    Excellent!

    I loved this book. I was a bit surprised that they decided not to continue with the dramatisation from the first book, but enjoyable all the same

    Good-not-great book, not as fond of the narration

    Dune Messiah is the sequel to Frank Herbert's masterpiece, Dune. As is often the case, it does not live up to the high standard of the first installement, but it is still pretty good.

    First off: if you haven't read/listened to Dune, ignore this book until you've done that.

    This book wraps up the story of Paul Muad'Dib Atriedes; 12 years after the successful war to capture the imperial throne, Paul is dealing (struggling?) with the issues of governance, the imperial succession and plots to overthrow him. The story deals with strategems, plots and plots-within-plots. For those who desire swashbuckling action, laser battles in space, exploring strange new worlds and menacing merciless malefactors will find this book disappointing....Dune Messiah is mostly conversation and internal dialogue. It's a slow-moving story...most of the action (and there isn't much of it) occurs in the final quarter of the book. (This style is common among Frank Herbert's writing.)

    Dune Messiah is a bit more mystical than Dune, and focuses a great deal on some of the odder issues surrounding Paul's prescient visions and his sister, Alia, who is now in her teens.

    Overall, I give the story 3 stars...it's not a seminal work, like Dune, but it does follow up the original and bridge to the next few works.

    I am not as fond of the narration as I could be. There are several readers, and they each read a separate chapter. They are all great readers, and I love the idea, but it would have helped if the readers had some common ground rules. It's a minor quibble, but sometimes the characters (like Stilgar) have thick accents and at other times they do not. It makes it a little hard to keep track of who is speaking.

    Part IV of Dune

    I’ve seen some critical reviews of this second book in the Dune series. But, having read it right after re-reading Dune, I found I enjoyed it. As another commentator says, it reads like the conclusion (or “Part IV”) of Dune rather than a separate novel that stands on its own. If you read it with that in mind, and if you enjoyed Dune, you will enjoy Dune Messiah.

    Some have criticised it for getting off to a slow start with lots of dialogue and set up. I agree, but the ending was satisfying and I was able to overlook the start. Hey, there are a number of good books that get off to slow starts (Lord of the Rings, for example), right? And by the end of this one, though, I had a very hard time putting it down.

    If you liked Dune and want to know how things pan out for our friend Paul, I recommend Dune Messiah to you.

    Outstanding

    I don’t understand the negative reviews. I thought the narration was very good and the story was an extremely interesting follow up to Dune.
    Highly highly recommended.

    A Great saga marred by odd production.

    I would have preferred it if this was series was presented by a single talented reader narrating the books. I was however willing to accept what the previews state was done, a multiple reader version with different readers "performing" individual characters.

    Unfortunately what is actually delivered is a confusing third option, where sometimes a single reader narrates, and other times (seemingly at random) actors read specific characters. This disjointed production method causes nothing but distraction and prevents the listener from full immersion in the story. I could only speculate on why this inconsistent pattern is followed, but whatever the reason, the result is a less than stellar product.

    In addition, none of the actors really nails their respective parts. In fact, some are so distractingly bad (Piter for example) they cross over into embarrassing and cartoonish.

    The original Dune Saga remains one of, if not my favorite books, but I am sorry to say that this production just does not deliver. I was hoping to acquire the entire series, but I am stopping here.

    Disappointed

    I listened to this book right after finishing Dune, which I liked a lot. Sadly, I found this book to be a letdown on two important fronts. Firstly, the plot was ultra-boring. I struggled to stick with it until the end, continually hoping that something exciting or interesting would happen, but it never did.

    Secondly, the narration used a different style than in Dune. In Dune, Simon Vance was the primary narrator, and other characters were acted by different narrators. I'm a big fan of Vance and the division of roles in Dune worked well. In this book, however, the narrators took turns reading. So, for example, Vance would read for a while non-stop doing every character, then the next narrator would take over. For me, this style of narration didn't work quite as well. Every time the narrator would change, I noticed it and it took me a while to get used to how the new narrator played each character. It ended up being a distraction. Too bad.

    better than expected

    After reading a lot of the reviews here, I expected this to be pretty boring. And while I'd agree that it starts out boring, it doesn't stay boring. It picks up speed as it goes and I found myself enjoying it more than expected. I'd say the first hour is pretty boring. The second half of the book is better than the first half. Overall, I gave it a 4 as I really found myself enjoying it. I'd say it's a 3.5 but I don't see it letting me choose half a star.

    A nice continuation

    I really did love the first title in the series, and plan to continue through the rest. There are 2 parts to any review of an audio book, the story and the narration, so let's break this into two.

    1. The story. It was slow to get into, especially for a short book. It starts as a series of meetings, and slowly start pulling the story together. By about 3/4 of the way through you start to get back to what you excepted from Dune. It does a nice job telling the story of Paul, and over all was an enjoyable story. 3.5 stars.

    2. The narration. I found it more than acceptable, and much better than many books. I was a little hesitant after reading some reviews, but it was no where near as bad as I had feared. It wasn't fantastic like the first book which truely is stellar. So I can understand how this would be a led down compared to that book. Over all it worked well and was an enjoyable listen, and it did not get in the way of the book, and may have even helped. When compared to other books 4/5 stars.

    Very bad fall from Dune

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Dune was wonderful. if you can forgive a terrible book 2 because book 1 was fantastic, then this is for you.

    What was most disappointing about Frank Herbert’s story?

    Story has no heart. In Dune, characters developed depth as the story progressed around them. In Dune messiah Paul sits in his throne room as a crappy story is narrated to you. There is no story that unfolds around that action of the characters. For example, The Fremen jihad is unleashed across the universe. Oh how awful. Yet there are no good storytelling examples. There is no plot that makes you feel there is a jihad. You just have to believe there is an awful jihad.This book is full of this. You are told about things but never feel it. Imagine if in Dune all that was said about Baron Harkonnen was that he is a very bad man who is evil. You don't feel it. Dune was good because you knew Baron Harkonnen was evil by a storyline that showed he was evil.

    A Worthy Sequel

    So much plot expansion happens in this installment of the Dune series, and it's amazing. Truly a case of plans within plans, feints within feints.

    I wish the narration had been kept in the same format as the first book because there were so many more characters and events in this sequel that the changes in voices for narration became a little muddy. Other than that, this was expertly read/performed.

    AudioBook Review Only -- Disappointment after Dune

    The first audio book in the series is completely engaging. This one is a bit of a let down. Reading the book is enjoyable. Listening to this one is almost painful at times. The changing narrator is an interesting idea, but doesn't come off well in practice.

    Also, the voices this time just don't capture the story this time. Likely this book was just too much exposition for the format.

    Overall, good story, but not a great listen.

    Great Book, great readers.. but

    I really like thiy audiobook, i really like the readers Presented, But I am feeling a bit let down that the great Style of The first Dune Audiobook wasn't adapted here.

    Where they used to read each role in heated situation and a Storyteller read the Most Part here the different readers, read the whole chapters, interchanging - but still i feel a bit of the Flair of the Original audiobook lost.

    But it is Still an awesome Audiobook.

    ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

    Der zweite Band einer der besten SF Serien die je geschrieben wurden. Hat damals nachhaltig meine Weltsicht verändert...
    Sehr gut gelesen, gefällt mir.

    Was mich dagegen sehr ärgert ist die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert!
    Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart:
    Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s

    Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt.

    Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.

    Very good

    Very good part two. In comparison to the first book Dune Messiah may not have quite the depth of detail as the first book had. I do not find this an issue though. Herberts universe has after all been explained in depth in his first book. The second book is more about political skimming and the conflicts which the ability to predict future brings for a person individually.
    I enjoyed the second story and was instantly hooked by the same mystical atmosphere which I had experienced in the first book as well. It is true though that the plot is much less complicated then in Dune part 1.

    I disagree with other comments here on Audible stating that the audio quality is not what it should be. I find it is the same as with the first book.

    Excellent reading, but content not so inspiring

    I enjoyed the reading more than the content of the book itself. The plot was too fragmented, and I found some parts a bit repetitive, especially those related to the spice and the prescience powers.
    I will nonetheless continue with the third installment.

    audio drama so multiple speakers

    The audio book is good, however you should be aware, that there are multiple Speakers. So if you like the style of for example the Potter books, you might be a little disappoontes at first. But I think it is well worth the adaption to the other style.

    Not a stand alone story

    This story belongs to Dune. As a separate book it looks like a dogs tail without a dog. Read/ listen it right after the Dune.

    Great book but production is a pain...

    So, the story is beautiful, shocking, the readers are very talented but... ,

    What really kills this audiobook is that production gave the readers full chapters, with many characters, each time printing their own style on their characters, making kind of difficult to keep track of the plot unless you are taking notes... It's a waste of great material...
    Either way is a nice story so if you got into it, do it aware of this huge bug.

    The author has issues part 2 (spoiler-free)

    Part two of my reviews of the Dune books.

    Story and worldbuilding wise this is an amazing space opera. BUT and it's a bit but, the book is very, very dated and the author obviously had questionable to straight-up horrible views on girls, women, women's sexuality, lgbtq+ and more. For anyone who is considering this I will from the bottom of my heart recommend to watch the first movie instead and never touch the books. I've read the first three by now and it doesn't get better.

    Once again, the plot and story on their own are great. Yes, it gets a bit dull here and there and sometimes the politics stretch too long but overall, very intriguing worldbuilding and great ideas. But that's really where my praise stops.

    Reading this book as a woman really made me appreciate some other authors a lot more. There is so much internalized misogyny and sexism in here that I am surprised nobody ever checked up on Frank Herbert to see if he was okay. If he had been born nowadays he definitely would have been on a few incel forums. Basically, the book reads as if Herbert had never exchanged a word with an actual woman in his life and just butchered any female character down to stereotypes of either motherhood, sexuality, "beautiful fragility" or all at once, nauseating.

    I won't say anything about the plot, because of spoilers, and also because my critique doesn't lie there. There is a lot of whacky stuff happening especially towards the end, but I barely got there. The author's issues continue from the first book into this one and despite this not being a romance novel any parts of romance feel flat, sexist and very questionable at points. Paul's journey feels too fast and too slow at the same time and I was never quite sure if the author wanted us to root for him or not because I never did. Most side characters feel one-dimensional and even some of the main characters whose perspectives we get, feel very "means to an end"-ish.

    I hope the movie does a better job.

    lack of agency

    characters play out their fates, main elements of Dune are just background: spice and worms do nothing, the desert is a setting, not a character as in original Dune. None of the characters get meaningful choices, the plot seems more complex than it is: original characters exist and wait for 1 conspiracy, doomed to fail because of Paul. only the last chapter contains 2 choices that are somewhat meaningful, rest seems on rails and too enamoured with its themes.
