Words can't describe the shock and impact of this book. I've been left speechless. It's a remarkable piece of work.

If only half of this recollection is true ( keeping in mind large portions of this book are public domain) then it's just truely terrifying. I want to feel embarrassed for proud Americans who must be horrified of their predicament until I realise that the implications of Mr Trumps presidency are global.

For an Australian observing the machinations of the US political environment, this was a refreshing and hopeful tale. I enjoyed the anecdotes, and for their sake hope that politicians of Frankens ilk rise up from 'the swamp' created over the last 9 months. Great work Al.

Please put me out of my misery.

Dune is a remarkable epic that sits at the epicenter of the genre. As an audiobook however...this is a shambles. Its as if the budget was expended on the atmospheric sounds effects and background music and with the funds running low the studio just randomly selected bits for the voice actors while the rest was read by the narrator. Not only is it confusing....its at times hilarious. In single scenes you can have three different voices for one character ( remembering Herbert's love of the third person or thoughts of his characters)...hilariously these innermost thoughts can be a totally different actor, voice....god even accent. there are times the primary narrator just seems to forget what voice he uses for a character....you are absolutely lost. watch out for his attempt at Chani when she first appears... How can I liken this experience? Have you ever tried to make an omelette while suffering with a hangover...... with each egg you crack, shell ends up in the bowl...no matter how much you try it just gets worse with the end result being a complete and total yoke ( egg humour)...I digress.... back to analogy... so finally after cooking the omelette you sit down ready to tuck in before throwing up last night's curry with a good helping of vodka flavoured bile. That's the feeling I had as the book ended.

for lovers of politics and the Westminster system. great characters and a blend of fact and time line fiction. even better with the gift and knowledge history gives.
