Publisher's Summary

Fifty-six hard years after the events of The Machine Crusade, after the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. The human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight.

Unfortunately, Omnius has one last, deadly card to play. In a last-ditch effort to destroy humankind, virulent plagues are let loose throughout the galaxy, decimating the populations of whole planets. The war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.

In the greatest battle of science fiction history, human and machine face off one last time....And on the desert planet of Arrakis, the legendary Fremen of Dune become the feared fighting force to be discovered by Paul Maud'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, Dune.

    "Narrator"

    It's incredibly difficult to bring science-fiction alive in audio or motion picture. I suppose the Sci-Fi channel production of 2000 was technically flawed at times but generally speaking a great success. In my opinion, this success can be attributed largely to the actors. The voice of this audio book, however, is not suitable. Personally, I find that Dune should be read by an unusual voice reflecting the unusual setting. This voice does not bring out the contrasting environments within Dune - harsh but delicate, etc.
    I agree with previous posts - a different narrator is needed. No offense to the narrator.

    "Must Hear to Complete the Trilogy"

    If you've listen to the first two, you won't be surprized with this book. Unfortunately while some traditions get their orgin and flow to a conclusion, other traditions are forced to fit, some dead-end with anti-climaxes, and others are just left undefined.
    I think this should have been a four book series to properly address some issues and set the stage for the orginal book.

    "Couldn't stop listening."

    After reading (or listening) to all of the Dune series, I was anxiously awaiting the next book. It was not a disappointment. The authors developed the characters and explained some of the mysteries in the other Dune books. There were some surprising twists, too. I look forward to the next book.

    "A great 3rd installment"

    I really enjoyed all three of these Dune prequel books. Along the same genre as Star Wars. While this 3rd installment could stand on its own, I recommend listening to the first and second installments before listening to this one. A lot of the character introductions and character development is done in those books. Narrators make or break an audio book. Scott Brick is an excellent narrator and a great choice for this book.

    "Dune: The Battle of Corrin (Unabridged)"

    Please get another narrator! I could not force my self to finish it. I'll stick with the written form until a new narrator is found. Too bad the narrator ruined it because I really do enjoy Brian's continuation of Dune's story.

    "An excellent addition to the Dune saga"

    I found this book a great continuation of the saga leading up to world of Dune. I must listen for those who loved Dune in my view.

    "This is a V E R Y L O N G"

    This is one of several wretched prequels written by the son of the author of the original author. There is a statistical phenomena in prediction of ability called "regression towards the mean", and for those of you who know what this means, this is a primary example.

    Since it is a prequel, it makes most of the book rather pointless. You can pretty much figure that the virus attack does not wipe out humanity. Etc. etc. etc.

    The writing is bad. But if I were to write that sentence in the style of the authors, I would have to write, "The writing is really, really, really, really bad. The most bad of all time. So bad mother's reading the work had spontaneous abortions." Or something like that.

    The original Dune books are among the greatest of the science fiction genre. The prequels like this one by the son and his named ghost writer are bad. Really, really, really bad.
