Review — The Dosadi Experiment by Frank Herbert
Once it picked up [for me, it exleriment well over halfway through the book; say, pages] I did enjoy it. Aug 24, Stephen rated it really liked it Shelves: I really, really, really wanted to like this book. The most obvious difference is of course the presence of alien sophants in the universe of Jorj X McKie, whereas the Dune universe was human-only. The ‘weirdest’ part of the book: While meditating experjment a park in the Bureau’s headquarters, McKie is mentally contacted by the Caleban Fannie Mae, a female member of a multidimensional species of unparalleled power whose visible manifestation in this universe is the star Thyone in the Pleiades cluster.
The Dosadi is in this “other” category — other in that it takes place in an entirely different universe than what occurs in said series. McKie tracks down the “rebel” leader and finds Keila Jedrik, a human woman and civil servant who has orchestrated civil unrest and rebellion.

I’m not sure that it matters with this book, but there were a few reveals in the denoument that I’m questioning. Books by Frank Herbert.
Herbert is the master of what I call whafuck?! But wxperiment is a nobility about them as well. For example, the people set on Dosadi evolve to be both extremely perceptive and quick thinkers, as their violent living conditions are ruthless to the meek and the slow. Much is left to the imagination and the insinuation of the reader, in a way Herbert does early on with Dune.
