I liked the end books much less than Classic Dune, but the end books are certainly was worth the read. To give up and read wiki is a sin and a big mistake for any Dune fan, imo."

and again: "But there are smaller parts that i thought were very concise, and i'm a big fan of that."
or Posted: Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:33 pm Post subject: Here goes nothing"For me there are 2 Dune stories: FH’s Classic Dune, and BH and KJA’s Dune. I consider Classic Dune to be the real story of Dune. I like to consider the grand–finally-books to be based on FH’s Classic Dune. There are complications with this view.
To maintain this latter view, I must adopt a philosophy that something is better than nothing. That is to say that reading new books on Dune, though I think that the books are of lesser quality, are better than no books at all. I also have to accept the idea that no one can truly continue FH’s work. BH and KJA state at the beginning that no such effort would be attempted. Fair enough. However, I must state that this is really a generous view considering much of the great ideas in FH’s Classic Dune, which are the essence of Dune, are ignored, and drastically changed for the worse. I am disturbed by the lack of continuity of these ideas. I liked both Dune stories. I liked FH’s Dune far better.
After subsequent reads, I disagree with some of my initial comments.
Here are my impressions of SoD immediately after the first read in an enumerated format:

Is this enough for you Fuckturd?
