I loved all of the Frank Herbert Dune books. They span a very broad stretch of time and I think the first Dune is the most positive. In other words, the characters both new and old go through a lot of struggle, so be prepared for that.I really love Frank Herbert's Dune, but for some reason I've never really felt tempted to read the rest of the series.
Dune felt like a complete novel in its own way, so I guess I have a stubborn resistance to continuing, in case it upsets my view of the first book.
Now I wonder if I'm just being narrow-minded.
Anybody who's read the rest of Frank Herbert's series - is it worth reading?
I ask, but although I once had a full collection, I think it ended up at a charity shop at one point. I know I had to buy the first book again.
The world is just so well written and the characters so well developed, that I feel they are worth anyone's time. I couldn't put them down. My only regret is that Frank Herbert died before he could get to and through book 7.
I will not recommend anything by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. Imo, they make a mockery of Frank Herbert's work.
