Where are you originally from, or where did you live before Germany, if that's not prying?
I come originally from southern England. I started reading Dune when I was at college in Crawley. I worked for over 15 years in Southampton, before moving to Germany - I spent 5 years outside of Munich, but met my life partner at the end of 2007 and now live and work in the north, near Osnabrück (a lot of UK military personnel will know the area, they had a large base here until last year).

Pretty good, although some terms vary between the books. It is very interesting to read it again, but hard going at times (especially DM, although I always found the first third of that hard going in English as well...).
Trying to get my girlfriend interested, she has read the first book, but found she needed to "think", so is waiting until she has more time to concentrate on the series.
