The racial strife is harvest from the seeds she and her husband sowed.
Care to elaborate on that? Not necessarily disagree, because that would be acting stupidly, but I'd like to see what your thoughts are.
Have you read the stuff written by Herbert’s son and Kevin Anderson? I came to like some of those better than the original Dune books. Dune was great. Dune Messiah was okay, but by the time you got to Children and God Emperor, it was all downhill. But the Butlerian Jihad and The Machine Crusade were decent reads and laid a nice foundation for Dune.
No, I haven't. I really got fed up with the Dune sequels. The whole messianic stuff grated on me and I gave up (though I don't remember on which book).
If the prequels are good, I might give them a shot.
What I loved about "Dune" was the world-building - a whole society and universe totally invented, unlike anything I'd read before. I should explore those.
looks great. i need to get my D80 out again and play with it.
Wife not home?......
I was thinking something along those lines, but your comment nailed it.
Levin's radio show is a screech fest. His show on Fox is more Buckley-esque.
Funny you should say.
Many years ago, I made the mistake of tuning into Hannity's radio show.
Ho. Lee. Carp.
It was disgusting. He was dismissive, insulting and obnoxious (I know it's hard to believe that).
His TV show is, well, not as much of those three.
But, as was mentioned on TOCR, you have to remember that these guys are, first of all, entertainers.
That said, I might enjoy his talk with the AG.
Ok, through book 2 it was much better. Book 3 is off to a good start.
Thanks for the update.
I'm about halfway through my re-read of "Dune" and, frankly, I'm finding it a bit tiresome. Perhaps it's because I'm already familiar with the characters, the "Dune Universe" etc. I found that all so amazing back in 1980 (or so). Now, not so much.
Thinking about giving up on it.
Remember when Flynn should be disqualified because he was a liar?
Good times, good times!
