Re: Dune - The Book and the 1984 film *spoilers for both*

The best purpose for sci-fi and fantasy novels are to aid in the expansion of the reader's consciousness and idea space. This is why Dune and God Emperor of Dune are infinitely more interesting than the books by Brian and Kevin. Those books aren't about the universe, they're just action novels which use the Dune universe. Which is fine and valid, but there are really much better page-turner thriller books to be read. I can't see Paul of Dune changing anybody's life.
