About the book

image4.3/5.0

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE directed by Denis Villeneuve, starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem. Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for.... When House Atreides is betrayed, the destruction of Paul’s family will set the boy on a journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined. And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib, he will 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 is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

The world building is... Well, out of this world. It's such an exciting blend of genres - sci fi, fantasy, political commentary. As a written work, it's so visual, mysterious and truly epic that is the culminating of events that took place over thousands of years. Blown away.

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.
