I really like how this book and the search for ancient earth ties the Foundation books and the Robot books together in a culmination of over 20,000 years of human history!

If Foundation’s Edge sees Asimov diving into the Thriller genre, then Foundation and Earth is the complete opposite. Here, Asimov attempts something far more psychological and philosophical. These were things he avoided in previous installments. Considering how different Edge was in terms of ideas, ...

At the beginning of this year part of my vague reading plan was to reread the original Foundation Trilogy then move on to the subsequent unread Foundation books that Asimov wrote during the 80s, 30 years after the last book of the trilogy, [b:Second Foundation|29580|Second Foundation (Foundation, #3...

With Foundation and Earth, I've made it through the core volumes of Asimov's Foundation series. There are two prequels (along with three books that expound on the future of the series by three other authors) that I will likely go ahead and read, but as far as what Asimov envisioned for the series, I...

I really wanted to give this book like a four, but upon further reflection I just can't. Foundation and Earth is the conclusion of Asimov's masterpiece Foundation Series (I haven't read the two prequels yet) and it takes the series in a completely new direction. Which is wonderful, and also proble...

This book doesn't stand out in my memory as well as the first four, but I only read this one once and had read the previous books multiple times. I recall enjoying the search for Earth, finding the end a bit of a let-down, but wanting to pick up the Robot books to see the connections. I never did.
