Not on the same level of the original books. Nevertheless I mostly enjoyed it as it does capture some of the magic of the Frank Herbert originals. House Harkonnen & House Corinno are about the same. if you are seriously into Dune I would recommend reading them in the following order: House Atreides, House Harkonnen, House Corinno, Dune, Dune messiah, Paul of Dune, Winds of Dune, Children of Dune, God Emporer, Heretics, and Chapterhouse. Avoid Butlerian Jihad, Machine Crusade, Battle of Corrin & Sisterhood. I have not yet read Hunters or Sandworms.

While it's not as good as Herbert's original series, this book is a welcome return to the world and characters of "Dune," and recpatures some of the spirit of the first book that was lost in the depth of later books in the series like "Heretics of Dune."
