of Dune, well this book the first in a series attempts to answer some of the unanswered questions. Good all round story but a little slow in
places but good story all round! This book concentrates on the imperial house of Atredies the other two on the other two houses Corrino & Harkonnen! Have yet to read the others hope they live up to what is expected!
Back when I was a callow youth I picked up a (second hand) copy of Dune and gave up after the first few chapters.
Only many years later, when I was more mature as a reader did I pick it up and read it.
I was mightily impressed Frank Herbert had succeeded in creating his own Universe and a wonderful planet – Dune.
I then tried the sequels and after the 3rd stopped dead.
Recently I picked up one of Brian Herberts and Kevin J Andersons
House Atreides (Prelude to Dune) .
It was like discovering an old friend.
The story set 40 odd years before the events of Dune explains and expands the Dune Universe.
The book is entertaining and well.. readable much lighter than Brian’s Father Herbert but none the less vey much still intelligent and deep for it to be a satisfying story.
And my what a story it is.
The chapters flow from Kaitain and the aging Emperor of the known universe and the Crown Prince, to GeidiPrime with Vladimir Harkonnen still young, fit and virile (for same sex) for the moment to Ix the planet of the machines and Caladan the water world of the Atreides.
Then there is Arakis- Dune with the Emperor’s Planetologist supreme Pardot Kines.
Against that is the backdrop of the Spacing Guild, the witches of the Bene Gesirate and the machinations of the Imperium.
All in all a wonderful book.
Well done Messrs Herbert and Anderson.
A Totally Perfect Prelude to Dune.
