Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family-and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream. A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what it undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.… (mer)

    Stiftelsen av Isaac Asimov (Patangel, JonTheTerrible, philAbrams)
    JonTheTerrible: The pace of these books are similar as well as the topics they cover: society and government. The science plays only a small role in both books but is present enough to successfully build the worlds in which the characters inhabit.
  2. 153
    Hyperion av Dan Simmons (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: It is difficult not to compare Dune and Hyperion, even though both series have major differences in terms of tone, style and philosophy. Those are two long, epic, elaborate and very ambitious sci-fi masterpieces where religion plays a key role. I would highly recommend the fans of one to check out the other.… (mer)

    Lord Valentine's Castle av Robert Silverberg (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: Both books are a subtle blend of science fiction and fantasy while being truly epic stories. Although Dune remains a superior literary achievement in my view, Silverberg's Majipoor series is a credible alternative.

    sandstone78: Similar tropes in the form of human computers and a native species capable of granting youth, and the powerful woman trying to breed a special child- The Snow Queen seems on one level a response to Dune, taking many of the same elements and twisting them around, while going in quite different directions in other ways.… (mer)

Good construction of a social structure is one of the features that makes this a good book. It flows well, and makes comment on how politics works and is very plausible. ( )

Dune is a 1965 science fiction novel by American author Frank Herbert.

Set in the distant future in the midst of a feudal interstellar society in which several noble houses control planets and, in turn, are governed by a galactic emperor. Duke Leto, head of House Atreides, must move his family from his paradisiacal home planet of Caladan to the desert planet Arrakis, known as Dune. The climate in Dune is hostile, but it has incalculable significance, its desert to the south is the only place in the galaxy where a valuable commodity called "melange" or "spice" is extracted. Spice is a highly addictive drug that prolongs life and increases mental abilities (as a side effect makes the user's eyes deep blue) and is also necessary for space navigation, which requires a kind of multidimensional awareness and prediction that only the drug gives and therefore, it is essential for the survival of their society. Spice mining is dangerous, not only because of sandstorms and attacks by the nomadic Fremen peoples native to the planet, but because the noise attracts giant sandworms, hundreds of meters long.

This is the story of young Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto. Paul's mother, Leto's concubine, Lady Jessica, is an acolyte of Bene Gesserit, an exclusively female religious sisterhood that pursues mysterious political goals and exercises superhuman physical powers. The sisters have been involved in millennia of eugenic programming and, although Jessica was instructed by Bene Gesserit to have a daughter, for Leto's sake she gave birth to a son, Paul, who may be the culmination of their breeding program. Paul is trained in war by Leto's advisers to prepare for Arrakis and reveals to have prophetic dreams.

The novel focuses on political intrigue over control of the planet Arrakis (or Dune), between House Atreides, House Harkonnen, which controlled Dune and the Fremen, the planet's native nomadic people. Paul evolves into a kind of T. E. Lawrence-like figure, using religious fanaticism to lead a Fremen insurgency that defeats the Harkonnens, corralls the Emperor and places Paul on the imperial throne.

Dune remains important today because it is a product of its era, the 1960s, when counterculture was installed as an anti-establishment phenomenon that developed in much of the western world. The aggregate movement gained momentum as the United States Civil Rights Movement continued to grow and, with the expansion of the American government's extensive military intervention in Vietnam, would later become revolutionary for some. As the 1960s progressed, generalized social tensions also developed in relation to other issues and tended to flow along generational lines in relation to human sexuality, women's rights, traditional modes of authority, experimentation with psychoactive drugs and different interpretations of the 'American dream'. It was at this time that many of the themes currently prevalent in universities and under debate in society, began.

The book covers feminist concepts in a certain way, particularly with the character Jessica and the all-female group, Bene Gesserit. On the other hand, there is also extensive concern with ecological ideas, mirrored today with the intensification of the effects of global warming and the specter of a global water scarcity. The Melange spice is almost a hybrid between oil and its importance in the industrialized world and lysergic drugs, evoking themes such as human potential and altered states of consciousness, but also the revolution of developing countries against imperialism and declining empires. And the continuing political upheaval in the Middle East, as Fremen can be seen from revolutionaries or even terrorists, in whose messianic legends Paul is identified as the one who will take them to paradise, and by participating in their culture is transformed into the prophet Muad ' Dib. Religion is central in the context of Dune, here it is a mixture of Judeo-Christian tradition with Islam and elements of Zen Buddhism.

Its influence can be seen from Star Wars to Game of Thrones, its scope being only comparable to Lord of the Rings.

However, despite all this, what I think is most interesting about Dune is how its focus is purposely non-technological, on computers or robots. Centuries before the events described in the novel, humans revolted and destroyed all thinking machines and a new concept was raised 'man cannot be replaced'. This decisive moment, known as Jihad Butleriana, resulted in a spiritual awakening, which put into practice the religious structures that we see in 'Dune'. This reduction in the emphasis on technology shifts the focus back to people, political intrigue, the human condition and its moral dilemmas. It also allows for the presence of a religious mysticism that is unusual in other works of science fiction.

In short, 'Dune' is truly epic, layered and meticulously constructed. ( )

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.


I last read [b:Dune|43419431|Dune|Frank Herbert|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1546269682l/43419431._SY75_.jpg|3634639] more than a decade ago and saw both the movie and the TV mini-series about as long ago. From this long ago, and from being such a stable in the science fiction mindspace, I remember a lot of the general things that would happen, but had forgotten most of the details. Unfortunately, I think that might be the best way to remember it.

On a positive note, there are a lot of interesting points to the world building. The idea of a science fiction universe that abandoned computers long ago--for reasons only hinted at--in favor of human super computers is pretty cool; as is the idea that most all space travel is controlled by a Guild of spacefarers with truly massive ships needed to carry everyone else from place to place. There really is a lot to explore there. And then the planet of Arakkis/Dune itself is just weird and fascinating and dangerous enough to make a solid setting.

That being said, the writing and a few of the plot points unfortunately are feeling their age. There is a lot more undefined psychic mumbo jumbo and seeing the future on a scale than I tend to like in science fiction, something much more common in the 60s when Dune was written. Also from that era is the point of view. Rather than the more common close first/third person points of view you see now, Dune is written in a third person omniscient point of view, jumping from head to head to fit the needs of the story. It's interesting at times to get another point of view, but for the most part just jarring.

Stylistically, the book is split into three parts. The first section is pretty solid, setting everything up. But at the very end of the first section, our main character Paul essentially becomes a god, capable of seeing a wide variety of future paths, which is a potentially interesting way to take the story... that ends up not quite paying off. From there, the story got a lot weirder and less interesting. On top of that, I just couldn't care about the chapters focused on the baddies (the Harkonnens). They seem corrupt and evil for the point of being the bad guys and I just don't really care about what they're up to.

All that being said, it's an interesting story and perhaps worth reading once in your life just for the context it provides. One thing I hadn't noticed before was just how similar the Freemen of Dune are similar to the Aiel of the Wheel of Time. Perhaps it's a general 'those thought savages by everyone else raised in a hard land become the ultimate warriors' troupe, but it seems even more similar than that. I wonder if that was intentional.

Edit: HAH!

The Wheel of Time has some very Tolkien- and Herbert-inspired sections, and is generally considered to be a highly original setting, even if it’s true that the Aiel are inspired by the Fremen. -- Brandon Sanderson on FAQ Friday

Uma estonteante mistura de aventura e misticismo, ecologia e política, este romance ganhador dos prêmios Hugo e Nebula deu início a uma das mais épicas histórias de toda a ficção científica. Duna é um triunfo da imaginação, que influenciará a literatura para sempre. Esta edição inédita, com introdução de Neil Gaiman, apresenta ao leitor o universo fantástico criado por Herbert e que será adaptado ao cinema por Denis Villeneuve, diretor de A chegada e de Blade Runner 2049.

A very good, if somewhat unusual, read. The pacing is fairly even, which is impressive considering the narrative dwells unexpectedly long on some things, and scurry fast past others. As a for instance, the second chapter informs the reader of an upcoming major and terrifying plot development as inevitable, only then to spend about a third of the book before this development comes to pass. This does contribute a terrific sense of foreboding to the early part of the book, true, but it also leaves a surprisingly small amount of space to deal with the repercussions that the narrative fairly early convinces one are really the point.

Which leads to a slightly unusual reading experience. Adding to this is Herbert's muddling of realistic (if heightened) skills and abilities, pseudo-plausible science fiction future skills and abilities, and outright mysticism in such a way that I as the reader am often not quite sure when something is a con the character is pulling to make it _seem_ like they have supernatural talents, when something is a non-supernatural talent so honed and skilled it legitimately seems (and might as well be) supernatural, and when something is actual, inexplicably supernatural. This, too, is not a bad thing -- far from it -- but it does contribute to the slightly unsual feel of the narrative. Finally, there is the use of third person narration with random insights -- a single paragraph can hop back and forth between several characters, showing you one's thoughts and then another's without warning. Potentially a confused mess in a less skilled writer's hands, burt Herbert handles it so elegantly I was never in doubt as to whose thoughts I was being shown.

The story itself is good, though it is the telling and the highly analytical, intelligent cast that populates it that makes it truly great. I'd not recommend the book to everyone, though. You should ideally have some slight liking of stories with political intrigue, I should think, and/or a well-developed science fiction backdrop to the same. Some tolerance for an occasionally dry narration style (as mentioned most of the characters are highly analytical, if with differing approaches and levels of skill) would probably be a boon, too. But for me, this was very good indeed. I recall trying to read it once at a young age and not getting quite into it, but as an adult, revisiting it was a decision I'm very happy I made. A classic for a whole bunch of good reasons. ( )

Why is Blanch’s influence on Dune worth recognizing? Celebrating Blanch is not a means to discredit Herbert, whose imaginative novel transcends the sum of its influences. But Dune remains massively popular while The Sabres of Paradise languishes in relative obscurity, and renewed public interest in Blanch’s forgotten history would be a welcome development.

Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy was famously inspired by Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. J. R. R. Tolkien’s background in medieval languages helped shape the mythology of Middle Earth. Frank Herbert’s Dune is no different, and rediscovering one of the book’s most significant influences is a rewarding experience.
 
One of the monuments of modern science fiction.

The thing the ecologically illiterate don't realize about an ecosystem is that it's a system. A system! A system maintains a certain fluid stability that can be destroyed by a misstep in just one niche. A system has order, a flowing from point to point. If something dams the flow, order collapses. The untrained miss the collapse until too late. That's why the highest function of ecology is the understanding of consequences.
