There are so many type-O's in this eBook that I lost count before I was half-way through. Here are two examples: (page 407) "We week to raise humanity above its past heights." (page 452) "Movius felt every sense in his body come was a trap!" Phrases like this leave the reader wondering what the author meant to say and disrupt the flow of the narrative. It appears that the publisher rushed an unpolished manuscript to market with no more editing than a run through the spell-checker. This eBook doesn't do justice to Frank Herbert's legacy. I hope the publisher will recall it for revision.

I find it difficult to believe that the elder Herbert actually wrote this or, if he did, that he meant it as anything other than a leisurely project for his own enjoyment. The premise itself is unbelievable (what, we're going to be given jobs based on how we fare in the good old Gallup?), the characters cardboard, and the plot boring, plodding, and basically unreadable. Do not try to read it; if you like Herbert, check out the Void series or, better yet, the original Dune Chronicles.

Not meant to be a review, but a comment from the publisher in response to the previous reviewer. He read an early edition of the book, which has now been proofed and corrected by seven other proofers. While no book can be perfect, we believe we have taken care of  the typos.
