Synopsis

Before The Matrix, before Star Wars, before Ender's Game and Neuromancer, there was Dune: winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written.



Melange, or 'spice', is the most valuable - and rarest - element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person's life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis.



Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe.



When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis from the noble House Harkonnen to House Atreides, the Harkonnens fight back, murdering Duke Leto Atreides. Paul, his son, and Lady Jessica, his concubine, flee into the desert. On the point of death, they are rescued by a band for Fremen, the native people of Arrakis, who control Arrakis' second great resource: the giant worms that burrow beneath the burning desert sands.



In order to avenge his father and retake Arrakis from the Harkonnens, Paul must earn the trust of the Fremen and lead a tiny army against the innumerable forces aligned against them.



And his journey will change the universe.

Customer Reviews

A must-have. I don’t have better words for such a masterpiece. More than ‘simply’ a sci-fi book, it is an essential piece of reading: vivid characters, engrossing adventures and unforgettable atmosphere – Herbert has given us a work of epic scope expertly crafted. Plus, the cover is absolutely fantastic.

Having wiped out advanced computers in a crusade against artificial intelligence, a galactic empire has rebuilt itself by twisting humanity into new forms. Human computers, fuelled by cognition-enhancing drugs, calculate the vast distances between the stars while navigators, mutated beyond recognition by the 'spice' which gives them their power, hurl huge starships through the void by folding space with their minds. Dune tells the story of the struggle between two families for control of the only planet on which the spice can be produced, and it’s a planet that Frank Herbert has imagined so thoroughly that you’ll feel the sand in your shoes as you read. And the film is awesome. Despite what practically everyone says.
