Children of Dune by Frank Herbert Book Summary

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

The Children of Dune are twin siblings Leto and Ghanima Atreides, whose father, the Emperor Paul Muad’Dib, disappeared in the desert wastelands of Arrakis nine years ago. Like their father, the twins possess supernormal abilities—making them valuable to their manipulative aunt Alia, who rules the Empire in the name of House Atreides.

Facing treason and rebellion on two fronts, Alia’s rule is not absolute. The displaced House Corrino is plotting to regain the throne while the fanatical Fremen are being provoked into open revolt by the enigmatic figure known only as The Preacher. Alia believes that by obtaining the secrets of the twins’ prophetic visions, she can maintain control over her dynasty.

But Leto and Ghanima have their own plans for their visions—and their destinies....

SLOW, BORING, AND TOO LONG. It was excessively long unnecessarily, sans much adventure with long boring mystical dialogue. It should have been only three hundred pages. It is painfully slow and boring, I will no longer read anymore of this series. I gave the series a try by reading the first three book, but no more, and I discourage anyone from reading them.

Even better than the last. Having read only up to this book in the Dune chronicles, Children of Dune is by far the best.

Children of Dune. Arguably the best book of the series.

3rd book is so rich and entertaining. I’ve read the first three books in the last three months, and this one is my favorite so far. Of course the 1st book is legendary in its own right…but this one has so many plot layers and even better character development & payoff. The twins are fascinating and The Preacher element makes it all the more exciting. At times the inner monologue (and dialogue) can be drawn out and overly meandering, but the twists and turns - and literal character ‘transformations’ - keep you turning the pages.

A review. Tell ‘em yourself.

Wow…. Unbelievably good read, saw the movie became obsessed and now I’m three books deep (Messiah). Such an immersive universe you can get lost in. This for me is on par with Tolkien and Lewis in the world of fantasy.

Keeps getting better. The final book in the story of Paul (as far as I know) and the beginning of a new chapter that opens up the universe of dune to endless possibilities. There was nothing in this book I didn’t enjoy and I’m excited to continue frank herberts journey.

No words. I don’t have any words to describe this book

Excellent read.... Excellent read...

Fun but confusing. Personally, I find these books intriguing, but the character development often jumps, as opposed to gradual change. And sometimes it’s hard to link. I really I Very much enjoyed the read. But I did slow at some points.

A helluva read!. This follows the Atreides children and their struggle with the legacy left for them. I’ve been devouring this series and this book was an AMAZING follow-up to Dune: Messiah. I almost put down the whole series at the end of Dune: Messiah, but now I can’t wait to read the next one and see where things lead. I’m genuinely grieving Paul Atreides in a way I didn’t expect to come from a book or two.

Awesome. I am awed by the grand scale of the continuing saga and the sometimes shocking revelations that tie back to the first 2 books. There is much commentary on government, religion and their place in humanity that is still relevant today. Herbert was a true visionary who understood human behavior, both good and bad, and the nature of the world we live in that is amazingly accurate on so many levels. It is clear he saw the dangers of our current path of a wasteful, planet destroying society that will only continue to destroy our earth if we as a race do not come together and realize we truly are all one. If we do not before it is too late we are truly doomed as a civilization. People who don’t like this book or the previous Dune Messiah, are likely looking for something lighter with the predictable “hero” and happy ending. However if you are interested, as I am, in what his whole message is and where he will take us next I recommend this book whole heartedly! I am eagerly starting the next book in the series and excited to see the likely continuing tie backs to the previous books to expose the reader to things they may not have realized when they were reading them, until Herbert masterfully gives information and insight that makes one say “ahhh, now I see it”. I believe he had the framework for the whole series in place before ever writing the first book and he grew right along with the stories as he wrote them. If you enjoy reading that requires contemplation and thought this series is for you. Superb.

Fantastic reading. Fantastic! Masterpiece it is! It inspires me to complete the whole series.

Another Dune Triumph. Paul's young family is growing and the rest of the human universe is fearful and hateful. A brilliant climax to the original trilogy.

Drier than the Desert. I couldn't wait to finish this book. First, because I wanted to find out what it was about, but also to find out if all the endless dryness of the writing was worth the time spent struggling through it. The last ten percent of the book did offer some sense of familiarity with the previous books but the other ninety percent was filled up with a Pingpong game of complicated political intrigue punctuated with annoying mythical dogma and stentorian pseudo-Arabic pronouncements. All the drama was about dynasty, jihad, and brinksmanship with very little evidence of emotional content. None of the characters were developed enough to form any empathy with. Herbert has crafted an intricate saga of complicated ideas and motivations but very little of it is relatable on a human scale. I don't think I will be interested in continuing to stagger through the rest of this arid landscape.

Incredible!. This was written the year I was born and I just read it 36 years later. What. Masterpiece!

A Good Read. A pretty good Dune sequel. It helps to read this immediately after Dune Messiah as those two books tend to feel like one story. The pacing gets a little slow and dense during the 2nd act but picks up again during the 3rd act. I enjoyed my time reading this.

Excellent!. Blew my mind on where the story went!

Simply amazing. The dune saga continues. Readers will not be disappointed.

One of the true classics of sci-fi. Just re-read this series after 30 years and still amazed at how it captures reader’s imagination...

Wow. Children of Dune is excellent. I found it to be a more interesting, and more excellent follow up from Dune Messiah.
