I do think the new series is horrible, in comparison with the orginials. Just not very good at all. But if you’re a big enough Dune fan, you almost have to read them.
My only problem with the original Dune is that it’s called science fiction, but science is pretty much completely absent. Even Dune itself is a scientific impossibility. A world without water would, in about ten minutes, be a world without any oxygen.
Well, Arrakis wasn’t devoid of water. The planet had evolved such that it became a 99% desert planet perhaps, but the Fremen were able to adapt to the climate change and had kept a supply of water hidden away long enough for Muad’Dib, aka Paul Atreides, to change all that.
