Before The Matrix, before Star Wars, before Ender's Game and Neuromancer, there was Dune: winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Melange, or 'spice', is the most valuable - and rarest - element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person's life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis.

Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe. When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis from the noble House Harkonnen to House Atreides, the Harkonnens fight back, murdering Duke Leto Atreides.

Paul, his son, and Lady Jessica, his concubine, flee into the desert. On the point of death, they are rescued by a band for Fremen, the native people of Arrakis, who control Arrakis' second great resource: the giant worms that burrow beneath the burning desert sands. In order to avenge his father and retake Arrakis from the Harkonnens, Paul must earn the trust of the Fremen and lead a tiny army against the innumerable forces aligned against them. And his journey will change the universe.

Untitled
A dazzlingly complex space epic, Dune takes place within an interplanetary feudal society, where natural resources are limited and violence always looms. Paul Atreides is born into power, but his struggle to keep it leads him into mystic religious orders, hidden desert communities, and painful rites of passage. Full of mind-bending drama and social analysis, Dune deserves its huge cult following. - Josh (QBD)

Untitled
Dune is the greatest sci-fi story ever written.The story is set in a distant future in which mankind has spread across the galaxy, inhabiting thousands of worlds, and yet the use of almost all technology has been outlawed by religions decree. Feudal houses rule entire planets, all ruled over by the emperor. At the heart of it all is Paul Atreides and His planet, Arrakis - also known as Dune. - Matthew (QBD)

Untitled
A science fiction classic. Giant desert worms and super powers with post-colonial themes and religious ethics. Well drawn characters, hundreds of quotable moments and highly entertaining. A must read for anyone who loves classics or science-fiction 'we who carry the name of concubine - history will call us wives.' - Meg (QBD)

Frank Herbert's Dune is a masterpiece of sci-fi storytelling and world building. It's kind of like game of thrones but in space. - Ethan (QBD)

Frank Herberts Dune is an excellent read for anyone interested in the sci-fi realm. The author describes a universe so engaging, you cant help but want to read more (of which he is quite prolific, so settle in!). I really enjoy the depth he employs in both his characters, as well as the worlds, politics and creatures he creates. A read you won't be disappointed with! - Glen (QBD)
