It took me a while to get through this one! #chunkster

Really it wasn't until the last half that I finally started almost being able to understand what was happening 😅 Every other word, including names being new/made up was hard, and then the main characters were named Paul and Jessica?? It threw me off lol

I've heard there's a movie adaptation coming out later this year with a lot of celebrities. Could be good?! 😁

glitterkitty459 Continued: Between a pick and a so-so, just for being so confusing, but I'll round up 12h
Cortg Yeah, I was thinking I might want to read this one before the movie comes out. I'm not a big sci-fi person but I've heard this book is good, so we'll see! Thanks for your review!

I first learnt of this book via the David Lynch film, though the first in a series I have yet to read beyond this, which is my favourite sci fi book, yet ends in a self contained way which has never left me with a urge to go beyond this tale. I do intend to do so one day, but currently in no great rush

I try to focus as much as I can on reading for fun in December, hence all these wonderful genre books. My Xmas holiday officially starts after work on December 20 and I can hardly wait!

Gosh I'm really torn about this book. It's a case of if this book were written present day would it be as well loved? I really liked the mythology presented in Dune and the world building is stunning. I didn't like the idea of Space Muslims. The author seemed like he was taking words like hajj and jihad and twist them from their true meaning. I don't consider myself to be super "woke" or anything like that but I am sensitive at least. #53 #2019

Anyone else reading it for the first time, again? Looking forward to the movie?

I finally got to know this famous classic! 🎉 And I'm very impressed by the world building and all tje details Herbert put into his book. It's so fascinating!

Buechersuechtling Do you plan to read all of them or “just” the first one❓ (I can‘t remember all the details, to be honest, I probably forgot most of the plot but what I do remember is, that I really was struck when I read it many, many years ago.) 3mo
Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling I'm planning on reading at least the main books - which will take a while ? after that I'll see if I'm going to read the other books as well. "Being struck" is what I feel, too. Even though it sure is hard to remember all the details ? 3mo

As soon as I saw the new Deluxe edition of Dune I knew it had to be mine.

Sprayed edges, killer cover, and look at those end pages! 😍

There's also a huge picture on the back of the cover slip, but when it's all spread out, it's so big I can't take a proper picture atm. Gonna try later when I'm at home.

Such a gorgeous edition! ❤️

GrilledCheeseSamurai @Schlinkles I originally saw it on Wednesday and knew it had to be mine. It's a damn expensive book though so I left it behind (for the time being).

I read this many, many years ago and recently decided to listen to the audio book. The world building is fantastic. It was a long book that I did enjoy overall but there were patches of awesome. There were scenes/events that I just loved. I was excited to read about a new movie version next year with Josh Brolin and Jason Momoa 😊 Great sci-fi ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since I‘m reading this book I figured I‘d share that I read 15-20 pages a day... I know that‘s not much, but I was wondering how many pages a day do you read-ish and what book or just the ish. Anyone willing to reply?

Madelpadel I‘m reading this now! For this particular book I feel I can‘t fully understand if I just plow through, so I‘ve been reading a bout 20 pages a night and I still feel like I may need to give myself more time to digest! I‘m enjoying it so far, though. 4mo

Absolutely loved this damn book.
If you want some really good world building, and a literary universe within a single book that has wheels within wheels, give Dune a shot.
It's not known as one of the best sci-fi book ever written for nothing.
I checked it out for myself and absolutely adore it.
Did find it a bit hard to get into at first, as it throws a lot at you, but stick with it and the payoff is worth it.

This is an AWESOME book so far! I‘m only 157 pages in and I have a lot to go. Grab it up before the movie comes out in Dec of 2020. There is already one out from 84 but I‘m doing my best to avoid it until I‘m done. By god I will finish a book before it becomes a movie.

PetrozavaRR Little late to see this post but i managed to finish recently 4 books of the Dune saga.....the first one was absolutely breathtaking and i was mind blown!Unfortunately with every subsequent book it became more repetitive and hard to read(for me that is) and i really hope it's not the same for you! Enjoy the amazing journey!(and love the cover!)🤗👌 4mo

I finished the first volume from "Dune". The series is one of my favorite.

I love "Dune" not because of its political, religious and other themes, but because of the way the author describes the planet. When I read it, I can feel the sand under my feet and the Sun in my face. The adventure. The wilderness. The silence.

I hate Jessica. She complains all the time. And she controls his son. And I hate that the author made Chani a baby factory.

RaimeyGallant Sounds really interesting. 6mo

Book #55: Dune is often cataloged as one of the greatest science fiction stories ever told and the precursor to all science fiction that has come since. It is also frequently listed as the first book within the bestselling science fiction series of all time. These are all titles that the book has rightfully earned. Dune contains parallels in religion...

Just finished this epic of science-fiction and look forward to the new movie version. Thematically, I can see why it is being re-made, as there are a lot of themes related to nature and conservation which ought to have a broad appeal. It also has a Game of Thrones vibe which is definitely going to land well with viewers!
