    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneThere's a characteristically witty essay by Borges about a man who rewrites Don uixote many centuries after Cervantes He publishes a novel with the same title containing the same words in the same order But as Borges shows you the different cultural context means it's a completely new book What was once trite and commonplace is now daring and new and vice versa It just happens to look like Cervantes's masterpieceSimilarly imagine the man who was brave or stupid enough to rewrite Dune in the early 21st century Like many people who grew up in the 60s and 70s I read the book in my early teens What an amazing story Those kick ass Fremen All those cool weird sounding names and expressions they use They even have a useful glossary in the back Th

    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneNo one should argue the importance Dune It laid the foundations for a great deal of the themes and constructs in modern science fiction Frank Herbert was as important to the genre as Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke Unfortunately just like them he's uite dated and his books can be a labor to read One thing he maintained from old science fiction was prim and scientific dialogue that no one would ever actually speak I've known many scientists and they don't talk like this You're not going to convince me a child doesThe stuffy dialogue is inserted into even stuffier narrative until it feels like nothing is organic about Herbert's prose This is a terrible tragedy when you've got a world that he put so much effort into building and it is an amazing feat of world building technically interplanetary building But

    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneNope Sorry I don't get itI was able to finish it by listening to the audiobook but I was bored throughout the whole 21hSo many descriptions anyone else found the way Paul's mom describing him kinda weirdAnd let's not even mention how many times I laughed at the main female character being called JessicaI'm sure I'll get plenty of comments telling me it's a classic and it brought so much to the genre At the end of the day my rating is always based on my enjoyment

    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneIn my head the purpose of this review is very clear It is to convince YOU to read this book Yes you Waste time no Go grab a copyMachiavellian intrigue mythology religion politics imperialism environmentalism the nature of power All this set in a mind boggling frighteningly original world which Herbert ominously terms as an effort at prediction Dune had me hookedFirst impressionThe very first stirring I felt upon opening the yellowed pages of Dune was that of stumbling upon an English translation of an ancient Arabic manuscript of undeniable power and potence which had an epic story to narrate The tone was umistakably sombre and I realized Herbert was not her

    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneDuneNo other single syllable means as much to the science fiction genre a single word that conjures images of sandworms spice wars great battles between rival dynastic families and a massively detailed and intricately crafted universe No wonder this is widely regarded as not just a Science Fiction masterpiece but a literary achievement as well Like a study of Shakespeare the reader finds that this is an archetype upon which many influences and imitators have based their works The complexity and depth of the creation is staggering and I am continually astounded at the discipline with which Herbert must have focused his imaginationThis is the book upon which Herbert would base his greatest series and one that would outlive him as his son has continued to expand and add detail to the vast immaculate tapestry woven by a t

    mobi É docóÑ Frank Herbert DuneIf this is the gold standard against which all science fiction must measure and be judged let's just blow our brains out right now and call it a day As far as I can tell Dune largely inspires two points of view One marvels at its historical importance and world building uniue fascinating complex rich and the other dislikes the stilted writing but does so apologetically because Frank Herbert couldn't help the fact that he wrote science fiction in the 1960s and that Edward Said hadn't done his thing yet Come on people of the w
