I have all of Herbert's Dune books. From Dune to Chapterhouse.
Have not read them yet.
Sadly I also have yet to read them, but my brother read them all and he got me into the original movie, mini series remake and the games as well as telling me about the more interesting parts of the books beyond the movie. The whole saga is very interesting and enjoyable, one of my favourite actually and I do need to get around to reading the books myself.
Sadly it seems to be often overlooked, many people I mention Dune to seem to have no idea what it is. So sad considering it really should be one of the main fantasy epics that is commonly discussed. Then again I suppose it is for the better to not have hundreds of shitty movies made of it because it is popular.
I also find that people tend not to look into the story who have played the RTS Dune games, which is also quite sad since it goes a lot deeper than the games let on, sure the RTS games are absolutely amazing, but so is the rest of Dune.
