This book is entertaining, so I give it more than one star. It passed the time. I am an avid fan of the series, I've read every one in chronological order, some twice, up to this point, though some 40% in the book I am, quite frankly, so offput by inconsistent extended storyline flaws that I find it hard to continue. In fact I don't think I have ever actually written a review of anything on Amazon until now, it bothered me that much. Unlike Frank Herbert's writings, the style is shallow and not nearly as intellectual and thought provoking. But again, it is at least entreaties, and given my dedication to the original and extended series I feel compelled to continue. I admit it may be premature to post only 40% into the book, but there are deep rooted facts according to the prior novels that are not readily disputed by any excuse that may be given further in.
Come on, B-Herb and KJ! I'm supremely disappointed.
