The desert planet Arrakis, called Dune, has been destroyed. Now, the Bene Gesserit, heirs to Dune's power, have colonized a green world - and are tuning it into a desert, mile by scorched mile. Chapterhouse Dune is the last book Frank Herbert wrote before his death and stunning climax to the epic Dune legend that will live on forever.
Compelling Socio-Political fantasy drama
- By Adrian on 17-02-09
Some long winded passages serving no great purpose but a great ending to the saga
The female narrator was really irritating with daft intonation, consistent wrong emphases and different name pronunciations to the wonderful main narrator of the other books.
The whole saga generally very enjoyable.

This book is considered by many to be the finest literary biography ever published. Samuel Johnson was the leading literary scholar and critic of his age, helping to define the Augustan Age of English Literature. He is as celebrated for his brilliant conversation as he is for his writing.

well worth listening to!
In spite of the reader's robotic reading I have really enjoyed the whole 32 hours. I had failed to read very far into the books on two occasions but looked forward to each session of the audiobook. In fact I finally enjoyed the reading and smiled at the hopeless pronunciation of every British place name and the execrable French and Latin.
