A worthy prequel to the best series of all time - Dune,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dune - House Harkonnen (Prelude to Dune) (Audio Cassette)
House Harkonnen follows on, surprisingly enough from House Atredies. Both books carry on almost continuously so this review can just as easily be given to the first by Frank Herberts son. The writing style is nice and consistent with the original series, which was, in my view, the greatest set of books i have ever had the pleasure of reading. The story lines are damned good, adding much more depth to the history of Dune and how Paul came to be as he was. But this is where it has recieved some critisism, some people say it can't be that good as you know where everything's going - you know who lives and who dies because of peoples positions in Dune. But the fact of the matter is that Brian Herbert keeps the plot interesting and twisting, while adding more depth to the Universe. - This is a damned good book. get the whole Dune series, but do start with the original, because these are written as though you've read the originals.
