    Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the grandest epics in the annals of imaginative literature. Now Herbert's son, Brian, working with Kevin J. Anderson and using Frank Herbert's own notes, reveals a pivotal epoch in the history of the Dune universe: the Butlerian Jihad, the war that was fought ten thousand years before the events of Dune - the war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines."

    Brian says: "enoyed premise but not execution"
    "The first audiobook I refuse to finish"
    Overall

    After four hours of listening, I finally gave up. I guess the author will eventually pull together all these character descriptions and subplots, but this drones on forever. At least a dozen times, I had to rewind because my mind drifted off...but I usually found out I hadn't missed a thing. The editors for this book needed to cut about 50% of the verbage.
    Needless to say, I certainly would not recommend this book to anyone. I listen to 3 audiobooks a month, on average, for the last 3 years. This is my first negative review (actually, my first review, but this one deserves my warning to other audible customers.)
