God Emperor of Dune
- By: Frank Herbert
- Narrated by: Simon Vance
- Length: 15 hrs and 48 mins
More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.
Way way too much pretentious philosophy

All round brilliance.
After a lackluckster second book, Frank Herbert set a new standard with the third and fourth in the series.
God Emperor was as thrilling and grand as the original Dune and the originality stands alone as a titan of sciencr fiction.
The narration was fantastic as always. Multiple actors, real emotion in the lines.
One of the best reads ever in my opinion.
Magicians of the Gods

- By: Graham Hancock

Graham Hancock's multimillion best seller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth's lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returns with the sequel to his seminal work filled with completely new scientific and archaeological evidence which has only recently come to light.
Do yourself a favour and read this!

Beautifully written and structured works from Graham Hancock. Graham describes the structures and landscapes with great detail, while keeping you engaged with the unedrlying thesis and ideas.
Make sure to find associating images of the places he visits through the book though, as you can get a little lost amongst these great ancient works without them.
