Dune Messiah continues the story of Paul Atreides, better known -- and feared -- as the man christened Muad'Dib. As Emperor of the known universe, he possesses more power than a single man was ever meant to wield. Worshipped as a religious icon by the fanatical Fremen, Paul faces the enmity of the political houses he displaced when he assumed the throne -- and a conspiracy conducted within his own sphere of influence. And even as House Atreides begins to crumble around him from the machinations of his enemies, the true threat to Paul comes to his lover Chani and the unborn heir to his family's dynasty ....… (mer)

Paul Atriedes, Maud'dib, unleashed the Fremen on the Empire, and in this sequel to Dune, now controls many worlds. Arrakeen, the capitol, is irrigated by underground reservoirs, and many Fremen live in relative comfort, but miss the old seitch ways. The Bene Gesserit still plot to stop Paul, recruiting a Tleiaxu shape shifter and creating a Duncan Idaho clone who has all memories of his former life. The shape shifter lures Paul to a rendezvous with an old Fremen, and detonates an atomic blast that destroys Paul's eyes, but his spice-induced mystic sense of prescience allows him to function as though he still sees, until the plot is quelled. He then walks into the dessert, as is the Freman way. Herbert waxes mystical and philosophical, beginning most chapters with an epigram of pronouncements from the collected works of Maud'dib, and giving Paul constant misgivings and conflict as he walks with full knowledge of his fate. The original Dune came up with a unique world, and was a good adventure yarn. This sequel is not of the same quality. ( )

This was a difficult book. Much more of the story was internal - characters thinking about Time and its effects on their own particular plot. I felt confused frequently and wondered how everything came together. The end was satisfying with the resolution making sense, though a lot was relegated to characters just talking about what happened to others who were mostly absent for the last third of the book.

Probably a *little* closer to a 3.75/5. While very different from DUNE, I found this enjoyable in a different way. This is much shorter, and more interior and cerebral. The cast of characters is a little different with some notable changes and absences, I found myself yearning for characters we don’t see. What would X have thought? Why is Y absent? New cultures/species/organizations/what have you are present and these are interesting, though feel a bit shallower than those in the first book. I will say again that I think Denis made a wise decision to leave out all the CHOAM stuff in his adaptations - it was so boring in the first book that even Frank seems to have abandoned it.

Rare for me, I think this may benefit from another 50 pages. A few key things happen and then the final chapter wraps everything up *quite* quickly, with much happening in exposition describing off-page events. What a loss! It feels a robbery to lose closing moments in this way.

***Spoilers follow***

Probably because I’ve breathed the secondhand smoke of the Duneheads, I never exactly fell for Paul as a great hero, and so read the first book not exactly charmed by his maturation. Instead, I thought a lot about him as a somewhat willing victim(?) of his own machinations and prophecy.

MESSIAH carries this on, and makes it quite clear that Paul is not a hero. Not many heroes compare k/d ratios with Genghis Khan and Hitler. Still, for whatever it is worth, we believe that Paul believes he does things for some reason - something he still sees as a terrible purpose. For all his future sight and vision, he seems to have no insight. He willingly steps into his oracular visions and never questions this willingness in forming self-fulfilling cataclysms.

Perhaps the biggest losses in the closing are how Paul and the Reverend Mother are handled in the closing. I am kind of floored by this. What a strange thing to not depict… ( )

Smooth and well written. The philosophical and time speculation didn't get old. The planet and the people and the desert were described well and never too much at one time. And the story took a fantastic turn with Paul walking out into the desert at the end. Looking forward to the next in the series. ( )

Very good world building. I'd say it was a near perfect sequel to Dune. Can't wait to read the next one. ( )

Such a rich store pf myths enfolds Paul Muad'dib, the Mentat Emperor, and his sister, Alia, it is difficult to see the real persons behind these veils. But there were, after all, a man born Paul Atreides and a woman born Alia. Their flesh was subject to space and time. And even though their oracular powers placed them beyond the usual limits of time and space, they came from human stock. They experienced real events which left traces upon a real universe. To understand them, it must be seen that their catastrophe of all mankind. This work is dedicated, then, not to Muad'dib or his sister, but to thier heirs - to all of us.

Prologue: Dune is the planet Arrakis, an arid world of great deserts where life survives against terrifying odds.
Analysis of History: Muad'dib by Brons of Ix: Muad'dib's Imperial reign generated more historians than any other era in human history.
Despite the murderous nature of the plot he hoped to devise, the thoughts of Scytale, the Tleilaxu Face Dancer, returned again and again to rueful compassion.
