After facing masses of rejection letters, Frank Herbert finally published Dune in 1965. More than thirty years later, his magnificent Dune chronicles have sold more copies than any other science fiction novels in history. This first book is set on the desert planet Arrakis, a world drawn as vividly and terrifyingly as any in literature. Dune begins the story of the man known as Maud'dib, a hero who will guide his great family in their ambition to bring about humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream to found the perfect society. Perhaps only J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings has as loyal a following as Frank Herbert's masterpiece. But no work of science fiction has had as profound an imaginative influence. "Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious." (Robert Heinlein, master sci-fi writer)

First let me acknowledge that, as a book published in 1965, Dune contains a few elements that are likely to be problematic to the modern reader. The world depicted (which is an active choice made by the aut...

5.0 #Audiobook Review: Dune by Frank Herbert
I often say that Duke is one of the best books ever written, a "classic;" however, I hadn't read it in at least 15 years. Now that I'm such an audiobook fan, I wanted to revisit Dune to discover if I still enjoyed it. The answer is YES! The story of Paul Muad'Dib, the heir to the Atreides dukedom,...
