Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'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 is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. Frank Herbert's death in 1986 was a tragic loss, yet the astounding legacy of his visionary fiction will live forever.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Before today’s multivolume science fiction epics, there was Dune. More than 50 years on, it’s still a key source of in-jokes for the geek-cool crowd, up there with Tolkien and Star Wars. The story centers on the battle for dominance over the desert planet Arrakis, the only place in the universe where melange, a powerfully addictive spice that aids abilities like precognition and poison tolerance, can grow. Dune’s familial, military, and political intrigue is instantly thrilling; the audiobook’s movielike elements, including multiple performers and scene-setting sound effects, make it a perfect way to discover Arrakis for the first time or take a journey back.
A lot of cool made up words. Mon the fremen
£28 is absolutely ridiculous
This is one of the best books I have read and listened to. Sadly someone left a negative review because Scott Brick doesn’t narrate/s the entire book; this is an Audio Drama with numerous actors, so I wish they would amend their unfairly biased review.
