    The second Dune installment explores new developments on the planet Arrakis, with its intricate social order and strange, threatening environment. Dune Messiah picks up the story of the man known as Muad'Dib, heir to a power unimaginable, bringing to fruition an ambition of unparalleled scale: the centuries-old scheme to create a superbeing who reigns not in the heavens but among men. But the question is: DO all paths of glory lead to the grave?

    Any additional comments?

    I am usually a big fan of series books, but not in this case. I will probably listen to one more, but if it is a slow as this one, I will give it up. Much less compelling than the original book, the story lumbered along, did not have the drive of the first. I did not think the characters matured or developed through the story, which seemed more like a boring history lecture than a continuation of a big adventure.

    George Sand was a 19th century French novelist known not only for her novels but even more for her scandalous behavior. After leaving her estranged husband, Sand moved to Paris where she wrote, wore men's clothing, smoked cigars, and had love affairs with famous men and an actress named Marie. In an era of incredible artistic talent, Sand was the most famous female writer of her time.

    Story

    I read critical reviews about the narrator, but the story was in first person about George Sand, who described herself in the book as having a flat and unemotional voice. I decided the narrative was perfect for the character.
