Although small and seemingly helpless, the Foundation had managed to survive against the greed of its neighboring warlords. But could it stand against the mighty power of the Empire, who had created a mutant man with the strength of a dozen battlefleets…? (Goodreads)
My Rating: 5/5
Most of my rating for this books is for the last 5 chapters. The twist at the end had me scrambling through the pages to learn everything; to re-educate me on everything that I thought had happened.
I thought that the book was a little slow to begin with, but I appreciated how Asimov focused more on the characters. There is still very little characterisation as I only feel like I know them from a history book, but once I started to read the novel like a history book, I began to enjoy it more.
This series is fantastic – I’ll be burning through the last one of the original trilogy very soon!
