Second Foundation (Foundation Series #3) by Isaac Asimov

So far the Foundation was safe. But there was a hidden Second Foundation to protect the first. The Mule has yet to find it, but he was getting closer all the time.

In a series that not only sets the bar in science fiction but I'd profoundly important in all of literature. The last paragraph will rock your world--if you've read what came before it.

This is the 3rd foundation novel I've read on my road to reading the whole series. Honestly these just keep getting better and better as they go. This story in particular has so much more intenisty then the last. I absolutely loved it. Definitely goign to pick up the next as soon as I can. :)

This is the best science fiction book ever, best of Asimov's, who's the best writer. The ending is amazing . . . but I won't spoil it! You can read it without reading any of the other Foundation books, though you'll want to once you read this one.

I just finished reading this for the second time. An enjoyable classic; mostly about the searches for the Second Foundation.

1st read as a teenager in 70's. It was indeed what it said. Still the Masterpiece.

I was disappointed in the first book; almost didn't finish the second; didn't expect to read the third until I got to the last few pages of the second. This third Foundation book made the others worth slogging through. It wasn't amazing. The female character Arcadia is an annoying little girl; there was a little confusion here and there and a few points were a bit predictable, but there are enough twists to make it worth reading. Far more exciting than the previous two.

I would say this is the best of the Foundation novels due to the slightly mysterious nature of the book and because of the deep characters, more detailed than in the preceding two. However, Asimov leaves his enjoyable retelling of the Fall of the Roman Empire for a new story idea, detracting from the plot just a tad.
