Publisher's Summary

With their usual skill, Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have taken ideas left behind by Frank Herbert and filled them with living characters and a true sense of wonder. Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of Dune, The Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah. Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam is dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan is imprisoned. Paul's former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides. Herbert and Anderson's newest book in this landmark series will concentrate on these characters as well the growing battle between Jessica and her daughter, Alia.

good, but with reservations

I have listened to most of the other Dune books and I have enjoyed them immensely. I bought this book hoping it would be just as good., but was a little disappointed. It still was a good book, but it seemed a little contrived. I felt this book tried to fill in some of the history that was left to the readers imagination. It changed my conception of Paul Atreides from being a horrible despot to a do-gooder just stuck in a bad situation. The fun of reading is to use your imagination and I felt my own interpretation of what happened was more realistic than this book portrays. The book still had all the excitement and adventure of the other books and I did enjoy it.

Great Book, Great Writers - The Worst Narrator

I have stopped downloading any books narrated by Scott Brick. I would rather read the hard copies than suffer though his stilted and affected version of reading. He seems to have a big following which is not shared by all the reviewers on Audible. His inflections and tonal qualities are very repetitive and annoying, seems to end most sentences with explanation points and is more concerned about the importance of his voice than the actual story line or characters in the stories. Many great authors and stories on Audible have been ruined by having Scott Brick narrate them.
