Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Children of Dune Children of Dune is the third book of a series containing six novels. The first book was simply excellent. The second book was much shorter and less interesting. Fortunately, the third book regained my interest. I found it to be fast-paced and easy to read. Too many separate threads made understanding what was happening complex at times though. I do NOT recommend the Children of Dune televised mini-serie. It is a pale comparison to the wonders of the book.
