Dune - Reading Order
« on: September 27, 2014, 02:38:55 PM »
For those who have read all the books, suggestions please.

I have read the books by Frank Herbert, most of them ages ago, I was thinking of doing them in Dune universe chronological order:

Hunting Harkonnens (Short-Story)
The Butlerian Jihad
Whipping Mek (Short-Story)
The Machine Crusade
The Faces of a Martyr (Short-Story)
The Battle of Corrin

Sisterhood of Dune
Mentats of Dune

House Atreides
House Harkonnen
House Corrino

Dune
A Whisper of Caladan Seas (Short-Story, takes place during 'Dune')
Paul of Dune
The Road to Dune (Short-Story by FH)
Dune Messiah
The Winds of Dune
Children of Dune

God Emperor of Dune

Heretics of Dune
Chapterhouse Dune

Whenever I re-read the Dune series (which I do about twice a year), I read them in this order:

Dune




That's it.




I read the other Frank Herbert Dune Novels once.

...once!

I re-read Dune about a year ago, which is what inspired me to read the whole series again.

My suggestion: You read the ones that Frank Herbert wrote in the order that he wrote them and then you stop.

Sounds fun. I've only done them in publication order.

To be honest, the books I am most interested in are the ones about the Bene Gesserit, is anyone familiar enough with the books to give the order for these?

So I have re-read Dune and Dune Messiah, and a wee bit of Children of Dune.

The Butlerian Jihad also was given a brief listen, as well as Chapterhouse Dune, but I am having a hard time with some of these books.
