    A great sequel to Dune. I was not expecting a better read than Dune but I believe that it was. This is a much shorter novel when compared to Dune and that length fits the book well since most of the background was already set in the longer novel, Dune. You won't be disappointed as the story continues ... and obviously, you must have already read Dune to fully understand the nuances suggested in this book.

    I was not expecting to like this book. Unlike everyone else, I did not like Dune. I felt the characters were rushed in the first book. I thought this book was very interesting as a character study. Herbert spent much less time developing the story line and much more time expounding on the characters. Put together the story felt complete.

    Difficult book to get through. Very week plot--nothing exciting happens. Mostly consists of dialogue between characters.
