As an avid fan of the Dune universe and Frank Herbert, I understand the chagrin that many of the other readers express. I might even admit to flirting with that very state. Personally I've always thought Herbert had a way of rushing through endings so it comes as no surprise that GE fits the trend. I still however found this book to be just as insightful, entertaining and philosophical as the prior. Stepping into the mind of a thirty five hundred year old being is a fascinating perspective, a perspective that was certainly difficult to channel for the author. Fans of Dune, drink up and enjoy. Everyone else, go walk through the desert first.

About the author (2008)

Frank Herbert was born in Tacoma, Washington, and studied at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide-variety of jobs--including newspaper reporter and editor, political speechwriter, university professor, TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, and creative writing teacher--before becoming a full-time writer. His first sf story was published in 1952 but he achieved fame more than ten years later with the publication in "Analog" of "Dune World" and "The Prophet of Dune" that were amalgamated in the novel Dune in 1965.
