Publisher's Summary

At last, the costly and bitter war between the two Foundations had come to an end. The scientists of the First Foundation had proved victorious; and now they return to Hari Seldon's long-established plan to build a new Empire that the Second Foundation is not destroyed after all - and that its still-defiant survivors are preparing their revenge.

Now the two exiled citizens of the Foundation - a renegade Councilman and the doddering historian-set out in search of the mythical planet Earth.... and proof that the Second Foundation still exists.

Meanwhile, someone - or something - outside of both Foundations seems to be orchestrating events to suit its own ominous purpose. Soon representatives of both the First and Second Foundations will find themselves racing toward a mysterious world called Gaia and a final shocking destiny at the very end of the universe!

    "Best of the series so far"

    Having already listened to the original trilogy, I can appreciate why the series is so popular and the works overall heralded for their greatness and impact on science fiction and society.

    I feel that this book exceeds the original trilogy, and hits even closer to modern times with its themes and plot points. The fundamental decision at the end of the novel is one that reaches far beyond the pages of the book, and touches on the meaning of our existence itself.

    I can't wait to continue the story! It is a shame it ends after the next book, before reaching the allotted 1,000 years of the Seldon Plan

    "The reader is unimaginably awful."

    The narrator could have profitably been replaced by a computer generated voice. The delivery was flat, emotionless and had a cadence that disrupted the dialog.

    "My first read of this classic. "

    Timeless. Dated in some ways but still timeless in its themes. many science fiction books after this series can in some way claim this as an ancestor.

    "Really fascinating story!"

    If Asimov wasn't so great a writer, he might have made a good philosopher, psychologist, or sociologist. He delves into some very deep issues concerning free will, dependency, individuality, consciousness, and others. Unfortunately, he leaves out the possibility of the existence of God. Still, his books are among my favorites, and this one is well narrated. After this one, be sure to get Foundation and Earth!

    "highly recommend"

    Another awesome addition to the Foundation series. Scott Brick is an incredible narrator, better than any I've ever heard. It's now hard to listen to audiobooks narrated by anybody but Brick. He really fills the text with emotion and embodies each character in their own unique ways.

    "Superb"

    Far better than the original trilogy. Science fiction at its best. Asimov weaves an exciting intellectual complicated and satisfying story.
