ideas from the original trilogy and I had really liked the sequels and then the prequels came along and I was all, Hari Seldon, Hari Seldon. printing:- Synopsis: For more than forty years, Isaac Asimov thrilled millions with his bestselling 'Foundation' series, which has sold over six million copies around the world. It provides the finishing touches on the life of his fictional psychohistorian, Hari Seldon, and makes several revelations about certain characters, such as his wife Dors, that are only hinted at in the first. Not only does this volume tie up most of the remaining loose ends in the sporadic Foundation series, but by focusing on the latter half of Hari Seldon's life, it provides Asimov with a platform for expressing his own views on growing older. Ma andate a leggervi "Abissi d'acciaio" e il ciclo dei Robot, e capirete perché persino lui è una figura commovente, nel suo sopravvivere (inesorabilmente e da solo) all'umanità.

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. I had decided that his short stories were better than his novels, that his novels were written like long short stories. Seldon’s mission in life is to minimize the duration of the dark age that will follow this fall, with the Foundation as the nucleus of a new empire. In fact, Asimov expressly used these last novels of his career to defiantly still engage in the exact behavior that his increasingly younger critics excoriated in his books, such as the subsumed racism of '50s-style "PG-rated" slurs like "boy," and the out-and-out sexism and sexual objectifiction of every female character. qué hacer cuando predices que la civilización (que se ha extendido por toda la galaxia) está destinada a colapsar?A menudo bromeo: que porque mientras ingenieros y abogados se dedican a las cosas útiles, alguien debía ocuparse de las importantes, que porque era la única facultad que daba tantas becas, que porque quería bajar de peso… Para ser sincero, pocas veces termino respondiendo esta pregunta de manera seria. This book is the second prequel and is a direct continuation of the preceding Prelude to Foundation. I do not recommend Forward the Foundation to any but the most diehard of Asimov's fans (who may be more delighted with it than I was), and although I hesitate, I have to rate this one at only two out of five stars.

Among those seeking to turn psychohistory into the greatest weapon known to man are a populist political demagogue, the weak-willed Emperor Cleon I, and a ruth less militaristic general. Seldon also has meaningful relationships with Eto Demerzel (who is Daneel and ends up being the only robot left behind on Earth's moon in the final chronological book in the series). Secondo perchè appena si leggono i trafiletti tratti dall'"Enciclopedica Galattica" come si fa a non proseguire con la lettura. As such it had for me at least an aura of sadness throughout, exacerbated by the sad demises of several of Seldon's loved ones. Even when Seldon reaches the age of 60, I’m not sure he would be as “infirm” as you make him out to be.I don’t really feel inclined to read the subsequently published Foundation books by other authors, what I would rather do is go back to reread his early robots and empire books.
