Finally finished Dune. I know, I'm slow. Only read at the end of the day. I'm no @lowfat ok??!! ;)

I warmed to it a bit in the last third, but I still don't get why it is such a revered book/series. Maybe I went in with my expectations set a bit too high? I didn't like it enough to jump into the next book right away. However I did go watch the trailer for the new movie again, now that I know the story, and I have to say the movie looks very well done. Hope it delivers.

The Shadow of what was Lost Trilogy is very good.


I've been reading the online webnovel "The Wandering Inn" and I'm enjoying it greatly.

I assume quite good? Right now I'm reading through the Altered Carbon series and man even early on there's a lot of deviations.
The deviations in the first season are pretty big although it didn't impact the main story a whole lot. S2 is where all the deviations came back to bite them in the ass.

Make sure you read Thin Air and Thirteen after, they're very similar to the Kovacs Trilogy.

Part of it is due to how ground breaking it was at the time, it came out before even Star Trek did and sort of helped 'revolutionize' 'modern science fiction'.

I will try to remember that but I need to find more time to just read the Kovacs Trilogy so I have time to read the first Mass Effect novel (again, last time was a decade ago) ahead of ME Legendary coming out in May.

I thought the first Dune was really awesome. But not sure I really recommend continung it. The next two books had IMO a drop in quality each time.
