Initially selling over 75,000 copies, it became the first hardcover best-seller ever in the science fiction field. Dune is considered one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time, and Frank Herbert left a lasting legacy to fans and family alike.

Dune Messiah, Frank Herbert's first sequel to Dune, was published in 1969

Dune Messiah, Frank Herbert's first sequel to Dune, was published in 1969. In that book, he flipped over what he called the "myth of the hero" and showed the dark side of Paul Atreides. Would Children of Dune be an even bigger critical disappointment than Dune Messiah? There had never been a hardcover science fiction best seller, so Putnam management proceeded with extreme caution. Suddenly the Analog results provided David Hartwell with the necessary ammunition.

The science fiction masterpiece continues in the major event,( Los Angeles Times) Children of Dune.With millions of copies sold worldwide, Frank Herberts Dune novels stand among the major achievements of the human imagination and one of the most significant sagas in the history of literary science fiction. The Children of Dune are twin siblings Leto and Ghanima Atreides, whose father, the Emperor Paul MuadDib, disappeared in the deserts of Arrakis. Like their father, they possess supernormal abilitiesmaking them valuable to their aunt Alia, who rules the Empire. If Alia can obtain the secrets of the twins prophetic visions, her rule will be absolute. But the twins have their own plans for their destiny.

Once more an empire stands on the brink of revolution. Alia rules as regent, but without her brother’s gift of prescience she is forced to rely on more mundane methods to cling to power, while voices from the past return to oppose her. Elsewhere House Corrino sets their own plan in motion, preying on the discontent in a vain hope to reclaim their throne. And in the center of it all, Paul’s children, Leto and Ghani. As pre-born they came into the world fully aware, containing echoes of every ancestor, a multitude that they must overcome if they are to have any hope of undoing the fate forced upon mankind by their father’s prescience.

A series of character vignettes ease audiences back into the familiar world of Dune, setting the stage for a complex web of political intrigue. Within each chapter details are carefully doled out, making a minor mystery of the context, before giving way to dialogue and monologue driven scenes. Audiences are challenged to read between the lines and make their own conclusions about the characters, who speak with many layers of meaning.

At times the diverse plots can be a little daunting. Chapters rarely offer more than a scant reference to what’s come before. Instead they consistently plough ahead, engaging a variety of philosophical questions about the moral and utilitarian nature of existence, as well as the burdens of knowledge and duty. Alternating perspectives counterbalance the slow pacing of the narrative, and offer opposing views on the underlying issues. Characters are recognized as both sympathetic and callous, though gradually characters are cast as either villain or hero, paving the way for an ending that is satisfying, if a little anticlimactic, and leaves much unanswered. A strong waypoint that paves a new path for the rest of the series.

Every story has its tragedies, and the Dune series is full of them. What becomes of Paul and Alia? What is the Golden Path? Why is it so important? This is all high drama and tragedy worthy of Shakespeare and Homer - and no, I don’t think I’m over exaggerating, since I think Herbert dug deep into those classics to create this three-part story. (I’m ignoring the next three books at the moment)

This is the Twin’s story, and the wrapping of up Paul’s, and only the beginning of this fantastic universe of eugenically bred rulers and their people, religion and biodomes, prescience and free will, the ultimate goal of the Dune series. It’s a must read.
The first Dune book was outstanding. Just a masterpiece. Thoroughly enjoyable. If all you know of Dune was that hatchet job of a movie from the 80s you owe it to yourself to read this book.

The second Dune book was also very good. Many negative reviews for it but I enjoyed.

Children of Dune is where the series took a turn for me and I was no longer interested in reading more about this world. I pushed through the last quarter of the book just to finish it.
Don't buy the Gollancz edition, see attached images. I stuck it out for about 100 pages but now I'm seeking a refund or exchange for a different edition. There are many problems with the version from Gollancz, namely:

- The text is blurry and blotchy, very difficult to read without very bright light. Normal text sometimes looks italicized, and it's hard to tell when certain passages were meant to be italicized or not

- The margins are terrible. The text goes almost all the way into the binding, so you have to really pull the pages apart to be able to read it. There is a lot of extra margin on the outside of the pages... if they just moved the text closer to the outside of the book, it would be fine...

- There are some bad typos. Normally a typo is not a big deal because you can tell what it was supposed to say, but Dune contains so much unique language and fantasy elements that it's impossible to know sometimes... it could be a typo or it could be a new word?
Excellent fantasy/sci-fi work of a genius. So many metaphysical layers, based upon many known philosophies and renowned works from acknowledged thinkers. A more vast universe i have never experienced, in terms of character development, cultural development, basically on all essential layers you would expect from a possible evolutionary path. Based upon Heberts own premisses, everything corresponds perfectly and entwines into a metaphysical fairytale without equal. This tale negates the boundaries of time and space, language and concept, subject object relationship, and threads into the infinite. Here you experience the formation and manipulation of societies over eons and religious origins, from myth to truth. Everything is reflected and the narratives spread from antagonists to protagonists, to spectators, historians, and so on.
Highly recommended.
I've been immersed in the Dune universe here lately. Read the original Dune trilogy back in the 1970's, then the Frank Herbert sequels in the 1980's. In the last number of months I began chronologically with the Brian Herbert/Ken Anderson books, starting with the Butlerian Jihad, recently completing Children of Dune and now reading God Emperor of Dune. Children of Dune is excellent, my hope is that humankind progresses further than that what is described in the way we treat one another, though today's days makes me wonder . . . Frank Herbert artfully weaves an inner and outer journey into a captivating tale . . . well worth the read, I recommend Children of Dune highly without reservation.
This was a very difficult book to read and follow. The jumping from mind to mind confusing at times. The premise was interesting and characters fascinating, but the mystical stuff and use of Arabic words (only some of which I understand) distracted from the story. So now I am finished, and I still don't get a lot of it. I wonder if there are cliff notes?
