At the end of a review posted back on November 15 (Did KJA cum over himself about this one on Twitter? Or as usual did he just ignore another ambivalent review?), after basically recapping the cover blurb, Kirkus Reviews writes
Characters and plot are thus beautifully set up, the timing is precise; alas that the prose drones in the usual flat, affectless manner, while the characters for the most part lack personality and distinction.
McDune, sure, but the universe conceived by Frank Herbert is so vast, complex and fascinating that the magic lingers, and even Herbert-Anderson detractors will be hard put to resist the allure.
Please. It’s shit. Even you just used “McDune” to describe it!
This crap has nothing to do with Frank Herbert’s work. The only thing DUNE about this is the word appearing on the title.Tweet
