This series is much more philosophical and full of social/political commentary than I was expecting. In fairness, I don't know exactly what I was expecting; I read Dune because it was a science fiction classic - not knowing much more about it than that.

The author has clearly thought a lot about what he wants to say by means of his storytelling.

This is the only sequel to Dune (which I still think is one of the greatest books ever written, no hyperbole,) that I actually like.

A profound thinking book in my opinion. I was hesitant at first to read it after reading a few reviews back in the early 2000s. But, after reading several synopsis highlighting interesting events in the book, I know I have to give it a try. Now, I'm very surprised by so many things happening in the book that I'm glad I've read this book. If you're looking for an action/adventure book, this may not be right for you. But, if you are looking for a book that makes you think about many things, then you should try to read this book.

My personal favorite of the Dune sequels. Leto has ruled the entire universe for a few thousand years, just after merging with the sandworms to become a massive half-worm, half-man hybrid. Now that he's built a galactic empire and a religion around himself, he's trying to wind things down. It's probably weirder than it sounds. Good times.

Leto has become the Great Sand Worm -- and is ruling the Universe. He is all knowing and all seeing.
We all know what Absolute power gets...

Great continuing story to the original Trilogy
I count them more as a complete story of 6 books.
