Maybe this earth should be deleted

The premise was original and had a lot of promise. Even the story itself was quite engaging. I thought that the writing had a good flow and the style and narration was great.

Unfortunately, not a single character in the book is even remotely likable. They're not even deeply flawed enough to be interesting as character studies. They're just superficial, self-centered and mildly sociopathic. I thought that there would be some deep self-discovery leading to transformations, but that never came.

Good writing should invoke something in the reader and, in that, this was successful. However, I'm just not sure that deep apathy towards the characters was what the author was going for.

Could have been so much better

What would have made Man of Two Worlds better?

If it had been slightly tighter, faster paced. With warmer more accessible characters.


Would you ever listen to anything by Frank Herbert and Brian Herbert again?

Yes I love Frank Herbert


Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Mr. Brick is the voice of Herbert for me
