With this book I completed reading a series of 16 books in the order recommended as the story unravels - listed below. (Robot, Empire, and Foundation series).
Foundation and Earth offers a nice closure tying events well with the Robot series however, he only goes 500 years into the Sheldon Plan leaving the reader to wonder how the Plan worked in the end.
Although Asimov left an opening for the next book which never happened, I was not so much bothered by the cliffhanger as much by the 500 remaining years of the Sheldon Plan. One can argue those are one and the same but I did not experience it that way.
Overall Foundation and Earth was a crescendo after the other five foundation books and the one I liked the most.

The whole series: I thoroughly enjoyed the Robot series, but I had to push through some of the Empire books (Pebble in the Sky). Most Foundation books were entertaining and I wanted to go back to reading any chance i got.

I am being careful not to give anything away, or at least nothing that you could not find in common places.

I gave it fours stars instead of five because on at least one occasion I predicted what will happen. I don't always appreciate such predictability and Asimov had such an amazing imagination that he could have avoid it.

This is the recommended reading order:
1. I Robot (or The Complete Robot) [ROBOTS]
2. The Caves of Steel [ROBOTS]
3. The Naked Sun [ROBOTS]
4. Mirror Image (short story) [ROBOTS]
5. The Robots of Dawn [ROBOTS]
6. Robots and Empire [ROBOTS]
7. The Stars, Like Dust [EMPIRE]
8. The Currents of Space [EMPIRE]
9. Pebble in the Sky [EMPIRE]
10. Prelude to Foundation [FOUNDATION]
11. Forward the Foundation [FOUNDATION]
12. Foundation [FOUNDATION]
13. Foundation and Empire [FOUNDATION]
14. Second Foundation [FOUNDATION]
15. Foundation's Edge [FOUNDATION]
16. Foundation and Earth [FOUNDATION]

Science fiction literature has been part of my reading since my early teens. My earliest readings contained, by today's standards, relatively tame sexual interludes and of course assured my continued reading. Sexuality in this example of Asimov's writing is really quite tame, but would have kept the 14 year old me entranced. The adult me is impressed with the mature sexual attitudes taken in this story.
Beyond all that Asimov provokes mature conjecture about humanity and profound philosophical conjectures about broad questions, not only of human governance, but also human interactions across different worlds and cultures. This book like many of his benefits from Dr. Asimov's excellent education and his being present at the cutting edges of physics and science during some of its most profound advances. He refers to things like the uncertainty principle in an off hand way that does require a bit from the reader.
In summary, Dr. Asimov gives us very entertaining stories interspersed with thought provoking philosophy and sophisticated scientific references. It's a very satisfying book to read.

Foundation and Earth picks up right where Foundation's Edge left of as Trevize, Perolat and Bliss continue their search for Earth. The entire story-line includes the famous wit found in all Asimov's novels but seems to pack in even more intrigue than normal as it slowly becomes clear that something even greater than the Seldon plan may be at play. The story is very fast paced making it difficult to put this book down and it stretches the imagination more than any of the previous books. Asimov uses this final book to tie in both the Robot series and the Foundation series as well as clear up many other questions left open in his prior novels. The result is a very satisfying conclusion the the Foundation series.

For those new to the series, here are the specific seven books tied directly into the Foundation story line and their original date of publication. I read these in the order they were published and was very happy to have chosen that order. Asimov also tied in some of this other book series into this one (specifically his Robot series) thus making the entire story line a much larger volume of books.

Prelude to Foundation (1988)
Forward the Foundation (1993)
Foundation (1951)
Foundation and Empire (1952)
Second Foundation (1953)
Foundation's Edge (1982)
Foundation and Earth (1986)

I am an avid reader of Isaac Asimov and have re-read the three main novels time and again over the last 30 years. In those books he occasionally devolves the story into near-meaningless banter between two characters. Alas, this novel is mostly made of such banter and the plot was predictable from reading the first few chapters. Not his best work.

Kind of boring and very dull. Not very much action and a lot of going over the same ideas again and again. Plus Asimov is using this book to link to his other robot series so it feels like an advert at the end rather than a conclusion.

In writing Foundation and Earth, Asimov (I think) tried too hard to write a sequel to the sequel of the Foundation Series. Asimov seems to have attempted to tie together many of the themes of his Robot, Empire, and Foundation series into a coherent package. Alas, the result is a hodge-podge that fails in its (nearly impossible) mission. Isaac Asimov will stand as a giant of science fiction, but this work should be relegated to obscurity.

Exactly the same as all the other books in the series. A good continuation but Ionly gave it three stars if you can put up with the philosophical discussions about the era which at a rough estimate, make up about eighty percent of the book. As previous, I'm sure Asimov wanted to give the correct feel of the time and the discussions amongst the prime characters will raise some questions of your own but it made "falling into the story" a bit more than a chore for me. I found myself speed reading past those sections just to get to the action. Overall, a good finish to the series just to tie it all up.
