Honestly, I don’t get why this book/series is so popular. There are some interesting elements to it (for instance, the use of religion as a tool of mass control and the implicit resultant argument that religion is no more than a fraud, “the opiate of the people,” after all), but the book gave me little to enjoy or dig into. The forces of the novel are broad, historical, dealing with masses of people; this means that there is little to no room for individual characters here and little to be done
There are a couple of minor things I do like about the book. One is Salvor Hardin’s statement that “violence is the last refuge of the incompetent,” which I like for its endorsement of nonviolent alternatives. Another is the characters’ habit of saying “Space” or “Galaxy” instead of God when they exclaim or curse.
