Foundation and Empire

Recommended Posts

I'm just about done with the first three books in the Foundation series. (reread) I was wondering if anyone here has read other Foundation books and what you thought of them.

Is Prelude to Foundation or Foundation Earth (for example) worth reading?

These books connect the trilogie with other stories and characters of the Asimov universe. So it is worth if you like to get a better understanding.

Foundation's Edge was good. I didn't enjoy Foundation and Earth as much - I found it a bit 'wordy'

The prequals were OK, but sadly not quite as epic as the originals. They are, however, much more readable than Foundation and Earth...

After you've finished those four, you can look at the 'second foundation trilogy' by Benford, Bear and Brin !

If you haven't already read them, and are looking for some more grand sweeping sci-fi, may I recommend Peter F Hamilton's "Commonwealth Saga" (Pandora's Star / Judas unchained) - humongous great books (1000 and 800 pages respectively) of epic space opera :)
