It was but the books are perhaps the greatest science fiction novels ever written. I'd highly recommend reading them. If this film does any justice to the book, it'll be incredible. David Lynch unfortunately made a weird and silly version.

The first is really good, what came after is hit and miss in my opinion*

They get weirder later on, but God Emperor is still genius, at least the character and his dialogue is.

Agreed, God Emperor is mind blowing territory, but to be fair it does go steadily downhill after all that, and by the time it closes off it’s just got weird.

As for his son’s nonsense. Avoid.

I think Frank was taking some powerful drugs by the last one but God emperor was 4th. Only heretics and chapterhouse were after. Sons books were rubbish agreed.
