I've read several novels from some acclaimed authors (Jeffrey Archer for example) but still, Frank Herbert's God Emperor of Dune is the best novel I've ever read. Although there are some plots which can be quite confusing (as well as Frank's confusing English), the rest is absolutely perfect. Probably one of the most memorable characters is Lord Leto II, the God Emperor who is sometimes known as The Tyrant. The son of Paul Muab'Dib who slowly turned into an ugly sandworm, becomes immortal and ruled Rakis with a purpose. Later, more characters are introduced; Siona (first appeared in the beginning of the novel), Hwi , Moneo, the lovable Duncan Idaho, Fish Speakers and so on. Besides, we know that Leto is the loneliest creature in this universe until he meets Hwi Noree (actually she likes Duncan most) who would have become his bride but tragic strikes and that eventually costs their lives. Overall, no other novels can be as beautiful as God Emperor of Dune (along with the rest of the other Dune novels). I really like the story very much because you can imagine that its world is huge and immersing. I also like Leto's beautiful words, even though some of them are quite political of some sort. However, that's the only Dune book I've read so far. Perhaps I should get my hands on Dune: House Atreides to discover how Dune, one of the acclaimed epic of our time, is born.
