    Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of Dune, The Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah. Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam is dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan is imprisoned. Paul's former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides.

    Overall

    I have listened to most of the other Dune books and I have enjoyed them immensely. I bought this book hoping it would be just as good., but was a little disappointed. It still was a good book, but it seemed a little contrived. I felt this book tried to fill in some of the history that was left to the readers imagination. It changed my conception of Paul Atreides from being a horrible despot to a do-gooder just stuck in a bad situation. The fun of reading is to use your imagination and I felt my own interpretation of what happened was more realistic than this book portrays. The book still had all the excitement and adventure of the other books and I did enjoy it.
