Description

Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad'Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert's next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later, after Paul's armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times best-selling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.

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.

And 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?"

Paul of Dune is a novel everyone will want to read and no one will be able to forget.

JUST OK, reluctant 4 stars....

Decently written but unremarkable Dune rehash, meant to pick up where Dune left off, that never manages to engage. No further insights into the vividly drawn characters from Dune, in fact they all seem rather sterile. Paul & company are disenchanted with the direction things have taken, and you will be too. If you're a Dune junkie, you may want to read this. Otherwise, probably wise to skip.

Great Listen but...

This will get slammed by some because it's not Frank Herbert, well guess what? Frank is long gone and there was only one of him.
Brian and Kevin are their own writers and they carry on the Dune experience in their own very exciting fashion, I really like it because while reflecting Franks original concept they really add some great ideas into the original story line. So from some of the purest I think there will be alot of gripes but for the rest of us we shall just enjoy a great book that carries on the amazing world of DUNE!

Good back stories but not much more

A significant portion of this book where back stories of young Paul usually consisting of events that occurred prior to Dune. As others have said there is very little that adds to the story that skipping this book will make you miss. This book was written as an insert between Dune and Dune Messiah and it is clear in that respect. I think of this book as Dune 1.5 if Dune Messiah is Dune 2.

I see this book as a summer extension of a TV series. Missing this book will not cause those who follow the real seasons (Dune) and (Dune Messiah) will miss.

A Prescient Filling in of the Gaps in Dune Lore

A strong, well-paced story that leaps back and forth provides a deeply and richly layered history of what made Paul Atreides the Kwisatz Haderach and a flawed, even tormented, but ultimately decisive emperor of the known galaxy.

It took me two tries ...

It took me two tries to start listening to this book - I just couldn't stand the religious zealots...then it got good - I really liked the intricate story around the Fenrings and bitterness of Shaddam. I have been a fan of the Dune universe for a very long time and I really enjoy the expanded universe that has been woven with the prequels and now this interstitial tale - and it looks like more to come. I think this story was needed - and it helped to make sense of the jump from the noble son of a duke to a messiah for which a jihad is fought.

Had some problems at first with the 2nd and 3rd parts as my bookmarks on the Zune (kept showing me Chapter 1) and my machine was not holding my bookmark when I shut the book off and had to fast forward to my position everytime I restarted.

Paul of Dune

This book is excellent in that it tells of the events in detail to set you up for Dune Messiah and the rise and fall of Paul M'uab dib. All the problems and challenges he face as the new emperor of the known universe. I have to say I really didn't like Paul in this book but it was so exciting to listen to!!!

Why oh why did Frank Herbert die

I foolishly keep hoping that these guys will improve and pay proper homage to Frank's masterpiece. But again I am sorely dissapointed. I don't understand how you can take characters that we have come to love and them them so unloveable. If you love Frank Herbert, don't bother with this.

Good Filler

Yes, this book is just filler and yes you could go from Dune straight to Dune Messiah but you will be missing a very good story. There are no nail-biting revelations, Paul of Dune just allows you to have more time with the characters that you have come to love and hate.

Just Filler

It's like a filler episode of your favorite TV show. Only get this one if you're a Dune junky and want to fill out your collection. otherwise you can honestly skip this one.

Possibly the worst of the series

I say possibly only because I couldn’t bother to finish Winds Of Dune. I just really hate it when someone decides to retcon another authors work, even when your father is that author.

Füllt Erzähllücken

Dieser Band schließt Lücken: Sowohl zwischen dem Ende der frühen Chroniken und dem Band 1 der Originalserie als auch zwischen dem Band 1 und Band 2 des Originals.
Hier wird im Rückbick die Geschichte des Assassinenkrieges zwischen Ecaz/Atreides und dem Herrscher von Grumman ebenso beschrieben wie der heilige Krieg der Fremen und die Palastintrigen am Hofe Pauls.
Schön fand ich, dass viele Charaktere aus den frühen Chroniken als auch aus der Originalserie wieder auftauchen und mehr Gewicht bekommen. Schön ist hier vor allem zu sehen, wie es Hasimir Fenring und seiner Frau nach der Schlacht von Arrakeen erging. Ebenso wird in der Rückschau die Geschichte der Atreides und der Schwertmeister von Ginaz weitergesponnen. Nur das Finale des Assassinenkrieges enttäuscht leicht (Schlacht schnell zu Ende...=
Dafür erhält man Einblicke in Pauls Gedankenwelt (warum schafft er mit seinen Fähigkeiten keinen Frieden und Wohlstand?...). Gut gelungen!!!!
