Discussion Questions for Dune Read-Along, Part 1

Credit: Jenni Elyse

Here are the questions (courtesy of Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings) for this week's reading.  We are posting our answers on Saturday, July 14th, but you are welcome to do it before if you want.  I will have the linky for your posts up on Saturday. And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the Dune Read-Along intro post.  I'm posting them now so you can kind of keep these in mind while you're reading:

1. What, if any, preconceived ideas did you have before you started reading Dune and how has the first section measured up to those preconceptions?
(Alternate Question for those who’ve read the book: Did you see anything in this first section of the book that either you hadn’t seen before or that you had forgotten about, anything that stood out to you?

2. What did you think about the plot device of the early revelation that Yueh was to be the traitor?

3. What was your favorite part of this first section? Which character(s) do you find most interesting and why?

4. Did the revelation about the Harkonnen surprise you?

5. Finally, please share some overall thoughts on this first section of the book. Are you finding it difficult to follow? Easy to understand? Engaging? Boring? Just share what you are thinking thus far.

Can't wait to discuss all this on Saturday (um, I better get reading, though, as I'm only about 50 pages in).

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage
