Publisher's Summary

Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Navigators of Dune is the climactic finale of the Great Schools of Dune trilogy, set 10,000 years before Frank Herbert's classic Dune.

The story line tells the origins of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood and its breeding program, the human-computer Mentats, and the Navigators (the Spacing Guild), as well as a crucial battle for the future of the human race, in which reason faces off against fanaticism. These events have far-reaching consequences that will set the stage for Dune, millennia later.

    "Amazing conclusion to the Great Schools of Dune"
    Where does Navigators of Dune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Navigators of Dune was one of my top audiobook experiences, partly because this book is an amazing conclusion to the previous two books (Sisterhood of Dune and Mentats of Dune) and partly because I waited so long after multiple cliffhangers and so many storyline threads left unknown until this book! I finished Navigators of Dune which is 18 hours long in less than two days. The way Brian and Kevin wrote this story was masterful and I'm thankful to them for not leaving this trilogy within Dune unwritten!


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

    Scott Brick did a wonderful narration as always, he really brings out the depth of character - of the characters through his voice. Thank you Scott!


    Any additional comments?

    Some may be put off by reading prequels in general because it's history but even knowing some general things from the subsequent books, I found the prequels very suspenseful. If you've never read a book from the Dune universe, you're really missing out. Start with the first prequel Dune: The Butlerian Jihad and go in order or start with Dune itself and then read the prequels after. The Dune saga has enriched my life. Thank you Brian and Kevin for continuing where Frank left off from his vaulted notes. Thank you!

    "Wow!"

    This may be my favorite Dune book of all time! Action packed and although I knew where things were going I was riveted.

    Story
    "Brian and Kevin do Frank a real service!"
    Where does Navigators of Dune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The new Dune novels are always a pleasure to listen to. This book was well written, narration was wonderful, and I hope there is more to come.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you are a fan of the Dune universe, than this story is exactly what you wanted to read. Learning about how the various organizations came to be was exciting, and fascinating. The Navigators guild, the Sisterhood, and the Mentat's in their toddler stage, how their philosophic concepts lead to a humanity that reaches out for a potential that you come to believe is possible, ok maybe not for the Navigators, but why not organized thoughts? Why not precise mental control over your physical being?


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

    The great thing about Scott Brick, is that he doesn't become part of the story. His narration has the ability to weave a great story into mental image that engrosses you.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't actually want this one made into a movie because I don't see how it could be done well. Perhaps a multi-season tv series, but then again it would kind of require information from the earlier books and could be confusing.


    Any additional comments?

    For some people, Starwars is the best thing ever, for some people it was Star Trek, for me it has been and always will be the Dune Universe. I realize there are other great series out there, but nothing captures the imagination like Dune.

    "A Must Read!"

    Absolutely loved this book! If you ever wondered about the Legend of Vorian Atreides, or the Harrkinans, this book provides the insight. Thank you Herbert and Anderson for this amazing piece of fiction.

    "Loved it"

    Scott (narrator) nails every one of the Dune books he reads. I have consumed every book in the Dune saga. If you love the Dune saga, you will love this audio book.

    "love the Continuing Story"

    Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson have really created their own mini dune Universe with these characters and it's exciting to be back in that same universe with these characters over again. I really hope there's another book so we can continue on with these characters that may have developed so well and so we can get the continuing precursor to the Dune universe
