a REAL American
I read these books decades ago and honestly didn't know if I cared for the story line. Now, after hearing them, I am totally engrossed with the mind of the author.
There's plenty of tense action here, and plenty of Herbert's great philosophical vision, with none of the vagaries or repetition that weighed it down in past books. He obviously had a lot to talk about. Compelling new places and characters arise with ancient connections to the ones we loved before, and a changed Bene Gesserit makes a much more sympathetic protagonist than I would have expected. This may be my new favorite book in the series.
a lot easier to get through than children and god emperor. better character development but still some clunky story telling.
Well read. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Gives insight into what happened to the "golden path" after the God Emperor died.
