    More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

    Joel D Offenberg says: "Almost as good as the original"
    "Must be a Dune fan"
    Overall

    When asked my favorite book, I answer Dune. I understand that it is not everyone's cup of tea.
    Of the series, God Emperor is my favorite and this audiobook brought forth other aspects to consider. I enjoy contemplating Frank Herbert's writings.
    If you have interest, please be sure to have checked out the others prior to this in the series: Dune, Dune Messiah, and Children of Dune.

    I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.

    Overall

    I wanted some vampire drivel, and boy how! This delivered!
    Needing some tedious, mind numbing literature to get me through an 8 hour drive, I got this (and the 2nd of the serious) as the summaries read interestingly enough. My moan of excruciation began with "Audible Inc. and Harlequin bring you..." and continued through the trashy "passion" scenes. How come from the male characters' viewpoint these scenes are romantic and full of love while from the female character's they are all hard core porn?
    The second of the series proved worse and I found myself fast forwarding; no desire to hear anymore of the series.
    Why would I subject myself to the second, you ask? The narrator. Her rendition of the annoying witch was so off kilter that it kept me awake when the monotony of the highway threatened to creep in.
    To sooth myself after these, I flipped on Pride & Prejudice.

    This Junior Library Guild selection by Elise Broach is sure to become a favorite of all young sleuths. Sixth-grader Hero is captivated by the stories about her new home, especially the mystery of the missing million-dollar diamond and a 500-year-old necklace. As she searches for clues to their whereabouts she stumbles upon another perplexing question: Who was the real William Shakespeare?

    Stacy says: "Shakespeare or de Vere"

    Overall

    Quick moving and enjoyed by the entire family. Introduces literary motifs in a interesting way, along with Shakepeare (or Edward de Vere, whichever you believe).
