Not as good as Foundation, I found the Mule to be frustrating and annoying and wished beyond wishing that I could make him die. I can't understand what Asimov was intending with him but any suspense was removed from pretty early when I easily realized who the mule was. Asimov doesn't know how to do suspense very well and he's too obvious in trying to write in a character with superpowers that nobody knows who he is ... dun dun dun ... only you do so it's not really that fun at all. Plus I found him a terrible character, I guess throwing off the Foundation was all right in it's way but I couldn't really enjoy it.
