Sintesi dell'editore

Immortal aliens have observed Earth forcenturies, making full sensory movies of wars, natural disasters, and horrifichuman activities - all to relieve their endless boredom. When they finally becomejaded by ordinary, run-of-the-mill tragedies, they find ways to create theirown disasters, just to amuse themselves.

But interfering with human activities isforbidden, and the authorities have been known to check on these matters fromtime to time. However, by the time Investigator Kelexel arrives to investigate,the trouble has been going on for a long, long time - and things are reallygetting out of hand.

a Dune fix

I came across this book while searching for something, anything that would satisfy the high I'd become accustomed to while listening to every Dune book. this was sufficient. Creative, gripping and emotionally intelligent. If Dune is a 10, this work is a strong 7. that is a good thing!

I dig it!

Good hard science fiction, couldn't believe how well this book aged. It's been well over a decade since I took a psychology class, but I really felt like everything was spot on. The plot twist was simple, not over done, and practically forced me to love this book to the very end.

Read this a long time ago and just came across it.

Would you listen to The Heaven Makers again? Why?

Yes, I love Herbert's older, non-Dune work, and it gets short shrift among the Dune fans.

What other book might you compare The Heaven Makers to and why?

Godmakers, Dosadi Experiment, any of Herbert's older work.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's a bit ponderous, but easy to listen to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not a particular one, just all-around.

Any additional comments?

Any Dune fans should check out this and Herbert's other old books. He has many universes that are worth a read or listen.

A thought provoking traipse

Worth the listen. Some very captivating moments, with some large jumps in between. Overall, an interesting concept that sparks more ideas and what ifs outside the story than within it.

Very human aliens

Melodramatic. A bit too much for me. Made worse by the narration. The aliens, supposedly far advanced beyond humanity in every way, seemed like lesser versions of the human characters. The ability for aliens who evolved on a different world to breed with humans is far fetched - as is the physical attraction to humans. The message or lesson in psychology and philosophy is intended to be the focus of the story but the overly dramatic telling of the story along with the poorly drawn aliens dominated the experience for me. I'm a big fan of Herbert's Dune books, but not so much his other works.
