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.

"Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious." (Robert A. Heinlein)
I could probably go on and on about this novel but I think I'll make this brief instead. It's a good book. Very detailed and immensely ingrossing; however, as much as it is one of the pinnacles of classic science fiction, certain aspects of the book could, simply put, be better. On an adjoining matter, the narration is superb and the only negative thing I can say about it is that they could have used their multiple narrators to better effect than they actually did. Well worth listening to.
narrated beautifully with fantastic voice acting.
the story is beyond gripping, living up to and surpassing everything I had ever heard. A definitive classic and one of the most influential sci-fi novels
Joy to you who has not read this.
A world as wide and deep as the best. Plan on a retreat from most all else.
The story is amazing. The only change I would make is to the voice acting. Sometimes the narrator would speak characters' parts and other times the cast would. It was often jarring and sometimes confusing as to which character was actually speaking. I wish they had been more consistent. They had multiple voice actors, use them!
