Publisher's Summary

The epic, multimillion-selling science-fiction series continues! 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?

    "A weaker sequel"

    Not as captivating as the first book but takes the story forward nevertheless. Let's hope next book is better.

    "Not Dune, but still great"

    It's not the original Dune, this isn't an adventure story. But if you liked the political subterfuge of the first book, this book is driven by it. A great conclusion to Muad'dib's story, taking the reader from a place of fear and slight disgust to once again, awe and admiration. Definitely worth the read if you enjoyed the original Dune.

    Not as strong as Dune. I hope Children of Dune is better. A lot better.

    "shocked and thrilled"

    I was shocked and thrilled with this book. This is my second time reading it in under one decade. I have decided that because I have read so many books within the expanded and original universe of dune, that this book makes for such a powerful and deeply probing experience into the motives of all the races and characters and their philosophy THAT Messiah is my new favorite and I plan to read it before the end of the year. I have read all original! Dune books by Frank Herbert and the two books following Chapterhouse in sequence. Then I read the interquels (Paul of Dune and Winds of Dune), and just before reading this book I listened to the Houses of Dune prequels and the Butlerian Jihad series. The newest books in the series Sisterhood and Mentats, I have yet to read. I will read those though even though Frank Herbert far surpassed Kevin and Brian for depth of meaning and philosophical subtext. Dune is such a great book and listening experience that it would change society in such a way that would leave Star Wars philosophers at a loss for words, stumbling like a clumsy Gungan.

    Messiah because the deep reaching truths and connections to every other book in the Dune series deserves my attention and may move to the top of my list for all time best book in the series, although God Emperor of Dune (pending and reread) is my favorite now.

    "boring and predictable"

    Don't bother. Everything is predictable and/or rather gross. Skip this one and go on to the next book.in the series. None of the sequels match the original, first book. And the isslamic jihad no longer seem like ancient history.

    "Very sad story"

    I liked this book a lot. Just like the first book, I was really captivated by the continuing storyn. My only complaint, is that it was too short.
