MonieG doesn't mind the editorial inconsistencies she finds within this newest installment to the Dune series, Paul of Dune:
In Dune, Paul is certain that his actions are correct and in Paul of Dune he begins to wonder. The book is very informative in that it gives us more information on his family and his interactions with some of the main characters. It provides more information than the other books because their storylines weren’t set up to give is the in-depth background like this book.
Anybody who has read all fourteen of the other books will see some discrepancies such as Paul’s mother Jessica not previously knowing who her father was and in Paul of Dune she does but the discrepancies are easily overlooked for a true Dune fan.
The authors wrote the story in such a way that I can easily imagine the scenery, the heat, the movement of the sand and the cinnamon spice smell of mélange. It’s all brought to life for readers making the characters seem that much more real. The story runs very smoothly and I recommend it for all sci-fi readers.
