This complicated but triumphant conclusion to the prequel trilogy of Frank Herbert's epic DUNE is clearly and deftly read. Tim Curry is an outstanding English character actor, and his versatile voice distinguishes the many characters, giving each one a distinct personality. Background music and sound effects add drama and interest to this production. Emperor Shaddam Corrino has directed research on the captured planet, Ix, resulting in the discovery of a synthetic version of a highly addictive spice. This spice can give Shaddam absolute power. This epic saga of love and war, crime and politics, and religion and revolution will fascinate sci-fi enthusiasts and easily be enjoyed by those who have never read about Dune before. S.C.A.
