Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'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 is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. Frank Herbert's death in 1986 was a tragic loss, yet the astounding legacy of his visionary fiction will live forever.

Synopsis:

In new, hardcover edition is the novel that shaped modern science fiction. Set on the desert planet Arrakis begins the story of a great family's plan to bring to fruition an unattainable dream. Winner of the first Nebula Award.

Aranzazu, May 6, 2007 (view all comments by Aranzazu)
When you get married, you have to accept your husband's obsessions. I had to accept endless speeches about Fremen and gom jabbars. A year later, I eventually read the book after a gamble, and I have to say not only I l-o-v-e Herbert's prose, but how amazed I felt about the story. Please, read this novel. Meet the Fremen. Respect the water and the treasures from our planet. Maybe we need Arrakis' Epics more than ever.
