The ones that Frank Herbert actually wrote. Ignore the ones written by his son and Kevin Anderson.

Nope!

The Duniverse is really really dense. Back in highschool I heard that his son had found a lockbox with notes in it that allowed him to 'finish' the series and write the prequels, but I've come to learn that's most likely hogwash.

The 'Extended Universe' books aren't terrible. They scratch my sand-textured itch. But they don't live up to the majesty of Dune.
