Dumbest part of the KJA books...well lets see.

Probably the winner would be in Paul of Dune (sic) when they claim all the original books were in universe propaganda

Other than that:

Paul not being born on Caladan
The Dinner Scene redux in Paul of Dune, featuring Marie Fenring
House Harkonnen, when the BG turn invisible and giggle like schoolgirls when the Baron can't see them.
House Atreides when the Duke's bullfight is against an ultra-bull with razor tusks, instead of a goddamn normal bull.
Winds of Dune.*
Whichever book has the "remove yourself" scene with Kynes.


*the whole book is trash.

Don't forget Gurney throwing the coin into the water to fight over like a bunch of savages.

Ultrabull was probably from ultraheighliner steered by ultranavigator ultrahigh on ultraspice.

Umm, wasn't that scene almost completely cribbed from 'Dune' itself?

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

the Appendix does set the stage for it, but I was fairly certain they had fleshed it out.

I'll just go ahead and add 'anytime they talk about Fremen' to the list of worst parts.

Oh, this scene was "fleshed out" by Pinky and the Brian? You won't catch me quoting that.
