The Winds of Dune was great book that adds to the tapestry of the Dune Universe. When Frank Herbert wrote the original (and still classic) series, he left a good many years uncharted during the course of the series. This new set of books (starting with Paul of Dune) does a good job of filling in some unanswered questions. I enjoyed the flashback scenes in this book quite a bit. Frank Herbert, undeniably a master storyteller, could sometimes be a little dry in his writing. Herbert and Anderson do a good job at making the narrative a little more approachable. The writing was crisp and it flowed well. Starting from Jessica learning of her son's death and dealing with Alia's learning how to run an Empire, this book moves swiftly from start to finish. There were quite a few parts where I couldn't put this book down. The least interesting character in this book was Irulan. But then, she never was one of my favorite characters. She's never really felt well-rounded to me. She still doesn't in this book. All in all, I enjoyed this book (and the previous book in the trilogy) and would highly recommend it to other sci-fi fans.

Help him to destroy me. Was there a big gap of time between Dune Messiah & Children of Dune? I don’t know, I read those a long time ago and I’m too tired to do the research now (I have to work tomorrow, stop yelling at me!). What I do know for sure is that these interstitial books do a great job of tying together the new prequels with Frank Herbert’s original books. It’s all coming together into one giant maelstrom of epic awesomeness that I love so much. If these books ever stop coming out, which I hope they don’t, I would love to read this whole series from beginning to end in the correct order (If someone, who is not me, can figure out precisely what that order is). It’s really astounding that the author’s can keep this much stuff in their heads, they must have one heck of a bulletin board! So if you want to do this right, read this book right after Dune Messiah, followed by Children of Dune. I think. Unless more books come out. You know what? Just enjoy it, every one of these is great.

This was a good read. Didn't like having to read a section, read another book of the series, go back to the next section in the book....just to read the series in chronological order. However, i really enjoyed this book!
