Children of Dune by Frank Herbert(46 ratings)
|Title||Children of Dune|

Hi. I am reading "Dune" and have read "Children of Dune", and I must say I think these are some among the best books of the past century. Truly I cannot understand how the critical reviews about Herbert's saga of Dune say that "he is not a prose stylist". I think Herbert's prose is one of the most refined proses we could encounter (not merely in the genre of SCI-FI). Herbert has created by nothing a whole world and I may say that reading his novels I've "seen" it, the sceneries, the monsters, the characters, and, last but not least, the "inner thought" of the characters. Reading Herbert is being on Dune - not as ourselves, but as the main characters. And it's a unique, wondrous experience. Dune's saga is one of the greatest literary works that literature has ever seen.

Herbert develops the personalities and unique gifts of the children of Paul Atredies (Muad'Dib). Then he spins another of the best science fantasy stories the world has ever seen - AGAIN!
