Shay | 862 comments Was Dune a re-read for you? One of my favorite Sci-fi books. Dune and Arthur C. Clark made me want to read more science fiction. Always been afraid to go back and read it again thinking that my memories of the book are better than the book actually was. If it was a re-read, did the book hold up well?


message 3: by Whisper19 (new)

Whisper19 | 57 comments i didn't re-read it, but i plan to before the end of the year - my goal is to read all the books of the Dune universe. so-wish me luck :)

well, if you're a fan of SF you should read it. it's good, and the universe of Dune is amazing, well thought out and the characters are very memorable, and there are really good quotes there as well
