Unless you re just a die hard Foundation fan and have to read them all Prelude to Foundation can safely be skipped In particular I m not sure that I would recommend reading it prior to the other Foundation novels despite the fact that it s a preuelIt s not spoiling anything to briefly explain why this is In Foundation which is really a shorts collection than a novel despite the fact that the stories do flow very well together Hari Seldon is already an old man The whole premise is based upon his having mathematically predicted the future using a techniue of his own devising called psychohistory He is from page one a legendPrelude to Foundation attempts to chronicle Hari s invention of psychohistory as a young man The story flows much like the plot of a B action movie right down to Hari having some small martial arts skills The young hasty Hari is a far less compelling hero than the iconic genius who has mathematically determined how to shorten ten thousand years of barbarism to just one thousandOf course Asimov is a good enough storyteller that it all hangs together decently But there s a lot of books out there to be had and plenty of other choices even just in the Asimov shelf that are better

Read Prelude to Foundation Prelude to Foundation Free read Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Isaac Asimov O a Seldon non rimane che iniziare una lunga e avventurosa fuga tra le cupole di Trantor alla ricerca dell'unica chiave che gli consentirà di capire l'intero passato del genere umano e di aprirgli le porte del futuroCopertina di Vicente Segrelle. I enjoyed this book than I probably should haveAs the name suggest it is the preuel to the Foundation series which is considered one of the best SF series ever What I liked about this book is the idea of the psycho history and also how the author imagined some of the worlds from Trantor Also the action was gripping if reading until 200am is a sign of that I have to admit however that the book is not a work of art The prose is uite simplistic and it is full of dialog OMGtoo much dialog The last book I read with so much dialog was the Cosmetic of the Enemy by Amelie Nothomb 10 years ago but there the subject was an interview and the dialog was brilliant In the Prelude to Foundation the dialog is uite mundane and not very intelligent which is should have been taking in consideration that the main characters are two university professors one of who will develop one of the most important scientific concepts in the intergalactic world which will save the Empire from destruction or so I heardAnyways it did not matter that it wasn t a literary masterpiece I enjoyed it a lot and I can t wait to read the Foundation which is actually the first book in the series by the publication date

Read Prelude to Foundation Prelude to Foundation Free read Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Isaac Asimov Nario di Heldon si chiama Hari Seldon ed è destinato a diventare il padre della Fondazione e la sua ipotesi di poter prevedere il futuro in modo scientifico accende gli appetiti di Cleon I Ma l'interesse dell'Imperatore è un'arma a doppio tagli. This really wasn t that bad in fact I enjoyed it uite a lot but it was very disappointing It is an entirely different kind of book to Foundation which was about concepts Not amazingly written certainly but neither was this and without the great concepts there s not a huge amount leftI think it would be a bit harsh to say that this book was written to cash in on the phenomenon that was Foundation though I suspect that is part of it What probably happened is that Asimov realised that he could link up all the books he d previously written for the Foundation series and for his robot stuff into one big series spanning thousands of years and the entire galaxy but still essentially linked Which means he had to write a few books to go in between the early robot stories and the later Foundation series Preuals to the latter or seuels to the former It doesn t really matter because all this book is and I expect the other preualseuel too is a gap fillerSo this book draws out connections and follows its plot in an entirely arbitrary yet painfully predictable way Unlike Foundation which was delightful because it hardly paused for a second on any particular group of characters instead focusing on broad sweeping principles of politics and economics Prelude to Foundation follws tortuously the path of Hari Seldon in his uest to develop the science of psychohistory This involves close character study something which Asimov is very bad at Also while he s pretty good at the politicaleconomic stuff he s appallingly bad at the anthropological side of things The definite low point of the book was the sojourn in the Mycogen sector of Trantor during which I spent most of the time feeling both appalled and insultedThe real thing that made Foundation great was that it left so much unsaid it treated the reader intelligently allowing them to make their own connections instead of explaining every minute detail of a plot development whose existence any observant person would have guessed fifty or so pages earlier
