Terzo perchè lo stile di Asimov è ineguagliabile, ha una scrittura talmente delicata, accogliente e poetica che non si può non essere colpiti.

El hecho de que Hacia la Fundación se inserte de manera tan natural dentro de la saga de Fundación, hace que no sea un libro que recomiende a quienes no están familiarizados con la obra de Asimov: pertenece a un contexto muy particular y, hay que reconocerlo, no es la mejor de sus novelas. How ironic, when reading Asimov's works, to realize that he did not live long enough to see the rise of the Internet or the construction of the International Space Station. In fact, Asimov expressly used these last novels of his career to defiantly still engage in the exact behavior that his increasingly younger critics excoriated in his books, such as the subsumed racism of '50s-style "PG-rated" slurs like "boy," and the out-and-out sexism and sexual objectifiction of every female character.Agis becomes a friend to Seldon during the years of his reign, until he mysteriously "disappears" at the hand of the Commission of Public Safety, which replaces Agis with a puppet Emperor while they become the true power behind the throne. The main character is once again Hari Seldon, committed to the development and practical application of Psychohistory. Questo libro racconta la vita di Hari Seldon e del suo progetto di salvare la caduta dell'Impero con la Psicostoria, ed è davvero bello. Ma andate a leggervi "Abissi d'acciaio" e il ciclo dei Robot, e capirete perché persino lui è una figura commovente, nel suo sopravvivere (inesorabilmente e da solo) all'umanità.

But that takes bending some roads in really curvy ways to get all the details to line up, including the fact that the "Empire" trilogy envisions an expanded humanity where not a robot is in sight, while the "Robot" trilogy (taking place thousands of years previously, in a day-after-tomorrow Earth) features tens of thousands of robots everywhere; and that in the "Empire" books, Earth is now supposed to be a radioactive wasteland, while no such indication is given in the "Robot" books.Like the first Foundation prequel, Prelude to Foundation, I found this a bit of a bloated snoozefest and admit to liberal skimming and skipping.

For it is only now that I am able to give my readers Hari Seldon during the most crucial, creative years of his life. Meaning that there is a coup which ends in the Emperor's death and a decade of what can only be described as disaster. Raych offers to infiltrate the conspiracy, but its leader, Namarti (who was an associate of Joranum) easily recognizes Raych and has him drugged and brainwashed to use him as a weapon. 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. Anche se è passato tanto tempo, questa rilettura mi sta davvero coinvolgendo, continua ad affascinarmi, a farmi ridere e piangere.The original trilogy, from the 50s, is comprised of three rather short novels, very tightly written and often quite thrilling. That said it is probably the weakest of them all, and if I could only give it 4 1/2 stars I would, as I can't it has to be 5. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series. Of course we know that Asimov was not doing well when he wrote this and it was published posthumously.

I’ll give Asimov credit for largely avoiding too much retconning or other such changes that could undermine what he accomplished with his earlier works. When a rebellion against the Empire breaks out, Raych sends his wife and younger daughter away on a starship, but he remains behind to defend his university and is killed, and the starship is never seen again.It seemed bloated at times, as Asimov tried to capture his own feelings of aging, tried to incorporate most all of his other works into a unified tapestry, as well as develop more depth among a more diverse cast of characters. This one isn't as good as the first prequel, which itself had some of the same problems I found here. Está dividida en capítulos largos, con saltos temporales, que van contando la vida de Hari Seldon, su familia y sus colaboradores.
