Abomination. The Preacher. The Golden Path- humanity herded through a tunnel vision for survival. Herbert turns Dune on it's head, and like a tornado, wherever it touches down there is chaos. The Dune History and pre-history - from Dune to Sisterhood of Dune - is not one to be missed.

The Abomination. The Preacher. The Golden Path. F. Herbert created a masterpiece of Sci-Fi by turning Dune on it's head with an apparent downward spiral that, like a tornado, wherever it touches, there is treachery and mayhem. The best laid plans of Maud'Dib oft go astray.

I haven't read this book for a long time, but it is one that I consider a keeper, along with Dune, Dune Messiah and God Emperor of Dune. Frank Herbert's universe is one that I revisit and enjoy over and over.

Sometimes things are explained to death, sometimes not enough to avoid the reader inserting their own best guess. Despite those quibbles Herbert's Dune universe is still one of the most fascinating places in Science Fiction.

A pivotal book in the Dune Chronicles, and a must read for any science fiction fans. The future the Frank Herbert portrays is amazing; with plots within plots, engrossing characters, and giant sandworms! What more do you need.

A fine wrap up to the initial trilogy of Dune books as well as an introduction to the next great cycle that turns our attention Duncan now becoming one of the central characters rather than an incidental throwaway.

Frank Herbert out did himself in the continuing Saga of the rise and fall of events in the development of the Dune world. He hold's true to the story of a royal line developed by a secret society of women to lead a planet and protect it from the space conglomerates who want to mine it of its spice resource and destroy it in the process.

If you're never read any of the Dune series, this is the second book, and it's absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone who loves Sci-Fi, political intrigue and elaborate universes.
