Isaac Asimov æ 3 characters

Foundation review ✓ 3 FoundationBut soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords rising in the wake of the receding Empire Mankind's last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice submit to the barbarians and be overrun or fight them and be destroy From my first reading of this Foundation Trilogy when I was fourteen to my latest reading today I still put these in my top ten books of all time No uestionWhySo many reasons And even though the characters and the short story like presentation of the different times are uite fine and memorable it isn t these that I point toIt s the ideasIt s also how our history is writ large as SF It s the social exploration It s the re establishment of civilization one building block at a time It s the scary devolvement of all civilization too All dystopia and the glimmer of optimism It s a grand slide and a hard scrabble in a far future galactic civilization that might as well be us in a mirrorI ve since read Gibbon s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and I ve read about the ancient history of India s economic empire around 5 thousand years ago mainly accomplished peacefully and with great demand eventually leading to a grand civilizationBoth of these histories played a huge part in Asimov s imagining of his empire but it s mostly the Roman Empire s history that this book emulates from the ousting of its malcontents the fracturing of the provinces the devolvement of knowledge and learning into dogma and religious pomp Asimov curtails the worse parts of the Roman empire by having the Foundation eventually focus upon economics as a last ditch stopping point before outright violence overwhelms the rest of the galaxyIt s not a perfect solution but this is merely the first of three novels that absolutely need to be read together I m still absolutely amazed that history is retold so convincingly and grandly as an epic SF with such clear and sharp proseAsimov has always been known as a wonderful teacher Even his most entertaining and important works such as this always remain a testament to his own learning and his absolute insistence on making everything perfectly understood to his audience The novel is ambitious wide sweeping and terrifying It s honestly mind blowing taken together with the other two just how much information and development and implications are poured out onto

Foundation review ✓ 3 For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme Now it is dying But only Hari Seldon creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory can see into the future to a dark age of ignorance barbarism and warfare that will last thirty thousand This is the most ambitious thing I ve ever read The scope of this is just hugely imaginative The idea is to create the new and perfect galactic empire The old one is dying But new empires don t just pop up overnight it takes years for the right circumstances to arise it takes years for all the pieces to slot perfectly into place The brightest mind of the age has used his incredibly farfetched yet incredibly brilliant psychohistory to predict the exact date the empire will fall He has used this field of academia to predict the future and because of this he can alter events long after his death and guide his fledgling civilisation into powerThe old empire will crumble in exactly 300 years so he manipulates the ruling body to send him and his following to a remote planet that will eventually develop into something grand The settlers are all scientists and they re all set on one manipulated goal Harry Seldon controls the future from the grave he knew what would happen and he knew exactly when the people of the future should act He predicted that it would take 1000 years for the new empire to be born So he appears to them in real moments of crisis in pre recorded holograms to guide them in the right direction To succeed planning alone is insufficient One must improvise as well It s a remarkable book so broad and innovative I m shocked reading this today imagine what it would have bene like reading it in the 50s It clearly defines so much of the genre Star Wars and Star Trek clearly drew upon Asimov s foundation Would they have existed without it The parallels are here It s a visionary book though there are a few problems with it All the characters are scientists and politicians they are powerful and driven they are singular in their forceful purposes None of them really have the chance to develop That s not the purpose of this story The idea is to show the development of a nation of an empire across the centuries I found it hard to fully invest in it because of this The scenes that didn t have Harry Seldon in felt a little flat He was the glue that held it together the rest of the characters were forgettable Thus there is no action or real climax Structurally speaking this is essentially five short stories put together They re decades apart and so were the characters It shows the development of an empire but from a great deal of distance There was no real human element or emotions involved This work is practically a work of genius though it was impossible to fully care about the story because everything was objectified It was a major case of show rather than tell So I couldn t rate it five stars even if I was tempted to I m a realist I know he couldn t have told the story any other way but for me it lacked the human angle The fall of Empire gentlemen is a massive thing however and not easily fought It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy a receding initiative a freezing of caste a damming of curiosity a hundred other factors It has been going on as I have said for centuries and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop This was a great book though it lacked that vital element of storytelling It was very deceiving at the start too it was uite dry I almost gave up with it but I m glad I persisted I will be reading further into the series to see how things go but I will most likely only go so far as the original trilogyYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

review Foundation

Foundation review ✓ 3 Years To preserve knowledge and save mankind Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire both scientists and scholars and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a future generations He calls his sanctuary the 25 rounded up to 3 for the idea I postponed writing the review as I was hoping that something would click in my head and I would realize just how magnificent this novel is It did not happen unfortunately First of all I was made to believe that this is a SF book It isn t Not really It is of a socio political one It is not even a novel but a set of stories who present a series of political sociological psychological and religious ideas all based on the famous Psychohistory concept The ease with which a religion can be created and the power it can have over the masses scared me as it is so valid even today To use religion to control planets was a brilliant and scary idea and it felt the most interesting part of the book The premise of the Foundation is brilliant I admit However it would have been marvelous if the author have made me care about any of it The characters had no growth no real personality and the prose was so dry The book is mainly a series of dialogues between different people who scheme and try to outrun each other with their cunning and intelligence in order to gain power The fact that the whole thing takes place in space feels secondary to me Please do not throw virtual tomatoes at me for what I am about to say Here it goesI believe Asimov is not a very good writer It seems he can only write in dialogue and descriptive passage longer than a paragraph gives him the chills This is a pity as it adds up to the false idea some people have that SF is not literature I read enough of the genre to know that there are well written SF novels but I don t think this one or the Prelude is one of them If the novel is not very well written too sciency or too deep than it is fun right Well not really It has its moments but mostly it is filler filler and at the end we realize how smart the main guy of the story was A funny thing that I observed is that there are only male characters except for a single chapter about a bitchy sour wife who makes life miserable for one of the rulers of a planet I know I know it s the time the book was written I am not offended Still I could not observe a phrase that went something like this On the Foundation planet forgot its name there were X people together with their wives and children So wives are not people interesting idea I appreciate the idea of the series and it could have been a wonderful experience had it been written by someone else Like Ray Bradbury or Frank Herbert
