😬 I can see a lot of promise in the ecology of Arrakis, the notion of what the worms represent, and in the interplanetary politics as a backdrop for a fairly overdone messiah story. However, between the stuffy dialogue and the incredibly odd amalgamation of world religions I just didn’t feel drawn into the story. It felt belabored with exposition and starved for surprise or suspense. Looking back from 2020 (I can’t speak as though I read it when it debuted) I view Dune as maybe a sort of proto-cli-fi story but I don’t feel the same hype as I was sold.
