This is a long epilogue & conclusion to Paul's story. It can feel anticlimactic if the events of dune are not fresh in your memory.
But the book is very satisfying for a dune fan as it gives an unusual "happily ever after" who wonders what happened after the events of dune.
I read the first Dune book and I can 100% recommend it in a heartbeat. The first Dune book is a masterpiece.
I bought this to continue the saga.
- The product was well packaged and came undamaged. No corners were bent and no scratches on the book were present.
- Quick delivery as usual.
- The cover of the book is beautiful and has a matte finish and is thick enough to not turn into dust while reading it.
- Print quality and font size is decent.
- Book is almost 60% the size of the first book in the series by same publisher.
- Price was very good at ₹560.
- Bought from Bookswagon.
Overall: Easily recommended to buy from Bookswagon or any other seller here. Just look at the seller reviews before you buy.

In this book our main protagonist can see the future, he spends the entire book refusing to do anything at all (apart from be sad about what is going to happen) because he can see that doing something to protect himself from the bad stuff that is coming will make it worse. No explanation (other than "he can see the future") is ever offered for why acting in his own defence would make things worse. We spent the entire book waiting for the thing every character knows is coming to happen (but of course the audience is left in the dark about what is comming). Then not much happens.
If you liked "Dune" then show it the respect it deserves, by never touching this horrid sequel.
I’m giving this only 3 stars because of this particular edition - FAR too many typos! At one point I was coming across one on every page. Totally distracting and takes you out of the flow. Missing full stops, “Iruian”, “Lannerjee”, “kwlsatz haderach”... pretty appalling for a book that’s been around for decades and read by millions.
However I have to further rate it down due to the number of typos and grammatical errors in the 2017 Hodder & Stoughton publication edition that I received. Every 3/4 pages there is a misspelling, punctuation missing, etc. These would normally be only a small gripe, but due to the frequency which they occur they started taking me out of the story as I couldnt help but notice them. For such a large publishing company such as Hodder, this is really not good enough.
