This isquite simplythe most magnificent SciFi epic ever written.
The scope of Asimov's Foundation, the attention to detail and context of Tolkien's LotR, coupled with an unmatched visionary socioecological messianic narrative that is scarily relevant today.
Anyone who likes SciFi and who hasn't read this needs to get a copy. And read it. Now. Although this is the first half of the Dune series, personally I think books 14 constitute a proper story arc, But heck, I recommend the whole series, not just the first three books :)
This is such a magical book for me. I’m not even going to attempt to write an objective review. I simply don’t have the words.
Yes, this rating is based on emotion and on how this book affected me and my reading evolution over the years. And, frankly, that’s the best way to gauge it, anyway.
Long live the King!
The Dune series by Frank, not the son, form one of the pillars of my dreams over the decades since I read the first book. Somehow the imagery plays out in my mind far better than the attempts made by Hollywood.
Unfortunately, I donated my original set, with the original covers, when I moved a few years agothe new books don't smell the same and don't have the familiar paper feel I grew accustomed to while reading them during finals week year after year.
The blend of scienceaversion, exploitation of the naive by systematic manipulation of religion and witchcraft, and the harsh realities of life in a barren and mineral depleted desert is astounding.
I love these books! With this latest addition to the socalled Gollancz "Black Library", another classic has been immortalised. If you're looking for a lovely copy to keep, or for a gift, this one has much to like. The black fauxleather has writing imprinted in gold, and it is a nice looking copy. The print type however seems to be of old stock, and a little worn in terms of typenone of that precise digital typography here!
In term of the content, there's nothing too exciting. There are the three books of the original trilogy, of course (Dune, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune) with the Glossary and the maps as found in the original copies of Dune. There's enough been said in other reviews about the content, so I'll say little here other than Dune is great, the others are more demanding (although, admittedly, not as demanding as the socalled "Second Trilogy", published a decade or so later than these novels.)
However, it is the basic textthere's no added introduction or gilt edges (as in the 1987 Easton Press edition of Dune), there's none of the lovely John Schoenherr artwork (recommended by Frank Herbert himself) that was added to the 1999 edition of the Dune Gollancz hardback. It is about half the price of the Folio Press edition of Dune, though, and here you get the other two books as well.
But it gives you what you're expectinga lovely edition of the basic books to keep, and a worthy addition to the Black Library. The mythos the late Mr Herbert Has bequeathed to us either soaring eloquence of vision or just leaves the reader bored. I am of the former. This is mature, intellectual, dramatic science fiction,that still resonates as a warning about power and its dangers. I seem to read this every few years, and never tire, nor fail to gain a new insight. Simply put, glorious. First book (loosely based on story of Mohammed) is second best SF ever written. Books two and three, inevitably, fall off. As I love his style, the world he imagined is one I couldn’t live in. It’s not only the holeplots that makes me say this, but also the madness of this world: religion, superstition and state. Putting it into a Christian perspective this world is exactly the opposite of Jesus. Muad’Dib goes into the desert not to find discover himself, but because he was ashamed and disableda failure. The harsh reality of the desert power comes into a contradiction with water, their life is mélange while water is poison for the worms. I would say that water is my mélange and I think that this says all.
