My summer reading project is all the Frank Herbert Dune books. Of course, I've read the first book several times and love it. But the second book, Dune Messiah, has repeatedly pushed me away from continuing with the series every time I try (it is a rough read, especially following on the heels of the greatness of Dune). This time though, I won't give up. I've read such good things about the later books, particularly God Emperor of Dune, that I feel like it's overdue for me to give the full series my attention. I feel like a real hypocrite, because I've proselytized Dune on so many occasions, calling it my favorite scifi novel, and yet I've never "finished" the story.  :ganishka: So currently, I'm near the end of Dune Messiah. Eagerly awaiting the conclusion so I can move on   :daiba:

Awesome! I hope you enjoy them, Walter. The first time I read Dune Messiah was rough, but I appreciated it much more the second time around. It gives the reader an insight into Paul's mind and how his prescience actually works. Even if you don't like it that much, I think you'll really enjoy Children of Dune. God Emperor of Dune is my personal favorite, after the first book. Can't wait to hear your takes on these.

Nice! I think you'll like it.

Personally, I hope Miura returns to that universe when he finishes Berserk.

Finished it a bit ago. It was pretty weird, though if Miura continues that would be pretty cool.

I've been reading The first law series by Joe Abercrombie.
Cant recommend it enough. Really like the way the Author writes the story. Interresting characters, great pacing, i'm really enjoying it. Im in the second book now.
I came across the series through a top ten fantasy books list from Reddit, glad i decided to start it.
