A friend recommended I read Dune Messiah and I bought Dune by mistake. It was a wise decision as I was captivated and eager to continue in the series..

Nach einer Diskussion auf einer Party mit zwei Science-Fiction Fans kurz vor den Ferien kam mir Dune wieder in den Sinn, wahrscheinlich (Douglas Adams einmal beiseite) den einzigen Science-Fiction Roman, den ich mich erinnere vor langer Zeit einmal gelesen zu haben. Ich konnte mich auch dank des Films mit Sting recht gut an die Geschichte erinnern (nach einigen wenigen Seiten fiel mir der Name des Verräters wieder ein), aber das war wider Erwarten unproblematisch, da es keinen richtigen Spannungsbogen gibt. Wir folgen einer Geschichte von der wir das Ende kennen da jedem Kapitel ein Rückblick auf das Leben des Paul Muad'Did vorangestellt ist. Was den Reiz des Buches ausmacht ist der Blick in die von Herbert kreierten Welt mit einer Mischung aus antiken, mittelalterlichen und früh neuzeitlichen Elementen. Trotz diesem Mischmasch von Gladatorenkämpfen, Feudalismus, Atombomben, Orient und kaltem Krieg ist diese Welt in sich stimmig und interessant und man kann sich sogar einige Gedanken mit in die unsrige nehmen. Sprachlich ist das Buch (im Original) wirklich gut.

I know some people who hate the movie and will not touch this book. I know a few who own and love the movie but have never read the book. I have lent DUNE to friends who could get no further than page 20 because it was too "out there" or too difficult, with its array of characters and glossary of made-up terms. But of all the people who have gotten past page 20- I don't know one who doesn't praise it among their absolute favorites. I am no exception.
I love sci-fi but don't read much of it because I prefer fantasy. DUNE feels like a perfect blend of the two. A war of noble houses set in space. Paul Atreides is heir to the duchy- and to say that he is well trained for the job would be an understatement. His father, Duke Leto, is given charge of Arrakis- a hellish desert-world and the sole source of "the spice" which the entire universe needs. A very prestigious assignment, but treachery and peril comes with it. Paul finds himself thrown into the mystery of Dune and its fierce natives, the Fremen. Is he the savior their prophecy speaks of?
I was first blown away by DUNE at the age of 16, and have since considered it "the one to beat". In 8 years, very few books have made me question that judgment: Game of Thrones, Foundation, Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game. I had to reread it to be sure I wasn't just naïve at the time. Was it really THAT great? Absolutely.

Das Buch ist super, da braucht man ja nicht viel dazu zu sagen, auch das Englisch ist gut verständlich, schönes Englischübungsbuch!
Aber nun zur Ausgabe. Das Buch ist schlecht gebunden. Man kann den gebundenen Rand der Seite nur mit Mühe und um die Ecke gucken lesen weil der Rand zu weit bedruckt ist. Außerdem wird im Text öfters für zwei oder drei Zeilen die Schriftgröße gewechselt. Auch nicht sonderlich schön. Fazit also: Das Buch ist inhaltlich unbedingt weiter zu empfehlen. Diese Ausgabe eignet sich aber nur zum durchschmökern, für den Bucherschrank würde ich eine andere Ausgabe bevorzugen.

I wasn't going to review since I don't agree with anyone else, but that's actually the perfect reason to review. The idea that the richest natural resource spot in the galaxy is not the empire's capital makes sense to me. The world's political nexus isn't Saudi Arabia & ours isn't Alaska. So there's no problem there. It's just the book is too dark, baroque, & now that I think of it absurd for me. How could you have this kind of multi-planetary empire without thinking computers? How could a few million Fremen conquer the millions of planets I'm pretty sure they mentioned? I don't like to nitpick, but was the rest of the universe so stupid that a planet could be conquered per Fremen? There is a book called "The Planet Buyer" buy Cordwainer Smith. Kid from world with life expanding drug takes over & prophecy is involved. Not as well-written perhaps, but check it out. In least it's illogicalness is open & kind of fun.

Dune is Frank Herbert's masterpiece about Paul Maud'Dib Atreides, descendants of the House Atreus of Homeric fame, and his battles with his arch-enemies, the Harkonnens and, eventually, with the combined forces of the galaxy. The first of six books in an unfinished series--Herbert died before he brought his series to a conclusion--this book is the best of the series.
Set far in the future, after humanity has not only left Earth, but humanity's origin is probably forgotten, the setting for this book is a neo-medieval world of strict castes, nobility and civilized warfare. The basic plot is rather standard: the young hero, Paul must come of age quickly when his father is treacherously killed by agents of the hated rivals. Since Paul loses his rightful throne, he must come of age among the violent indigenous population known as the Fremen.
Although Herbert does write the action scenes well, the plot is not the strong suit of the book--later books in the series have better plots. The strongest part of the book is the theme of religion and politics that runs through the book. Herbert combines many different religions in this future galaxy including Christianity, Islam and various eastern religions.
Herbert sets his hero, Paul, up as a messiah to the planetary population, the Fremen and possibly to the entire galaxy. This path may ultimately lead to a bloody jihad. However, Paul realizes that being a messiah is a dangerous path to take, ultimately ruinous to humanity as later books show. However, Paul's desire for power and the evilness of the alternate leaders, the corrupted by power emperor, the overly secretive female priesthood named the Bene Geserit, the no longer human Guild, and the entirely evil Harkonnens force Paul at every fork in the road to choose the path that leads to his anointing as messiah. Herbert thus creates a hero who is not as virtuous as he seems at first glance.
A final note: as with any good first book in a sci-fi/fantasy series, there is much that remains unexplained in this book. Anyone who says that they understand the entire book is either lying or missed something. Some of the mysteries in this book become explained in later books, and one--the reference to Richese--in the prequel recently co-written by Herbert's son. There is also a great deal of mysticism and musing on the general state of humanity, some of which was, frankly, over my head.
Therefore, if mysticism and unexplained mystery are not your cup of tea, then you should skip this book.

In "Dune," Frank Herbert has created a world. Not just a story of political intrigue, it is the story of three hundred years of a planet's life. It is also a vindiction of everyone who's ever said, "If I have what you need, then I'm making the demands." Beyond that, it is a fine dramatic work, into which the reader will be drawn. It sort of loses its thread in the middle section (the plot takes five years), but the descriptions of ecology and culture at the beginning and the thrilling ending more than make up for it. The only possible rival I can think of is the Star Wars series, but even the greatest sci-fi space opera in history has simplistic villains and a stock plot. Except for the Harkonnens, try to pinpoint one major villain (If you say the Imperials, you're wrong: They represent their interests, which end up being the same as the Atreides'. The Bene Gesserit? Any ill effects they have on Paul is merely an accidental result of their nature). There are few finer works created in any genre. Just once I would like to read "The Collected Sayings of Muad'dib" and Princess Irulan's other works. It's not often that a writer writes seven books at a time, but Frank Herbert has done it.

Thank you, Frank Herbert. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I first attempted to read DUNE when I was 13. I didn't understand it. I was bored by it. I decided all the hype around it was undeserved, and I cast it off.
The more fool, me. This is without doubt the best sci-fi book ever written, and perhaps the best book, period. It's changed the way I look at everything. When I was 17, I just decided to pick it up again for no reason--and I was in love. I've never been the same since. Paul, Jessica, Stilgar, Alia, even old Baron Harkonnen--the characters all found their way into my mind and heart. DUNE is a novel of incredible scope and power, ranging from musings on ecological themes to an exploration of the messianic desire that has always pervaded society. The time Herbert must have invested to research and create such a detailed universe took my breath away. I was riveted from the Introduction all the way through the Appendices. I'm still finishing the rest of the series, and while none of the other books have left the same impression on me, they are excellent books--especially CHILDREN OF DUNE. I advise all fans of great literature to pick up this book at once; you'll never really put it down.

Someone once told me that there are two types of science fiction: The type that makes you think ("1984") and the type that's just for fun ("Star Wars"). On rare occasions, however, a piece of science fiction comes along that is both fun and thought-provoking. That is "Dune."
I first read "Dune" when I was in high school. I loved it. Paul Atreides really was the perfect human being: Fighting the giant sand worms, building an alliance with the desert Freman and defeating those evil Harkonnens to become King of the Universe.
I read the book again several years later and this time the deeper meaning of "Dune" became clear to me. Okay, "spice = oil" might seem pretty basic, but there is so much more to the book than that. Rather than just Good Guys vs. Bad Guys, Frank Herbert gives us so many characters who you simply don't know what to make of. Do you like the Bene Gesserit? The Bene Tleilax? CHOAM?
The sequels to "Dune" are good. I especially liked "Children of Dune" and "God Emperor of Dune." Nothing, however, comes close to the original. It is a rare treat.

This book is not light reading.
That is, ironically, because it is so well written.
Herbert creates a universe so rich, so real, that he often needs to explain subtle parts of its history and environment to you. So it's not rapid-fire action at all times.
The story, though, is well worth it. One of the greatest ever written. I remember, years ago, reading that it had sold "ten million copies", some kind of record at the time. Surely it has sold more, now.
This novel is brilliant, and worth the effort. Think of the time it takes as the long drive from home to Disneyworld.
For those who care: One obvious thing Herbert was trying to examine was how a "hydraulic monopoly" effects society. This is when something essential to existence is controlled by a single authority.
He also looks deeply into politics, religion, and economics in general.
But it's all done in the context of the story, not as boring lectures, and you need never even be aware that it's happening, you can simply be captivated by the story itself.
