really liked it

Whew. I have read just about all the Dune books: all by Frank Herbert and the majority of what his son, Brian, and Kevin Anderson have written.

Why the "whew"?

The book is dense with information. It is NOT the book any new reader of the Dune series should start with. While there is enough groundwork information into the various characters and "sects", it's still overwhelming at times. I would hate to think of someone coming in and then trying to "judge" the series on this book.

Better to start with "Dune" itself, then work out the timeline issues (not sure if that's been done yet; best practice order to read the books?) afterwards.

The short chapters made it a bit choppy to read, hop scotching around the various plots/storylines; this has been their template overall. Not my favorite style, which is what kept me from giving it five stars.
