Dune Messiah (Dune Chronicles, Book 2)

Frank Herbert
Dune Messiah continues the story of the man Muad'dib, heir to a power unimaginable, bringing to completion the centuries-old scheme to create a super-being. "Brilliant...It is all that Dune was, and maybe a little bit more." --Galaxy Magazine

Bad in the way the television sequels, or movie sequels, are bad. Generally slow, a let down, confused and a few painful moments.

After getting through half of this I couldn't face it anymore.

I have had this book since college when I read Dune. Dune for me was a complete story, so I never read book 2.

Dune Messiah is much more about intrigues. It is like reading about someone describing a chess match played by Calvin Ball rules. You can see all the pieces but have no idea how they will actually be played.

Quite a bit darker than the book that preceded it, Messiah is an interesting book on the nature of destiny. Still very good, but maybe more profound and less thrilling than Dune.
