I got a lot more than I expected out of this book and its sequel "House Harkonnen". It sets the scene for "Dune", but it's a fine saga in its own right. Bad guys like Shaddam and Vladimir Harkonnen are better drawn than the Atreides, but that's OK as the Dune books left a big gap in that regard. I strongly recommend it
