More than three thousand years have passed since the first events recorded in Frank Herbert's DUNE. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species. But to achieve his final victory, Leto Atreides must also bring about his own downfall . . .

    " Perhaps the last of the truly solid "Dune" books, "God-Emperor..." goes light on the action and super-sizes the religious and political philosphy. Still, a good (and, frankly, kinda necessary) follow-up to the first three books. "

    " I have learned from this book that is interesting to be a 3,000 year old worm that can see the future and contains the memories of multitudes. It's perfect sci-fi in the sense of re-imagining political and social situations/institutions. I think this is the best of all of the Dune books. "

    " God Emperor was a good read, but definitely slower than the first three Dune books. I felt that, aside from the Lord Leo, the characters in this book were pretty devoid of personality until almost halfway through the story. Once the characters started to develop further and I actually became more interested in Idaho and Moneo, the story started to lose momentum. I also think it was difficult to empathize with Leto, which made the ending of the book ultimately anti-climactic. Still, I think it was worth reading and thought the overall story was somehow both creepy and endearing. "

    " Loved this! It's 3500 years later and Leto II is transformed into basically a monster. Why? To live long enough to personally see to it that the Golden Path worked. Lots of philosophy in here (the God Emperor has had LOTS of time to think...) "
