God Emperor of Dune by Frank Herbert Book Summary

Book Four in the Magnificent Dune Chronicles—the Bestselling Science Fiction Adventure of All Time

Millennia have passed on Arrakis, and the once-desert planet is green with life. Leto Atreides, the son of the world’s savior, the Emperor Paul Muad’Dib, is still alive but far from human. To preserve humanity’s future, he sacrificed his own by merging with a sandworm, granting him near immortality as God Emperor of Dune for the past thirty-five hundred years.

Leto’s rule is not a benevolent one. His transformation has made not only his appearance but his morality inhuman. A rebellion, led by Siona, a member of the Atreides family, has risen to oppose the despot’s rule. But Siona is unaware that Leto’s vision of a Golden Path for humanity requires her to fulfill a destiny she never wanted—or could possibly conceive....

Alright but.... ...not nearly as good or fulfilling as the previous Dune entries. I finished the book and honestly felt as if I had wasted some of my time with this. Still well written and has that "Dune" flavor, I just felt the narrative meandered around a bit too much.

Great, but don't start here. I'm not going to give away any of the plot. Just know anyone considering this book needs to keep the preceding books downloaded. This is a very complex story that brilliantly investigates and questions the purpose of religion. Also be aware, in spite of some homosexual undertones, Frank Herbert demonstrates some anti-gay views in the book.

As remembered. Probably the tenth time that I've enjoyed this journey into the latter part of Leto Atreides II universe, and the first viewed on a screen rather than on paper. Also the first revisit in more than a decade. The experience was more engaging and difficult to put down than during my first read. Lost sleep, which has always been the indicator of my interest in any novel. Frank Herbert at his absolute best!!!

Good read. Frank Herbert rarely disappoints. Great continuation of the story.

A New Chapter Begins. It's centuries later and Leto is no longer completely human, which creates complex situations for the Dune universe. This, the fourth book in the series and the first of the second trilogy, is right up there with Dune itself as far as intrigue, characterizations and intelligence. As others have touched on, please read the first three books first, otherwise you'll be completely lost.

Redemption. I was impressed by book 1 and then decidedly unimpressed by books 2 & 3. And then this! Wow! I have a newfound respect for Herbert and his insight into human behavior and the machinations of the powerful that even the first book only provided glimpses of. While the story itself is not for everyone, let those with eyes read how deep Herbert's thinking goes. I have so many thoughts that have yet to be provoked by re-readings. I will definitely come back to this book again and again.

Dune and sacrifice.. This segment in Dune folklore and history is remarkable in that the author explores deeply the personal flaws and emotions of nearly all main characters. The character studies are deeper than the previous books, as far as I remember. The characters are so involving you tend to ignore the descriptions of the planet Arakis, and the technological marvels of this future age. It's all psychology and subplots, intricate and at times very personal. There is also interesting contrasts between altruistic and selfish characters that add to the emotional involvement of the reader. Even in the most selfish characters you can find compassion and forgiveness for their actions. The self sacrifice of the emperor is moving from the beginning of the book to the very end. To enjoy this book to its fullest, you need to have read the previous Dune books. These new characters of this book owe their complexity and motivations to the Dune legacy started with Paul Muad'Dib.

Slowly disinterested as the narrative moves forward.. I was excited to start the previous books (2 & 3) after Dune. They had natural connective tissue and made you want more. When I got to God Emperor yes indeed was it set thousands of years after Paul’s world but it made you feel as if Frank Herbert’s cousin was writing this from a different planet. The dialogue is simple and lost its more nuanced approach to explaining peoples motives, feelings, interactions. It’s bad, this is not a good book. The ending (no spoilers) is not climatic and leaves you thanking the gods it’s over instead of wanted more.

Took me for a ride!. This was a strong book, a lot of info dumping, but a strong book. It really changed the way I look a things. I also saw some people judging this book prematurely. I think people must remember context and read it all the way through before forming judgments

Slow and Amazing. A great read full of romance and thought provoking moments.

Status Quo Shaken Up. Pretty good story. At first I thought I would be lost or confused since it takes place 1,000s of years after the first 3 books. However, Herbert does a good job getting readers use to this new status quo of the Dune Universe. It’s different, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. I still think the first book is the best up to this point, but I have yet to be disappointed by the series so far.
