I'm not sure if manatees bouncing beach balls with words on them helped write this piece of shit or not but man oh man, I'm so sorry for all the people who confuse this shit with anything that remotely resembles Pere Herbert's work.
Frank Herbert took more than half a decade to write Dune and construct the themes that would permeate throughout the 5 other novels. And it took him 2 decades to do those full 6 books.
The mere fact that a new piece of shit has been churned out like clockwork every Autumn is the indicator that there is no real love or skill involved in the production of any of these.It is poorly written Harlequin Romance science fiction, though saying that is probably an insult to Harlequin Romances.
And now... fans of the originals get bitch slapped with the corporate joke that is "I found my father's notes for Dune 7 hidden away in a safe deposit box".
My other favorite quote has been along the lines of "Dune 7 was a story so massive we had to write all this other material and then make Dune 7 two books itself to contain the awesomeness". Can you see the corn in my vomit?
If this novel was this awful... I can only imagine what the no doubt Type 9 Sandworms of Dune is like.
When I registered Secher Nbiw so many years ago I never realized the apocalypse I mentioned was actually the writings of Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.
