LOOK DAMN IT OMGMel 🖤🐶🐺🐾••••••••••••••••I was so worried that I wouldn't understand a thing in this book I will admit there are some things that went over my head but for the most part I figured it out I remember a billion and 65 years ago I watched the movie and was like what the Basically all I remember is Sting and sandworms I would love to watch it again and see if I understand it after reading the book I'm still not sure what all the spices were about on Arrakis I keep thinking it's like their farming like we would farm corn or tobacco etc I could be wrong and I didn't get the connection between the spice and the sandworms Is it like a drug to them I did read in the back of the book that is was like a drug when taken in small uantities and really addictive when taken in large uantities and that Muad'Did felt his prophesies were because of the spice I liked Duke Leto and I hated that he was betrayed not long after they got to Arrakis There is always some twat out there causing trouble I really enjoyed Paul's character and his mother Jessica They seemed like really strong people and adapted very well in everything they were put through I didn't really pay too much attention to the other characters or I guess I should say I didn't have many thoughts about them With the exception of the ones that betrayed them I really enjoyed when Paul and Jessica had to travel to get away from the evil Baron Harkonnen before they were killed too I don't know why but I enjoyed their little journey I think they were both great in their roles when they were found by the Freman and showed they were a force to be reckoned with Now maybe I'm getting this all wrong but I'm trying to tell it through the way I saw it in my mind I don't understand how Paul's sister Alia was an abomination That one must have went over my head too It might have had something to do with the poison Jessica took to become the Reverend Mother I'm not sure but I know some of my goodreads friends that read this will get me sorted out Other than the sandworms and traitorous people on Arrakis I was most freaked out by the thought of the water issue I would NOT was to live somewhere there was a water shortage And the part where they were talking about selling foot water I can't even Which basically means your stinky foot sweat Overall I really liked the book I enjoyed traipsing through this desert with Paul and his mother Only in book form though not in real life Since they are doing re makes of about a million different movies I wish they would re make this one because I think it would be really awesome I would like to see this land come to life in today's time I don't know if I'm going to continue with the series as I have heard this is the best one and the others get confusing But I would like to see how Paul is as a ruler and what all happens to them or maybe not depending on what all happens If anyone can answer any of the things I was confused with that would be helpful Also I have seen some pictures on here of this really cool Dune book with art in it Does anyone have a link of where to get that book or is it still available Thank you MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

A deluxe hardcover edition of Frank Herbert’s epic masterpiece a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all timeThis deluxe hardcover edition of Dune includes· An iconic new cover· Stained edges and fully illustrated endpapers· A beautifully designed poster on the interior of the jacket· A redesigned world map of Dune· An updated Introduction by Brian HerbertSet. No one should argue the importance Dune It laid the foundations for a great deal of the themes and constructs in modern science fiction Frank Herbert was as important to the genre as Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke Unfortunately just like them he's uite dated and his books can be a labor to read One thing he maintained from old science fiction was prim and scientific dialogue that no one would ever actually speak I've known many scientists and they don't talk like this You're not going to convince me a child doesThe stuffy dialogue is inserted into even stuffier narrative until it feels like nothing is organic about Herbert's prose This is a terrible tragedy when you've got a world that he put so much effort into building and it is an amazing feat of world building technically interplanetary building But unlike JRR Tolkien who he is so freuently compared to Herbert didn't make sure to include a great story in his world Instead he included a story that freuently illustrated how clunky an artificial world can be even if it's lovingly crafted I struggled to attach or find interest in anyone yet they're archetypes than human beings whose logic races past modern skepticism and whose dialogue is cloyingly artificial the way people cared for the Hobbits Dwarves and Rangers In his world building Tolkien at least saved himself from being dated by antedating himself and even with his illuminated prose wrought characteristics in just one protagonist than all of Dune's cast Even the political intrigue Herbert tries to fall back on was overdone in the Spy genre decades before he started this book All fans of the Genre genres should appreciate Herbert's massive contributions but they shouldn't pretend to enjoy the books if they don't and they should be wary of certain pitfalls typical of science fiction that survived into his landmark work

Dune Author Frank HerbeA journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib he will 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 ficti. People often forget that this series is what innovated our modern concept of science fiction up until Neuromancer and The Martix at least Dune took the Space Opera and asked if it might be than spandex dildo shaped rockets and scantily clad green women Herbert created a vast and complex system of ancient spatial politics and peoples then set them at one another's throats over land money and drugsDune is often said to relate to Sci Fi in the same way that Tolkien relates to Fantasy I'd say that as far as paradigm shift this is widely true Both entered genres generally filled with the odd childish and ridiculous and injected a literary sensibility which affected all subseuent authorsFew will challenge the importance of Star Wars' effect on film and storytelling in general but without Dune there would be no Star Wars Princess Alia the desert planet the Spice the Bene Gesserit and Leto II all have direct descendants in the movies It is unfortunate that Lucas seems to have forgotten in these later years that his best genius was pilfered from Herbert Campbell and KurosawaThough I have heard that the later books do not capture the same eclectic energy as the first Dune itself is simply one of the most original and unusual pieces of Sci Fi ever written Read it Starship Troopers Ringworld Neuromancer and Snowcrash and you'll know everything you need to about Sci Fi that you want
