The breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert's classic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction's classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade.
More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat.
The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius, as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warrior class, a weapon against the machine-dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history: a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy.
And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen.
Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on best seller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dune continues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.

Great explanation of the different houses and factions. Nice to see into the past to better understand the future of the Dune story.
how could audio version be better than print version? Who the F%% wrote that question?
The Best Dune movie is by David Lynch. The end.
I love FH & KA's Dune books, they're awesome. I started at the BJ, Machine Crusade, Battle of Corrin, and now Sisterhood - I am starting over and going forward from 10,000 years back all the way to Paul of Dune. GO Herbert & Anderson!!!

when someone special was burned alived for the cause
Only because of the length of the book, it becomes much easier to listen than take the time to read the words.
I don't think there is anything to do to make the story more enjoyable. This is basically a history lesson on the past 10000 years.
Brick brings familiarity to the story.
There was no way I could listen to this book in one sitting. I wouldn't even consider trying it.
really, skip it. I listened to all three, so poorly written, and so focused on crud no one cares about...
Scott Brick is awesome.
