Grazie alla sua opera, può essere di diritto annoverato tra i primi e più diretti ispiratori di Hari Seldon, il padre fondatore della psicostoria, la scienza del comportamento umano ridotto ad equazioni matematiche" ENCICLOPEDIA GALATTICASecondo prequel al ciclo delle fondazioni vero e proprio, il romanzo si svolge su Trantor a partire da 8 anni dopo il primo prequel Preludio alla Fondazione.

Eventually, he secludes Wanda and the others to establish the Second Foundation in secret, which later turns out to be at the same Imperial Library of Trantor. I will hang on to these books in my library for a while, and then perhaps one day I will trade them in or pass them on to the next people who are interested in this slice of sci-fi history.

El argumento está bien planteado y sobre él se desenvuelven de manera ordenada y clara los problemas y su eventual resolución. Really disappointed with this, wanted to add a hardback version to my collection, but this turned out to be a paper back and in not very good condition either.Forward the Foundation continues the chronicles of the life of Hari Seldon, first begun in Prelude to Foundation. Está dividida en capítulos largos, con saltos temporales, que van contando la vida de Hari Seldon, su familia y sus colaboradores. Once again prominent and interesting female characters are evident as are some minor looks at class-divide, democracy and anti-science. Occorre però fare una precisazione: il mio giudizio è assolutamente non obiettivo, essendo un amante dello spionaggio fantascientifico di Asimov e della sua affascinante teoria della colonizzazione spaziale.

Forward the Foundation is pretty great for fans of this classic sci-fi series, it fills out details of things mentioned in the original Foundation Trilogy. En esta ocasión los acontecimientos suceden durante 50 años de la vida de Seldon, desde que descubre la psicohistoria hasta que muere. It is written in a format similar to that of the original book, Foundation, composed of chapters with long intervals in between, although Forward takes place within only one lifetime. With outside interference seemingly subdued, Hari Seldon and his allies settle down into working on psycho-history; this is the story of he next four decades of Skelton's life as they strive to complete their work as the Galactic Empire starts to wane and some parties blame Hari and co, as they seek to blame the messenger.I think that anyone new to the Foundation books would be better off reading the trilogy first simply because they are just more fun and exciting. But rumors persist that the Second Foundation is not destroyed after all and that its still-defiant survivors are preparing their revenge. The original trilogy, from the 50s, is comprised of three rather short novels, very tightly written and often quite thrilling. These books are by no means perfect and suffer from bland prose, often poor characterization and sexism but as a whole, this series is some of the best sci fi that anyone can read.

Even if the stories themselves fall short of this standard time after time, the occasional glimpses of Asimov's Universe make it worth the read, regardless. La importancia de la familia, la partida de los seres queridos, el hacer algo que nos apasione en la ínfima cantidad de tiempo que pasamos por este barrio, la hermosa y única relación que se da entre abuelos y nietos, y por supuesto, el envejecer y sus consecuencias. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Fans might question the need for what amounts to a second prequel to the Foundation trilogy, but Asimov supplies more than enough by way of the unexpected to both maintain the reader's interest and remain relevant to the larger overall story arc. Overall, the Foundation series is obviously a classic science fiction series, and I won’t argue otherwise. Asimov’s intentness upon Seldon’s discomfort around his age jumps out immediately and feels so uncomfortable to me, a 31-year-old reader. If, however, you are a fan of science fiction but not particularly interested in its older, sexist iterations like this series, then give this a miss. He didn't need to do that -- even if he wasn't going to be progressive enough to acknowledge his critics and change those references, he could've easily just stayed neutral on the subject -- so to purposely put them in is a legitimate "fuck you" from Asimov at the end of his life to the people who eventually became the "woke crowd," and who would eat him alive if he happened to be alive and in his nineties and still trying to publish now, like poor old creepy Woody Allen.

Zapleti su manje vise ocekivani ali na jako zanimljiv nacin vodi ka uspostavljanju Zaduzbine i onome sta nas ocekuje u centralnoj Asimovljevoj trilogiji.

Forward the Foundation is good old fashioned Sci-Fi and well worth the read, especially in the context of the Foundation Trilogy.
