It is a part of a book giving added and helpful information.

I have noticed many people who don’t read the appendix after finishing a book as they think it a waste of time.

But in the case of Dune, this is an astonishingly helpful part.

It includes the meaning of various terms used in Dune such as Kwisatz Haderach, Gom Jabbar, Kindjal, Muad’dib, Reverend Mother, and a lot of others.

Not knowing these terms would be a hindrance to your understanding of the story and in turn, you will not be satisfied. This is surely a basic tip to understand books better.

Now that you know the tip, head over this post to know just a single tip to read up to 100 books a year!
