Finished this #Audiobook today!
A good continuation to the story, as we follow Paul and his people through the years!

To be honest, I enjoyed the second book even more than I did the first one. It has so much depth, takes such close looks to the characters thoughts and feelings, without slowing down the story. A great book from tge beginning to the end ❤️

Buechersuechtling It‘s really long, long ago that I read those books but I remember that I absolutely loved them. 3w

Not usual for me to have two #Audiobooks going at once, but these are the current listens!

Megabooks In Pieces is great! 1mo
CrowCAH @Megabooks it does have some great writing and turn of phrase. A little melancholy, but that just might be early childhood. I finally got to her acting career start. 1mo

You will find a different side of Paul Atredies in this book. A lot happens that I believe sets us up for Children of Dune. I am not sure whose side I am on, if I find a character I trust. This is turning out to be a great series.

And this is the rest! 😁 I already have “Dune” itself, and now *yells with an echoey boom into the stormy night with raised arms* my collection is almost complete 😆! I would have bought the rest of the installments, but the store didn‘t have them in stock. I think I‘m missing the last one of the main series and the last one from the Butlerian series. I just adore these covers, and they‘re in my favorite format-size. 🥰

Have you read any?!

Hooked_on_books I‘ve never had an interest in this series, but I do love the covers of the top two rows. Very appealing. 7mo
TheSpineView I have read 4. 7mo
DGRachel I bought the first one because a couple of my favorite authors reference it as one of their favorite books, but I haven‘t gotten to it yet. 7mo

twohectobooks Love those covers! If I hadn‘t spent such a long time collecting the previous set of paperback covers I‘d definitely be buying this one. Planning a Dune reread this year but haven‘t gotten to it yet. 7mo
Soubhiville Wow, those are great! I keep meaning to read Dune someday... one of these days! 7mo
Branwen Gorgeous covers! 😍 7mo
vivastory I've read the first one. I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see what Denis Villeneuve's adaptation looks like. 7mo
sudi I love these covers, i read Dune last year for #garbingo. But haven't read the rest of the series yet. 7mo
sudi @vivastory i'm excited for that too. And it has such a huge cast too. 7mo

Felt like I was on Arrakis sitting in the sunshine on my back porch today...

I love the mystical universe Herbert imagined and the story he tells within it. Kinda wish it had a glossary too 😅 but it sure leaves you with a lot to think about...

Did not go in expecting a “political thriller” - but I liked that is where Herbert took it. However, I feel like the women of this story were not nearly as developed as the men - specifically Alia. She had such potential that I feel Herbert did not consider...

Finally took time to finish part two of the saga and (again) LOVED IT! This time fronting as a political thriller F Herbert skips from the Muad‘dibs ascent to power in book one directly to the breaking point of the Atreides Empire. A deep, diverese and poetic meditation on religion, motherhood, love and death.

Heideschrampf @BookBabe haha, just some german breakfast staples. Deli lunch meats and cold cuts can be found at any supermarket meat counter (usually while waiting behind a granny ordering „two slices of this, two slices of this, one slice of this...“) haha. This is Milanese Salami (+?), liver paté (Leberwurst) with chives, roast pork with pepper crust (+?), Appenzeller cheese (+cress) and some hummus (+cress) toasts. I just like putting crunchy things ontop (edited) 2y

A lot less action then the first book.
If you enjoy politics and mind games this is for you.
Its a slow build but past the half way point it picks up. The ending is worth it.
I loved it, but it takes patience to love.
7.5/10

#MagicalMarch #Wrapup #ReadingResolutions #MarchStats 6 books this month vs 4 last month & I'm on track for my Goodreads goal. I didn't make progress on any of the other reading challenges I'm doing this year because I've been binging on the Dune series, one of my all-time fave series. Once I'm done with my #epicreread, I'll get back to the challenges. #BestReadofMarch is a tie between Dune Messiah & Children of Dune. #MarchinBooks

I'm a mood reader so I rarely stick to a TBR plan, but I know what I'll be reading this month! The #DuneBuddyRead was the perfect kickoff to an #EpicReread of the Dune series. I knew I wouldn't be able to just read the first book! I'm almost through Dune Messiah and will be starting Children of Dune tomorrow, although I will probably reread part 1 of Dune to refresh my memory for the discussion on March 3. #MarchTBR #ReadingResolutions

Gezemice Nice. I started Dune Messiah but I had the opposite reaction - Dune was a lot better and I decided I don‘t need to water it down. At least not right now. 2y
GarthRanzz I was thinking of doing this as well; reading the rest of the series after the buddy read. I still might add one each month. Never got beyond the original trilogy. 2y

At long last, I finished this second chapter in the Dune series. I get frustrated with the scenes deep within Paul's head, but I love Chani and Alia and the poetic writing style. Perhaps I should have read it aloud. It was refreshing to be reminded though of the vast and terrible purpose - this story spans generations.

Speaking of Blade Runner 2049, its director Denis Villeneuve is attached to the inevitable Dune reboot. But based on how brilliantly he made a sequel that captures the look and feel of another director's singular vision, I'd much rather see him do a film version of Dune Messiah as a direct continuation of David Lynch's Dune. Let Lynch produce, and bring back Kyle McLachlan as an older Paul Atreides.

Dune Messiah is an impressive follow-up. While not as good as the third, it's still a compelling story that continues the arc of Paul's rise and fall. I can't say enough about how smart these books are--the plots, counter-plots, and political sparring have a Roman quality to them. Dune Messiah will appeal to just about anyone with an interest in anthropolgy, religion, and politics. 8/10 stars.

I planned to get a new book at our local bookstore today, but stopped at our used bookstore 1st to check something for the kids. While there, I snagged the 2nd Dune book & had a fantastic conversation with the owner about Frank Herbert. The owner was very knowledgeable & let me know all the books Herbert wrote that are set in our state. By the time we were done, I didn't have time to go to the other store, but it was worth it. Plus, book mail!

Purchased these "used" yesterday. I haven't read Dune since my first time in 2000. This is the 1990 edition. The book itself might have been read once, maybe. It's in excellent condition. I've never read Dune Messiah or the others. The book itself looks like it's never been read.
