1st of the extended Foundation series, set on the period of Harry Sheldon‘s early years, a must read one for those who try to understand the Foundation Universe...

I took a loooooong bike ride through an area full of Little Free Libraries, one of which coughed up this beautiful copy of the Foundation Trilogy! I haven‘t decided if I‘ll keep it or give it to my dad, who loved these books way back in the day.

Yay, finished another great book by Isaac Asimov, my September #BookSpin also gives me #BookSpinBingo for this month. Still not helping me progress in the Prompt Maze Q3 because it was first published in 1955 but helps me with Prompt Maze Q4 so not all is lost 😃

I can now finally get done my list for November, @TheAromaOfBooks

Woot and that's my #doublespin done! This is one of Asimov's better collections in my opinion. As ever he's a little heave on hard scifi for me, but his stories are still so very good.

Maybe I would've liked this trilogy more if I had read it in the correct order. But even then one just feels that it's one of the earlier works by Asimov. The ideas behind the story aren't bad, but the whole plot lacks depth and all the meaning we find in his later books.

But I'm happy to still have finished the series and now can move on to Asimovs other works.

111/150 Its been several years since I read the original Foundation trilogy, but I remember enjoying it. I didn't enjoy this as much, but it's still a pick, although a low one. This prequel has Hari Seldon at the start of his fame, when psychohistory was just a theory presented in an academic paper. I might have enjoyed this more if Seldon wasn't such a naive person, all his misadventures coming from his seeming inability ⬇️⬇️⬇️

RamsFan1963 to recognize deceit and was continuous amazed when he was betrayed by others trying to use him. It got tiring, his befuddled scholar stumbling from one mishap and misadventure to another. 3 ⭐⭐⭐ 1/2 1st book finished for #20in4 @Andrew65 3mo
Andrew65 This is one I want to read having re-read the original series over the past few years. 3mo

Baley is invited to Aurora to solve the mystery of who killed Jasper, a humanoid robot, in theory his creator Dr Fastolfe is the only one capable of doing it, but he swears his innocence. Due to political ramifications the investigation can affect if Earth is allowed to colonize other planets.
Still enjoying the series although I could do without the boobs comments that are thrown from time to time.

This one is made up of short stories featuring the same characters over a period of time, each story introduces a theme and explores it.

The stories are thought-provoking and interesting but they're also quite repetitive.

Having said that I still liked this book, it's very engaging and humorous at times.

I recommended, if you like Sci-Fi, this is essential reading! 🤖
