The God-Empereur est un livre incroyable de la littérature fantastique. Ce tome de Dune nous plonge dans le questionnement. La sagesse exprimée dans ce livre, et les enseignements qu'on y trouve sont incroyables. On ne lit pas Dune comme on lit un roman SF, on lit Dune comme on lit un ouvrage philosophique de grand intérêt, c'est vrai pour toute la série, et en particulier pour ce volume là, l'empereur-Dieu. A ceux qui maitrisent mal l'anglais, lisez-le en français, car il n'est pas toujours facile à lire. Mais on y prend plaisir, et on le comprend mieux en le relisant plusieurs fois. C'est un livre (ainsi que toute la série), indispensable à avoir dans sa bibliothèque.

La première trilogie de Dune était bien construite, plutôt bien emmenée et posait les bases d'un univers très intéressant (Dune, Dune messiah, Children of Dune). Ce quatrième tome tartine le concept de manière vraiment exagérée. C'est long, ennuyeux, répétitif, et franchement ça a mal vieilli. Le côté "psychédélo-70's" est poussé jusqu'à la caricature. On peut s'arrêter à "Children of Dune" sans souci.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perhaps the single best Si-Fi book of all time. 9 mai 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
A text whose depth of religious, historical, philosophical and emotional insights touch at the very essence of what humanity is. As someone who has read the 6-books of the Dune series more than 7-times each, I find God Emperor to be a gifted presentation set within the perspective of a truly unique point-of-view. As with the entire Dune series, Herbert forces us to focus within ourselves to answer the deeper questions and issues raised so masterfully in his book. The relationship and dialogues between the God Emperor Leto, and Moneo, his Majordomo has to be some of the most insightful, honest theater in Si-Fi history. From the silent obeyance of the massive Nayla, or the fostered rebellious attitudes of Siona, the shimmering `Golden Path' that will finally and forever perpetuate humankind in the Universe has been set into place personally by Paul Atreides' son Leto. With Leto's selfless sacrifice of an unimaginable 3,500-years, his metamorphosis of worm and man; man and God, legend and religion with his logical-brilliance of the all-female "Women of the Imperial Guard", the Fish Speaker Army that holds an iron-grip on the human universe- Herbert creates the single most enjoyable, readable, profound, and meaningful book in his timeless collection. This book also ties the Paul Atreides side of the Dune series to the Bene Gesserit-led books in a singular, keystone fashion. The development of the Ixians, and the Tleilaxu; the downgrading of the Guild, and the Bene Gesserit and the extermination of CHOAM and the Great Houses add a great deal to both the overall and continuing plot lines of the Dune series. More so than the rest of the series, this book forces a closer examination of religious, social and interpersonal beliefs, and in a truly long-term thinking frame. This book also stands unique among the Dune-sequels as being the only one that can be easily read, understood and enjoyed without having read the other books. It would be interesting to have originally read this book first, then Dune second. I will never bore of Leto's character or his integrity. Please read this book, and when you finish it, read it again. -Scott Craig "Religious institutions perpetuate a mortal master-servant relationship, they create an arena which attracts the prideful human power-seekers with all of their nearsighted prejudices! Ultimately, we must realize that we are all servants unto God, not servants unto servants." -Frank Herbert 1981

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Characters, not action. 13 août 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
First, let me get this out of the way. If youwere annoyed by some of the abstruse and occasionally pretentious dialogue in the first three books (esoecially the third) then you won't like this book in all probability. If you love action and excitement and an intense plot, and thats what youre looking for, you won't like this book in all probabilty.
That said, this book is easily the best book in the Dune series (only the first can compete; and that is because it sets up the world). The setting is a quantum leap from the first one; there is virtually no connection to the petty feuding world of Dune, with the intense Fremen and their intense culture.
This book revolves around 5 characters: Hwi Noree, Siona, Moneo, Leto II and Duncan Idaho, the ever present ghola. The idea of Duncan Idaho being constantly resurrected struck me as as an interesting conceit, and it played well into the story (Leto's psychological analysis of Duncan based on his resurrections is also interesting).
Of these five characters, Moneo and Leto are easily the most interesting. They form a perfect foil- Leto, so intelligent and so far beyond the normal human awareness that his thoughts cant help being nearly incomprehensible, and Moneo, the former rebel who was converted by his visions of the Golden Path and is now staid in his duty and unquestioning in his belief.
Figuring out what exactly the Golden Path is- the path that Maud'Dib could not bring himself to contemplate and that Leto took upon himself in place of Ghanima- is a tussle.
It is an immensely enjoyable tussle, however. Leto seems to be saying, by being the ultimate power-holder and despot of this universe, I accomplish too things. First, I am freeing humanity of the craving for authority and reinforcing free will and action- I am showing people that despotism, even peaceful despotism, automatically creates tension and disturbance. Secondly, I am showing people that enforced peace leads to degeneration of the soul.
God Emperor of Dune is a complex book, one that needs to be reread many times in order to draw the juices of interpretation and understanding from it. Its about government, power, love, humanity. It also has the most interesting and one of the most complex characters created in sciencefiction. And that alone justifies reading it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 God Emperor of Dune. 14 août 2000
Par Todd - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This is what the whole series is all about right here. Paul Muad'Dib was a failed messiah. Failed because he locked himself into a future that he could not stand to be a part of. Like his father, young Leto II also saw the path that his father fled from. But in looking deeper into that future saw the only way to save humankind from itself. The Golden Path. This book is set smack-dab in the middle of that golden path. Deeply religious and philosophical undertones drive this book right to the top of my personal best list. If I had to pick only one book that truly changed my perspective and deepened my thinking it has to be this book. Leto is a very rich character unparalled in any other series. Frank Herbert took the ideal of a higher power and what it must be like to be that power, and humanized it for all to disect and study. True Genius. If you're looking for the action of the first book, God Emperor might dissapoint you. Though there is action, it is the dialogue of this book that makes it the timeless perfection that it is. So if you want to take your mind on a consciousness expanding ride, curl up with this book and enjoy.

Frank Herbert did a good job in the 436 pages of "God Emperor of Dune" of burying his actual story. The story, what little of it he actually presents, is an interesting one. But, it's almost entirely swamped by his repeated, constant, discussion of philosophy and by his stunting of his characters (there's absolutely no growth in any of the characters and, after a while, their constant repetitions of their one behavior just grates). I'll condense the book (without spoilers) below:

Leto: "Oh, what I've given up for the Golden Path." [insert pages of oracular philosophizing and a few obscure aphorisms]
Hwi: "Dear one, how I love you."
Siona: "I'll get you, you evil worm!"
Duncan: "You're not a true Atreides. OMG, deviant intimate behavior!"
Moneo: "Sorry, Lord. I don't understand. Oh no, the Worm approaches!" [grovel, grovel, cringe, cringe]
Nayla: "This must be a test. But, I must obey the Lord."

I'm rating this book at merely and OK 3 stars out of 5, but I was leaning heavily towards a lower rating. What saved it is simply that it does give a sort of tie-up for Leto's sacrifice back in "Children of Dune." If Herbert had cut out a couple of hundred pages worth of waxing philosophic, put a sentence or two in Leto's mouth that actually made sense, and grown the characters toward some kind of reasonableness, this could have been a pretty good book. But, as it is, I'm not all that enamored of it.

And to help people find all the books in the original Dune series (i.e., when Frank Herbert was still alive):
1. Dune (40th Anniversary Edition) (Dune Chronicles, Book 1)
2. Dune Messiah
3. Children Of Dune: The Third Dune Novel
4. God Emperor of Dune
5. Heretics of Dune
6. Chapterhouse: Dune

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Joys and Pains of Leto II 14 mars 2004
Par Bart Leahy - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I personally think Herbert could have ended his series here, as he manages to accomplish, with Leto Atreides II, all of the things he didn't manage with Paul. I'm going to reveal a ton of plot here, so bear with me. [Reading a review about what happens and reading the book are two different experiences, anyway, so you won't lose anything by reading what I type here.]
At the end of Children of Dune, Paul's son Leto II had merged with the "sandtrout" (larval form of the Dune sandworms) to become a super-human monster who was very close to invincible. It is speculated at the end of that book that he could live for 4,000 years. As God Emperor of Dune opens, it is 3,508 years after the events of Children, and Leto's sandtrout have transformed him into a human-sandworm hybrid, the only such animal in existence. Arrakis is now totally terraformed, and Leto has a tyrant's grip on the empire's dwindling supplies of the spice, melange.
Leto is a more powerful telepath than his father, and has the memories of all his ancestors--male and female--upon which to draw. He has become sensitive to moisture, and mostly lives in a citadel near the desert portion of Arrakis. Around him, the Bene Gesserit, the technologists of Ix, and the genetic manipulators of Bene Tleilax continue to weave their schemes in an effort to find his "secret stash" of spice.
The God Emperor has transformed society on an unprecedented level. Every world reflects the same pattern of life, and has been frozen by a ban on space travel. Only Leto's "Fish Speakers," an army composed entirely of women, are allowed free travel, and they perform the roles of conquerers and "civilizers." The clever part of forcing humanity into this pattern (which I didn't catch until I had read the book later) is that all of humanity gets to experience what age after age of peace is like. That was a big part of Herbert's story, after all: to show what life would be like for a person dependent upon prescience. And the verdict of that life is boredom.
Thrown into this mixture, of course, is a rebel Atreides, Siona, and the continually-reborn Duncan Idaho. They are considered crucial to Leto's breeding program for humanity. There is also a new, female ambassador from Ix, who allows Leto to recall his human side. All in all, there's a lot happening here, but Herbert manages to tell his story briskly. The usual quotes at the beginning of each chapter are usually excerpts from Leto's Journal, and provide (as usual) interesting comments about society and politics. I really enjoyed this book. To get a better, simpler look at Frank Herbert's universe, this serves as a triumphant example.
