    " The plot was engaging, but the prose was some of the most poorly-written tripe I had seen in my life. "

    " Finally done the first prequel written by Frank Herbert's son Brian and his collaborator Kevin J. Anderson (this one took me a while, lots of distractions...). I went into the book having read many reviews deriding it. The naysayers state that Brian is milking his father's legacy, destroying it in the process. They say the writing is subpar and there are many inconsistencies with the six Dune books that Frank wrote. Now, granted, Brian and Kevin have published about a dozen Dune prequel/sequel books since around 2000, twice the number that Frank wrote, and they show no signs of stopping. Do I feel that they are raping Frank's legacy? Not really. I don't doubt Brian's wish to continue his father's greatest opus in a faithful and well-thought-out manner. But sometimes his execution is a bit lacking. There are some inconsistencies to be found, and the writing is no where near the realm of his father's literary skill. But so far, I am enjoying the experience of reading the Brian/Kevin version of Dune. I consider the reading rather light, a stark contrast from the depth of the six original Dune books, which were quite a slog at times, but worth the effort. The new Dune books are sort of like space opera for the beach, in my opinion. Well, on to the next one... "

    " I have read this book and all of the Dune series more than once, each time gaining new insights as I read and as I simultaneously understand more about life on earth. These books read as though the story is down-loaded, 'channeled'. "

    " The beginning of the first prequel of Frank Herbert's Dune series. Learn WHY Jessica had a sin instead of the ordered daughter. Why Duncan and Gurney were Atreides men forever. "
