Book Review of Dune (Dune Chronicles, Bk 1)

Dune (Dune Chronicles, Bk 1)
reviewed on + 2 more book reviews

Dune is a powerful work of incredible depth. It is engrossing and moving and I daresay by far the best book I have ever read. Herbert is a philosopher pure and simple and has put much time into the details of his fictional world, even including a detailed history of various things mentioned throughout the book such as the "Orange Catholic Bible". If you have seen David Lynch's movie, please don't judge the book on that.
