Just finished the Dune prequel series
I have to say, I enjoyed them a lot more than I thought I would - perhaps because while preserving the geopolitical maneuvering (galacti-political?), there's a great deal of action, character development, and twists that I never expected. I'll have to go back and re-read the Dune series now, especially since I never actually got past the third book, and it's been a couple decades since I've read Dune itself.

1. I gave up on them
when the Bene Gesserit suddenly had the ability to turn themselves invisible. Too much.

The original series is one of my favourites. God Emperor is a fantastic book, almost equal to the original.
