Trailer é Chapterhouse: Dune PDF by é Frank Herbert Chapterhouse Dune was the last Dune novel that Frank Herbert completed and published before his death in 1986 Though he had written notes and the series would continue with his son Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson, most Dune fans regard the six Frank Herbert publications as the original Series After many books written since his death, pundits have stated that the only notes left is a post it note that says, write books In this installment the direction taken in Heretics of Dune, the fifth book in the series, published in 1984, continues with the Bene Gesserit front and center Heretics had followed a thousand five hundred year hiatus following the events in the fourth novel, God Emperor of Dune published in 1981 and had taken a new Buddy read with AthenaSeek freedom and become captive of your desires Seek discipline and find your liberty The Honoured Matres have returned with their full strength from the Scattering, and their fleets are assaulting all the worlds that once made up the old Empire at the core of the universe The nobility and the Ixians have fallen, and the one force resisting the relentless invasion is the now legendary sisterhood of the Bene Gesserit Heretics of Dune ended with one of the most dramatic and unexpected plot twists in science fiction, and this sequel takes up where the last book left off Unfortunately, the first eighty percent of this book were a total chore to get through Little or nothing happened, the setting and the characters were unremarkable and dull, and not even the writing was particularly good After having read those eighty percent, I was or less ready As with much of Frank Herbert s other writing, Dune excluded, this one is a novel notable and worthy on the realm of ideas He never stints on ideas He might get slighly sloggish and lose the thread of the plot while we plod around in the ideas, but there s always great scenes and always great blow out reveals The original classic of Dune has none of these faults It is a classic and imminently readable from page one and is still my favorite book of all time.
So what about this one Is it worth reading for everyone else It s book 6 in the very impressive and automatically Epic series that encapsulates over five thousand years from the events of Dune, ending with the centric viewpoint of the Bene Gesserit after the tyranny of Paul s son and the great diaspora that scattered all the peoples of the galaxy after his death The planet Dune is e

Unlike the previous books this one continues the plot line of the previous ones books 1 4 had definite endings, but book 5 did not So the Bene Gesserit pulled back to regroup and get ready for a counterattack The regrouping only took them 10 years to do so while the new menace appearing out of nowhere continued to capture or destroy their home bases Can we say after 5000 years of preparations the Bene Gesserit were not exactly ready Sure we can It is also completely unclear whether the new threat was a part of a fabled Golden Path Leto II never bothered to explain it or whether Frank Herbert has pulled it out of his ass to keep the series going I finally finished the series and the only emotion I feel is a great relief, otherwise I am completely drained by my efforts not to DNF this one Sufficient to say, I am no Book 3 starsAudio CD 3 starsIn Dune, Frank Herbert achieved a near perfect balance of story, character and exposition In fact, the story and characters expressed the themes of the book, and Herbert avoided long, philosophical discursions Dune is a self contained novel needing no prequels or sequels However, Herbert had to say and produced five further novels set in the Atreides Imperium that were interesting to the compulsively completist amongst us and I number myself one in this case but came no where near the power and passion of the original IMO, the series hit its nadir with God Emperor The two subsequent novels Heretics of Dune and the one under discussion recaptured a bit of that original power though they, too, suffered from far too much plodding, philosophical distractions.
For the most part, I l I am a reader who sometimes enjoys books that make me work hard This book this series is one of those I loved it, but I fully understand that not everyone will.
In addition to being one of the greatest science fiction sagas ever, the Dune Chronicles were a massive sociological thought experiment on Herberts part, and I for one am thankful he had the time to share his thoughts with us These books especially the later ones are the kind you have to put down from time to time to just think about and then re read the last few pages You will have to refer to the appendix for definitions and clarifications If you manage to finish all six books, you will find that parts of them come back to you unbidden years later, and you will pleasantly sit and wonder at the meaning of some passa 3.

5 stars After loving the first five books in the series, I was a little disappointed in this last installment of the Dune Chronicles by Frank Herbert While I have always been a big fan of Herbert s heavy use of dialogue and philosophical argument to advance the themes of the story, I thought that its use in this volume was not as crisp and felt a bit too plodding That said, I did like it and it is certainly not a bad book, but it does suffer in comparison to the previous installments Now I have to decide if I am going to sample any of the subsequent novels by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson.
The Desert Planet Arrakis, Called Dune, Has Been Destroyed Now The Bene Gesserit, Heirs To Dune S Powers, Have Colonized A Green World And Are Turning It Into A Desert, Mile By Scorched Mile In This, The Final Book In The Dune Chronicles, Herbert Again Creates A World Of Breathtakingly Evolved Characters And The Contexts In Which To Appreciate Them The Richness Of Detail And Perspective Fascinates, While The Multi Layered Plot Evolves As Pages Turn Riveting From End To End, The Legend Lives On In The Greatest Science Fiction Epic Of All Time This 6th and final book in the Dune saga that Frank Herbert wrote before his death in 1986 stands as one of the best in the entire series Many have complained that it doesn t go anywhere for the first 150 pages or so, but I think it does There are all of these seemingly unrelated plot threads that slowly but surely converge such that by the time you re halfway through the book, it all makes sense The last half of this book is a mixture of intrigue and action that left me breathless and unable to put the book down until I was finished The story here continues from the end of Heretics of Dune, with the Bene Gesserit hidden on their base planet of Chapterhouse, hiding and regrouping from the rampaging Honored Matres who hunt and slaughter them across the galaxy Howev This is probably the best book so far in my opinion Excellent storyline and well written, and gripping to the end
