あらすじ・解説

Isaac Asimov's Foundation novels are one of the great masterworks of science fiction. As unsurpassed blend of nonstop action, daring ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of men and women dedicated to preserving humanity's light in a galaxy plunged into a nightmare of ignorance and violence thirty thousand years long.

After years of struggle, the Foundation lies in ruins, destroyed by the mutant mind power of the Mule. But it is rumored that there is a Second Foundation hidden somewhere at the end of the Galaxy, established to preserve the knowledge of mankind through the long centuries of barbarism. The Mule failed to find it the first timebut now he is certain he knows where it lies.

The fate of the Foundation rests on young Arcadia Darell, only 14 years old and burdened with a terrible secret. As its scientists gird for a final showdown with the Mule, the survivors of the First Foundation begin their desperate search. They too want the Second Foundation destroyed, before it destroys them.

Superb conclusion to trilogy

For me this trilogy peaked in the middle with 'Foundation and Empire', but this book is still great and well worth listening to if you have listened/read the others. The conclusion of this original Foundation trilogy is satisfactory, although it is clear that the story can continue and does in the form of the Extended Foundation series which are unfortunately not available on Audible and which do not seem to have been produced by Random House.

Excellently narrated by Scott Brick.

Classic Asimov

Very entertaining book. I didn't feel it was at the level of the other two in the trilogy, but makes for a nice conclusion. Also: although it's not possible to use today's expectations for decades old books, I'd note that the dialog of female roles is disappointing, and the voice of Scott Brick doesn't quite help (though he reads exactly at I'd expect from the writing). The story is all in all satisfying, and offers a couple of nice twists. Necessary if you like Asimov

Brilliant trilogy

I read this trilogy by Asimov as a teenager and 40 years on it is still one of my favourites.

Great book. Very good reader.

Fantastic series. I initially thought that most of the ideas would be outdated by now, but I was wrong. The story is kept on such a high level that it becomes timeless. Dealing with ideals, intrigue and also showing the mindset of its time. I was positively surprised to see a strong female character in one of the chapters (again considering time period when the books where written).

A solid conclusion to the trilogy

This book brings the events and questions from the second book together in a neat ending, whilst still leaving the options open for the universe to be explored in other works (which they are).

Brick brings continuity to those exploring the entire trilogy on audio book and his performance is excellent as always. His pacing and tone makes the book easy to listen to and there is enough diversity in his voicing to understand where the conversation has shifted between characters and narrative.

A recommended listen and a solid close to the trilogy.

Another great sci fi classic,

it's a classic Asimov tale, if you're hoping it will be as good as the first and second foundation books you are in luck

Scott Brick is an excellent reader particularly suited to the grandiose style of Asimov's. His delivery is varied and interesting.

Loved it.

By the time you have travelled this far through the Foundation you have to see it through to Stars End. Great story, beautifully read and no production editing problems.

Brilliant book! Worth a listen. A classic.

Isaac Asimov makes scifi brilliant to listen to. Scott Brick has a good performance but he battles to distinguish between speakers.

There is a singular error at the end

There is a singular error at the end where Scott Brick says "Trantor" instead of "Terminus"

Fantastic. A fitting end to the series.

Have loved every moment of the Foundation Trilogy and found this book to be a fitting end to the series. All the intricacy, intelligence, foresight, and fantastically written characters which you've come to expect from Asimov. You will absolutely not be disappointed by this.

A must read trilogy.

The Foundation books are a towering master work of Sci Fi from a master of the genre. You owe it to yourself to read them. Very enjoyable and very clever.

Mesmerising

I can safely say as I listened to this audio book that there was not a moment that I was lost to another world within my imagination. Scott Brick did a wonderful performance on the recording. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys an ageless story, ahead of its time.
