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.
I've read all six now of Frank Herberts Dune series. One was of course, the best, 2 pretty good, but not quite as good as 1, 3 Basically a history listen for things to come. 4 Very long and hard to follow, 5 Now it's getting good again and I liked 6 even better.
Sorry, don't want to provide spoilers.
They do a good job, but it's a little hard to follow who's character they're portraying at times.
A must read for Dune-heads.
The Dune series is an old favorite. I have read them many times, but never had them read to me. What a delight.
I think it was the final attack on Leto. His pain and fore knowledge. Maybe even relief.
Duncan in all his incarnations, is my favorite.
Even God Worms get the blues.
Listen to all of the Dune books. Their are 6 books before the book Dune. It is great to have all the background before the Rise of Paul.
