Popular fiction yes, Dune Novel NO
All I can ask is where did it all go wrong? This book devotes so much of its effort on plots that just lead nowhere. For instance, the introduction and killing of victor by his mother, what a bad sub-plot that had no real place in this novel, also the deaths of the entire former ixion leaders was dry. Also there was too much lack of action by the emperor and the houses in responce to the repeated 'violations'. for some unknown reasone the authors spend so much time trying to spin indivdual stories together when they shouldn't be involved with eachother. there are prehaps 50 to a hundered pages of actual importance in this 600 page book, the rest is just filler. It is sad to say but this book doesn't deserve its title, or to be part of a the Dune Saga in any shape or form. The whole book has a feel of a rush job, and from reading interviews I get the impression that they finished their third book already, probably even more of a rush. WHEN WILL AUTHORS RELIZE THAT READERS WOULD RATHER WAIT 5 YEARS PER SEQUAL THEN READ 5 BOOKS IN 3 years.

The first 100 pages were great, the net 50 were OK and the ret was just bad. This book takes place in the year 10,168 AG, and follows the three main houses. What was so bad about this book that it just seemed unnecicary, (729 pages?) After a while I stopped cring and fell asleep and woke up in tim or the credits. The Pardot Kynes parts are as boring as crap, Shaddam IV has grown dull, and i could care less about the Amal. This is getting worse. -D 70%Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
