Solid audio book and good story.
I have always loved Duncan Idaho!
Jessica - wanted to hear more from her.
I am really glad I finally broke down my resistance to Non-Frank Dune stories. B. Herbert and K Anderson are different, but very good.
Yes, but I would tell them to read the series in sequence.
Hearin' what goes on in the different houses and how they relate to each other and the other houses.
I kept listenin' til the battery needed rechargin' again several times.
Find the series and start with the first, then do them all in sequence. I under stood it lots better than I did the movie.
Not this book, but it wets my interests for other Dune books by Brian Herbert and Anderson.

Another hit by these two. I have enjoyed every one. I grew up reading Dune, and was influenced by Herberts ideas. I was awed by Herbert, and these books are a fantastic listen. I have often searched under Scott Brick to help pick books. He is a fantastic narrator. The Dune Purists may have been popular on 1 or 2 of the infinite timelines.
I loved Frank Herbert's original Dune trilogy, and I have read it multiple times in the last 30 years. This book, however, just does not make me want to finish it, much less read the rest of the trilogy. The Harkonnens are evil, power hungry monsters. The Atreides are good, altruistic, defenders of humanity. I get it. Unfortunately, the characters in this book are more like 2 dimensional graphic novel evil bad guys and heroic good guys than the complex, thinking, conflicted characters that populate the original Dune. I listened to about 3 hours, and when even Scott Brick, whom I have liked multiple other books, couldn't seem to find any enthusiasm for reading it, I turned it off. I doubt seriously that I will ever listen to it again.
A better story with more believable characters
The authors take a universe that's already rich in potential and squander it in predictable, unsatisfying storytelling. Their over reliance on shock value does little to hide lack-luster plots and two-dimensional characters.
These authors fall far short of paying homage to the original series (and the original author)
Great book cant wait to read the next one, almost as Dune. Kevin J and Brain Herbert have out done themselves. These books have so much background material, its as vast a world as Star Wars or Lord of The Rings.
Yes, it was an excellent return to the original. I enjoyed it as much as Dune.
The characters and the writing style.
