I've got a few long flights coming up and I was looking for something to read, and I decided I wanted to try the dune series. does anyone have any decent ebook versions of the first 4 books? the ones I've found have some really weird formatting

Here's the guide I used. I stopped at God Emporor because I don't want to leave things on a cliffhanger.

Are the non-Frank books really that bad?

How much of a pleb am I if I loved the original Dune but found the sequels dull and boring?
I'm halfway through chapterhouse and I'm extremely tempted to drop it.

Am I a pleb if I loved the original Dune but found all 5 of the Frank sequels dull and boring, even God emperor?
Hell, I even enjoyed Brian's House trilogy better than the Frank sequels, but that might be because Duke Leto is my favorite character in the series

Am I a pleb if I only found the original Dune a good book but found the other 5 Frank sequels (including god emperor) to be boring and uninteresting?

It really depends what you want out of them, but I would say the first 3 at least are worth it

Why does Children of Dune get memed on? I'm about halfway through it and so far it's been pretty decent.

A lot of people think Dune Messiah is the weakest one. It's worth trying Children of Dune at least, as that is very different in style from Messiah. Personally I think it's the weakest book of the 6 (far more than Messiah) but that's not the general opinion.

Yeah. Use the chart to guide you in reading.
Frank Herbert excels in world creation. He gives you just enough information & lets you fill in the rest. Brian writes young adult novels.

After choosing option 3, I wish I had just stuck with 1.

God, the Dune series is so fucking good. I just wish I got the courage to read it earlier.

I just finished Children of Dune, and despite what's written in the chart, I liked it a lot. I'm gearing up for God Emperor now. I originally planned to stop after finishing that, but I might read the last two books as well.

I haven't read the books myself, but according to this chart, the 2nd book serves as an epilogue to the first, and it's not too long.

This guide is accurate. I started reading Dune a few years ago (surprsingly my mom got really into it too) and our interest naturally fizzled out 1/4 of the way through the fifth book.
