    More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

    Joel D Offenberg says: "Almost as good as the original"
    "The God Emperor - A hero's hero"

    Story
    What did you love best about God Emperor of Dune?

    Despite it's age "The God Emperor" rings true in this time of 2012.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Lord Leto with his dedication to the survival of the human race has not been seen since Jesus. Although he did it with less grace.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    The prologue narratives.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of the God Emperor.


    Any additional comments?

    If only we could learn from our mistakes and work together in the world without selfish pride getting in the way we would have a far better place to live in. The book looks back and uses mistakes from the past to build a bridge to the future where things are apparently the same as today only with more technology. A bit of a scary thought.
