It (the whole Dune saga) is indeed a very powerfully addictive sci-fi entertainment drug and the new drug lords, you know - Brian and Kevin - have been concocting new variants of this ultra strong stuff so beware, forewarned is forearmed. Come to think of it, is there such a thing as enjoying something too much? Dune Messiah won't let you down if you enjoyed Dune. You just have to know why the Kwisatz Haderach needs to kill his own myth if you want to understand "God Emperor Of Dune" a bit further down the line.
Coming from the first book straight into Dune Messiah, I can say that the move from the hero to the despot is one that is refreshing. A hero struggling with his abilities, taking the only paths leading to what? The jihad has happened, what other paths lead to ruin? The lengths people will go for power, to save loved ones. The ideas expressed in this book ring true today as it did when it was first released.
I'm happy to have finally found Frank Herbert's wonderful works. There is truth to be found in his words. A great work to follow up Dune.

I'm glad I read it after reading Dune. It's a pretty short book and has some very interesting twists.
