Q: I've read all the original books multiple times, and read a couple of the prequels (Butlerian Jihad). Do you think the new Paul of Dune and Winds of Dune should come before or after the House series? I'm much more interested in the original characters..
I've only read about half of Paul of Dune. I recommend reading the House series first because they are prequels to the original, first three Dune books (Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune). I enjoyed the House series. I thought Atreides was the best, Harkonnen the worst, and Corrino was a decent closer. However, you might like to read Paul and Wind first since they are in-between books.
