Review

A sweeping work of science-fiction that helped define the genre and bring it to the mainstreamThe Independent

Adapted from Frank Herbert's 1960s opus,
Dune is dense, moody and quite often sublime - the missing link bridging the multiplex and the arthouse ― The Guardian - 5*

This new adaptation of the 1965 Frank Herbert novel ... it's science-fiction at its most majestic, unsettling and envelopingDaily Telegraph

Dune is this generation's Lord of the Rings trilogy ... firmly grounded in Herbert's book. The author's story of feudal nobles waging war over Arrakis, the only source of a powerful drug known as spice, is thick with conflicting ideas that academics are still unpacking today ― The Independent

Dune: science fiction's answer to Lord of the RingsThe Guardian

Dune, more than 50 years after it was first published, is a story that speaks to the issues of our time ― BBC Science Focus

Astonishing in its scope and thought-provoking in its breadth of themes, Dune is an unforgettable fantasy adventure like no otherWoman & Home --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Amazon Review

This Hugo and Nebula Award winner tells the sweeping tale of a desert planet called Arrakis, the focus of an intricate power struggle in a byzantine interstellar empire. Arrakis is the sole source of Melange, the "spice of spices". Melange is necessary for interstellar travel and also grants psychic powers and longevity, so whoever controls it wields great influence.

The troubles begin when stewardship of Arrakis is transferred by the Emperor from the Harkonnen Noble House to House Atreides. The Harkonnens don't want to give up their privilege, though, and through sabotage and treachery they cast young Duke Paul Atreides out into the planet's harsh environment to die. There he falls in with the Fremen, a tribe of desert dwellers who become the basis of the army with which he will reclaim what's rightfully his. Paul Atreides, though, is far more than just a usurped duke. He might be the end product of a very long-term genetic experiment designed to breed a superhuman--he might be a messiah. His struggle is at the centre of a nexus of powerful people and events, and the repercussions will be felt throughout the Imperium.

Dune is one of the most famous science fiction novels ever written, and deservedly so. The setting is elaborate and ornate, the plot labyrinthine and the adventures exciting. Five sequels follow. --Brooks Peck
