God Emperor of Dune

by Frank Herbert
God Emperor of Dune (Dune #4) - Frank Herbert 6.06   15
The epic that began with the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic DUNE continues...

More than three thousand years have passed since the first events recorded in DUNE. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune.

He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

But to achieve his final victory, Leto Atreides must also bring about his own downfall...

God Emperor of Dune is one of the weakest Dune books I've read. I was very disappointed with the quality of God Emperor of Dune. It's amazing how bad this book is. The three previous books were readable, but this book is barely worth reading. I can't recommend God Emperor of Dune to anybody, because I don't like it. I'm sure that all readers who like the first book will dislike this book.
