Classic Frank Herbert , Truly amazing reading.
on 17 May 2000
I have recently finished reading Whipping Star by Frank Herbert and like ninety percent of his works it was amazing! The depth of characters ( McKie, Bildoon, Cheo and Mliss Abnethe) can only be compared with the amazing quality with which Mr Herbert crafted Dune and its sequels. The story itself is set around the mysterious Calebans, a race which little is known about. When one of there spacecraft/homes crash lands, Busab's ( Bureau of Sabotage) finest agent is dispatched to the scene, what he finds out could end almost all sentient life. I wish that there were more writers of Mr Herberts quality, Intellect and imagination - His works are a piece of art , he is dearly missed. Not only do i recommend this Frank Herbert novel but all Frank Herbert novels.
