This poor dumb fucker says he's going to read Sandworms next. (not even Hunters)

i think he means re-reading Dune and reading through the series to Chapterhouse then the retards-r-us conclusion. at any rate, his love for the legends trilogy discounts any credibility he gets for wanting to re-read dune.
nosir, somewhere in this mess of twisted threads is the quote from
Over There - he says he read Dune & Dune Messiah, then Legends.
And that is where he is at now. I asked Simon to defend that,
seeing as how he thinks the new books are 'harmless' - it's already
fucked this guy up beyond redemption.

About an hour ago I finally finished the Legends Triology and I was extremely impressed. I also liked how they deepend my view and outlook on the Duniverse. Prior to reading them I've only read Dune and Dune Messiah and I still didn't fully grasp the importance of the Guild and Melange until a year later (a month ago) I picked up The Butlerian Jihad and I seriously couldn't put either of the 3 down!

Overall I liked reading and learning about the original Fremen way of life and how they conserve every molecule of moisture they can scavenge. I feel like I've had a connection with the Fremen I know what it's like living in a harsh climate since I live in a frying pan called Arizona lol.

What I liked most was how emotional the conflicts were with Duncan Idaho like in GEoD towards the end of the book when Hwi Noree leaves him to marry Leto II and even when Duncan comes in contact with a family formed by the other Duncan. I liked how deep the Hayt awakening was by Bijaz in Dune Messiah and how emotional it got when Bashar Teg did it in HoD.


I hate this bitch. Pick a story & stick with it.

Maybe, during the time between the posts she could have read from CoD to HoD.

Do you have the dates?

I'd laugh if the posts were actually anachronistic :)

both within the last month - Bel Moulay joined up Over There
in late August of this year. But several things point to a retread-pretard,
someone who had posted before and is again with a different username,
like Murbella MC.

Again tho, to be fair (tho I'm not sure why), I don't think Bel Moulay is
a native English speaker, so all that must be taken into account.

I read the first four original novels around the time of the Lynch movie, the next two as they came out in PB in Australia. Read the House trilogy, started BJ but couldn't finish it, and didn't read the other two in that series.

Read Hunters and Sandworms after SoD came out in PB, and was appalled. Vented here in numerous threads, at length.

Have not, and will not, read any more. What I read was shit, and I'm assuming that any forthcoming novel will also be shit. To be fair, I'm not going to make any negative statements about books I haven't read.
