About the book

image4.2/5.0

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family--and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream. A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what it undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

Oh, man. This is what everyone was raving about? This is a hill I struggled to get over. A slog of a book that is more enjoyable if you’re into intergalactic politics than straightforward sci-fi. It does a great job of world-creating and has some novel concepts that have been chased by other writers for decades. But the writing itself is a bit of a chore and likely only accessible to genre-specific fans. I can see how this was groundbreaking once upon a time, but now it seems unnecessarily dense.

Couldn't get through it, too much “old stuff” and ideas in a space setting.
