To go along with reading Foundation a couple of weeks ago, I continued on the series to read Foundation and Empire.
One of the things I liked about Foundation was watching time march on with each individual story, this one only had two stories. It was interesting to see how one story created the history for the next and how history would become myth and legend just 1 or 2 stories later. These two stories were almost completely separate of each other. It had a feel of two short stories that Asimov linked in his Foundation universe, but could have been separated.
I found that I liked the second story more than the first, a bit of mystery in that one that kept me guessing. I did guess the twist before it happened, but I do not think Asimov gave it away with too many hints, I just got lucky.
But there is not much to say for this book that was not already said about Foundation. If you read that you should continue the series and read this one, and I plan to move on to the third book to complete the trilogy.
Until next time…
