Wow. ( )

More of the sexism that I saw in Foundation's Edge but a better overall read even though the conclusion came about rather abruptly and wrapped things up very neatly. Having said that, I did feel compelled to finish this story and felt a resurgence of the love I had for science fiction novels when I was younger. I still like the original trilogy the best but now I will turn my attention to the two prequels. Fingers crossed for two good reads! ( )

1953 Second Foundation
1981 Foundation's Edge
1986 Foundation and Earth ( )

The hunt is on for planet Earth. Former Councilman of the First Foundation Golan Revize sets out with historian Janov Pelorate and a woman named Bliss. It is centuries after the fall of the First Galactic Empire and the future of humankind lies in the ability to form a new empire. But where? Golan is convinced neither the First Foundation nor the Second are stable enough for success. Instead, he hangs his hope on using Gaia. Before that can happen he must find Earth, the planet that has been lost for thousands of years. It is not going to be easy. In some cultures of the galaxy, it is a superstition to utter the word, 'Earth." One must say 'the Oldest' instead.
Interestingly enough, even though Bliss is a friend and a helper, she is without paperwork, and she is not part of the travel log. As a result, problems regarding immigration arise. She is seen as "entertainment" for the two men who are the only ones accounted for on the spaceship.
Foundation and Earth is heavy with philosophical questions like, is a toe tapping in time to music part of the action, acting as an in-time accompanying drum beat or a response to the action of music being played? ( )

Poussé par les circonstances à choisir l'avenir de l'humanité, Golan Trevise est persuadé que les réponses à ses questions se trouvent sur la planète des origines : la Terre. Accompagné du mythologue Janov Pelorat et de la douce Gaïenne Joie, le voilà parti en mission à travers toute la galaxie. Leur voyage les mènera aux confins de l'humanité, à la rencontre de mutants et de robots par toujours accueillants. Une véritable odyssée à l'échelle de la galaxie.
Plus captivant encore que le précédent, ce tome final se veut aussi le plus abouti et sur tous les points. Développés et réalistes, les personnages entretiennent aussi des relations complexes. Enfin, Asimov exploite les possibilités infinies du voyage interplanétaire, les héros étant confrontés à d'inquiétantes altérités.
Terre et Fondation constitue ainsi un véritable volume de clôture avec son lot de satisfaction : les inimitiés prennent fin, tous les mystères sont résolus, et les incohérences justifiées. Une bible de la science-fiction. ( )

Mr. Asimov has failed to integrate the necessary background into the current action in a way that can make sense to a new reader (as he did so deftly in ''Foundation's Edge'' and ''Robots and Empire''). Worse, he is too busy referring the reader to positions staked out in the earlier books to create fresh sources of dramatic tension. In his younger days, when he chronicled the decline and fall of the Galactic Empire through plots borrowed from Roman history, he tagged his narratives with playful quotations from the ''Encyclopedia Galactica.'' Now he seems to be treating his own corpus of work as the stuff of history. His characters are so conscious of their awesome responsibilities that they lack spontaneity. As eager as I am to know what Mr. Asimov has in store for the galaxy, I hope that he continues this project out of real conviction and not merely from habit or a sense of obligation. I would prefer a few loose ends to a series of backward-looking sequels.

Does the Foundation series really end here? Near the end of the novel, we are given a clue to what may be yet to come. An idiosyncrasy of Asimov's Foundation/Robot universe has always been that mankind has expanded into an empty and almost lifeless galaxy with no intelligent aliens, a galaxy where men and the robots are the only intelligent life forms. Now we receive a hint that there may be intelligent alien life in other galaxies and that mankind and these aliens may be destined to meet. Isaac Asimov is an amazingly prolific writer, and he has been well rewarded for his recent efforts. I would not want to bet that "Foundation and Earth" is really the conclusion of the Foundation series.
