Frank Herbert's Children of Dune is a three-part science fiction miniseries written by John Harrison and directed by Greg Yaitanes, based on Frank Herbert's novels Dune Messiah (1969) and Children of Dune (1976). First broadcast in the United States on March 16, 2003, Children of Dune is the sequel to the 2000 miniseries Frank Herbert's Dune (based on Herbert's 1965 novel Dune), and was produced by the Sci Fi Channel.

Dune Messiah, Frank Herbert's first sequel to Dune, was published in 1969. By 1976, Frank Herbert had completed his long-awaited sequel, which he titled Children of Dune

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. By 1976, Frank Herbert had completed his long-awaited sequel, which he titled Children of Dune. A four-part Analogy serialization of the novel early that year was a resounding success, causing issues to sell out at news-stands. Letters poured in from excited fans who loved the story.

Published in 1965, Frank Herbert’s Dune is a classic science fiction novel about Paul Atreides. Paul is fifteen years old and is small for his age, but he is smart: he already sees the future in his dreams sometimes. House Atreides is preparing to leave its home of twenty-six generations, Castle Caladan, for Arrakis, a desert planet more commonly known as Dune. This planet is home to the spice, a substance that gives people a number of abilities, such as the ability to navigate safe routes through space.

Children of Dune book. Frank Herbert did it in all three books I read so far. What is good for a classic of science fiction should be good for m. . The desert planet of Arrakis has begun to grow green and lush.

Frank Herbert's Children of Dune, adapting both novels Dune Messiah and Children of Dune novel by Frank Herbert, is a sequel to the miniseries produced by the United States-based Sci Fi Channel. It was directed by Greg Yaitanes, adapted for television by John Harrison, with music by Brian Tyler.

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?
MEGA FREEDY
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?
