Default Reading Dune

I started reading Dune long ago, and gave it up as too much of a slog.

I did the same with the LOTR, made it though the Hobbit and bogged down. Based on some advice, I re-read LOTR and this time skipped every section with a poem or song. Much nicer, and good reads. At least as good as the movies.

I went back to Dune, but the--mud, I guess--isn't as easy to skip there. The internal dialogue and back story it just too much effort to make it a good read.

Does anyone have a suggestion so I can read the stories?
