I’m really enjoying the book. It’s so dense and over complicates itself to start off with but then that eases off as you get into it. I am only about 200 pages on though.

But really enjoying it so far.


The entire arc of the main narrative that runs through Dune and its sequels is pretty stunning in its scope. The latter books tend to be a bit repetitive but it's thrilling to see the narrative adequately brought to an end.



I was told to only read as far as god emperor and ignore the books his son took up posthumously. Should I ignore that?

There is a definite quality difference post-Frank but the story kept me entertained.
