You need to read these books in sequence. Of the previous three Dune books (Dune, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune) I have always felt that Dune Messiah was probably the weakest (and definitely the shortest). The third book, Children of Dune, was a return to form and God Emperor of Dune further expands Frank Herbert's universe. Together with Dune itself this is probably my favourite. I don't want to give away the plot for those who have not read it, but like the others in the series it is a multi-layered story with elements of economics, manufactured religion, psychology, politics, mysticism, ecology and evolution.

Frank Herbert followed this with Heretics of Dune and Chapter House Dune, both of which are also well worth reading.

I found it confusing, at no point is there a character named Frank Herbert, and he's not the God Emperor anyway. This is my least favourite Tolkien book, I much preferred his Star Wars series with Princess Starbuck.

The whole series can be considered a masterpiece, although this book and the first are my clear favourites.

Excellent.

Excellent book, continuing the long history that started at Dune. Frank Herbert manages to introduce new characters as if they where there from the beginning. Nothing feels out of place. The innner struggle for the Golden path continues shinning.

As long as you are reading the series in order then this won't disappoint.
