Isaac Asimov Ç 6 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD Foundation î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB FoundationBut soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords rising in the wake of the receding Empire Mankind's last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice submit to the barbarians and be overrun or fight them and be destroy. Foundation The name is apt Isaac Asimov s sprawling scifi tale is the rock on which much of today s space opera is built Truer scifi historians than me would cite the late 1920s and pulp magazines such as Amazing Stories and E E Doc Smith as the DNA donors that spawned a thousand space operas They would be right but Asimov s fame towers above all others His 1952 story of the decline and fall of the Galactic Empire is space opera s foundationUnfortunately the analogy continues Foundation has all the elements of poor writing that makes stuffy literary aristocrats stick their noses up at the genre And rightfully so Flat characters a lack of economical yet creative prose and endless dialogue are the genre s Achilles heel and not in a cool Ilium way This rant covers only Foundation itself Despite owning an old edition which includes the entire original trilogy I only managed to slog through the first book Barely The first chapter with Hari Seldon and a death or exile decision was promising But the plot device that makes the story potentially interesting also pulls it apart like the gravity of a gas giant Foundation spans decades and with each shift into a new era you re introduced to new characters You learn almost nothing about them and in some scenes the dialogue is so pervasive violating the hallowed show don t tell rule so thouroughly I was actually unsure where these people were One of my favorite parts of reading science fiction is being exposed to the new ideas of smart visionary authors Good scifi ends up being right cool or both I obviously try to give anything as old as Foundation of a pass on this front but I really didn t find any of its concepts mind bending or even mind tickling Psychohistory as I understood it was alright I guess Statistics Dated elements abruptly eject the reader from the ever so important suspension of disbelief For days I couldn t shake the scene where two characters shared a bunch of snuff I thought is it reasonable that humans are still using tobacco products 12000 years in the future And snuff Atomic energy is the big technology in the Foundation universe That s like fascinating and stuff Immediately after I finished Foundation I picked up Scott Westerfeld s The Risen Empire A uote on the cover claimed In the tradition of Asimov Uh oh But wait Intellegent turns of phrase Break neck action Verisimilitude in the progression of civilizations Technology that drives the plot is extremely inventive and is extrapolated from today s knowledge base Well thought out characters whose behaviour makes sense but is not cardboard predictable Other wicked cool oddities like undead royal families No snuff Yes I m in the safe and familiar bio tech embrace of a trusted friend New Space OperaStories like Foundation are the reason why we even needed a New Space Opera in the first place Unlike the misadventure of New Coke this was a significant improvement on the original The authors of this reinvigorated genre like Banks Hamilton and Westerfeld with all due respect to Stephen Baxter and his physics lectures some call novels focus on uality writing character development and social commentary Oh and scientific accuracy verging on whooooa there A few like Dan Simmons georgeous Hyperion are masterworks in any genre All this poison being said I can easily watch old GI Joe and He Man cartoons and marvel at their sheer genius while a 10 year old today would brand me an idiot Nostalgia is a shiny prism through which we all view our past If I had not first read Foundation in my thirties but instead in my teens this review would like be entitled Asimov is like chewing on expensive snuff But alas I am stuck with current me This review also marks several times now that I give poor grades to scifi written prior to 1980 I m a linear person old before new read things in order cake before coffee no spoilers please So I ve attempted to read Asimov Niven Pohl and I have to say meh I now vow brown cow to not feel guilty by skipping the basement of my favorite genre and instead enjoy the first floor second floor jacuzzi balcony and pool I ll get to that basement One day When it s raining Ooo look a suirrelBeing a solid fan of New Space Opera I must give proper respect to works upon whose shoulders it stands I do so But as with many of you I have books on my to read list than I can tackle in a lifetime I must prune and trim aggressively and I m afraid the rest of the Foundation series is likely to end up on the greenhouse floor Hopefully before I m dust a clever New Space Opera idea about extending human life expectancy will give me time to explore books about advanced civilizations prone to cancer of the mouth due to snuff addictions Until then I give thanks to the Old and say bring on the New Destiny up at the genre And rightfully so Flat characters a lack of economical yet creative prose and endless dialogue are the genre s Achilles heel and not in a cool Ilium way
