Summary
Frank Herbert's bestselling science fiction series of all time continues! In this third installment, the sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy. Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides's twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions-but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens...

I'd forgotten how self-important this series had gotten. When Mr. Herbert actually buckles down to a plot it gets interesting but, unfortunately, most of the time the "story" is a blather of puffed up, pseudo religios cant. I gave it four stars because the narration was WONDERFUL. Simon Vance, et al, made this palatable.

Excellent narration of a complex and compelling story.

Interesting book. Felt the ending left some thing to be desired but good overall.

I need to listen to this more than once to fully grasp its intricacy. I enjoyed it very much.

Narrator's voice for female characters is so incredibly awful and annoying. In fact, pretty much all his "character" voices are terrible. Why can't he just read the story?

This book is the story of Paul Atredes children. it starts out slow as the author is getting into the characters but ends up being a good, entertaining story. Got me threw work :D

Picture the scene - jostled right and left by fellow commuters in the morning rush on the Metro - my mind is soaring with the story - the commute disappointingly short... The narration is inciteful - intonation brings you into the characters as the plot unfolds. I have read this story in print, and while I do not particularly embrace the pseudo-religious claptrap - it is an integral part of the whole Dune experience. I get more each time I revisit this series.

I thought that book 2 (Dune Messiah) was a little slow, but was blown away by this one. If you enjoyed "Dune", then this one is a must. It ties everything together and will keep you going to the end of the series.
