5.0 out of 5 stars The unsettling decline of Dune's "Messiah"
By Kim on October 16, 2019
First off, the cover art for this series is amazing. The colors and page-layout are perfect. The only thing that might be off-putting is that the sequels don't match the same size as the first book. Maybe its because I bought the first book at Barnes and Noble? But the smaller and more compact size is actually quite nice and feels like you're breezing through pages faster.

What to say about Dune Messiah that hasn't already been said? Well, it turns out Frank Herbert was making controversial decisions before George RR Martin. He takes the "messiah/heroic archetype" and flips it on top of its head. In a brilliant way, nothing happens the way you think it's going to happen, not even for our protagonist, Paul Atreides. But wait, how is that possible? Paul Atreides, Muad'Dib, a trained mentat, the male equivalent to a Reverand Mother, the Kwisatz Haderach who can see endless possibilities, doesn't have all the answers? This is why you should read Dune Messiah. It shows the internal struggle and isolation of a man (Paul) and his sister (Alia) being treated as god-like figures, but Frank Herbert does a great job reminding us that they're still human, which makes them relatable and easy to empathize with.

The conspiracy surrounding Paul's Imperium is most compelling, the thoughts and discoveries from our beloved characters are engaging, and the philosophy that Frank Herbert communicates through his story-telling is even more thought-provoking than the first book. Everything about this book just kept propelling me forward.

I found Dune Messiah to be a near-perfect sequel that greatly expounds on ideas that were introduced in the first book. But it also reveals many new ideas and teaches new things to the reader. One of the greatest joys I take from this series is how much I learn, and Frank Herbert has a lot to teach and expound upon through his characters. You'd be selling yourself short if you didn't continue reading the series.
