English Foundation and Empire Italiano Galactic Empire was collapsing Less fragmented than the previous one, the second novel of the Foundation series is divided only into two time bands, respectively 150 and 230 years after the birth of the Foundation With a new Seldon Crisis at hand, a formidable enemy, the Mule, equipped with almost supernatural powers, moves against the Foundation.I enjoyed the Isaac Asimov technique to divide the novel into different temporal phases to better describ English Foundation and Empire Italiano Galactic Empire was collapsing Less fragmented than the previous one,

of the Empire and the rise of the Foundation It s a suggestive experience of science fiction It really seems to read the Encyclopedia Galactica that several times appears in the pages of the Foundation series Exciting surprise ending, that remembers me the first Asimov novels of the Robot series.Vote 7,5 L Impero Galattico stava crollando Meno frammentario 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 quasi soprannaturali.Devo 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 Sembra davvero di scorrere quell Enciclopedia Galattica che pi volte ricorre nelle pagine della serie Molto bello il finale a sorpresa, amarcord dei primi romanzi asimoviani del Ciclo dei Robot.Voto 7,5 Less episodic than the first Foundation , which was a plus But it makes all theapparent 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 ridiculous and anti climactic deus ex machina, while Part II telegraphs its twist ending so far in advance that the last few chapters are simply redundant There s no arguing the brilliance of Asimov s ideas o Less episodic than the first Foundation , which was a plus But it makes all theapparent Asimov s complete inability to create memorable or sympathetic

its twist ending so far in advance that the last few chapters are simply redundant There s no arguing the brilliance of Asimov s ideas on science, politics, economics, war, etc all of which come into play in these stories But his writing itself borders on horrendous Dialogue is unrealistic and the lovers language in Part II was particularly stilted and corny, although this could have just been a product of being written in the 50s Transitions are nonexistent, making some of the scene jumps confusing at best A simple empty line would have helped a lot to show the change of scenery perhaps a problem only of the old edition that I read Last, the aforementioned characters are poorly developed It s one thing for Asimov to utilize his normal style of enigma suspense followed by solution resolution This style works well for short stories even if they get monotonous after a while But when stretched over 100 pages and combined with characters you don t care about, it makes for not muchthan a mildly challenging brain teaser interesting to be sure, but ultimately rather unfulfilling.All this would normally combine for two star status, but I grant it a third in deference to Asimov s genius and the sheer scope of the enterprise he created with this series He was clearly an idea man, worrying much less or not at all about the literary aspect of his works I can respect that, even if it doesn t make for a very satisfying novel.Cross posted at Not Bad Movie and Book Reviews blakerosser1 Isaac Asimov was 31 when he first published the SF classic Foundation in 1951 The next year

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 Seldon and psychohistory and to the beginning of Seldon s millennia plan, wasof a prequel to the larger scope andinteresting plot brought out in Foundation and Empire.The leaders of the Foundation operate under a foregone conclusion that their society will be a success, that theirs is a destiny proven with mathematical certainty by the great Seldon himself Periodically in the Foundation history, a simulacrum of Seldon will appear to explain away a crisis in his plan Up to the point of the story, Seldon had been prophetically correct in his predictions, reassuring his followers of the inevitability of his plan, and of Foundation.But there are shadows and penumbra of uncertainty and the apprehensions are proven true when great Seldon appears and starts talking about an alternate history, one that was not going on The Foundation was experiencing a crisis different than the one foretold by Seldon.The mule.Psychohistory deals with predicting statistical trends in human progress, a combined science of mathematics, sociology, psychology and cultural study that Seldon and his apostles have used Seldon s principles to exact a plan for cultural galactic evolution with exacting precision What Seldon cannot, could not, predict was the actions of an individual It is the unexpected ascendancy of a mutant with strange abilities that turns the Foundation plan into uncharted territory.Decades before Darth Vader and his Emperor, Asimov s The Mule describes a conquering villain with complexities and humanistic intricacies that would create an SF F template that would be mimicked by writers and speculative fiction writers for generations Over sixty years later and Asimov s character is still a study in deterministic power.One influence that jumped out to me was Trantor as a model for George Lucas Coruscant The center of galactic power is a planet city with a single purpose Asimov s impact on Herbert s Dune series is also suggested.A must read for SF fans
