Having read all six of Frank Herbert's dune books several times over the years, I have also followed the Brian Herbert/Kevin Anderson ones when they first came out. These were the two initial trilogies - House of & the Butlerian pre history. Recently have begun to read the more recent ones including Paul & Winds of Dune. None of the writings by Brian Herbert & Anderson are on the same high level as the originals. Whereas Frank Herbert was subtle and masterful in his writing, the new ones are gruesome, violent and sensational, often are boring and plodding. Some of the new ones though are pretty good and enjoyable for the dune enthusiast. I would then recommend Paul of Dune as the best of the new ones and still somewhat worthwhile the House of trilogy. I would pass on the Butlerian trilogy, Sisterhood of Dune. Winds of Dune is sort of OK. For comparison here is how I would rate them all on a 5 point scale:...... Dune/5, Dune Messiah/5, Children of Dune/5, God Emporer/5, Heretics of Dune/5, Chapterhouse/4.5. House Atreides/3, Harkonnen/2.5, Corrino/2.5, Butlerian Jihad/2, Machine Crusade/1.5, Battle of Corrin/1, Sisterhood of Dune/1, Paul of Dune/3.5, Winds of Dune/3. I have yet to read Hunters of Dune & Sandworms of Dune.

Very good for a sequel, but it lacks the intricacy, subtlety and majesty of Dune. Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's follow-on books set in the Dune universe are satisfying reads, but lack the sweep and grandeur of Frank Herbert's original novels, and Paul of Dune is similar to the others in that regard.

Astounding! This is the sequel that the original Dune by Frank Herbert never had.
A must read for all Dune fans.
