Dune Book Update

The book Dune by Frank Herbert is a long and complex book that has an interesting way of writing the different chapters. Throughout the chapters we see the characters through the eyes of a narrator. Not through the perspective of one of the characters. The setting switches usually along with the chapters. At the beginning we are on the planet of Caladan, home world of House Atreides. Then in the second chapter we transition to the home world of the Harkonnen. This switch is disorienting but necessary to get the reader involved in both sides of the story. The main character of the story is the son of Duke Leto, the leader of House Atreides. He was trained by his mother, the Lady Jessica, in the way of the Bene Gesserit, a secret order who seek out a messiah of sorts. Paul seems to be a viable candidate.
