Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

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 time?but now he is certain he knows where it lies.

The fate of the Foundation rests on young Arcadia Darell, only fourteen 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, poor printing
By Nobody on May 31, 2020
Asimov gets 4 stars for his story. Still fun and intriguing after all these decades.

Del Rey publishing gets 2 stars for its printing. The first 2 volumes in this series were published by Bantam. The print font was a good size and easy to read. This third volume was published by Del Rey, and the font is much smaller and very hard to read. I've attached a picture to show the difference. You might want to find an easier to read version.
