The second Dune installment explores new developments on the planet Arrakis, with its intricate social order and strange, threatening environment. Dune Messiah picks up the story of the man known as Muad'Dib, heir to a power unimaginable, bringing to fruition an ambition of unparalleled scale: the centuries-old scheme to create a superbeing who reigns not in the heavens but among men. But the question is: DO all paths of glory lead to the grave?

No emotion. Mispronounced words. Making one of my favorite stories boring, one chapter at a time. different narrators for different chapters? hey Audible, want a better version of this audio production? I'd be happy to do it.

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

the audio performance is lacking. some chapters have voice actors playing roles. One of the voice actors chose to make Baron Harkonen sound like Darth Vader. other chapters have different voice actors and some are just read by one person. no consistency.

The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

Great book. jumps back and fourth between the early life of Paul Atredies and the time directly after the events of the original book.

Narrator Scott Brick kills it as always.

The desert planet Arrakis, called Dune, has been destroyed. Now, the Bene Gesserit, heirs to Dune's power, have colonized a green world - and are tuning it into a desert, mile by scorched mile. Chapterhouse Dune is the last book Frank Herbert wrote before his death and stunning climax to the epic Dune legend that will live on forever.

I'm about 2 hours in and still have no goddamn clue whats happening . I love all the dune books but this trilogy in particular seems to suffer from lack of direction at the beginning of the books.

also...audible, if you're going to have multiple narrators read the same book, could you make some effort to ensure they are pronouncing words properly? and the same way between different narrators? I'm glad I used a credit for this book as opposed to money cause I'd be asking for my money back. these Narrators are awful. more Scott Brick, less pompous sounding Brits....

On Arrakis, now called Rakis, known to legend as Dune, 10 times 10 centuries have passed. The planet is becoming desert again. The Lost Ones are returning home from the far reaches of space. The great sandworms are dying, and the Bene Gesserit and the Bene Tleilax struggle to direct the future of Dune. The children of Dune's children awaken as from a dream, wielding the new power of a heresy called love.
