Staff Reviews


A classic sci-fi epic, Dune is the grand story of Paul Atreides, heir to his father the Duke and taught the mysterious ways of the Bene Gesserit from his mother. Between the complicated political tensions that unfold as the family moves to the dessert planet of Arrakis, the challenges of the harsh landscape and the many secrets of the people who live there, this book soon englufed me in its story. The description on the back of the book doesn't say much about the story, but the more I read the more I realized you can't quite put it into so few words, I definitey recommend this book for fans of sci-fi.

Description


One of the preeminent books in science fiction, this classic has endured in the imaginations of readers for over thirty years. It tells the tale of the desert planet Arrakis, which produces the "spice" needed for interstellar navigators to ply their way. The Galactic Emperor has transferred custody of the planet to the House of Atreides from the House of Harkonnen. However, the evil House of Harkonnen has other plans, and casts the young Duke Paul Atreides out into the desert to die. There, Paul comes into contact with the Fremen, the indigenous inhabitants of the planet, who can help him regain his position. But Paul may be more than a Duke; he may be the end-point of a genetic breeding program designed to create a messiah.
