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?

Amazing story, not even I could for see where this story went the ending was so unexpected and how it intertwined with the rest of the series was so perfect and settled that several times during the reading I literally had to stop press pause and admire the structure of story
Narration was great, however the story was very dull in comparison to the 1st book "Dune".
Most interesting character was Edric, I did enjoy learning a bit more about the Guild Steersman.
Least interesting was Duncan Idaho and how 90% of the book focused on this boring clone. Hopefully the next book "Children of Dune" will be better.
much more character based that Dune, much slower paced but deeper.
I really don't like how they change narrators. two voices for each characters is a bad idea
Herbert was certainly given some freedom after the success of Dune, and he used it to . . . I'm not sure what he used it for. He seems to have stood back from his canvas and thrown plot lines at it. Apart from the lack of narrative cohesion, the Sci Fi relies on mystical elements that were there in Dune but we're at least explicable.
The only thing I didn't like about this audiobook was the multiple narrators. Their performances were good but I didn't see the point of having many.
love the series. the voice actors changed the narration parts in this one. it threw me off. I liked the way the prequel dune books are voiced better. the story is fantastic and I love this universe!
