Dune
Frank Herbert
Fantasy & Science Fiction
Aug 9, 2018
Inspired by a visit to the famed sand dunes of Oregon, Herbert delved into research on environmental science and related matters as he began to chart the long, complex backstory of his epic, which ultimately came to span some twenty-one thousand years of future history. Through canny and judicious textual references throughout his saga, he would use the imaginative foundation his investigations provided to convince readers that they were entering a milieu as gloriously irreducible as the world outside their windows. Herbert’s interstellar empire is dominated by what amount to feuding royal households and a variety of guilds (space pilots, cerebral Mentats, Sardaukar warriors, the Bene Gesserit sisterhood of mind witches) under an overarching Emperor.

As you read Dune, you feel like you're listening to a rising crescendo of a song... The slow-building of the story is delicious. You really know that a great and thundering climax is approaching.
