.....Sometimes I find myself thinking less is more, good storytelling often leaves more than a little to the imagination, but frankly I was thrilled when I saw House Atreides in the store way back when and realized we had more opportunity to follow the Atreides, the Fremen and the Bene Gesserit, among others. In my humble opinion those 3 groups are the most interesting in the saga, not neccessarily or absolutely in that order.
.....However formulaic some aspects of the story might get the book is still a page turner. Sherlock Holmes, one of my favourite characters from childhood, 50 years ago, was very formulaic, even the pastiche authors follow similar formulas to Doyle. Tolkien's Lord Of the Rings is formulaic. Dan Brown's Demons And Angels, Da Vinci and the Lost Symbol all follow a formula. Still good reading, suspenseful and all have characters you care about.
.....The question I need to ask myself is am I entertained, do I like the characters (or hate the villains as appropriate), do I care what happens. To restate an earlier point, maybe we will get to the point where too much detail is written. FH jumped 3,500 years from the end of Children Of Dune to God, Emperor Of Dune.
.....Dune started 10,000 years or so into our future. We could not possibly have minute by minute detailing of those 10,000 years but, so far, BH & KJA are filling in about the right amount. One novel for every 100 years? Might be excessive. I for one am willing to follow the authors where they lead. Not for everybody, but then what is?
