"A fourth visit to Arrakis that is every bit as fascinating as the other three - every bit as timely." (Time)
"Rich fare...Heady stuff." (Los Angeles Times)
"The saga contrinues"
If you loved the three precceding books this serves up another dose of spice for you, while less of a hero story than Dune and chilren of Dune there are certainly enough moments to keep you hooked, oh and it sets up the story for herctics and chapter house nicely. Enjoy
Dune was such an dazzling brilliant work that even though the sequels have failed to live up to the original I have nevertheless persevered with them. Really though, unless you area masochist I wouldn't bother!
This is a very very slow book. Not much happens and there is a lot of psycho babble about women soldiers stagnating society because women fighters don't rape and pillage - and this goes on and on.
Dune is epic - this is poor.
"Close,but no cigar"
I liked it but it lacked the pace and enthralling approach of the preceding books.
"Another 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.
