finished reading the awesome heretics of dune - thought it was brilliant but surprising end of the dune series - then found out there was another last book written by frank herbert - there is a god emperor!
stunning fifth book in frank herberts dune series. introduces the effects of the scattering path - also its back to the planet dune/rakis in all its desert life/death/glory/mystique
the dune trilogy has been completed - what would you do next with one of the greatest science fiction stories ever?
if you are hoping for another clone of the original dune book then this will disappoint - frank herbert does what frank herbert does with each of the books - makes it very different to what you expected/experienced in the others
children of dune is the last book in the original dune trilogy and is an awesome ending to this part of the series.
delving even further into the history/mythology/religion of the dune universe and exploring the authors thoughts on reality/religion this book is more like the first book in the series.
dune messiah by frank herbert (published in 1971).
dune messiah is the second part of the dune trilogy but very different to the original dune story although it has all the same characters and based on the arrakis planet (dune review) - but goes deep into the story/character/vision of the hero/villain muad'dib.
dune. awesome. it is science fictions version of lord of the rings - you even get lots of sing songs.
apart from the singing it is super stuff - full of a wonderful strange world and detailed future human culture that the the author frank herbert has created a future universe.
