Reviews of Foundation's Fear (1997)
Review by clong (2005-02-01)
Sorry for the brevity of this review, but I've blacked out most memories of this book. What I do remember is that the protagonist Hari Seldon felt incompatible with how I (fondly) remember Asimov's character, and that the prolonged storyline about AI realizations of Joan of Arc and Voltaire seemed utterly unrelated to the Foundation world of Asimov and completely boring, to boot. Other raters have clearly liked this book, but it left me with zero interest in reading any farther in the series, or anything else by Benford, for that matter.
