Story

Good book and narration.

I've always enjoyed Frank Herbert's ability to bring me into the characters. He makes me care about them, feel their emotions, and root for them (or against them). His imagination knew no bounds. Godmakers did not disappoint me in any of those areas. I just wish that there was more of it. The narration was great, even though the pacing was a bit on the slow side.
