"Unique...I know nothing comparable to it except Lord of the Rings." --Arthur C. Clarke Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination.

Dune is a great book, and Simon Vance, the primary narrator of the audible version I'm listening to, has probably one of my favorite voices of all time. The voice acting overall is good in this version, but I'm confused as to why some chapters feature several voice actors doing various characters while other chapters - featuring the same characters - have everything voiced by Vance. As I said, I love his voice, but the switching back and forth is odd and distracting to me.

The hype is justified for this book. If you have not read it yet, please do yourself a favor and change that asap. I'm sure there are a landslide of other reviewers that can tell you all about the story itself, so I will skip that. This book was an epic pleasure to read. I had some apprehension going in as I repeatedly heard that it's overly jarring from the beginning. I did not find this to be the case, and I'm no prodigy. It does have some of it's own words that are explained in the back of the book if needed, but said words are also presented with enough context to give you a good idea of what they're talking about. You have to push through a little at the beginning, but everything falls into place quickly enough.

From cover to cover it is interesting and exciting. There is a reason it is hailed as such a timeless story, and I implore that you find the time to experience it for yourself.

I'm not actually sure how many times I've read Dune; every decade maybe. It is extraordinary how each time I do it speaks of something different to me as I age. My first read as a young teen in the '70s was overwhelming with words and scenes I'd never experienced before. It was magical and one of the mind expanding elements of the New Age. Now, in 2017, it comes full circle to the fears of environmental impact and government off the beam. I've aged, and the story still offers an amazingly lucid reflection of reality. I highly recommend it across anyone's life span.

When i was starting this book, i felt like the language was intentionally simplified for a younger audience. That might still be the case - however after reading the appendices it is clear as day that this was a mightily complex world that was brilliantly thought out and modeled after a ton of existing myths and religions that have gone through earth.

The plot is reasonably simple, interactions transparent, but there is a ton of wisdom in every other sentence. Hubert snuck in pithy statements left and right to complement the story that unfolded.

Brilliant book and worth rereads in the future.

"Dune" is one of the seminal works of modern science fiction. Not just because it is the first a series of books, but because it was at once a fine story with an interesting hero, but also for many people it was a basic introduction to the concepts of World Ecology and the interrelationships of all life forms everywhere, and also it was the first SF book to take a serious look at the workings of realpolitik. I read it when it was first published nearly 50 years ago, and I read it last week, and it holds up. Super story taking place in a totally-original world with a fine, believable cast of characters. If I were writing a cover blurb I would call it "A young hero and his planet, both seeking their destiny" or some such. But I won't. Only this: if you haven't read "Dune", you probably don't like fried chicken, either.

There is a reason why this has been hailed as one of the best sci-fi books ever written. I wish I could say the opposite and that you shouldn't believe the hype, but this is an epic masterpiece, with so many moving parts, and captivating characters that you become attached to. If you are into sci-fi, I don't think you'll be able to put this book down.

Full disclaimer here: this is a long book. But, the writing definitely keeps you engaged and there is no filler; there is a reason why this book is long. Once you finish the book you'll understand what I'm talking about.

As a side note, I am not sure what happened with David Lynch's adaptation of Dune. BUT, if it's true that Denis Villeneuve is being slated to make the next film adaptation of Dune then I'll be first in line to get tickets.

This is a book that will make you question everything you thought you knew. Paul and Jessica's decisions are dubiously ethical and well intentioned. We, the readers, are also met with the conditions of time and an interesting philosophical interpretation of it.
If you want to be challenged give this book a good long read, by you might need to read it in bits if you want to read other things as well. There is so much in these pages.
More than five decades after it was first released, “Dune” by Frank Herbert is a classic that extends beyond the conventions of science fiction. This is an epic story, a triumph of the imagination with a memorable plot, sharp writing, a fascinating setting and a great cast of characters. There are messages here on many levels--politics, ecology, religion, family, culture, resources, I can go on. Herbert’s insights and writing are as fresh today as they were when he penned this book more than 50 years ago. This is easily a great book and deserves a place of honor on your shelf. Highest recommendation.
