Once...upon...a...death! That's how this book started; how can you not be intrigued with a beginning like that. Mr Herbert like a fine wine gets better with age. I've read several of his novels and this is one of his top five. It makes me see the world around me in a different light. We as humans always wondered if we are alone in the universe. We are not even alone on the great blue sphere called Earth. Keep your eyes open to the possibility of faerefolkis,undines, elves, brownies, evildoers, witches and succubus to name a few. You don't believe in such things, read Once and you surely will.
