    "Exciting all the way to the end."
    If you could sum up Chapterhouse Dune in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, Engaging, Thrilling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chapterhouse Dune?

    I found the moment when O'drade took to the failing sea for one last swim to be the emotional low of the book.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Duncan Idaho is the character who is most interesting as a person. His unwavering morals make him my favorite.


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

    No. I use audio books to get through long sessions such as those in a work environment which involves repetitive labor.


    Any additional comments?

    Chapterhouse Dune ends the Dune Chronicles nicely and gives the reader a sense of completing a great epic journey through humanity's common history in the universe.

    "Unchallenged Series Finale"

    Have read this book many times along with the rest of the Dune Series. First time listen on the audio format and all of the books were great. Could have done with out the female narrator of Chapterhouse however. She needs some serious work on tonality and timing. Other than that small irritation all was splendid!

    "A Good Listen"

    The reading of the book was consistent with the rest of the series. I went back to finish this series after six months of reading other material. I've listened to the whole series and not read one book. If you haven't made it to this book yet and are still on Dune then unless you want a great series that goes down hill with this book avoid it. I still have two left to go and they are by Brian Herbert. I hope he can write like his father.

    "Compelling Socio-Political fantasy drama"

    Dune was a magnificent book; but it pales in comparison with the final two books in the Frank Herbert timeline - Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse Dune.

    These two books stand together and follow on one from the other. The story focuses around the struggle of the Bene Gesserit (post Dune), the race to establish a supply of melange and a new threat that has merged from the scattering.

    The best part about these books is the ingenious social insight that Frank Herbert displayed as he explored principles of power, control, and minority rule. He teaches through the story also - principles of a supply and demand economy, different political and social structures, ecology....

    The Saga could not have finished in a finer way. The Author's family should be very proud of this accomplishment because it is far more than a compelling story.

    "Worth a revisit"

    Having read the Dune series years ago I wanted to re-visit my favorite book, Chapterhouse. This installment focuses on the Bene Gesserit with all their political scheming. The multiple narrators really helps make this audio book version come to life. Overall I was not disappointed.

    "a great read"

    I have all the books in this series and have had them for many years, if your in to sci-fi then you can't go wrong.
    I must have read this book 10 or more times over the years and never get board of it.
