I don't really get the hate for this book. It feels essential to the story, and is also a fun read. It's really good if you enjoy political machinations and don't feel like you need to understand everything right off the bat.

Douze ans après les événements relatés dans le premier épisode du cycle de Dune, Paul "Muad'Dib" Atreides règne sur l'Imperium après un jihad qui a vu ses fidèles Fremens répandre sa religion à travers l'univers et abattre ses ennemis. Mais la fin approche pour le fils du duc Leto, une fin qu'il va précipiter. Ce deuxième épisode de la saga traite principalement deux thèmes : d'une part le pouvoir de prescience de Paul, ses limites et ses dangers ; d'autre part la religion comme pilier et outil d'un gouvernement. "Prenez garde au chaos de la démocratie", s'exclame Alia, la propre soeur de l'Empereur !

It wasn't as exciting as the original, but it was an OK read. The book had it's ups and downs and I had a feeling that author sometimes didn't have a perfectly clear idea of what does he want to achieve, but I had heard that Dune Messiah was sort of bridging work in order to turn standalone book into a series. I guess the future will show if it succeeded.

A fun mind bender! I found it both more of a thriller and more introspective. While you definitely still identify with the protagonist in this story, it remains unclear who is good and who is evil, if anyone is. That made it much more interesting to me.
