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 not impressed The biggest problem for me was the complete lack of any even remotely interesting characters I became convinced Frank Herbert is unable to create a good character even if his life depended on it The only decent one was Paul in the first book That particular book became a classic of science fiction Coincidence I do not think soWe have a conflict between two sides One side is a typical power hungry generic villain readers saw countless number of times practically everywhere and the other side consists of literally heartless cold bloodied automations who weeded all the emotions out of themselves during their than 5000 year history Those girls think nothing about sacrificing complete planets with their inhabitants when it suit them by the way Is it any wonder I could not care less about anybody I already mentioned the atrocities committed by supposedly good guys I had to give it to the series though it makes a wonderful job of desensitizing the readers Sufficient to say I was not shocked by a child rape obviously committed in the name of a Greater Good after what I have seen before in the series To Herbert s credit after the previous book he realized nobody would care about completely emotionless characters so some of them began rediscovering said emotions but for me it was too little too late The vast majority of the novel is spent on philosophical ideas about government bureaucracy and other related high topics Too bad nobody remembered the little people who did the thankless job of providing comfortable living to the philosophers After all of the philosophizing I finally came to promised action on the last 70 pages To my complete disappointment it all happened behind the scenes which is not surprising because the rest of the book simply did not leave enough space for anything else Please note that I am not criticizing the fact that the tale stopped practically in the middle of a sentence as Frank Herbert died before he wrote the continuation The book and thus the series end in an unresolved cliffhanger There is a big lesson here if a writer ends a book with one heshe better have the next one with some resolution ready You might get hit by a bus sorry but this is life or just hit a writer block and you end up with an army of pissed off fans Speaking about cliffhangers this book is guilty of me changing the definition of the word A cliffhanger is when something ends in the middle of an action and you care about what happens next I already mentioned I could not care less about every single character in the book so for me it was not a cliffhanger just unresolved plot lines Now would be a good time to speak about the whole series I have to give a credit where it is due it makes a wonderful job in sense that you can stop after any book except book 5 and have a complete tale Do you want to read about Paul s struggle against the Emperor and Baron Harkonnen Read the first book Do you want to have a conclusion of Paul s tale Read first two books Do you want to have a conclusion of Atreides direct influence on Dune Read first three books Do you want to see the conclusion of Dune tale Read first four books By the way in case you have not figure this out this book has practically nothing in common with Dune books except for some names none of the action even takes place on that planet All I want to say here is that you will not have the right idea about Frank Herbert s idea about Dune if you stop after the first book like countless people did The first trilogy might serve though I finished the series and now like countless hipsters of sixtieth they were not called that then can annoy people around me by constantly saying The spice must flow I earned this privilege by my hard work Speaking about which I now know that if you say this you miss the point of the series completely as it is not about the spice It sounds cool though first million times it was used after this it overstayed its welcome just like the series after book 4

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 timeSo 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 effectively destroyed at the end of Heretics of Dune and only a single sandworm and some sandtrout was lifted from the planet to be the seed of a new place where the Spice can be produced This is especially important after the Bene Tleilaxu were also destroyed or partially submerged under the auspices of the Gesserit after the Honored Matres rampaged through the known universe This book takes up the new clones of Teg and Duncan but mostly revolves around the conflicts between the Bene Gesserit and the Honored Matres Each side has taken prisoners and tries to subvert the captives The Bene Gesserit are than slightly successful at the task than the knock off Bene Gesserit Honored Matres despite the others being wildly dominant and deadly in combatWhat we have is a novel that reminds me a great deal of the later Wheel of Time books with Egwaine in the White Tower only I have to point out that Chapterhouse Dune came out first We know that Jordan was a big fan of Dune and stole a tone of great ideas from Herbert so this shouldn t be too surprising but rather than a 5 6 enormous spread of books Herbert accomplishes a success from below story in a single novel The teaching and the subversion is the real main story in Chapterhouse Don t let the cool space battles and space opera fool you This is a story of fantastic women doing fantastic things the undisputed masters of the galaxy and a massive conflict between the returning diaspora offshoot of the Bene Gesserit and the main line that stayed behindOn that level it s still a great tale despite my other issues with itAnything this complex and full of great observations about human nature politics and even love should not be discounted lightly It s super dense with fantastic ideas on every page and even though it will never be considered a standalone classic it s a very very worthy novel to read Especially in conjunction with Heretics of Dune And I assume Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune carry on the tradition well since I m going to plow through them and continue the storyline set up here The cliffhanger at the end of Chapterhouse was a doozy Let s see if Herbert s son and Anderson make the ideas into something traditional eh I can hope They ve had a lot of practice in the universe before attempting the big one Herbert s death put a stop to the story and most of us fans were extremely upset Hell I remember reading this book the first time in 89 and wishing I could have written the seuel to it I can t be alone in this I can only hope that expectations live up etc etc
