    No 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 quite 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 No 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 quite 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 does.The stuffy dialogue is ins...

    Dune.No 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 comple Dune.No 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 imagination.This is the book upon which Herbert would ba...

    I m sort of tempted to try this again I don t think it ll be worth the hassle though I could never give Dune five stars because I really struggled to get into the novel in the beginning It has taken me almost two months to read This, for me, is a very long time to spend on a book It took me so long to read because I found the writing style incredibly frustrating I had to read whole chapters again so I could get the gist of the plot This wasso in the beginning, which I found particul I m sort of tempted to try this again I don t think it ll be worth the hassle though I could never give Dune five stars because I really struggled to get into the novel in the beginning It has taken me almost two months to read This, for me, is a very long time to spend on a book It took me so long to read because I found the writing style incredibly frustrating I had to read whole chapters again so I could get the gist of the plot This wasso in the beginning, which I found particularly hard to read because of the author s way of shifting between the thoughts of multiple characters I found this very annoying however, I persevered over my initial despondency towards the writing, and plodded on through the book I m glad I did so because in the end I d...
