    When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Richard Ames is thrown headfirst into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history.

    I tried to like this book, I really did. I have heard so many good things about the book, but I just couldn't get past the narration. I hate to reference Futurama in a serious review, but Tom Weiner sounds like Captain Zapp Brannigan. It was amusing for the first couple of minutes, but it wore thin. He drags out the last word in every sentence and raises his pitch like he's asking a question. It works ok for dialogue, but not for narration. He also pauses at odd times making it sound like he’s reading the book for the first time. I don’t know if that’s why I found the jokes to be grating on my nerves; maybe I just don’t care for Heinlein's style. I’ll try reading one of his books and see if I like it. I won’t be buying any more books narrated by Tom Weiner.I tried to like this book, I really did. I have heard so many good things about the book, but I just couldn't get past the narration.

    At last, the costly and bitter war between the two Foundations had come to an end. Now the two exiled citizens of the Foundation - a renegade Councilman and the doddering historian - set out in search of the mythical planet Earth. Meanwhile, someone - or something - outside of both Foundations seems to be orchestrating events to suit its own ominous purpose.
