Reader Review: Anyone who has enjoyed the two previous "Foundation" novels will want to read this one. Is Foundation threatened by the always elusive Second Foundation, or is Second Foundation merely an imaginary entity? If it exists, what and where is it? We explore this largely through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. While I enjoyed the novel, it did not grip me quite as much as its predecessors - probably partly because Asimov keeps reverting to the same conundrum.
Isaac Asimov's Foundation novels are one of the great masterworks of science fiction. As unsurpassed blend of nonstop action, daring ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of men and women dedicated to preserving humanity's light in a galaxy plunged into a nightmare of ignorance and violence thirty thousand years long.
After years of struggle, the Foundation lies in ruins—destroyed by the mutant mind power of the Mule. But it is rumored that there is a Second Foundation hidden somewhere at the end of the Galaxy, established to preserve the knowledge of mankind through the long centuries of barbarism. The Mule failed to find it the first time—but now he is certain he knows where it lies.
The fate of the Foundation rests on young Arcadia Darell, only fourteen years old and burdened with a terrible secret. As its scientists gird for a final showdown with the Mule, the survivors of the First Foundation begin their desperate search. They too want the Second Foundation destroyed…before it destroys them.
From the Paperback edition.
