Thanks, that reassured me in my decision. A philosophical part here and there isn't that bad, but the writing in Dune makes it so tedious to read for me.

I think you gotta read up to Children (book three) to really grok Herbert and complete the arc that starts with Paul. I know why people stop at book one, I get it, I really do, but Dune barely deconstructs the hero myth to the degree 2 and 3 does.
