The worst of the Foundation novels, and possibly Asimov's worst novel. This was the last book he wrote before he died, and was released only after his death. It seems that for this book, he forgot about consistency or good writing, and just wrote what he felt like. I suppose he'd earned it.

For all that, it's not awful. It just doesn't really fit in with the rest of the canon. At that, I think it's better than some of the Foundation books that other authors have written (Foundation's Fear comes to mind).
