This book was so forgettable that I kept finding myself drifting off while literally in the middle of it. It’s certainly not on the same level as Dune, although it does at least include a few different ideas in here, as well as stuff like forbidden love between races.

The characterisation was good and so was the worldbuilding, but the plot left a lot to be desired and as far as enjoyment and “stickability” goes, it was pretty unimpressive. It had the potential to be a great little read but ended up just being one of those that I struggled through so that I could say I got to the end. Interesting to learn a little bit more about Herbert through his writing, though.
