Just read Sisterhood by Brian Herbert. I’m enjoying the trilogy that includes Mentats and Navigators, continuing the Dune prequel series. While he falls short of his father’s ability to put together a story, they are interesting as I enjoy being immersed in the Dune worlds. The characters are a little shallower and the stories have some small holes. But overall, they’re much better than the usual ebook tripe being put out like an avalanche of garbage.
Unfortunately, I find 90% of books painfully boring. If I can’t get into a story by page 50 or 60, I move on. 99% of the “recommended” books fall into that category. I read for enjoyment, not to be uncomfortable.There is enough of that crap in this rapidly decaying world. I want escape! Brian Herbert’s many prequels might be a bit on the shallow side (some are grossly shallow, but he is filling in a lot of the back story), but they are well written with very few errors and they hold my attention. Something most other books cannot do.
