    Inhaltsangabe

    The sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered, and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy. Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides's twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions - but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens.

    The author has issues part 3 (spoiler-free)

    Part three of my reviews of the Dune books.

    Story and worldbuilding wise this is an amazing space opera. BUT and it's a big but, the book is very, very dated and the author obviously had questionable to straight-up horrible views on girls, women, women's sexuality, lgbtq+ and more. For anyone who is considering this I will from the bottom of my heart recommend to watch the first movie instead and never touch the books.

    Once again, the plot and story on their own are great. Yes, it gets a bit dull here and there and sometimes the politics stretch too long but overall, very intriguing worldbuilding and great ideas. But that's really where my praise stops.

    This book really made me age ten years in the two-day span that I speed-ran it, I have no words. My expectations were already low after the first two and I already had my ears ringing of so much casual pedophilia vibes and blatant sexism that I really didn't think I'd have to add incest vibes to that list? But heavens, there it was. I don't even know what to say anymore. This book was a difficult read/listen from start to finish and I will never be coming back. All cherishable worldbuilding aside, this book was horrendous. As a woman and also a queer woman I really died a little inside at some of the scenes.

    The whole last arc of the book is super strange and I didn't even enjoy it plot-wise but it's hard to emphasize with anyone when the next person is even worse than the last. I had no one to root for even slightly and I feel like many events from the past two books are brushed over as if they are not as great a deal. Characters that I never wanted to see or hear from again return and the every scene from the perspective of a girl or woman just has the painful touch of a man-writing-women feel to it,

    No, thanks. If they ever adapt this into amovie, please leave out like 60% of the book, thanks.

    Joy & intrigue

    Love it! I know the story, that made it somehow more engaging for me. So grateful that this audio version is available and part of my library :)

    not great

    almost unreadable garbage. story doesn't make any sense. herbert simply ignores all the rules of good writing. there are some interesting ideas in there that could have made a much better story, much like the star wars Prequels.
