it was amazing

Books 5 and 6 are a complete departure from the preceding novels, even more so than 4 was to 3. If you've read 2, 3 and 4, you know that's a good thing :).

The style is significantly different and they are set so far in the future that none of the characters and only echoes of the universe persist. Sadly, Chapterhouse: Dune was the last book Frank Herbert completed before his death leaving us with something of a cliffhanger. Despite the temptation, do not, ever, ever try the books written by his son and Kevin J Anderson. Despite their claims, I have a hard time believing anything about them came from mysteriously found "notes". Besides which they are just horribly written.

Alpha Frank Herbert is by far my favorite author... if you ever want to read some of his other works, I've got a pretty good selection at my place.
