1.0 out of 5 stars A bad ending to an amazing career - avoid, 24 Sept. 2015
Unfortunately a really poor book. It's a re-write of an earlier book (Lords and Ladies), without any of the skill or cleverness that usually goes into a good Pratchett novel. Sadly its clear that this wasn't finished before Terry passed away, and is full of unfinished plotlines, repeated jokes from earlier books and familiar characters written badly. It's a shame this was his final book, but if you want to reaad the good version I would avoid this and just re-read Lords and Ladies. They even have similar speeches in them...

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly superb, 7 Feb. 2009
Just arrived today. Superb packaging, far larger than I expected and far superior to most special edition sound tracks. The extra CD also contains some of the key signature pieces from the film - if you want to enjoy the full soundtrack, this is the definitive version you have to buy. Excellent quality and well worth buying to any fan, or as a gift to someone who enjoyed the films music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 30 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Hunters of Dune (Paperback)
A truly awful book. For those who loved Dune, don't even attempt to read this, as it will just leave you wishing you hadn't.

The writing style is weak, and far from the excellent prose that Herbert used in the original 6 Dune novels. The storyline meanders throughout the entire book but nothing is actually accomplished, other than the authors managing to tie the poor "prequel" novels into the cumulation of the Dune series. The characters act nonsensically, and all the delicate balance of power and logic that made Dune brilliant is gone, leaving a cast of characters who blindly lash out and act seemingly without purpose or reason, with holes so large in their reasoning you could pilot a guild liner through it. Avoid this book, avoid the prequels, and buy the Enclycopedia off Amazon second hand.
