    Capturing all the complexity and grand themes of the original, this prequel to the Dune series weaves a new tapestry of betrayal, passion, and destiny into a saga that expands the tale written by Frank Herbert more than 30 years ago.

    Robert says: "Maybe better than original Audible production."
    "Ultimately a disappointment"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story with more believable characters


    What was most disappointing about Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson ’s story?

    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.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    These authors fall far short of paying homage to the original series (and the original author)
