It took me a bit longer to get into this book than the two previous. Once I got to know the twins better however, I quickly found myself completely engrosed once more.

The original Dune is of course a really tough book to match. And while I'm not sure this story does hold up to the original, that is not to say this book is not good. It does feel a bit more pretentious though and some of the "smartness" of the series is getting old. The end really made it for me though, so four stars. I'm already looking forward to reading it again! ( )

Much better than the preceding and following books in the series. Almost as good as Dune itself. ( )

I'm still amazed that it took me this long to read this book (series).
I still feel that this book has a lot of what I fell for when I first read Dune...it's got that mysticism mixed with sci-fi mixed with human nature that I can not stop reading! The turns that this book took I can not say were completely unexpected but there were a few that I either did not understand at first or were just outside my scope. ( )
