Book review - Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert
This is the second book from the Dune saga. The action focus on Paul Atreides that is now emperor. Throughout the book, Paul, who knows all possible futures of the human race is struggle to overcome the trap of foretelling, trying to make the correct moves in order to set things in motion on a certain path .
In the same time other forces that were having trouble with Paul ascension to the throne conspire to remove the actual emperor from throne and seize power for themselves. In order to do that and to hide themselves from Paul they use a Navigator who could hide there action from Paul’s capability of seeing the future. Although Paul sense the conspiracy, he let it happen because that suit his own plans in setting a right course to the future of human race.
In my opinion, this is one of most fascinating book from the series because is based on a moral dilemma: Paul knows that the most beneficial course of history is based on his personal drama. He will lose his position, the women he loves and the possibility to raise his children, all that only for the good of humanity. Further more he have to destroy the myth of him being the supreme being in the eyes of his most loyal subjects, the fremens. The writer focus very well on Paul emotions and the doubts that he have in choosing this particular path. Until the end you can only wonder whether Paul took the correct actions and if you could do the same being in his shoes.
