The fifth novel in Asimov's popular Foundation series opens with second thoughts. Councilman Golan Trevize is wondering if he was right to choose a collective mind as the best possible future for humanity over the anarchy of contentious individuals, nations and planets. To test his conclusion, he decides he must know the past and goes in search of legendary Earth, all references to which have been erased from galactic libraries. The societies encountered along the way become arguing points in a book-long colloquy about man's fate, conducted by Trevize and traveling companion Bliss, who is part of the first world/mind, Gaia.

    " I enjoyed the earlier foundation books a little bit more. I also found the ending a little bit of a let down and it really left you hanging. But the book was a great exploration of the tension that exists between individualism and collectivism. The funny part of this series was the technology that Asimov "dreamed" up for his universe. He did a really good job of not getting too wacky on the science (Asimov was a scientist after all). All in all it was an enjoyable read. "

    " Another enjoyable read from the Foundation series. The book describes the adventures of a trio of characters we met in the previous book. Their journey in search of Earth takes them to several worlds, many unlike any they've seen before. Their visits brings about healthy discussion on the nature of humanity and the best future for the Galaxy. The book ties up many loose ends and delves into the history and motivations that brought about the state of the Galaxy and the events that triggered the first book. I look forward to reading the prequels. "

    " I enjoyed this one far more than the last, although the bickering between Trevize and Bliss was tiresome. Overall, a good ending to a series that lasted 35 years. "
