|New from||Used from|
Dune Messiah continues the story of Paul Atreides, better known - and feared - as the man christened Muad'Dib. As Emperor of the Known Universe, he possesses more power than a single man was ever meant to wield. Worshipped as a religious icon by the fanatical Fremen, Paul faces the enmity of the political houses he displaced when he assumed the throne - and a conspiracy conducted within his own sphere of influence.
And even as House Atreides begins to crumble around him from the machinations of his enemies, the true threat to Paul is directed against his lover, Chani, and the unborn heir to his family's dynasty . . .
Read the series which inspired the 2021 Denis Villeneuve epic film adaptation, Dune, starring Oscar Isaac, Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya and Josh Brolin.

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.
I’m giving this only 3 stars because of this particular edition - FAR too many typos! At one point I was coming across one on every page. Totally distracting and takes you out of the flow. Missing full stops, “Iruian”, “Lannerjee”, “kwlsatz haderach”... pretty appalling for a book that’s been around for decades and read by millions.
However I have to further rate it down due to the number of typos and grammatical errors in the 2017 Hodder & Stoughton publication edition that I received. Every 3/4 pages there is a misspelling, punctuation missing, etc. These would normally be only a small gripe, but due to the frequency which they occur they started taking me out of the story as I couldnt help but notice them. For such a large publishing company such as Hodder, this is really not good enough.
