    One thought on “No Limiar da Fundação”

    1. First published in 1982 almost 30 years after the last volume of the iconic original Foundation Trilogy, namely Second Foundation, I was skeptical that Asimov would be able to maintain his mojo post the Golden Age of Science Fiction when he was publishing his most iconic sci-fi stories and novels. Of his 80s books I only read The Robots of Dawn which I thought was quite good but not in the same league as his 50s robot novels The Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. Still, I liked it enough to rekin [...]

    2. Christmas 2010: I realised that I had got stuck in a rut. I was re-reading old favourites again and again, waiting for a few trusted authors to release new works. Something had to be done.On the spur of the moment I set myself a challenge, to read every book to have won the Locus Sci-Fi award. That’s 35 books, 6 of which I’d previously read, leaving 29 titles by 14 authors who were new to me.While working through this reading list I got married, went on my honeymoon, switched career and beca [...]

    3. مجموعهٔ بنیاد نام مجموعه‌ای ۷ جلدی از آیزاک آسیموف است که مشهورترین مجموعهٔ علمی-تخیلی خوانده شده‌است. داستان این مجموعه به ترتیب زمان انتشار پیش نمی‌رود، بلکه آسیموف ابتدا جلدهای سوم (بنیاد)، چهارم(بنیاد و امپراطوری) و پنجم (بنیاد دوم) را نوشت و سپس با وقفه‌ای طولانی مدت و [...]

    4. This was, like its predecessors, an enjoyable story. I enjoyed the premise for it, the pacing, and even the characterization is very much improved over the earlier Foundation novels (however little that may be saying).But I cannot review this book without spoiling it. So read no further if that bothers you.The real shortcoming is that Asimov abandons (at the very end) the first two foundations to have yet a third organization secretly pull strings from behind a curtain. I get that they're benevo [...]

    5. 4.0 to 4.5 stars. Excellent book, but not as good as the original trilogy. Winner: Hugo Award for Best Science Fiction Novel (1983)Winner: Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel (1983)Nominee: Nebula Award for Best Science Fiction Novel (1983)

    6. Asimov surrounds me everytime I read his books. This time he worked more on the characters and their interactions, which made the book even more fluent to enjoy. The writing style is still very simple, so even when the plot gets dense it doesn't bother and everything Asimov has to say about the Universe, the human race, our minds as a group or a single person is so fascinated to me. A very special book about balance, our decisions and how important they are. Second favorite behind Foundation. I [...]

    7. Although written much later than the original Foundation trilogy, this book in my opinion is on a par with them. Not only is it a great story, well written as ever by Asimov, but after having read the Foundation novels, the Robot novels and the Empire novels (some many times), you realise how cleverly this book starts to bring everything together the way Asimov intended.

    8. 4.5 StarsDefinitely a better read than the The Foundation Trilogy, as some friends had suggested. :)Having written this much later in life (early 1980s, 32 years after the publication of the previous Foundation book Second Foundation), Asimov's writing style seems to have had improved than from the 1950s. The book won the Hugo Award for best novel and the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel in 1983. Although the book is self-contained, the story in this book is a continuation to the origi [...]

    9. I didn't plan to read the "later" Foundation books because most attempts to reinvigorate an early, highly successful series (and except for "Lord of the Rings," no original series of the '50s and '60s was as successful as the Foundation trilogy) usually leave you somewhat embarrassed for the author.Not here. Rather than trying to reanimate the sword-and-hoopla of much of 1950s SF, Asimov writes us a 450-page logical argument. You might think that would be enough to give Socrates a headache, but, [...]

    10. Sort of brick-like sequel to the earlier Foundation books.One can read and enjoy this book and the one that comes after it and as a pair they serve to tie the Foundation series back to the Bailey/robot books. They take the Foundation idea in a slightly different direction by introducing a factor and the possibility of a factor outside of the original psychohistorical calculations made by Seldon. Which rather renders the original stories superfluous. The drive of late Azimov to completeness and n [...]

    11. In his fourth installment in the Foundation Series Asimov blunders and completely drops the ball. While the first three novels did a marvelous job of telling the story of The Seldon Plan (The True Main Character of the Foundation Series), Asimov decides to toss what was a very good plot aside in favor of connecting the Foundation Series to the Empire and Robot series. I was flabbergasted as a dues ex machine arrives to serve only one purpose (make everything fit together). Not only was the sudde [...]

    12. Expectations are funny things you know. Working in a secondhand bookshop I see so many copies of this title on my heavily discounted shelves all the time, nobody buying it even at $2; I was under the impression that it must've been a very poor addition to the series because every other Asimov gts bought instantly. How wrong I was.This is quite possibly my favourite of the Foundation novels so far, not including the early robot/Lije Baley books, it would have received 5 stars if it was for the fi [...]

    13. Just wonderful!Asimov’s original Foundation series wasn’t instantly popular when it was released in the 50s, but like the proverbial snowball rolling downhill, became one of the most popular science fiction series of all time. Fast forward thirty years, and Asimov could no longer avoid writing the fourth book in the series – not only because his publisher was becoming rather insistent, but because readers (even readers like me who were born after the original series was published) were bom [...]

    14. Finally! Asimov realizes the potential of his Foundation stories in this fourth volume in the series. There is an altogether different feel to it. Less a dramatic history and more of a suspense/mystery tale, Foundation's Edge focuses on Councilman of the Foundation Golan Trevize whose conspiracy theories concerning the existence of the Second Foundation get him in a lot of trouble. Set up opposite Golan is a young speaker of the Second Foundation, also aware that something is completely wrong wi [...]

    15. aaa mass effect 3.Bu kitap şimdiye kadar okuduğum Vakıf serisi romanları içinde beni en sürükleyeni ve aynı zamanda eser miktarda da olsa düşündüreni oldu. Karakterler serideki diğer karakterlere göre çok daha keskin ve birbirinden ayrık çizilmiş. Bir sonraki kitaba hazırlık niteliğinde, gelecek insanlarının köken sorununa, dünyaya dair yaptığı spekülasyonlar da okuması keyifli yerlerdendi. Ama şu da olabilir, beğenimin belki kitapla alakası olmayan sebepleri var [...]

    16. Admit it: after reading Second Foundation, you believed that the Second Foundation was safe forever more, didn't you? Didn't you?! Of course you did.How unfortunate for you, as people - even future people - love a conspiracy theory and will hold to it with incredible tenacity even to the point of making a second attempt at eradicating the Second Foundation the key plot point of yet another novel by Asimov. And why do the people of the (First) Foundation want to eradicate the Second Foundation? B [...]

    17. Asimov returns to the great Foundation series with a great sequel. Written decades after the original trilogy, Edge seems to have a different writing style. In my opinion, an improvement on the earlier Foundation stories. The original trilogy built up to this point using many characters and twisted plots. Asimov used his ingenious ‘psychohistory’ mechanism to drive the story through hundreds of years, always pushing along a destiny for mankind.This sequel is set five hundred years forward fr [...]

    18. Some say that the two books he wrote later in the Foundation story aren't as good as those that he wrote in the 50's. Don't believe it, this is every bit as good as the best of the original trilogy. The Seldon plan is only half way to completion but the Foundation is strong, surely ready to re-establish a unified galactic empire now. Why wait another 500 years? Only the Second Foundation can possibly stand in their wayor is there something else?The second time I've read this book and I very much [...]

    19. I'm reasonably sure I've read this before but so long ago that I forgot a lot of it. In any case Asimov is always a pleasure to read. Asimov is still considered one of the three great masters of Science Fiction. Sometimes I just need a break from Mt. Readmore and want to read a book reliably good. Asimov often fills the bill in that case. In this case, we find there are organizations involved besides just the First and Second Foundations. But are there other extra organization(s) involved or not [...]

    20. [1987]Quarto capitolo della trilogia della fondazione, questo libro prende in considerazione un tempo meno lungo della storia galattica asimoviana.[2010]Le tre stelle sono la media tra le quattro della prima e le due della seconda lettura.

    21. Foundation's Edge (Foundation (Publication Order) #4), Isaac Asimov عنوان: لبه بنیاد کهکشانی؛ نویسنده: آیزاک آسیموف؛ مترجم: پیمان اسماعیلیان خامنه؛ تهران، بنیاد مستضعفان و جانبازان، 1373، در 520 ص،

    22. Štvrtý diel sa konečne dostal z osídiel Seldonovho plánu a už predvídateľných kríz a ich riešení. Celé to dostáva nový náboj a doslova vesmírne rozmery. Obrovský oblúk Asimovových kníh cez tisícročia vyráža dych. Jediná výhrada, ktorú mám, je obrovská rola individuálnych hrdinov a ich činov. Myslím, že história je omnoho menej psychologická a omnoho viac sociologická, ale taký scifi román by sa samozrejme ťažko písal a ešte horšie čítal.

    23. Con questo sequel Asimov dimostra tutta la sua bravura. Tirare fuori un'altra trama avvincente, per di più non contemplata durante la stesura della prima saga, e renderla comunque originale è da maestri.

    24. Foundation's Edge is a sequel to Second Foundation, and was written decades afterward. Before reading the book, as I looked at the cover, I noticed that this book earned/was awarded a Hugo for "best book." I was skeptical. Having read all of the Foundation Series books leading up to this one, I thought this might be an honorary award; Asimov was a founding father of modern Science Fiction, and perhaps due for an award.Not so. Of all of the Foundation books I've read so far this is far and away t [...]

    25. I read the Foundation Saga a while ago. Back then, I'd bought the first few volumes in Spanish. In fact, I think the first volume I bought was actually, "Prelude to Foundation," of which I'll have to write a review soon because it probably is my favourite in the entire saga. However, while Prelude may be my favourite, "Foundation's Edge" isn't far behind.This time around I read it in English during an 8-hour bus ride to and from. It must've taken me around 10 hours to finish due to Asimov's rath [...]

    26. After the collapse of the galactic empire, the second Foundation is preparing the way for a second empire to emerge in some centuries and restore the civilization to the galaxy. But something is amiss, as there seems to be another powerful group of telepaths out there that stand in their way. This book was written decades after the initial trilogy, so it has a far more mature way of writing. The characters feel a bit livelier and there are far more descriptions around technologies and the galaxy [...]

    27. Foundations Edge is a story of struggles: youth vs age, physical vs mental, and finally machine vs human. In between are many life lessons, the most memorable being “silence can say a lot”. Published at the time of the weakening, but stubbornly resistant communism of the mid 1980s,the underlying theme is the dangers, and ultimate futility, of relying on a human-constructed plan. The book’s forward provides a decent background for those who missed the preceding episodes on the saga. The cru [...]

    28. Isaac Asimov returns to the Foundation series some 30 years later, bringing with him some good twine to reel in his other series (Robots and Empire). He also brings with him the authorial respect and catalog he lacked early on, and that led Foundation's Edge to the NY Times Bestseller list. But was it good?The first three books were told in pairs of stories, and this has only one, though with two distinct points of view (one for each Foundation). Schemes of both are brought together near Gaia, a [...]

    29. ‫از ادبیات علمی تا اسطوره.‫به نظر آسیموف در این کتاب تصمیم گرفته از خر علمی-تخیّلی بیاد پایین و سوار اسطوره بشه. در این کتاب دربارهٔ اسطورهٔ گایا می‌خونیم، البته نه دقیقاً به همون شکلی که از مادر زمین تا به حال خوندیم؛ بلکه گایایی شکل گرفته به دست روبات‌ها، بر روی سیّاره‌ای [...]
