From cover to cover it is interesting and exciting. There is a reason it is hailed as such a timeless story, and I implore that you find the time to experience it for yourself.
When I first read this book these were foreign questions, ones I'd never ask and couldn't even contemplate the answers. But that's what Frank Herbert delivers in a style where he never directly tells us the answer, but through a glimpse of the GEoD thoughts, we piece together our own answers.
The plot is reasonably simple, interactions transparent, but there is a ton of wisdom in every other sentence. Hubert snuck in pithy statements left and right to complement the story that unfolded.
Brilliant book and worth rereads in the future.
