Read this a long time ago and just came across it.

Would you listen to The Heaven Makers again? Why?

Yes, I love Herbert's older, non-Dune work, and it gets short shrift among the Dune fans.

What other book might you compare The Heaven Makers to and why?

Godmakers, Dosadi Experiment, any of Herbert's older work.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's a bit ponderous, but easy to listen to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not a particular one, just all-around.

Any additional comments?

Any Dune fans should check out this and Herbert's other old books. He has many universes that are worth a read or listen.

a Dune fix

I came across this book while searching for something, anything that would satisfy the high I'd become accustomed to while listening to every Dune book. this was sufficient. Creative, gripping and emotionally intelligent. If Dune is a 10, this work is a strong 7. that is a good thing!
