Review: Forward the Foundation (Foundation (Chronological Order) Prequel 2)

User Review  - Andrew O - Goodreads

I think this book was the worst of the Foundation Series and frankly is completely different from the impression one gets of Harry Seldon's past when reading the first Foundation book. Just read the first 3 books in the series, the rest is a bit of a let down. Read full review

User Review  - Catpow3r  - Goodreads

This kinda has spoilers. The only thing, in my opinion, that saves this book is Dors and Demerzel. They are awesome, awesome characters and a true continuation of Asimov work about robots. Ah, also ... Read full review
