Read in September, 2009

As many other reviewers have said, this book is a departure in style from the earlier books in the series. While I had sympathy for many of the main characters in the book, I found the esoteric philosophical dialogue (which dominates most of the book) tedious and too often impenetrable. I got bogged down trying to understand Herbert's musings, some of which I think may not be understandable.

Aside from the well-drawn characters, I was interested by some of the big themes Herbert explores, but the highlights were overshadowed by the mind-numbing abstract philosophy that made up the bulk of this book.
