    Dune Messiah is essentially all the hidden themes of the first book, laid bare.
    "Hero worship is bad mmkay" is the main message of the series. zlol

    It's also heartbreaking. zcry

    You're going to occasionally recognize the book in there.
    Occasionally.

    Passed the halfway mark in Messiah. Tiff book is feeling very much like an extended epilogue to the original in a lot of ways.

    Ordered God Emperor, Heretics, and Chapterhouse.

    Out of curiosity. What do you think is going to be the ending of Dune Messiah? tinking
    (I won't spoil it for you. But it'll be fun to compare expectation vs reality.)

    I don't think I see Paul making it out alive. Probably some sort of uprising/mutiny, with the Fremen among those that help to take him down. Beyond that, not quite sure.

    Do we ever catch up with Jessica and Halleck again?

    For the film version, David Lynch had body bags converted to uniforms worn by some of the guild troopers.

    That's used body bags, not new ones.

    Imagine being an extra, shooting all your scenes for hours or days in a used (and lice infected) body bag converted suit, in the heat of a Mexican desert.

    But hey - over here is Christian Bale getting into a rage fit, because a crew member adjusts the lightning equipment between scenes, disturbing Bale while he is in his 'acting process'.

    Jessica is a main character in Children of Dune.
    Other than that... i won't say if you're wrong or right.

    Cool cool.

    Hoping to have Messiah done in the next couple days. I'm finding it to be a much quicker read than the first book (partially due to the shorter page count, I'm sure, but also probably because I actually "get" the world right from the onset this time around) despite there being much less actually happening than in the first.

    there's actually a lot happening that you don't see at first.

    ~100 pages to go, and a long bus trip to/from NY tomorrow.

    I'll probably be done with Messiah and starting Children of Dune by day's end.

    Just reached the stone burner. No way Paul is making it out of here alive. Or Chani... guessing her pregnancy is going to result a new Leto.

    It took me a while to hunt down decent scans of this just last month.

    And... WATCH THE MOVIE
