    For 12,000 years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last 30,000 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 fututre generations.

    overall this book was really thought out very deeply, but it was very tough to follow all the lines of political jargon and gross assumptions made it truly a chore to read this book I hate to think this about a book wrote by the great Isaac Asimov but I really wish there was at least some action in this it's entirely a book of political bullshit

    I'm revisiting this review a day later.

    in the very first paragraph of Levitation Wakes by James S A Corey there is more action and interesting writing than this entire book. that is all.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    Story

    my main problem with this book begins with the logic used. I imagine to 1970s mind that produce this novel, The logic webs used make perfect sense but in today's mind they seem flawed. the way in which they deal with moties when they are in the system don't make much sense and likely the entire book would precipitate differently because of those differences. besides that point the book leaves a lot of questions unanswered and a lot of loose ends, which I hate. Also the narrator seemed hurried and has an unusual diction that makes it hard to follow.

    When Dan McCarthy stumbles upon a folder containing evidence of the conspiracy to end all conspiracies - a top-level alien cover-up - he leaks the files without a second thought. The incredible truth revealed by Dan's leak immediately captures the public's imagination, but Dan's relentless commitment to exposing the cover-up and forcing disclosure quickly earns him some enemies in high places.

    I'm thirty chapters in and I still hope it gets better. This whole book is about some kid navigating the intricacies and political ridiculousness of maintaining a face via PR and press releases. it's not about a kid finding evidence of an alien government cover-up.
