Review: Dune

Dune (Dune, #1)Dune by Frank Herbert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had heard of Dune for years, but never put it on my “to read” list. It finally got added thanks to Tim Ferriss’s 5 bullet Fridays and I owe him a thanks.

The combination of sci-fi, conplex politics, a desert world, and a “messiah” type was spectacularly done. Part of me wants to say that the messiah is an overdone theme, but I don’t think it detracted. Rather I think Paul’s transition from a hero to something else…potentially an anti-hero or even a despot kept me engaged.

I think the uncertain future even Paul sees plays a large role in my own enjoyment. There is so much potential for the remaining series, and I am curious if it lives up to my hopes.
