    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.

    Overall

    I'm a big fan of Frank Herbert's original works in this series. After the first book (Dune), this one ranks highest in my opinion, but it's true that you have to appreciate Herbert and the world he created in order to 'get' this book. I suspect most people who are fans of this book identify strongly with Duncan Idaho, who bridges the world of the first three books with God Emperor of Dune. Leto Atreides II is such a fascinating character - love him or hate him. The reading is very well done, especially Simon Vance and Katherine Kellgren. Fortunately Scott Brick only reads the chapter introductions... very much over the top as usual, but you can tune those out.
