The Foundation Trilogy

Isaac Asimov

Book Overview: 

The Foundation Trilogy is an epic science fiction series written over a span of forty-four years by Isaac Asimov. It consists of seven volumes that are closely linked to each other, although they can be read separately. The premise of the series is that mathematician Hari Seldon spent his life developing a branch of mathematics known as psychohistory, a concept devised by Asimov and his editor John W. Campbell. Using the law of mass action, it can predict the future, but only on a large scale; it is error-prone for anything smaller than a planet or an empire. It works on the principle that the behavior of a mass of people is predictable if the quantity of this mass is very large (equal to the population of the galaxy).

Wow, WHAT AN END to the trilogy!! :)

After going through the 'pains' of the three books, because I am not used to reading Space Operas like this, the third book ended on an extremely satisfying note.

All the three books contained some dull sections for me, not to mention several times when I was comin

Foundation (1951): Gigantic brain-warping grand science-fiction, this is as big as it gets, so big it's difficult to fully comprehend. From the first page of Chapter 1, "The Psychohistorians", which begins with a quote from the "Encyclopedia Galactica", beginning in the 11,998th year of the Galactic

“Todos los sufrimientos de la humanidad pueden atribuirse al solo hecho de que ningún hombre en la historia de la Galaxia, hasta Hari Seldon, y muy pocos hombres después de él, pudieron entenderse mutuamente. Todos los seres humanos vivían tras un muro impenetrable de espesa niebla dentro del cual

An excellent trilogy, with a lot of surprising twist and turn. I swear the final twist took me so much by surprise, that I actually laughed out loud.

By Isaac Asimov

INTRODUCTION:

In my life, there have been three science fiction books/series that will always hold special shelf space in my heart’s library. The first, and the subject of this review, is The Foundation Trilogy by I

When Isaac Asimov learned that the World Science Fiction Convention would be giving a special Hugo Award in 1966 for "Best All Time Series," he believed that the category had been created specifically to honor J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Indeed, for a modern reader, it's surprising t

Qué barbaridad. Sin duda el mejor libro que he leído este año de largo. Epicidad, intriga, emoción, giros de guión super inteligentes y brillantísimos, una gran cantidad de personajes que son brutalísimos, como por ejemplo El mulo, que se ha convertido en uno de mis villanos top de todos los tiempos

Les presento la mejor novela que he leído hasta ahora, una trilogía, en concreto, con la que se inicia el Universo Asimov, una colección de 16 libros de ciencia ficción que desde luego forman parte de los clásicos de la literatura Universal.
Un estilo narrativo excelente, tramas originales e intelige

Volver a leer la trilogía de la Fundación 15 años después y esta vez del tirón (un tirón que me ha llevado 6 meses), me ha permitido entender mejor la idea general que planteó Asimov.
Ahora tengo más experiencia como lector y he visto alguno de los fallos en los que cae (la trilogía entera es un inf
