The new books by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson are nowhere near as good as the original six by Frank Herbert. Naturally, they're a completely different style, but they're also much simpler and less interesting.

That said, they can still provide some entertainment. If you've read any of the others, you'll probably enjoy this as much or as little as you enjoyed those. If you haven't, then note that these stories are much simpler and less nuanced than Frank Herbert's books.

If you like the new works, then here's more of the same.

If you like Dune, you'll wonder what the point of these inserts are.

I will say that Brian (at least the style seems more like his, but I could be wrong) did a decent job of breaking down the relevant points about love from Heretics and Chapterhouse in the "Sea Child" story for the LCD reader.

A caveat for anyone new to the Duniverse, there is a very active "community" against the new books of which I am a member. This is just a disclaimer here so those who read this only as an anonymous review know that I do have a bias against the new works due to their inherent mediocrity and the audacity of the new authors to consider them equivalent to the original works.
