Publisher Description

• DUNE: PART TWO • THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE NOW IN THEATERS
Directed by Denis Villeneuve, screenplay by Denis Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts, based on the novel Dune by Frank Herbert • Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Dave Bautista, Christopher Walken, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Léa Seydoux, with Stellan Skarsgård, with Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem

Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time.


Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of Paul Atreides—who would become known as Muad'Dib—and of a great family's ambition to bring to fruition mankind'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 is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

An epic masterpiece!

I just finished this book for the third time since first reading it and the following five books over 35 years ago. It gets better every time I read it. I just finished reading the Foundation septology by Isaac Asimov, followed by the Space Odyssey quadrology by Arthur C. Clarke. I still find this book to be superior to any of those other giants of this genre. I can’t recommend Dune highly enough.

Prophetic, Wise, Guileful, Staggering!

Dune is not just a book or a story, it’s a Movement! The comparisons of Spice to modern day petroleum and the Fremen to Arabic people is obvious. But this is not a story where a “Western hero saves humanity (again)”. It’s a story of collaboration, loss, politics and waywardness. It has to be read and reread to savour and appreciate the timelessness of the tale. Power corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts Absolutely.
