Analysis Â Â Â Â Â Dune: The Burtlerian Jihad is the fourth Dune novel I have read by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. One of the things I really liked about this book was the quotes at the binging of each chapter. â€œReligion, time and time again, brings down Empires, rotting them from within.â€ Â Â Â Â Â This is one of said quotes. The reason why I enjoy these quotes is because not only do they always have something to do with the chapter they have meaning in our world as well as the dune world. Â Â Â Â Â I also enjoyed the way this book was written, in very small five to twelve page chapters. The reason for this is because of the huge amount of significant characters. Every chapter the story changes randomly between a group of nine to ten main characters that usually have nothing to do with each other until a twist in the plot brings them together. An example of this is there is a character named Selim who lives on Arrakis know to the people who live there as Dune. Has had not had anything to do with any of the other characters and have only had a few appearances in the book but he will most likely have a lager part in the next book in the series. Â Â Â Â Â The aspect of this book that I like the most, though, was the immense amount of detail the book has. It is as if the authors are actually in the world of Dune accompanying the characters and simply writing exactly what they see around them. Whenever a setting was described I could see it in my mind. The authors have everything detailed down to how the advanced technology in the book functions. Â Â Â Â Â To answer if the book was successful in compelling its message I would say yes. The main Idea in this story is that man is getting far too reliant on external sources to do everything for them and then eventually it will all come crashing down and people will not know what to do.
Discussion - Essay Example Although US had the highest GDP per person but its infant mortality rate was higher than Franceâ€™s infant mortality rate which and similar was in the case of life expectancy rate. Countries that are poorer can establish better infant mortality rate as well as higher life expectancy rate as established in the comparison of France and US. This is because higher amount of GDP does not mean that the government is spending more on wellbeing and healthcare of their citizens. A country may be experiencing lower amount of GDP, but the amount of money it directs towards its populations healthcare determines how well a country stands in the measures of infant mortality rate. Secondly, the cost of healthcare even determines the countries standing in these measures. If cost of healthcare is kept low, then citizens can obtain better healthcare at lower prices. GDP per person statistics can only provide insight regarding how much per person is able to spend on goods and services, but does not determines the amount of goods and services that can be purchased and the quality of goods and services that can be purchased by individuals, thus relying on GDP per person statistics does not provide a clear picture of a nationâ€™s standard of
