Tough one to listen to

I listen to Audible on my drive to work so I can't always give my full concentration to the book. When I finished this book I was upset that nothing had really happened. It was only once I went online to complain about it that I realised it had a rich yet subtle story.

Frank Herbert had a drawn out way of writing that can be hard to listen to, couple that with the monotonous voice acting (which isn't necessarily bad, it fits the tone and style). Unless you scored 'above average' in those listening comprehension tests in school, I wouldn't recommend listening to this one but maybe worth reading in a book form if you've come this far and want to see the Bene Gesserit deal with these no good Honored Matres.

Unchallenged Series Finale

Have read this book many times along with the rest of the Dune Series. First time listen on the audio format and all of the books were great. Could have done with out the female narrator of Chapterhouse however. She needs some serious work on tonality and timing. Other than that small irritation all was splendid!

Great Story! Horrible way to compile a narration.

I love the story. I been reading all the dune series that Frank Herbert wrote and been doing the audio books too. The worst narration was Dune Messiah. This narration has the same problems as Dune Messiah. Instead of using differ narrators for differ characters they just had them all narrate random chapters. Like they are all practicing narrating and not taking this one seriously. A message to whoever produces this audio book: We do not want random narrations that are disjointed. We want a male narrator doing male voices and a female one doing the female voices. Quit messing up our audio books. These narrators are great but who ever produced this is dumb as all can be.

Compelling Socio-Political fantasy drama

Dune was a magnificent book; but it pales in comparison with the final two books in the Frank Herbert timeline - Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse Dune.

These two books stand together and follow on one from the other. The story focuses around the struggle of the Bene Gesserit (post Dune), the race to establish a supply of melange and a new threat that has merged from the scattering.

The best part about these books is the ingenious social insight that Frank Herbert displayed as he explored principles of power, control, and minority rule. He teaches through the story also - principles of a supply and demand economy, different political and social structures, ecology....

The Saga could not have finished in a finer way. The Author's family should be very proud of this accomplishment because it is far more than a compelling story.

Worth a revisit

Having read the Dune series years ago I wanted to re-visit my favorite book, Chapterhouse. This installment focuses on the Bene Gesserit with all their political scheming. The multiple narrators really helps make this audio book version come to life. Overall I was not disappointed.
