I finished reading the first of the Dune Chronicle books, and can definitely say I’m a fan. Dune is as epic as a book can be. Not in weightiness like “The Lord of the Rings” but in it’s scope as an enormous all encompassing story on a grand scale that plays itself out over a great many books.
Frank Herbert’s style is easy to read and not overly elaborate which make what has the potential to be extremely confusing subject matter, very accessible and tells an interesting tale.
I remember playing the video game when I was a kid, and not understanding the context behind any of it, now it all makes sense. I hear they’re making a movie of it, to be directed by Peter Berg. I look forward to it.
