Seems underwhelming.

AP

We'll be in the minority, but I agree with you. I never even finished the first book in that series.

^ Funny, me too.
I only read SF that is captivating! And there's plenty of that.

I read Dune many years ago. I never had any desire to read any of the author's other works.

I'm currently (re-)reading Too Many Women by Rex Stout in preparation for the next virtual book discussion of the Wolfe Pack.

I have been a big Rex Stout fan since I first read Some Buried Caesar in the back seat of the car as my parents were driving the family to visit my grandmother in far northwestern South Carolina.

Don't judge Herbert by the Dune series of books. He did write a couple sci-fi books prior to Dune that weren't too bad at all. One that I remember in particular is The Green Brain.
