    "intersting story, excellent presentation"

    Frank Herbert is an excellent story teller and this is another example. The story is deep enough to keep your interest and flows at an even pace. Scott Brick does another wonderful job of bringing the book to life.

    Story
    "Interesting, but too many leaps."
    Any additional comments?

    I think the story was conceptually extremely interesting, but there are many points where you're forced to make large leaps— plot points happen without explanation. It feels as if you're supposed to accept the super powers of a character, that just appear over the course of a week, without ever delineating what those powers are (really). Different things happen that are just explained away as obviously within the purview of the new powers. It just felt a little forced at points.

    Story
    "Maybe the Rats Are Conducting Tests on You . . ."
    What did you like best about this story?

    While SciFi, this book plays out a lot like a spy novel. It is very heady and psychological with all the intrigue of undercover plants and double agents. Characters believe they are fully in control, only to find out that they've been played and all of their actions anticipated.

    Not everyone will enjoy the ambiguous way the story unfolds or the lack of direct explanation of what is happening, but for those that do, this novel is quite remarkable. The court room scenes where the attorneys have to believe enough in there clients to put there life on the line with their clients are especially entertaining.
