This is book #52 referenced in this post

The Plot: A child messiah leads a guerrilla war against the enemy clan who killed his father. Also, something about spice.

The Good: The descriptions of the Freman culture, and the concept of 'the spice'. The addition of lolcat memes are a plus.

The Bad: WTF actually are Paul's abilities?

The Verdict: 4/5 stars. One of the better space science fictions I've read, but it gets docked because I prefer my sci fi to focus more on characters and less on scenery.

Next Up: #19 The Time Traveller's Wife
