Dune Messiah…

Dune Messiah is the second in the Dune series written by Frank Herbert.

I got a few warnings from people that the sequels to the original book were not so good. I have to admit it lacks the direction and thrust of the first book, but it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. In fact I actually quite enjoyed it. It does ramble a bit at times, but it was nice to see some of the other characters getting fleshed out a bit.

This book and the next book, Children of Dune, were combined into the Children of Dune TV mini series. Having seen that, I’m expecting Children of Dune to be a bit random. We shall see. 🙂

  1. The third book in the Dune series is also quite hard to get through. From there on it only gets better. Also the prequels by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are a great read.

  2. Long after I read the original, two “prequel” books helped me make sense of all the plot twists of the original and sequels.
    Dune: House Atreides and Dune: House Harkonnen are worth the read if you feel inclined. Never read Dune: House Corrino, but now you’re sparking my curiosity again! The ebook is quite cheap, so I might get it soon…
