Descriptions du produit

Audiofile

Book Three in the original Dune series relies heavily upon the events and the background of the first two books. Leto and Ghanima, twin children of Paul Atreides, are old beyond their years, as they hold the genetic memories of their ancestors. Climate change on the planet Arrakis threatens the desert life of the Fremen, the sandworms, and the production of spice. Simon Vance anchors this full-cast production. He is engaged with the characters and the complex plot. His presentation of the many characters is skillful, and the narrative passages never lag. Vance has a serious but light touch and deals adeptly with suspense, dissension, philosophical musings, and fanatical ravings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Difficile d'échapper à son futur 9 mars 2010
Format:Poche
Connaitre l'avenir ne rend pas plus heureux, c'est une morale qui pourrait s'appliquer à ce livre.

Dans ce 4 eme tome de Dune, nous nous retrouvons environs 10 après le messie de Dune, les jumeau Leto II et Ghanima, les enfants de Paul, ne sont pas vraiment des enfants puisse qu'ils partagent l'expérience et la vie de nombreux être en eux.
Alia la soeur de Paul est devenue folle à cause de ses voix intérieurs. Le désert se rarefie sur Arrakis et les vers donc l'épices aussi.
Tous ont un plan pour organiser le futur, Alia (ou le Baron) veulent tout gouverner, le Bene Gesserit ne veulent pas perdre leur gènes des jumeaux et Jessica veut réparer une de ses erreurs.
Les Fremens veulent retourner à leur coutume et au milieu de cela, les jumeaux ne veulent pas devenir fou comme leur tante et éviter les echecs de leurs père enfermé dans une vision fixe du futur et un mystérieux prêcheur essayant de soulever le peuple, détruisant ce qu'est devenu la religion de Muad Dib.
Toujours très bien écrit, personnages, lieux, politique, religion tout est parfaitement construit, du génie à l'état pur

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good conclusion to the original trilogy 24 février 2003
Par mrliteral - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Children of Dune is the third book in the Dune series. Although there are six books total, the first three form a trilogy, essentially the biography of Paul Atreides and his family (the other books take place much later). Dune, the first book, is a definite classic in science fiction, while Dune Messiah is a weaker yet still good sequel. Children of Dune fits somewhere between the two in quality.
As the book opens, Paul is believed to be dead, a martyr last seen nine years earlier. The political and religious empire he had created is prospering under his sister, Alia, who is acting as regent until Paul's twin children come of age. With indications of decadence already appearing, a mysterious Preacher is speaking out against the failings of this empire, and there are those who believe that this Preacher may be Paul.
One of the reasons that this book is stronger than the second book is the return of Lady Jessica, absent since the end of the first book. With her daughter Alia seeming possessed by the spirit of Baron Harkonnen (one of the great villains of sci-fi), Jessica becomes entangled in plots that could be fatal to her and her grandchildren. The twins themselves, intellectually far older than their physical ages and gifted with inherited talents, are hardly helpless in all this intriguing.
If you have enjoyed the first two Dune books, this is a must read, as it brings many plot lines to a close even as it opens new possibilities for future books. As in real life, Herbert understands that historical (even future historical) events rarely wrap up neatly, and a conclusion is merely a beginning of a different phase of history. This adds to the richness of this book and makes this series one of the landmarks of the genre.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Taking Dune to a higher level 14 décembre 2000
Par "hawk1138" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I have to admit that I enjoyed Children of Dune more than I thought I would. Dune and Dune Messiah were both masterpieces, but the chains of events Paul Muad'Dib set into motion seemed to be winding down by the end of Messiah. I'm happy to say that Children proved me wrong. Much of the book spends time fully fleshing out it's characters, letting us get deep into the heads of Jessica, Alia, Duncan Idaho, Farad'n, and of course the twins Leto II and Ghanima. The additional appearance of a Fremen preacher who seems as though he could be Paul Muad'Dib yet preaches against the ideas of Muad'Dib's followers keeps the direction of the book from becoming predictable. The rest opens up new possibilities that hint at a much grander future of possibilities.
The twins use a plot against them by the Imperial family as a device to start down the true path they feel Dune messiahs should take. This is a path which their father knew, but didn't have the courage to walk down. This "Golden Path" is an extraordinary journey that promises brilliant and awesome possibilities to really pep up the Dune series and take it to a higher level. You'll have to read Leto's beginning down that path to truly get the full picture; I won't spoil it here. Old worlds are examined and new worlds begin in Children of Dune. Experience them for yourself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Next to Dune, the best of the lot 9 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Children of Dune, the third book of the Dune chronicles, tells the story of the Atreides destiny after the disappearance of Muad'dib. The children of Muad'dib, Leto and Ghanima, now must take up the heavy burden left by their father. Old faces pop up, and there are many plot twists (but do we expect any less from Herbert's grand work?). The scope of this book is much broader than in Dune Messiah, which makes it a more enjoyable read. How can a series of books continue to produce, particularly under such heavy expectations? Who knows, but Children of Dune continues the rich tradition of the series

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Two adorable kids with powerful minds. Imagine it. 16 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
After reading God Emperor of Dune, I am quite glad to readandlearn more about the Dune universe created by Frank Herberthimself. One of the most recent Dune novel I've read is Children of Dune which tells the story of Paul's royal twins, Leto and Ghanima. Both of them have supernatural powers like their father's but one of them is destined to change the history of the universe forever, attempting to save the sandworms from extinction as well as the lost of his humanity. Like other Dune novels, Children of Dune is simply brilliant, packed with politics, religions and a few action sequences. Some of the memorable characters make their appearance as well like Duncan Idaho and Lady Jessica. However, the only catch is that it's too wordy at times. Some people think that it's also too prophetic due to its complexity but readers will later learn that Children of Dune is remarkably beautiful and enchanting. As a conclusion, Children of Dune is one of the greatest achievements ever made by Frank Herbert.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Concepts 27 décembre 2000
Par B. Merritt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
After reading Dune and then Dune Messiah, I was a little disappointed in Messiah. It had lengthy internal dialogue and long explanations of twisted plots within plots. But Children of Dune ranks right up there with the original Dune in my book! What a great story! The twins are awesome in their mental scope and abilities; Leto II is necessarily brutal as his human-ness slips away from him (and he knows it). The sand trout, the worms fears, the destruction of Alia and her abomination within, all warped the readers mind enough to make this a VERY enjoyable read. Now it's on to God Emperor of Dune. Let's see how this goes!
