    The desert planet Arrakis, called Dune, has been destroyed. Now, the Bene Gesserit, heirs to Dune's power, have colonized a green world - and are tuning it into a desert, mile by scorched mile. Chapterhouse Dune is the last book Frank Herbert wrote before his death and stunning climax to the epic Dune legend that will live on forever.

    N. Geninatti says: "Exciting all the way to the end."
    "Stop here if you love Frank Herbert's writing....."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Chapterhouse Dune the most enjoyable?

    The narrative cast for this audiobook is excellent, especially the chapters from Scytale the Tlielaxu POV. Would reccommend the whole series up to this point.


    What other book might you compare Chapterhouse Dune to and why?

    Game of Thrones on a galactic polictical scale, the Bible on a religious scale, and The Republic on a philosophic scale.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They provide the little inflections on some of the lines that would normally just be read w/o any emotion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO. It being over 15 hours is the only reason I would not listen in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    After this book, the series really goes downhill. No malice to Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson, they are just not Frank Herbert. While listening or reading Frank's work I felt like I had to have a Thesaurus handy. Every page would have a particular word on it that was waaaay outside my vocabulary and perked my interest to look it up.
    -The continuation books/stories feel like action adventures to me, and lack any deep dialouge or monologue's. It's just missing something.
    -The work of Brian and Kevin take HUGE liberties with whether the Atreides got all the way back to Ancient Greece, or just the "Cymek" era of Aggamemnon the Titan. Frank books are pretty clear on that subject, even characters with the genetic memories state it......
