Update 82817Re read Number 13 I cry when Paul meets Gurney I shiver when Jessica consoles Chani I m awestruck by the peaks and troughs of time free will and the weakness in Paul even as he heroically strives against the evil that is about to be unleashed upon the universe sighPerfection Easily the number one book I ve ever read I waver sometimes but right now it is my absolute favorite Original ReviewThis is a phenomenal classic of literatureIt s not just science fiction It transcends science fiction as a fascinating discussion of free will versus inevitability Can the Jihad be denied Can Paul ever really avoid his own death despite seeing every time line play out with him as the butt of every cosmic joke Can even cruelty or mercy even remain comprehensible after such knowledgeYes I think this work outdoes Nietzsche It certainly does a great job of making us care about the uestionIs this all Is this just a work that pays great justice to philosophy of action and inaction Or is the novel merely a clever play at turning the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle into the physical embodiment of a man It is that of course The Kwisatz Haderach can be many places at once and he can be both alive and dead at the same time just like that certain catIs the novel a coming of age tale first set as a mirror against his father Leto only then to mirror the whole universe that had just turned against him Yes of course He was after all both the product of all his upbringing and his genes embodying the uestion of nature versus nurture He was taught within many schools of martial arts and assassins as well as training the mind in both the schools of the Mentats with their pure logic and that of the mystics the Bene Gesserit that allows complete control over the body down to the cellular level And if this training wasn t enough he was deeply schooled in politics leadership and the meaning of loyalty The boy was raised right Of course that is nothing without ninety generations of genetic bloodline tampering from the Bene Gesserit right To become the fulcrum between cellular memory tapping the minds and lives of all your genetic ancestors as well as tapping the ability to fold time and space to become the eye of a storm of timeWhat a damn brilliant setup for one tiny character no His training links to the unlocking of his genes and to the life extending and enveloping spice Melange to make him not merely aware of time in a theoretical sense but eventually to be unable to discern what was in the past the present or the future Here s a true Super Man well beyond NietzscheAnd don t believe for one second that this serious discussion about what would make a superior man makes for dull reading No We ve got PLOT that s probably some of the most exciting and visceral in all of literature driving us right into the web of intrigue vengeance treachery and galactic politics To uote the text we ve got Plans within Plans and it hardly stops there We know the House Atreides is falling into a trap laid by the Emperor and House Harkonnen and yet free will and pride prevents any chance to avoid it The setup is brilliant and extremely political giving us character sketches of some of the most brilliant and memorable characters of all timeDuke Leto the Red Duke the most honorable and beloved leaderDuncan Idaho the emotional and intuitive heroGurney Halleck archetypal loyalist and troubadourLady Jessica the woman who ought to have had all honor in life but was unjustly reviled and set aside for political necessity Chani being both her mirror and her eventual gloryAnd of course my favorite character of all time Paul Muad dib Atreides the one that would prevent the greater evils he foresaw and went to enormous lengths and sacrifice to achieve but who eventually failed in his task because even a god cannot overcome destiny Or the will of so many minds set as oneSo damn brilliantFrank Herbert spent five years writing this treasure working and reworking it until he published it at age 25 None of his other works come close to this masterpiece and there s little wonder It was birthed fully formed like Athena from Zeus s head with enormous forethought and care The worldbuilding was just as carefully formed from the ecology of Arrakis and the life cycles of the sandworms to the history and the creation of the Fremen from their mild beginnings as Zensunni Wanderers adherents to the Orange Catholic Bible to their history of oppression so like those of those who are Jewish to their settling and hardening of their bodies and souls in the wastes of Arrakis also just like the Jewish who carved out a place for themselves in Israel Current politics aside this was a very potent idea before 1965 when Herbert wrote this and indeed the core is still just as powerful when you turn it back to MuslimsThe Galactic culture is rich and detailed The CHOAM economic consortium with their monopoly on space travel and their need for the Spice to allow them to see a short period into the future to plot a safe course before folding space The Empire is caught on a knife s edge between a single power and every other House who sit in the possibility of putting aside all their suabbles for the sole purpose of checking the Emperor if they so desired And Duke Atreides was such a possible popular leader among all the Great Houses which was the primary reason the Emperor wanted him dead And of course we have our Villains The Baron Harkonnen has always been a crowd pleaser Brilliant in his own right devious and able to corrupt anyone with just the right sorts of pressure including a certain absolutely trustworthy doctor we might mentionThe Tooth The Tooth You can t handle the ToothFeyd Rautha Harkonnen is especially interesting for the uestion of nature versus nurtureThe Bene Gesserit had intended him to mate with Paul who should have been Leto and Jessica s daughter and that offspring should have been the cumulation of ninety years of a breeding experiment to recreate the Kwisatz Haderach which had come about almost by accident during the Butlerian Jihad in the deep past to overthrow the AI overlordsHe was practically Paul s genetic twin or at least his potential to be the One who can be many places at once was on par with Paul But instead of fulfilling the kind of destiny that we get with Paul we see him grow up under the auspices of his Uncle the Baron becoming as cruel and devious as he was deadly He was the argument of nurture in the conversation of course and having so very little of it eventually cost him his lifeI often wonder about the directions that Dune could have taken all those little paths in time and circumstance that could have been What if Feyd had been brought to Arrakis earlier and overwhelmed with Spice the way that Paul had Sure he wouldn t have been able to convert the unconscious changes into conscious manipulation but he might have had enough glimpses of the future the way that the Fremen did to have given him the edge he would have needed to kill PaulAnd then there s a relatively minor character Hasimir Fenring the Emperor s personal assassin who was nearly the Kwisatz Haderach himself Unable to breed true he was still potent enough to be completely hidden to Paul s time sight in the same way that Paul was hidden from the Spacing Guild s weaker time sight His training as a skilled killer was also superior to Paul He was by all the hints and tricks in the tale Paul s perfect downfall It always gives me shivers to think about and it was only in a single instant of both recognition and pity from Paul that stayed Fenring from killing our hero It was just a moment of whimThe setup was gorgeous Paul s pity had it been missing at his moment of greatest triumph over the Emperor would have meant Paul s assured death I still wonder to this day what stayed Frank Herbert s hand from killing his most wonderful darling We knew the pressure of religion and politics was going to have its way upon all the oppressed peoples of Dune The return of a monstrous religious Jihad was going to happen one way or another sweeping across the galaxy and toppling the Empire regardless of Paul s frantic plans and desires Paul s own death would only mean a higher level of fanaticism and Frank Herbert s warning against unreasoning devotion would have been made even clearer with Paul s deathPerhaps it was pity that stayed his hand Who are we to say who lives and who diesIf you really think this review is overlong then I apologize but please understand that I could absolutely go on and on much longer than this It is a symptom of my devotion to this most brilliant of all talesAnd yes it still holds up very very well after twelve reads I am uite shocked and amazed

LOOK DAMN IT OMGMel I was so worried that I wouldn t understand a thing in this book I will admit there are some things that went over my head but for the most part I figured it out I remember a billion and 65 years ago I watched the movie and was like what the Basically all I remember is Sting and sandworms I would love to watch it again and see if I understand it after reading the book I m still not sure what all the spices were about on Arrakis I keep thinking it s like their farming like we would farm corn or tobacco etc I could be wrong and I didn t get the connection between the spice and the sandworms Is it like a drug to them I did read in the back of the book that is was like a drug when taken in small uantities and really addictive when taken in large uantities and that Muad Did felt his prophesies were because of the spice I liked Duke Leto and I hated that he was betrayed not long after they got to Arrakis There is always some twat out there causing trouble I really enjoyed Paul s character and his mother Jessica They seemed like really strong people and adapted very well in everything they were put through I didn t really pay too much attention to the other characters or I guess I should say I didn t have many thoughts about them With the exception of the ones that betrayed them I really enjoyed when Paul and Jessica had to travel to get away from the evil Baron Harkonnen before they were killed too I don t know why but I enjoyed their little journey I think they were both great in their roles when they were found by the Freman and showed they were a force to be reckoned with Now maybe I m getting this all wrong but I m trying to tell it through the way I saw it in my mind I don t understand how Paul s sister Alia was an abomination That one must have went over my head too It might have had something to do with the poison Jessica took to become the Reverend Mother I m not sure but I know some of my goodreads friends that read this will get me sorted out Other than the sandworms and traitorous people on Arrakis I was most freaked out by the thought of the water issue I would NOT was to live somewhere there was a water shortage And the part where they were talking about selling foot water I can t even Which basically means your stinky foot sweat Overall I really liked the book I enjoyed traipsing through this desert with Paul and his mother Only in book form though not in real life Since they are doing re makes of about a million different movies I wish they would re make this one because I think it would be really awesome I would like to see this land come to life in today s time I don t know if I m going to continue with the series as I have heard this is the best one and the others get confusing But I would like to see how Paul is as a ruler and what all happens to them or maybe not depending on what all happens If anyone can answer any of the things I was confused with that would be helpful Also I have seen some pictures on here of this really cool Dune book with art in it Does anyone have a link of where to get that book or is it still available Thank you MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List

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 uite 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 doesThe stuffy dialogue is inserted into even stuffier narrative until it feels like nothing is organic about Herbert s prose This is a terrible tragedy when you ve got a world that he put so much effort into building and it is an amazing feat of world building technically interplanetary building But unlike JRR Tolkien who he is so freuently compared to Herbert didn t make sure to include a great story in his world Instead he included a story that freuently illustrated how clunky an artificial world can be even if it s lovingly crafted I struggled to attach or find interest in anyone yet they re archetypes than human beings whose logic races past modern skepticism and whose dialogue is cloyingly artificial the way people cared for the Hobbits Dwarves and Rangers In his world building Tolkien at least saved himself from being dated by antedating himself and even with his illuminated prose wrought characteristics in just one protagonist than all of Dune s cast Even the political intrigue Herbert tries to fall back on was overdone in the Spy genre decades before he started this book All fans of the Genre genres should appreciate Herbert s massive contributions but they shouldn t pretend to enjoy the books if they don t and they should be wary of certain pitfalls typical of science fiction that survived into his landmark work
