Heretics of Dune
Heretics of Dune | Frank Herbert
9 posts | 33 read | 13 to read
With more than ten million copies sold, Frank Herbert's magnificent Dune books stand among the major achievements of the human imagination. In this, the fifth and most spectacular Dune book of all, the planet Arrakis--now called Rakis--is becoming desert again. The Lost Ones are returning home from the far reaches of space. The great sandworms are dying. And the children of Dune's children awaken from empire as from a dream, wielding the new power of a heresy called love...

“I remember friends from wars all but we forgot.
All of them distilled into each wound we caught.
Those wounds are all painful places where we fought.
Battles never left behind, ones we never sought.
What is it that we spent and what was it we bought?” #Remember #QuotsyNov18

“Bureaucracy destroys initiative. There is little that bureaucrats hate more than innovation, especially innovation that produces better results than the old routines. Improvements always make those at the top of the heap look inept. Who enjoys appearing inept?” #Innovation #QuotsyAug18

"Taraza was the perpetual devil's advocate and this had become a dominant force in the entire Sisterhood, a natural consequence of her elevation to Mother Superior. Opposition developed easily in that environment.

As the Sufis said: Rot at the core always spreads outward.

What they did not say was that some rots were noble and valuable."

#AprilTBR plans are finishing library e-loans, plus Heretics of Dune & then Chapterhouse Dune. Maybe Hunters of Dune, but I'll probably stop with the original books for now. BH & KJA weren't quite able to capture Frank Herbert's magic. After that? 🤷‍♀️I'm a mood reader but I do have a #TBR list for challenges I'm doing this year. One of those books should help cure my inevitable #epicreread #bookhangover once I finish Dune. #ReadingResolutions

Godmotherx5 I was talking to my siblings about Dune this past weekend. None of read it but we are curious. 2y
TK-421 @Godmotherx5 Dune is one of my all-time favourites. If you like epic sci-fi/fantasy, give it a try! 2y

Like all of the series so far, a very smart book. So many subjects and so much thought provoking material. I don't know why I'm always surprised it takes me longer to get through these.

Also, the closest thing to a cliffhanger I've experienced in the series. Kinda cool.

God - Emperor, Leto Atreides II ❤ WOW. What a character! He is all knowing, incredibly pragmatic and intelligent. And not afraid to make hard decisions so that the human kind can evolve to a better place, even if it means he has to torture it for eons.
