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?

    "Great book! Decent performance"

    Sometimes the changes in voices was odd or distracting. Different people voicing same characters at different points in book. Overall still a good story and performance.

    "Good but not as good as the first"

    Was an interesting read, but I didn't get as hooked as I did the first book. The performance is nearly as interesting as the first book either. Still worth reading if you enjoyed the first

    "Jewelkeep: A treasure among books"

    Frank Herbert gave us gold in a sci-fi / fantasy series. Through the lens of a brutal and harsh culture, he reveals heights and depths of the human condition. In Dune Messiah he continues to strike answering chords in me, reverberating ever deeper, planting seeds of contemplation which will put down long roots...food for thought for a very long time.

    "Horrible"

    Big fan of all things Dune. This does not make the grade. Scott Brick is the best but the other three narrators are horrible. Whose idea was it to have fourm narrators reading the same characters in alternating segments? Very unsettling and diluting. Thoroughly disappointing

    Story
    "A lot of philosophy and mysticism, not much else"

    An enjoyable follow-up to Dune, to be sure, but not much actually *happens*. There is a lot of prophesying and introspection and philosophy going around, and not so much a narrative plot. I enjoyed all of it, but in many ways it was VASTLY different from its predecessor. Still, at the end of it, I want to continue on in the series, so in that respect it is a successful sequel.

    "better than the first"

    a worthwhile second entry in the series. this time taking a political turn but still carrying all the majesty of the first entry in the series

    "Always enjoying a Dune book."

    The main narator's voice is annoying when he impersonates a female character. Especially when they're in an emotional state.
