Erin (lovejazz) Set in the far future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar empire where planetary dynasties are controlled by noble houses that owe an allegiance to the imperial House Corrino, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides (the heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and heir of House Atreides) as he and his family accept control of the desert planet Arrakis, the only source of the 'spice' melange, the most important and valuable substance in the cosmos. The story explores the complex, multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion as the forces of the empire confront each other for control of Arrakis.

Published in 1965, it won the Hugo Award in 1966 and the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel. Dune is frequently cited as the world's best-selling sf novel.

Erin (lovejazz) I'm hoping to start this one tonight. Anyone interested is welcome to read it with me. The more the merrier.

I recently reread these. I am happy to discuss the book with you as you read. I love these books!

Erin (lovejazz) Sounds good, Katrisa. This is my first time reading it, and I Donny read much in the way of high sci fi. So, I’m still getting acclimated. But I’m about 50 pages in so far and enjoying it. This idea of tapping into different parts of our memory and these ideas about what make us human are interesting for sure.

I LOVE the prequel books that his son wrote with Kevin J Anderson too.
