DEFINITELY WORTH A READ

Dune - Frank Herbert

 

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration".

 

What can I say about Dune that hasn't been said before?

Well, I read it in Portuguese and I own a brand new edition. It's funny that I usually know what to say about a book I didn't like, and I can't find the right words to say about those I really like. So... I really love this book :P 


I highly recommend for science fiction and fantasy fans!


I think this part of the "To Tame a Land" a Iron Maiden’s song is a good synopsis:

 


He is the king of all the land
In the Kingdom of the sands
Of a time tomorrow
He rules the sandworms and the Fremen
In a land amongst the stars
Of an age tomorrow
He is destined to be a King
He rules over every thing
In the land called planet Dune
Body water is your life
And without it you would die
In the desert the planet Dune

Without a stillsuit you would fry
On the sands so hot and dry
In a world called Arakis
It is a land that's rich in spice
The sandriders and the ‘mice'
That they call the ‘Muad'Dib'
He is the Kwizatz Haderach
He is born of Caladan
And will take the Gorn Jabbar
He has the power to foresee
Or to look into the past
He's the ruler of the stars
