    " A satisfying end to the Dune saga. I'm not sure I want to continue with the series as written by the son. For me the zenith of the series was God Emperor of Dune, the pivotal book the first two build up to and the events that are reconciled by it in the future millennia in the last two books of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremiah Depta | 1/25/2014

    " DUNE levels off at this point, continuing to be interesting, but not nearly as mind-blowing as the original. A quality read, but not a must. "

    " While I didn't like it as much as Heretics, I really enjoyed reading Chapterhouse. It's sad to finish the series, but it's nice that it ended with so much potential. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 1/4/2014

    " The DUNE series was good albeit strange in places. The ideas relating to destiny and the messiah theme are all quite intriguing as well as the social implications of various forms of slavery and bondage. "

    " If you like science fiction, these books are great. However, for my personal preferences, the further you proceed into the Dune Chronicles, the stranger and more detached I felt from the actual story. It was almost too wierd to read, which is saying something you know me well. :) "

    " This book felt like it was covering the same ground again without moving forward. Sadly the author died and did not write the final book in the series. His son recently did write that book based on his fathers notes, but I haven't read it yet. I'll review it when I do. "
