“I stopped reading the books after this one. I loved the first book DUNE, and they went down hill from there. I really enjoyed the first book and as I read each book there after i kept thinking they would improve, but never did.

“It eventually became a grudge match between me and the late Frank Herbert to finish this series that started off so well. WTF happened?

“This is one of the best series I've ever read. This is the last book by Frank Herbert. I am looking forward to Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune by Brian Herbert & Kevin Anderson.”FB wrote this review Friday, March 25, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“O carte exceptionala. Frank Herbert lasa prin acest sfarsit glorios al seriei Dune o poarta larg deschisa imaginatiei.
Evolutia umana, supravietuirea, puterea mintii, societatea, politica, rolul istoriei, puterea cuvintelor, reactiile umane, dragostea, necunoscutul, libertatea sunt doar cateva din temele abordate.
...o analiza profunda a naturi umane...

“3rd favorite Dune book. (Ged Emperor being 1st, and the original Dune being 2nd). Such a cliffhanger ending! Wish you could have lived to write the last two that your son, and Brain Anderson butchered, Frank!”Maurice A wrote this review Saturday, December 4, 2010.
