Publisher Description

The fifth novel in Isaac Asimov’s classic science-fiction masterpiece, the Foundation series

THE EPIC SAGA THAT INSPIRED THE APPLE TV+ SERIES FOUNDATION

Golan Trevize, former Councilman of the First Foundation, has chosen the future, and it is Gaia. A superorganism, Gaia is a holistic planet with a common consciousness so intensely united that every dewdrop, every pebble, every being, can speak for all—and feel for all. It is a realm in which privacy is not only undesirable, it is incomprehensible.

But is it the right choice for the destiny of mankind? While Trevize feels it is, that is not enough. He must know.

Trevize believes the answer lies at the site of humanity’s roots: fabled Earth . . . if it still exists. For no one is sure where the planet of Gaia’s first settlers is to be found in the immense wilderness of the Galaxy. Nor can anyone explain why no record of Earth has been preserved, no mention of it made anywhere in Gaia’s vast world-memory. It is an enigma Trevize is determined to resolve, and a quest he is determined to undertake, at any cost.

Gabriel Acosta ,

Great series ending

I had to get this audiobook to finish the series, it was great. But the guy reading it is pretty bad... the way he pronounce some words like "why" gets on my nervs, and he puts little passion to his characters... but i endured through it and have to say that i love the story despite who is reading it.

Great book

The book itself as awesome. Great ending to the series. The guy reading it was pretty bad compared to the others reading the same series, but the book was worth it

for the AUDIO BOOK NOT THE BOOK

Isaac Asimov is a genius in my eyes and I cannot get enough of his books.
BUT:
Do yourself a favor and skip this narrator's version.
He is beyond horrible.
He is monotone, mechanical and robotic (no pun intended!!). It sounds no different than turning on the handicap feature of your computer and let it read text out!
You can hardly ever distinguish who is saying what because he can't change his tone much and often times he forgets it when he's trying and half through pretending to be a woman's voice, narrator's voice turns deep and masculine again. It's very confusing because the entire book is about conversation between two men and a woman and you just can't tell them apart all the time until specifically called out.
He's horrible, horrible, horrible.
