The Long and Winding Road

by WCook on Apr 9, 2009

Have you already read Dune? If not, read it first before Dune Messiah, the second volume of the sextet. In this book Paul Atreides accepts the mantle of Kwisatz Haderach and, while loathing to do so, becomes a universal religious figure, the least disastrous choice among the possibilities that he sees. All your favorite characters are here: the Bene Gesserit, CHOAM and the Spacing Guild, but new ones are introduced. House Harkonnen has been subjugated but you become acquainted with the Tleilaxu and their gift to paul: the ghola of Duncan Idaho (a living being made from the cells of a cadaver). The ghola is intended to kill Paul, but the conflict of subconscious commands and ingrained loyalty produces a dramatic and unexpected result -- one that insures Duncan's reappearance in all future novels. This is the shortest of the Dune novels, but is just as gripping as all the others.
