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 Muad'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 it undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.… (més)

    La Fundació de Isaac Asimov (Patangel, JonTheTerrible, philAbrams)
    JonTheTerrible: The pace of these books are similar as well as the topics they cover: society and government. The science plays only a small role in both books but is present enough to successfully build the worlds in which the characters inhabit.

    Hyperion de Dan Simmons (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: It is difficult not to compare Dune and Hyperion, even though both series have major differences in terms of tone, style and philosophy. Those are two long, epic, elaborate and very ambitious sci-fi masterpieces where religion plays a key role. I would highly recommend the fans of one to check out the other.… (més)

    Lord Valentine's Castle de Robert Silverberg (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: Both books are a subtle blend of science fiction and fantasy while being truly epic stories. Although Dune remains a superior literary achievement in my view, Silverberg's Majipoor series is a credible alternative.

    sandstone78: Similar tropes in the form of human computers and a native species capable of granting youth, and the powerful woman trying to breed a special child- The Snow Queen seems on one level a response to Dune, taking many of the same elements and twisting them around, while going in quite different directions in other ways.… (més)

I first read Dune as a teenager over forty years ago and I thought then that this was one of great science fiction novels. Re-reading the book now has not changed my opinion very much.

Dune is set in a far future time where the galaxy is colonised by humans (although there are many hints that this is not really so - there is a lot of soul searching about whether particular characters are actually human or not) under a strict monarchy ruled by the Emperor. House Atreides is ordered from their home planet of Caladan to take stewardship of the desert planet Arrakis/Dune replacing their hated enemies House Harkonnen. Arrakis is the sole supplier of spice/melange, a psychotropic drug that expands the mind of the addict and allows Spaceship Guild Navigators to pilot starships across the cosmos. The book follows Paul Atreides as he comes of age as a man, learns his destiny and plots his revenge on House Harkonnen for the murder of his father.

The main strength of Dune is the depth of the world that Herbert describes: the languages, the political and cultural histories of the various societies we meet, the references to a richer galaxy of planets and peoples away from Dune. Clearly, Herbert has based the world of Arrakis on Islamic and Arabian desert cultures, which may be sensible as it is reasonable to assume that similar environments (all consuming desert life) might generate similar cultures.

The book is rather ‘trippy’ and navel-gazing with a bit too much talk about what might happen rather than what is happening. The battle and fight scenes are rather weak.

Definitely a classic, Herbert followed Dune with two other novels to form a loose trilogy and these have been followed by a number of books from other writers in the Herbert stable. ( )

Excellent writing and world building, however not enough character development for me to feel invested in anyone. ( )

Though often heralded as SciFi's answer to Lord of the Rings, Dune is truly one of a kind. It weaves together fantasy tropes and issues on politics, religion, and ecology surprisingly well. It is therefore a masterpiece of world-building, although personally, I felt like it suffered from some pacing issues.

You can easily tell how much thought and effort Herbert put into Dune. However, it seems that Arrakis is not my cup of tea (maybe because I come from a desert country myself) which is why I probably won't be reading any of the sequels or re-reading Dune itself. ( )

The Short of It:

I really enjoyed the world-building in this classic.

The Rest of It:

Here’s my disclaimer. I read this book during all of my kidney issues so I was often in a haze of pain while reading. BUT, even with all of that going on I enjoyed this story so much. I just can’t remember the finer details so I’ll try my best.

“Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for….” ~ Indiebound

I loved the characters that Herbert created. Paul is a charming lad, wise beyond his years and his love for his mother is what stands out here. Paul’s potential as a leader and his mother’s dedication to preserve his life at all costs is so genuine and sweet. The dry land, the search for every drop of water available, and the sand that surrounds them creates a dangerous climate.

This is classic sci-fi and holds up very well. I picked it up because I was interested in the new movie but wanted to read the book first. As it stands, I have yet to see the movie but I doubt it can be as good as the book. I say, read the book.

Why is Blanch’s influence on Dune worth recognizing? Celebrating Blanch is not a means to discredit Herbert, whose imaginative novel transcends the sum of its influences. But Dune remains massively popular while The Sabres of Paradise languishes in relative obscurity, and renewed public interest in Blanch’s forgotten history would be a welcome development.

Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy was famously inspired by Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. J. R. R. Tolkien’s background in medieval languages helped shape the mythology of Middle Earth. Frank Herbert’s Dune is no different, and rediscovering one of the book’s most significant influences is a rewarding experience.
 
One of the monuments of modern science fiction.

A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct. This every sister of the Bene Gesserit knows. To begin your study of the life of Muad'Dib, then, take care that you first place him in his time: born in the 57th year of the Padishah Emperor, Shaddam IV. And take the most special care that you locate Muad'Dib in his place: the planet Arrakis. Do not be deceived by the fact that he was born on Caladan and lived his first fifteen years there. Arrakis, the planet known as Dune, is forever his place.
from "Manual of Muad'dib" by the Princess Irulan

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.
Let us not rail about justice as long as we have arms and the freedom to use them.
The thing the ecologically illiterate don't realize about an ecosystem is that it's a system. A system! A system maintains a certain fluid stability that can be destroyed by a misstep in just one niche. A system has order, a flowing from point to point. If something dams the flow, order collapses. The untrained miss the collapse until too late. That's why the highest function of ecology is the understanding of consequences.
