Second Foundation

Second Foundation is the third book in the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov.  The first two were better but this one was not bad. The first book was essentially several short stories while the second was basically two novellas. This one also had 2 stories but a much bigger cast of characters and i felt it skipped between the characters too much, with too many gaps in time.  Also, how did the Second Foundation get their mental powers?  And why are the First Foundation so damn scared of them?  I mean, they spring from the same source and have as their goal the same end: to make the Universal Dark Age as short as possible.  Plenty of the Foundationers come off sounding like krazy konspiracy guys because there doesn't seem to be any real reason for their fears.  

ah well.  a 5 I think, as i did like Arkady.
