World Building over storytelling (Off-Topic)

It sounds good enough for me at the moment, but isn't this foreseeable given the Part 1 thing? In the book that's certainly right when things get "woozy and amorphous" in the words of the critic.


This is exactly the point. Much like Destiny, you don’t get to do a ton of world building while neglecting the story, with the promise that it’ll all make sense or be satisfying later.

Given the popularity of both Dune and Destiny, I’d say the exact opposite of what you’re saying is true.
