God Emperor of Dune book.

The later books in the Dune series have a bad rep. This book is bizarre for sure, but somehow Herbert convinced me to empathize with a 3500 year old worm-human hybrid that can see the future, which I consider to be an impressive feat of writing. 19 people found this helpful.

God Emperor of Dune, written by Frank Herbert, is the fourth novel in the original Dune series of novels. 3,500 years have passed since Paul Atreides became the messiah of the Fremen and the Emperor of the universe. His son, Leto II, sees the path his father Muad'dib saw, a future that avoided the extinction of human life. That future, however, required the ultimate and monstrous act of selflessness of becoming a metamorphic vector between primate and worm.

the God Emperor Since authenticated recordings of the God Emperor are lodged in the Bene . From the reading by Rebeth Vreeb: I ASSURE you that I am the book of fate. Questions are my enemies.

First, let me recall to you the historical treasure which we all know by the name of The Stolen Journals, those volumes of known antiquity which over the centuries have been so valuable in helping us to understand our ancestors. Since authenticated recordings of the God Emperor are lodged in the Bene Gesserit Archives, we have sent a sampling of our recordings, all of which were made on an ancient microbubble system, to the Sisterhood with a formal request that they conduct a comparison test. We have little doubt that the recordings will be authenticated.

Published in 1965, Frank Herbert’s Dune is a classic science fiction novel about Paul Atreides. Paul is fifteen years old and is small for his age, but he is smart: he already sees the future in his dreams sometimes. House Atreides is preparing to leave its home of twenty-six generations, Castle Caladan, for Arrakis, a desert planet more commonly known as Dune. This planet is home to the spice, a substance that gives people a number of abilities, such as the ability to navigate safe routes through space.

This is the transition between the original Dune trilogy (Dune, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune) and the second trilogy that started with Heretics and Chapterhouse Dune. It is written differently from the more action oriented first books, making it a more philosophically oriented what-if book. What if there was a benevolent absolute dictator that forced peace and calm upon all of humanity for 4000 years? Frank Herbert says that people innately long for conflict and that we would look at peace differently after we had more than our fill of it.

This was the most challenging yet rewarding book in the series. Lots of subtleties and deeper concepts. The development of the god emperor, Duncan, and Hwi were spectacular as well as other characters. Overall it has a different feel than the previous book. It's one of the books you need to re-read to catch everything.

Set 3500 years after the previous book, GEoD focuses squarely on Leto II as he follows the Golden Path.

It is (over)loaded with philosophy that is, I think, supposed to justify Leto's actions toward humanity. I think more judicious editing could have stopped some over use of the same ideas. However, it is not overly detrimental to the book.

My real issue with the GEoD is the glacial pacing and lack of big payoffs for the reader. Again, harsher editing could have helped.

I have mixed feelings about the book, but I did enjoy it. It could easily have been five stars with the aforementioned editing and I fully understand why some reviewers have given low ratings for its shortcomings.

I really enjoy the Dune series and am used to how 'heavy' they can be at times so this book was ultimately a good interesting read.

It is possible to see in the development of myth a bypassing of the original inspiration. Rather than personal insight, many come to rely upon the forms of myth as knowledge in and of itself.

In the Dune series, the role of myth and the power it plays in the universe created by Frank Herbert is particularly strong. This book, the fourth in the series, gets straight to the heart of the matter by allowing the reader to witness the original inspiration in action.

Most would accept that the great novels of the world are reflections of their authors and of the realisations attained in their own lives. The truly great novels are replete with insights into life, death and all that exists in between. Yet what happens when such insights are coated in the guise of science-fiction? It would serve the reader well to see the discoveries and insights of this novel as those of Frank Herbert.

The plot of God Emperor, such that it is, is held together purely by the strength of the insights provided by its main character, Leto II, and his relationship with those lacking in those insights. These relationships provide much of the novel's movement as Leto II continues his husbandry role within the known Dune universe. Through Leto II, the reader becomes privy to the nature of self-awareness, its enlargening and at the same time isolating effect on the individual. From this, we see the reality behind original inspiration and the reality behind myth and legend. As such, God Emperor serves as the perfect novel from which to understand the rest of the Dune series.

As a work of science-fiction, the book offers less than it does as a book on the nature of self-discovery and creative insight.

This is the best of the series in my opinion. Frank Herbert was a master at weaving esoteric/political/social/environmental truth into the conversations of his characters. I loved looking at all the issues and actions through the lenses of Duncan, Leto, Siona, and all of the other differently motivated subjugated people groups. I will probably read this again.

It's hard to imagine how an author can position himself to write from the perspective of Leto, but Herbert does it better than anyone else could have. Yes, it seems a bit self indulgent in many places; maybe even pretentious, but my only complaint is how needlessly verbose it ends up being. If you read the first three Dune books, you'll probably read this. The journey is worth it. 4/5 for a thoughtful, wordy imagination.
With all the new stories from Chapter House through the end and although Herbert and whoever combinations it was interesting to go back and reread the god emperor particularly the ending. Great characters great story great stuff Classic Dune. The new books are fun but they don't really carry the weight of the Frank Herbert classics.
