Book Review: Dune by Frank Herbert

“It is impossible to live in the past, difficult to live in the present and a waste to live in the future.”

Originally released in 1965, Dune by Frank Herbert is set in the inhospitable desert world Arrakis where melange, or ‘spice’, is the most valuable element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person’s life-span to making interstellar travel possible. Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe.

When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis from the noble House Harkonnen to House Atreides, the Harkonnens fight back, murdering Duke Leto Atreides. Paul, his son, and Lady Jessica, his concubine, flee into the desert. On the point of death, they are rescued by a band for Fremen, the native people of Arrakis, who control Arrakis’ second great resource: the giant worms that burrow beneath the burning desert sands. In order to avenge his father and retake Arrakis from the Harkonnens, Paul must earn the trust of the Fremen and lead a tiny army against the innumerable forces aligned against them. And his journey will change the universe.
