Paul of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

Paul of Dune

Furthering my ambition to finally complete all the books in the Dune series (I only have a couple left! Woo hoo!), this last week I read Paul of Dune.  In this novel, Herbert and Anderson explain what happens between the elder Herbert’s Dune and Dune Messiah, jumping back and forth between the pre-emperor Paul and post-emperor Paul.

I have to admit that the first half of the book dragged on a bit for me.  The post-emperor storyline didn’t get interesting until later, but still, it felt like sitting down with an old friend.  Which, of course, is a happy feeling.  The pre-emperor storyline was excellent and I wish the whole book had just centered on that.  Given the number of prequels and pre-prequels, it wouldn’t surprise me if the dynamic duo attempt that in the future.
