This is a fine addition to the Dune series; however, it suffers a greater flaw than even its predecessor. The volume of repeated information is OBNOXIOUS!!!! If I hear that Zufa Sinva (sp?) is disappointed with Aurelius (sp?) and her daughter one more time, I am going to throw my iPod out of the window. That also goes for Teo Holtzman's frustration at not being the be-all-end-all of the science community. And also for Erasmus's repeated use of the word "curious" or its derivatives. This book gives one a headache at the continual feeling that you've heard it already. Shouldn't an editor have caught the ridiculous volume of repitition before publication? Good story- horrible editing. Curiously, the Arrakis and slave narration sections are the only parts which are over-ridden by these repeats.
