    I read the first one a couple years ago during quarantine, how many after it are worth reading

    Personally, I would read all 6

    1 - 4 are essential. Messiah is a really quick read, I did that in about a day. A lot of people will say stop at Children but I did not like Children and I LOVE God Emperor. Think it comes to down to personal taste in tone, you might feel one way or the other. However stopping at Children doesn’t really allow for the bigger lesson of the series that’s stressed in God Emperor to land.

    5 - 6 are not essential, but they are the most unhinged of the bunch. Again, Children is actually my least favorite. I would pick these over that one. Herbert was just throwing whatever at the wall at that point. Somethings work and somethings don’t but they are definitely a lot of fun.
