So, I LOVED Dune, and was really disappointed by Dune Messiah - but Children of Dune gets back to the grand, empire defining space opera I was craving.
Babbling and babbling, lacks the storyline of Dune. no plot, just hours of mystic drama that goes nowhere...
Story was awesome, did a great job of thing together every loose end from the previous book. Interesting parallels with the first book as well. Not crazy about the narration. The narrator often changes mid sentence for two words or so, then switches back. These guys have excellent narration voices, the editing is just poor.
Lover of books!
I have listened to this book several times and I always enjoy! This book really brings Dune full circle...enjoy!
The last book from the Dune series "Dune Messiah" was boring as a box of rocks. However this book, "Children of Dune" was a complete 180. It recaptured the adventurous spirit that made the original "Dune" so great.
My favorite character was Alia, and I really felt sorry for her situation. Least favorite character was the same as the last book - Duncan Idaho. Thankfully this book doesn't waste too much time on him.
Narration was top notch. I am looking forward to hearing "God Emperor of Dune".
I love the Dune series but alway got distracted when reading. The audio books allow me to listen to them will easy. The group of narrators is superb.
