The opening is slow; the conversation among the aliens is dull and obscure, but once the action moves to Earth and a nasty husband-wife knife murder, things get very interesting. Herbert's writing clears up and becomes crisp and vivid. And when we see the aliens suddenly at work, through psychologist Thurlow's eyes, eyes that have been oddly damaged by an explosion and covered with polarizing lenses to protect them, things get quite interesting. When the Chem aliens kidnap a human female, it gets even better.
While not one of Herbert's better novels, and despite it suffering from vagueness of the opening chapters (something it shares with The Godmakers) this is still an exciting science fiction novel. Herbert on a mediocre day is better than many at their best. If you can get past the opening chapters, you will find plenty to enjoy in this classic sci-fi novel.
I have read Mr Hurberts 'Dune' series, which I liked.
This small book proves he had other ideas and would have been an interesting bloke to have drink with.
If you have a thing against little aliens who live forever give this book a miss as it will upset you.
This in my opinion is worth a read.

It took me quite some time to get through the first 12 chapters or so. During that time, I felt this must be the worst book Herbert ever wrote.Read more
