Dune
Dune | Frank Herbert
"Unique...I know nothing comparable to it except Lord of the Rings."--Arthur C. ClarkeHere is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family--and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. Frank Herbert's death in 1986 was a tragic loss, yet the astounding legacy of his visionary fiction will live forever.

My reading taste has changed so much this year. I never imagined I would dive into the substantial sci-fi genre. It never caught my interest until I picked up Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. And now there are several sci-fi titles that have caught my interest. And I‘m always looking for more. So if you have any recommendations drop them in the comments.

Sci-fi I want to try: https://wildwoodreads.com/2021/11/22/sci-fi-books-that-i-want-to-try/

RaeLovesToRead I've been in a couple of sci fi book clubs... I would recommend The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet for something light, The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury is also wonderful and if you're really getting into the genre The Complete Robot by Isaac Asimov is stunning. 4d
Dragon Ancillary Justice is the first book in a trilogy , incredible world building 4d
wanderinglynn I second @RaeLovesToRead on Long Way. Becky Chambers is awesome. Also for fun sci-fi, I recommend John Scalzi‘s Redshirts and Agent to the Stars. He also has a series that starts with Old Man‘s War that is awesome. 4d

wanderinglynn And HHGTTG is one of my all time fave books! 🙌🏻👍🏻 4d
RaeLovesToRead @wanderinglynn I just googled HHGTTG 😂🤦‍♀️ 4d
Vansa Octavia Butler's Kindred and Parable of the Sower, Parable of the talents are absolutely excellent.Sinopticon, a collection of Chinese short stories is lovely and unique. 3d

Holy crap, THIS is a classic of the genre?? The concept was fine, sure, but the pacing was garbage and the characterization was...interesting. If it weren't for Jessica and eventually Alia, I wouldn't have made it through. #scifi #whoaddedthistothecanonijustwannatalk

BarbaraTheBibliophage Love the hashtag! Because I absolutely struggled my way through this book. It‘s one of my husband‘s favorites, and I 💯 questioned him on that. Turns out he read it when he was in his twenties. That‘s about the mindset … and you‘re right, Herbert‘s writing needed a vicious editor. Did you know it was first sold in auto parts stores? The only people who would put it on the shelf. Explains a lot … 5d
kissmehardy @BarbaraTheBibliophage I'm STILL in my twenties and I couldn't handle it! It feels very amateur and underdeveloped. 5d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @kissmehardy Well … I didn‘t mean to insult people in their 20s. 🤪 Just been around the mindset of men in their 20s a lot and this reminded me of how they often think. I agree with your assessment of the book—amateurish for sure. 5d
kissmehardy @BarbaraTheBibliophage I totally see what you meant! 5d

I mean I learned a lot about vermiposting and a lot about how not to write woman characters. I liked the sandy bits, the politicking was interesting, some of the technology was great, but this ol book's got a loooot of iffy content I tell you hwhut

Herbert has some mommy issues and he definitely loves them white saviours but what can I say there's a lot of sand and sometimes it's spicy (don't read beyond this book in the series)

Guess who‘s off work with a sinus infection 😰 I‘m so busy at the moment and I love this time of year, but it seems like my body would rather have me lie in a heap instead.

I‘m trying to make progress on Dune but I‘m finding the writing style very difficult. It‘s not so much that it‘s complicated, it‘s just so repetitive and I feel like I‘m getting told every single thing three or four times. Maybe I‘ll take a break and read a romance instead

Amiable I gave up on “Dune” about 100 pages in. Just couldn‘t do it. 2w
Emilymdxn @Amiable I really like the worldbuilding and the plot I just wish he could be less repetitive 😬 im now reading this tagged Christmas romance book which is certainly easier when your sinuses hate you! 2w
HollyBolly I saw the new movie last night and it inspired me to try the book. Sometimes I think it's easier to follow a book if I see the movie first. Especially a clunker like Dune. 2w

I liked the story but the book took me forever to read. A full month! I understand why so many love it, but I doubt I‘ll ever read it again. I just don‘t love SciFi as much as some people.

THAT BEING SAID: the 2021 movie is FANTASTIC, a great adaptation. We saw it in IMAX and my entire family loved it. We‘re going to watch it again and we‘re already excited for the next installment which hasn‘t even been filmed yet. Movie better than the book!!

My husband really loves Dune. I had watched the older movie a long time ago, and the new movie we watched in theatres and on HBO (I feel like he has watched it even more than the 2x with me). Anyway, he loves this book too. As we are moving we can't find the physical copy but... I needed a new #AudioCommute book. This Audible Production is really good so far!

🎥 I haven't read the books, so I believe I missed a lot, but nevertheless the new film adaptation of the book is incredible with plenty of fights, explosions and hardware as well as stillness. The movie ends before everything wraps, so I'll be waiting for the sequel 🎬

IuliaC Me too, I'm waiting for the sequel 👍 The book has been in my bookcase since before I was born, but it never caught my interest. Now after seeing the movie, I start to understand the hype about it 😃 4w

According to Goodreads I read Dune over 4 years ago. I have been eagerly anticipating the movie adaptation since I first heard about it. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I love Denis Villeneuve's movies. His run of 4 consecutive films (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) in almost as many years is nearly unparalleled today. Each one of these is a gem in it's own way. As is Dune. Is Dune the best movie I've seen this year?

vivastory Too soon to say. So far it is a toss up between: The Green Knight (a visionary adaptation with great casting & fantastical elements), Dune (a visionary adaptation of a sci-fi novel with great casting & contemporary parallels about the dangers of colonialism) & Midnight Mass (a horror story that is also just as much about addiction & death & yes has a great cast.) I realize that including MM is cheating a bit since it's a series, but *shrugs* 4w
Suet624 I'm so glad you went to see it. I so appreciate Villeneuve spending the time to make the version of Dune that I wanted to see.
4w
vivastory @Suet624 It really exceeded my expectations, which is rare whenever you have high expectations. It really was phenomenal. The casting, the sound design, the special fx, the story. I plan on watching it again on HBO before it leaves which I hardly ever do. I loved how it felt otherworldly but I would often forget it was a sci-fi story (when they first land on Arrakis & someone begins playing bagpipes). Touches like that really made it special. 4w

Suet624 It was the fastest 2.5 hours! I agree that I would forget the label sci-fi. I actually have trouble explaining the movie or story because for some reason I can‘t compare it to anything else. I don‘t watch or read sci-fi and yet I‘m in love with Dune. I‘m actually going back to watch it again tomorrow at the theatre to see the stuff I missed the first time. (edited) 4w
UnidragonFrag I'm waiting for this to come out on streaming I have. Very much looking forward to it. Glad it seems to be getting positive reviews to far! 4w
vivastory @Suet624 I enjoy sci-fi, but out of all of the genres that I read it's without a doubt the one that I read the least often. 4w

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I‘ve never read the book, but enjoyed the movie yesterday with my husband and his mom. They‘re both obsessed with the book, to the point that they want to get the tattoos of the monologue starting with “Fear is the mind killer” and loved the movie. 4w
Suet624 Scott, I've seen a zillion trailers for Dune, but never this one. Until today. Have you seen it? A brilliant music selection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prcrtb_sxL0 4w
vivastory @Suet624 I haven't, but that's perfect! Thanks for the link. This reminds me a couple of weeks ago when I was driving to work & listening to member supported radio station & they were playing the best Bond theme songs. One that they played was composed by Radiohead, but ended up not being used in the movie. 4w
Suet624 Apparently Villeneuve used a Radiohead song in another movie of his.

I officially completed the Week 1 #Screamathon Scare Pair challenge! I read Dune earlier this month and watched the new movie Saturday night.

🪱 I loved the book because it was action packed, combined with being an extraordinary coming of age story, I was worried about the length, but it flew by.

🎬 I also loved the movie. It stayed pretty close to the book.

🧙🏻 Yes, it‘s an October story. There are witches and monsters!

We watched the new movie last night & I have to say the cinematography was amazing. It‘s a gorgeous film & worth watching for that reason alone. Very cool, if occasionally discordant, soundtrack as well. BUT, it‘s only Part 1 & I don‘t remember what happens next—I read the book ages & ages ago—so I‘m going to start a reread this weekend. (Reading my movie tie-in edition from the last time around of course.) I need to know what happens next!

I know this is considered a science fiction classic, and the movie looks AMAZING…But honestly, this book was not for me. Incredibly long and rambling, Dune has interesting themes but falls short of making me feel invested in its characters. There‘s awkward time jumps, self indulgent monologues, and two dimensional villains with one track minds. Could this be a rare instance where the movie is actually better than the book?

My goal was 30 books this year and ladies and gentlemen you are looking at number 30. I had always resisted this because the original movie adaptation came out around the time of Return of the Jedi and 6 year old matt would have none of it since the commercials said it was better.

Great story but I didn‘t love the writing. The first 130 pages were really slow and lacked world building IMO. I would have liked the appendixes at the end to have been part of the story at the beginning. I did really like how the reader read the thoughts of the characters throughout as the thoughts were in italics, sometimes quite funny! I can see why this is in the top lists for sci-fi books and I‘m glad I finally read it!
