Why then, Ryll asked himself, did Dreens look so similar-lumpy ovoid bodies with four concealed legs and two arms with six-fingered hands extruded only when needed?

Man of Two Worlds - Frank Herbert. When we were still laboring on Man of Two Worlds after midnight on August 9th, I reflected on how wonderful it was to be working beside my father, this great and learned man. I watched him leaning over the computer screen, punching buttons to cut words from a paragraph. Whenever we added material, he tried to find somewhere on the same page where he could cut, so that the page numbering would not be altered, and he only had to reprint one page at a time.

I thought this book was great, the way different types of men could live in one body, I belive that the book could have another one to follow tjis one. I don't know how the author could think of all the things in this book.

Let me start by saying Frank Herbert was a terrific writer and his novel, Dune, was one of the best books I have ever read. Most of the other books in that series were also very engaging with Children of Dune being the sole exception. His other non-Dune books were also very good reads. I own but have not yet read the continuation of the Dune series by Frank's son, Brian.

Perhaps Brian is as good a writer as his father, perhaps even better. However, if Man of Two Worlds is any indication, I am in for some disappointment. This book reads much like the lesser sci-fi of the 1950s and earlier. This book started off with little to keep me interested but I continued mainly out of my respect for Herbert the elder. But the characters were shallow and selfish with virtually no character development. The aliens were not well thought-out and alien abilities were added whenever the story seemed to need them. The aliens themselves were so human in their thoughts that they were alien only in appearance and ability. I forced myself to continue reading with the understanding that, bad though this book is, I could write a review that would prevent others from wasting their time and money. With about a sixth of the book remaining, it looked to finally get interesting. Alas, no, the interesting parts lasted for no more than a dozen pages. The ending sort of dribbles off with the only satisfaction being that I was finally finished and could move on to something, anything, better.

EDIT: The copy I read was printed, not Kindle, and I obtained it from a used-book store.

Frank Herbert is best known as the author of the SF masterpiece Dune, while his son Brian is best known for screwing up his father's legacy by writing the lousy SF books about the Dune universe.

Man of Two Worlds, tells the story of Ryll, who is a member of a pacifist alien race (a Dreen), and Lutt Hanson Jr. heir to a large business empire and a ruthless man who will stop at nothing to maximize profits and get his way with women.

After a tragic accident both men are forced to share the same body. While both men struggle for control of the same body, they are drawn into events, since before the merger Lutt created a machine that could threaten the Dreen homeworld. The Dreens struggle how to handle the Earther threat.

While Ryll and Lutt are clearly Jekyll and Hyde, the Dreens come across as a bunch of incompetent idiots (this is where the comparisons to Douglass Adam's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy come from). For example, rather than consider the "erasure" of Earth, wouldn't it make more sense to take out this Lutt Hanson?

Then there are the love scenes. I mean an alien and a human squabbling over whether to have sex? Stupid!

Unfortunately, the end result is less than satisfaction.

I really enjoyed this book. You can't really identify which author did which sections, but the format and style is that of Frank's other works. This book had a great story line with a mix of emotions. This work isn't like the Dune books in its content, but is still very intuiging for the other twists, turns, and emotions that come out of it. You can definately find yourself relating to the experiences of many different characters in the book. The character development is very good, as you would expect from a book by Frank Herbert. This is a book that I just found difficult to put down and have actually read multiple times.

This is one of the books that got me into SciFi when I was younger and while I have only latent memories of it I still hold it dear. I remember some parts of the story dragging a little in the middle but overall I really loved that book.

Overall this book was very enjoyable. I felt that the story idea was very interesting and it reminded me somewhat of the style of Heinlein. I was somewhat disappointed with the ending, but I must admit that the book kept me reading and interested. Overall, not a bad read.
Not all books can be winners. MAN OF TWO WORLDS is a pointless story of selfishness without any direction and an unsatisfying ending. Definitely a do not read
