READ God Emperor of Dune 108 Esta cuarta entrega de la saga Dune centra su trama en la figura mesiánica de Leto Atreides II hijo de Paul Atreides héroe cuya estirpe hunde sus raíces en la legendaria casa griega de los Atridas y nos lleva a través de diversos dilemas étic. Thirty five hundred years has passed since the end of the previous book Leto II I will just call him Leto for the sake of brevity has been the God Emperor of the known Universe practically all this time He is not shy about using pure despotic methods of governing when he feels like it Unfortunately with all his infinite wisdom he forgot the most important one a smart despot knows when to leave the stupid one remains in power until his subjects remove his head against his wishes obviously As a result practically everybody and their brother want Leto gone Heck I wanted him gone I can only think of two exceptions his fanatical and specially cultivated Fish Speakers and his majordomo Monteo scared into submission by constant mood changes of his not entirely human and sometimes homicidal boss Unfortunately Leto is very slow when it comes to taking a hint so he stays He continues making endless philosophical speeches about everything in a true prophet fashion in the most runaround possible way Ask the guy being about the color of the sky and you will receive a speech worth a couple of pages I assure you you will not find word blue anywhere in the answer Thus Leto committed the ultimate sin you can be a despot and sometimes your people can tolerate and even forgive you but absolutely nobody wants an Emperor who baubles non stop This leads to total rebellionThe book has an excellent beginning which made me really excited Thirty five hundred years has passed and it means all the annoying people of the first trilogy are long dead The story starts with a great action scene the only one in the book it turned out later featuring Dune rebels The philosophical speeches of Leto were uite refreshing in the beginning I loved what I was reading than the last two books and thought everybody who gave the novel low rating had no clue About 150 pages later the rebels mysteriously disappeared never to be heard again Leto s word diarrhea started to get on my nerves Blah blah blah Golden Path blah blah blah I am not a despot blah blah A normal human being can only read so much of it before it gets really old I need to add that Leto never bothers to explain what the Golden Path is about except that humanity is doomed without it Both Leto and the author himself try to convince the readers real and imaginary that the God Emperor is not a despot using exactly the same arguments every single despot in recorded history justified his behavior including the classic oneMy answer to Leto would be slightly paraphrased well known saying if you walk like a despot and uack like a despot you are a despot What else do you call a monarch with unlimited power who kills his subjects when he is in the right mood No Golden Path can change itIn the last part of the book where I get to on sheer willpower Leto finally shut up to my surprise The moment he did everybody started to behave like teens on serious hormone overdose My apologies to teens in real life this is a clich and rarely happens I mean to this extent Let me just mention that all the people in uestion were grown up adults I am not even sure this term applies to Leto I suddenly realized I became a faithful of God Emperor as I promptly went down on my knees and prayed Oh God Emperor Hear your faithful Please enlighten your undeserving worm with one of your heavenly speeches and make these kids stop Needless to say my prayer was not answered So much for God Emperor One of the first disappointments of the book was continuous recycling of poor Duncan Idaho Leto seems to be fond of resurrecting him and killing the guy the moment he showed an independent thought How many times do you want to stumble upon the same stone As many times as can fit into thirty five hundred years that is how many His personality changed dramatically in the three books he was a selfish hero completely loyal to his masters the way dogs are loyal In this book he is a lovesick teen well in mature age by years count Then again if Leto being 3509 years old acts the same there is no shame for Duncan to behave so One of the biggest plot holes is related to this guy as well To explain it I assume everybody knows Dune from the book or movies The original guy died a heroic death giving Paul and Jessica time to escape His countless clones keep his memory Yet during the first meeting of a brand new Duncan Idaho fresh from a cloning factory and Leto II the latter asks Do you remember me Duncan answer with yes Leto II was born way after the original Duncan died How the hell his clone was supposed to remember him Especially considering the fact that the current incarnation spent the majority of his time wondering what happened to previous ones There is no way the memories are shared between incarnations One fact I found hard to believe nothing much changed during 3500 years between the books Even considering that Leto suppressed all changes that many years is a lot of time May I remind you the whole recorded history of humanity took less than that and look at where we are now We do not have any wars any Sorry scrap that We go to work by flying cars Sorry scrap that too We conuered terminal diseases like cancer and AIDS Sorry I keep coming up with bad examples I guess we are still not that different from our distant ancestors who just discovered the wonders of controlled fire The whole book is way below the level of the first trilogy This is not just my opinion The original illustrator thought so too and decided a phallic symbol is needed to salvage the novel And thus the following cover was born This cover promptly ends up among the top three positions of all worst science fiction covers lists by the way This shows people have no appreciation for true art Herbert himself used similar symbolism in the novel when Leto commanded a woman dying of thirst to caress the inside folds of his worm body until water mixed with spice comes out to satisfy the woman s thirst I am not even commenting on this one So the book started on strong 4 star rating level which became 2 stars fairly fast and remained this way until the end when it ended up in 1 star territory It is not completely hopeless and Leto s ramblings are interesting until they overstay their welcome so 2 stars is the final rating Galveston of the previous book Leto II I will just call him Leto for the sake

READ God Emperor of Dune 108 Os a comprender los mitos ue necesita la humanidad y a los héroes ue los encarnan El futuro en el mundo de Dune pertenece solo a los ue son capaces de pensar por sí mismos Esta saga apasionante plantea por primera vez de forma completa racional. God Emperor of DuneBook 4 of the Dune ChroniclesBy Frank HerbertA Dune Retrospective by Eric AllenWhat do you say about the book that was so completely terrible that it so turned you off of the series that you refused to read the four books that came after it for over a decade This book is bad in a way that few things achieve Oh yes there are worse things than this book in human history and I do not mean to cheapen the horror of those atrocities but when it comes to complete and utter failures in fictional exploits this is amongst the worst By this time in his career Frank Herbert s Dune series had sold multiple millions of books He was a veritable gold mine for his publisher and so he had the power and influence to basically get anything he wanted from them As a result God Emperor of Dune is pure and complete insanity Oh but its not just normal insanity oho no Its a special sort of insanity Its the sort of insanity that happens when you give crazy way too much money power influence and creative license I like to call this kind of crazy George Lucas Syndrome Allow me to explain In 1977 George Lucas a rookie filmmaker under huge budget constraints and with heavy studio influence managed to produce one of the greatest movies of all time Though Star Wars was well recieved by the world at large his distributer still placed very harsh budget constraints on the following two films These movies were a great illustration of the concept Art from Adversity Despite all of the people telling him no all the limitations of special effects technology all of the problems with budgeting and studio executives trying to change his work he managed to produce one of the most lucrative franchises in movie history He was viewed as a filmmaking genius by many and then he made the preuels He had unlimited funds was no longer constrained by the limits of special effects technology and most importantly everyone on earth was utterly terrified to tell him no because he could very easily take his goldmine of a series elsewhere and be just as happy When you take the adversity the thing that CLEARLY created the art to begin with out of the picture you are left with a man who is completely insane making movies that are also completely insane What does this have to do with Dune you ask Plenty You see having sold millions of copies of his first three books in the Dune series Frank Herbert had enough clout with his publishers that he could have taken a dump on a blank piece of paper and they would have published it because they were utterly terrified that he would take his series elsewhere And so when he handed them the manuscript for God Emperor of Dune NO ONE SAID ANYTHING ABOUT HOW TERRIBLE IT WAS TO HIM They published it because he wrote it it had Dune in the title and people would buy it read it and claim to love it because of itSo this leaves the uestion was Herbert balls out insane from the beginning and simply constrained by his publishers and editors to create art for his first three books Or did he just do a crapton of drugs between book 3 and book 4 We may never know the answer for sureWhy is this book so bad Well lets find out shall weI can t put enough uotation marks around the word story here so I won t even try 3500 years have passed since the events of Children of Dune Leto Atreides II has become a giant sandworm with a human face and arms Yeah I ll give you a minute to wrap your mind around that You good Ok moving on then The ENTIRE plot of this book revolves around Leto talking and talking and talking and talking and talking and talking and talking He talks about being a sandworm He talks about what it means to be a sandworm He talks about why it s important that he has become a sandworm He talks about how being a sandworm fits into his plans And through all that talking HE NEVER MANAGES TO TALK ABOUT WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT TO THE PLOT OR WHY I SHOULD CARE And then he dies easily killed by his utter arrogance in believing that mere humans could never possibly rise up against him And I get a lot of people telling me I ve got it wrong on this but try reading his last few bits of dialog after falling in the water with this in mind and tell me I don t have a point If this was not what Herbert meant to convey with this dialog he sure failed at what he actually meant to get across to meThe Good Nada In fact skip this book if you plan to read this series Your life will be better for it You miss absolutely nothing that the next book does not readily explain in a few sentences and you don t have to wade through all the complete fail that this book embodiesThe Ugly First of all while Herbert s views on women were pretty apparent in his previous works he is openly sexist in this book to a huge and offensive degree He has some extraordinarily strange views on the roles women play in society what they want out of life and how their thoughts and feelings differ from those of men He devotes a large section of the book to explaining in great detail why women are inferior to men veiling it behind the guise of praising them as a gender Nice try Herbert but you FAIL to hide your complete contempt for women in general Every woman that I know that has read this book has come away from it TERRIBLY offended Women beware this book basically says that you re the scum of the universe and the source of every problem that man knows If this sort of thing offends you and believe me I m a guy and it offends ME steer clear of this bookNot only does Herbert put forward some very offensive ideas about women he also puts forth some very offensive views about homosexuals soldiers and pretty much all humanity in general Women get the worst of it here by far but soldiers and homosexuals come close on their heels He seems to have great contempt for pretty much anyone that is not exactly like he is This is an actual line from the book I have not altered it in any way All soldiers are homosexuals at heart There are so many layers of offensiveness buried in those six little words that I could write an entire essay on that alone Needless to say it is offensive to every party mentioned in multiple ways It takes true talent and bigotry to imbue such a short sentence with so many layers of insult to so many different people And let me say right here and now so that there is no mistaking Herbert s views for my own though I may come from a strong Christian background I have no problem with gay people My philosophy on life is that everyone should have the freedom to live as they see fit and it is not my place to tell them that they are doing it wrong regardless of my own personal feelings on the matter I have worked with gay people all my working life and you know what I ve learned about them They re people Just like everyone else Doing their best to live their lives in a world that is not very accepting of them They deserve to live their lives just like everyone elseEvery character in this book other than Leto exists for one purpose and one purpose alone To ask uestions that facilitate even talking from him Let me describe to you every scene in this book Leto rants for about thirty pages on his morality and plan for humanity Someone is confused by his complete insanity and asks him a uestion He then goes on at great length explaining the answer The other character is still confused and asks another uestion which facilitates yet another long and boring rant from him These characters have no personality They have no motivation They have no plans or desires of their own They exist within the plot for one purpose and one purpose only to give Leto an excuse to further explain Frank Herbert s insanityLeto is still not a sympathetic character He has personality here than he did in the previous book this is true but here he is even loathsome because of it I m sorry I do not sympathize with a grotesue mockery of humanity who goes on and on and on and on about he s the only hope of said humanity and as such has the right to severly subjugate all life in the universe under his strictures and rule He was not a likeable character to begin with and here he has become a loathsome tyrant that it is impossible to sympathize with So why should I care about a book that is primarily about him talking at GREAT LENGTH about his own personal philosophy I don t I really REALLY don t He s a terrible character and as an extension of that any story revolving around him is also terribleHerbert STILL does not seem to feel the need to explain what motivates Leto to do what he has done and why I should care about it These are basic elements of the plot of this book and the previous one that are COMPLETELY LEFT TO THE READER S IMAGINATION IF you want me to care about your character and the story revolving around him you have to tell me WHAT he is doing WHY it is important and most importantly WHY I SHOULD CARE These are basic storytelling elements that Herbert completely FAILED to employIn conclusion this book is awful It s a special kind of awful the sort of which you will rarely find in fiction It s basically a thinly disguised excuse for Herbert to give his own philosophies on life If you want to write a book of philosophy by all means go ahead and do so But don t try to tell me it s the next installment of your epic science fiction series This book gets ZERO stars but since the rating does not show up here on Goodreads with zero I threw one up there It feels FAR longer than it actually is It centers around a character that is completely and utterly loathesome without a SINGLE redeeming characteristic and I m supposed to feel for this character Yeah sorry Herbert but no I don t I really REALLY don t This book is terrible in a way that few books are And worst of all it s boring I can forgive bad writing I can forgive a bad story I can forgive wooden characters It is my opinion that one of the truly unforgivable things that a storyteller can do is to tell a boring story Only the most hardcore fans of the Dune series will likely be able to find any enjoyment here to any casual readers I typicaly recomend that this book be skipped over because it really is THAT bad Check out my other reviews Aztec of DuneBook 4 Herzenstimmen of the Dune ChroniclesBy Frank HerbertA Dune Retrospective by Eric AllenWhat do you say about the book that
