I am still trying to digest all of the books I have been able to get my hands on. However, I am far from expert in understanding all the idea in this massive work. I am hoping that those that are far more able to digest the information will come and give ideas and thoughts. I suppose we can always start with the easiest-Which is your favorite Character and why? Also, other than the first incredible work, which is your favorite book? ( I only say this because everyone always says "Dune") for myself I love Jessica, and even though the writing is not nearly as good as Herbert's I have enjoyed reading the prequel's, I guess you can call them.
