Product Description

Book Description

From the author of Dune, the greatest SF novel of all time, comes a stunning evocation of alien cultures. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Frank Herbert (1920-86) was born in Tacoma, Washington and worked as a reporter and later editor of a number of West Coast newspapers 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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While Dune remains an undisputedly epic masterpiece in its entirety this relatively small book condenses into its pages all the same intrigue and complexity of a devious society seen though the eyes of, importantly, believable individuals.
Where Dune has its massive scope Dosadi has intense focus, the whole "universe" in this story is compressed into one immense city wherein live billions of individuals. Plot within plot within plot is revealed as the story pursues the results of the pressures of this environment.
As I am saying on all my reviews of these re-releases of Herbert's work - its about time! And if you can't wait there have been copies in second hand stores for the last decade just waiting for you to buy them!

Format: Paperback
An experiment on how to control emotions and consciousness ... but it blows up in the faces of those who began it. It's about "awareness", about how we learn to know things. the hero, McKai from Whipping Star, is sent to Dosadi to ensure it does what the experimenters want. But there he meets Jedrick, a fascinating and totally focused woman who is about to save the people. she does this by learning how to think ... this is so much more than one would believe. It's frightening. It's quite possible. It's wonderful. The ending is tearing to the heart and soul and yet completely wonderful. If only humans were like this!

I loved this. Its years since I read the book and it was like meeting an old friend. The aphorisms are not as good as in the Dune series but the story is nicely paced and has many of the themes that appear in his other tales - hellstroms hive and the santaroga barrier - but here the hero is the investigator instead of the investigated

I struggled at first but thought, wait a minute this is Mr Herbert...let's see where this is going. It's good, really good. Just finished a second reading, it gets better. Very deep for quite a short book by Mr Herbert's standard. Highly recommended and if you can get a copy of Whipping Star as well that's good for some background on the main character and the Caleban.

If you have never read a Frank Herbert book before, this is where I would start. Yes, it is the sequel to his Whipping Star, but to be honest it won't detract from reading Dosadi if you haven't read it.

What you have in The Dosadi Experiment is a concentration in a relatively small book of all the things I like about Frank Herbert books - politics, intrigue, philosophising, and an exploration of how people reaction in extreme circumstances. On top of that, the Gowachin and the city of Chu itself are wonderful creations.

A previous review had as his title "Better than Dune?" I wouldn't bother with the question mark. It really is an excellent book. The only 2 criticisms I would have for this is that the ending is a bit rushed, and I wish he had done a sequel. There are just so many things that could have been explored further, both on Dosadi and in the wider ConSentiency.

That said, if Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson read this and are thinking about doing a sequel - DONT!!!
