Review: Dune

Dune-0Title: Dune (1965)
Author: Frank Herbert
Pages: 884
Series: Dune #1


It feels good to finally check this science fiction classic off of my to-read list. I was expecting a slow, dry slog, but I found Dune to be surprisingly engaging and accessible. The worldbuilding and character building are top notch and I can see why the desert planet of Arrakis is such a legendary setting. I can’t say that I enjoyed every aspect of the story, but I certainly appreciate Dune’s place in the Pantheon of the genre and am glad to have read it. Looking ahead, I’m excited to see how Denis Villeneuve adapts this for the big screen.

★★★½ out of 5
