WHEN THINGS DON'T FIT, THERE ARE MISSING PIECES
I like Dune and The Heaven Makers. I was hoping since this was a shorter work, that it might be similar to The Heaven Makers, but it was not. NOTHING IS TRULY SIMPLE. Even though lots of big words are used, lots of descriptive language, the story and the characters are not engaging. It seemed at first that this was going to be Herbert's Hari Seldon, than we got this Psi stuff. This was not for me.
THE GALAXY MEDAL
Brick did a fine job.
YOU HAVEN'T EXPLAINED ANYTING, WORDS, JUST WORDS.

Herbert wraps this one up with some pretty open ended questions. I was hoping to get more into his interpretation of the day-to-day of a god, but the ride there was fun all the same.

How could the performance have been better?
The narrator sounded like he had taken sleeping tablets
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I read this book back in the seventies, at the time I thought it was really good. I don't know if it was the narration or that it has dated badly but I found it dreary. It is slightly misogynistic with some of the feel of his later Dune novels but none of the wonder. nothing much happens.
