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.
Here we are now 5,000 years after Paul led the Fremen and 1,500 years after Leto II. We see that those scattered in the scattering are coming back with a new enemy. This new enemy thinks that they can conquer the old empire quickly and easily. Gee, if that was true then there would be no story would there. They also have a secret. Here we also learn all the side effects of Leto II golden Path when he took over the breeding program. There are many moving parts that help set the stage for the rest of the books in the series.
I read the dune series when I was younger, and enjoyed then all, but this was the first on that I sought out when I had a chance to listen. The notion of various changes in people that returned from the skattering, and even the changes in "Honored Matras" from Reverened Mothers was facinating read.
Just an all around awesome person.
I can say that Frank Herbert was a genius, as well as most of his works, but this book is a little drawn out. I feel preached to through most of these books, but it is still so worth the ending. It is really amazing how Herbert talks about sex and I not enjoy it. Although I would love a whore from the scattering to preach to me.
