    I loved the first book Dune , but this sequel is terrible In the first book our characters did things and made decisions Some turned out well This is the basic structure of a story.In this book our main protagonist can see the future, he spends the entire book refusing to do anything at all apart from be sad about what is going to happen because he can see that doing something to protect himself from the bad stuff that is coming will make it worse No explanation other than he can see the future is ever offered for why acting in his own defence would make things worse We spent the entire book waiting for the thing every character knows is coming to happen but of course the audience is left in the dark about what is comming Then not much happens.If you liked Dune then show it the respect it deserves, by never touching this horrid sequel.

    This second book in the Dune trilogy polarises people I confess when I first read this back in 1979 about a year after reading Dune for the first time I didn t particularly like it because it is very different, yes same characters, locations etc. but the story line is not the same fast paced action and eventual results you hope for for the main character Paul Having now just read Dune again 40 years later immediately followed by Dune Messiah I now get it, it can t be the same as Dune as it wouldn t work as a book Dune is about change and the excitement of that happening, Messiah is about the consequences of that change and having to deal with the awful reality of it all, so its a bit bleak at times but reading it straight away after Dune was important to me as it felt like the conclusion to Paul s Dune experience Do I like it, sort of, well maybe but it makes sense and anything is difficult to compare with Dune so I guess I do like it.

    I ll be honest, for someone who loves sci fi films, I m not traditionally a huge fan of sci fi novels, usually favouring horror Lately though, I ve read a few, Adrian Tchaikovsky being a highlight But I ve also read Dune and Dune Messiah and both books had me hooked The characters are interesting and the plot compelling, but it s the world building that stands out for me and the attention to detail Hopefully, the upcoming film by Denis Villeneuve will do it justice.

    This is not a review of the book but this specific edition The first and the third book in the Dune series are both readable on the cloud web reader which allows me to read them on my laptop on the train without having to have a second device This one for some reason will not load and instead asks for my phone number so that I can read it on a phone.

    New edition from 2018 2019 by Hodder publishing contains typos which is a disgrace for such a book I love the story, but the publisher made mistakes which shouldnt be accepted by any professional

    I have read this book many years ago, the paperback has long gone, in a moment of whimsy l ordered this Kindle copy The younger me, had not fully grasped the story line fully, the older so A reflection of the other side of the coin, from Dune, prescience and power, a seductive path.

    Really enjoyed this, it s been two years since I finished Dune and I wasn t that impressed with it initially but after reading this I think I might have to go back and read it again This book is nowhere near as fast paced as the one before it but that s what allows Herbert to explore the characters in such great depth.

    Good story, although the first one was better

    The second and the shortest book in the series While the original Dune was about Paul s rise to power this second book is about him trying to maintain it against internal conspiracies The story and the narrative is not as good as the first book, which is considered a masterpiece by many, but still it will appeal to most of the people who enjoyed the first book and the story has some intriguing points I absolutely recommend continuing with the series, at least the first trilogy, to everyone who had read the first book The quality of the book is good and the texts are legible Its size makes it really easy to carry around as well.

    It took me 2 tries to get into it as I ve seen children of dune and new the main plot points already, but it has a lot detail and shows the intentions that get lost in the show I am really enjoying this read through and the political problems it brings up The first book already gave people a lot to think about but this one doesn t lack in that aspect either Seeing your hero fall short of your expectations and hit by the realities of his actions is a tough nut to crack, but it is great Definitely recommend this

    Where did Herbert go It looks like this book is written by a different person Most of all I cannot justify the choice of letting out of the plot the building of the empire, the war, the struggle. I don t want to see the action, otherwise I won t be reading Dune, but I just want to know how and why.However, this edition, this cover graphic is really outstanding in beauty.
