Series Exciting surprise ending that remembers me the first Asimov novels of the Robot seriesVote 75 L "Impero Galattico Stava Crollando Meno "Galattico stava crollando Meno del precedente il secondo romanzo del Ciclo delle Fondazioni risulta suddiviso in soli due blocchi temporali rispettivamente 150 e 230 anni dopo la nascita della Fondazione Una nuova Crisi di Seldon si avvicina apparentemente scatenata da un nuovo temibile nemico il Mulo un essere dotato di poteri uasi soprannaturaliDevo dire che la tecnica di Isaac Asimov di descrivere per fasi o blocchi temporali le vicende che hanno portato alla caduta dell Impero e alla nascita e sviluppo della Fondazione a me piace E un tipo di fantascienza molto suggestiva a me piace E un tipo di fantascienza molto suggestiva davvero di scorrere uell Enciclopedia Galattica che pi volte ricorre nelle pagine della serie Molto bello il finale a sorpresa amarcord dei primi romanzi asimoviani del Ciclo dei RobotVoto 75 It has been several ears since I read Foundation though one thing that lingers in my mind about the first instalment of the series in the scope and ambition behind the work It is extraordinary and the brilliance continues hereFirstly though it is worth mentioning tha Split into two stories instead of many like the first book this *One Feels A Lot Streamlined *feels a lot streamlined the Foundation has met two of its greatest foes One of which was expected and one that wasn tThe path back to stable galactic civilization is a tortuous one The foundation always knew that it would one day have to face against the Empire and it did and that story was very interestingBut the Mule Well he s just fascinating And iconic And perhaps a bit overdone ever since then because let s face it we love mutants with mighty mental powers don t we Grasp the date 1951 This isn t a comic book either Yes sure there s the Lensman and others but what we ve got here is the grand social tide set against the powers of a single individual The very thing that Hari Seldon s math couldn t account for And now ashesWhat an awesome reversal One that s both chilling and affirming at the same time playing to our prejudices that we as individuals matter while also showing the grand destruction that comes with itI m revising the novel upwards It was great fun and still a part of the grand trilogy I don t know why I thought it was anything less than fantastic 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 brilliance of the ideasStill there are many plainly visible influences to be found and it s good enough that I definitely want to read of these books. Istória ciência revolucionària criada por Hari Seldon são postas em causa devido à aparição de um homem com poderes paranormais um mutante conhecido por Mula cuja verdadeira identidade apenas será desvendada nas últimas págin.
