[Isaac Asimov] Read online Foundation epub

Free download Foundation

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 Honestly I don t get why this bookseries is so popular There are some interesting elements to it for instance the use of religion as a tool of mass control and the implicit resultant argument that religion is no than a fraud the opiate of the people after all but the book gave me little to enjoy or dig into The forces of the novel are broad historical dealing with masses of people this means that there is little to no room for individual characters here and little to be done by the few characters who do appear One leader says in fact in response to a crisis the threat of warfare and annihilation I m going to do nothing One hundred percent of nothing and that is the secret of this crisis 191 This is a recurring theme Plus there are no female characters to speak of One man s wife makes a brief and apparently unnecessary appearance for a page long chapter but that s it All else is done by and to menThere are a couple of minor things I do like about the book One is Salvor Hardin s statement that violence is the last refuge of the incompetent which I like for its endorsement of nonviolent alternatives Another is the characters habit of saying Space or Galaxy instead of God when they exclaim or curse

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 I read this again after about a thirty year hiatus I remember as a high schooler liking it and I read and liked some of the seuels but not entirely getting the full ideas presented After some time to grow up and mature I think I can appreciate Asimov s vision better than before Maybe it was the lack of much action that hindered my enjoyment as a teenager but as an adult I really liked the concepts approached and the ideas put forth Great science fiction and very influential on the works that came later This is a MUST read for SF fans
