The intrigues and secretive manipulations of those in power (the heirless and brutal emperor), those who would be in power (the ruthless Baron Harkonnen), and those who prefer to exercise power in secret (the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood) weave a complex plot that may be a bit hard to follow for those who haven't read (or heard) the first prequel to the Dune series, DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES. For newcomers and followers alike, the way is made clearer by the robust narration of Michael Prichard. He provides rich characterizations of the major players and those behind them, who are often even more important to keep an eye on. Prichard gives a strong and forceful performance. J.E.M.
