The Foundation series is my all time favourite science fiction series. This was Asimov's return to the series after a gap of several decades and the difference in style of a novel written in the 1980s to the original stories in the 1940s and 50s is stark. This one is even more than its predecessors a novel of ideas and concepts, not of action. Nevertheless there are slightly more rounded characters than in those earlier novels. I think this lacks slightly the impact of those books, but builds on their sweeping future history and is still an excellent novel of ideas. ( )

While this series still shows its age (especially this one, I think simply due to all the explanations of how computers work, etc.), I have to say I enjoyed this one a bit more.

While still displaying all the hallmarks of a typical Asimov Foundation>/i> novel, which is to say, at least three people engaged in at least one discussion of "Haha! I've outsmarted you!" "Haha! You only believe you have! But had you considered X, you would see that it is I that has outsmarted you!" "Bwha-haha! You are both fools! I have outsmarted both of you!", this one seemed to open up an already large, yet strangely claustrophobic universe through the additions of both Asimov's Robots and his Eternals.

Yes, the robots, if you read the books in series order, were added in one of the prequel books, but this gives them a place in the proceedings. A seat at the table, as it were.

Overall, I've accepted the fact that Asimov will never be a great writer, yet, this book, written three decades after the first trilogy, is much better written (even if latter books became dreadful to read). Now that I'm well into the back half of the series, this one gives me a bit of hope that the next four books won't be quite as painful as the first ones were.

Now, 33 years later, Mr. Asimov has written a new Foundation book. And I am relieved to report that it is a worthy sequel in every way. As before, the First Foundation wields the power of the physical sciences and technology, and the Second Foundation has the power to cloud men's minds and predict mass behavior through the statistical insights of psychohistory. Also as before, the fate of all humanity is at stake as these mighty adversaries clash - and the focus is on the actions of a handful of people who are earnest and articulate and likable even when they do bad things (for what seem to them good reasons). Mr. Asimov gives us adversaries but no villains; this is future history portrayed as a great game. The danger of such a concept is that the reader will cease to care who wins or loses. Mr. Asimov sustains interest by keeping us guessing just which side each player represents. He writes much better than he did 33 years ago - yet he has lost none of the verve that he brought to this series when he and the galaxy were much younger. What more could one ask?

Rare is the author who can resume a story after a pause of three decades, but Asimov has never been predictable in anything but fecundity. This is his 260th book and one of his best. Given the master's past history, it may be a prelude to a pentalogy.

After a slowish start, then, the rather talky narrative here develops into grippingly effective drama - with oodles of twisty-turny plot, an engaging cast, and some enjoyably mellow humor (Asimov whimsically manages to work in references to all his previous novels). A grandmasterly performance.
