Reviewed March 1998
Well it's over 500 years sense the establishment of the Foundation and fans forced Asimov's publishers to make him continue the series. Again the characters are better
developed an there are more roles with women in power. In this installment we meet the mayor of the 1st Foundation and the hero, Councilman Trevize. Also, we see the interactions of the 2nd Foundation and its soon to be first speaker, Gendibal. Adding to the mix we have a new world, Gaia whose residents remind us of what much have happened to all those satellite worlds in the Robot Books. All in all the plot is interesting and leaves you needing another sequel, which I already possess and should be the next entry.
