As soon as I saw the new Deluxe edition of Dune I knew it had to be mine.

Sprayed edges, killer cover, and look at those end pages! 😍

There's also a huge picture on the back of the cover slip, but when it's all spread out, it's so big I can't take a proper picture atm. Gonna try later when I'm at home.

Such a gorgeous edition! ❤️

Schlinkles We got it in at the store I manage and it is taking all my strength not to buy it. It is so beautiful! 1w
Jari-chan What a beauty! I'm so jealous 😍 1w
GrilledCheeseSamurai @Schlinkles I originally saw it on Wednesday and knew it had to be mine. It's a damn expensive book though so I left it behind (for the time being). Haven't stopped thinking about it since so I went back today before work and picked it up. I mean...3 days restraint is good, right? 😅 1w

I read this many, many years ago and recently decided to listen to the audio book. The world building is fantastic. It was a long book that I did enjoy overall but there were patches of awesome. There were scenes/events that I just loved. I was excited to read about a new movie version next year with Josh Brolin and Jason Momoa 😊 Great sci-fi ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since I‘m reading this book I figured I‘d share that I read 15-20 pages a day... I know that‘s not much, but I was wondering how many pages a day do you read-ish and what book or just the ish. Anyone willing to reply?

Madelpadel I‘m reading this now! For this particular book I feel I can‘t fully understand if I just plow through, so I‘ve been reading a bout 20 pages a night and I still feel like I may need to give myself more time to digest! I‘m enjoying it so far, though. 3w

Absolutely loved this damn book.
If you want some really good world building, and a literary universe within a single book that has wheels within wheels, give Dune a shot.
It's not known as one of the best sci-fi book ever written for nothing.
I checked it out for myself and absolutely adore it.
Did find it a bit hard to get into at first, as it throws a lot at you, but stick with it and the payoff is worth it.

This is an AWESOME book so far! I‘m only 157 pages in and I have a lot to go. Grab it up before the movie comes out in Dec of 2020. There is already one out from 84 but I‘m doing my best to avoid it until I‘m done. By god I will finish a book before it becomes a movie.

PetrozavaRR Little late to see this post but i managed to finish recently 4 books of the Dune saga.....the first one was absolutely breathtaking and i was mind blown!Unfortunately with every subsequent book it became more repetitive and hard to read(for me that is) and i really hope it's not the same for you! Enjoy the amazing journey!(and love the cover!)🤗👌 2w

I finished the first volume from "Dune". The series is one of my favorite.

I love "Dune" not because of its political, religious and other themes, but because of the way the author describes the planet. When I read it, I can feel the sand under my feet and the Sun in my face. The adventure. The wilderness. The silence.

I hate Jessica. She complains all the time. And she controls his son. And I hate that the author made Chani a baby factory.

RaimeyGallant Sounds really interesting. 2mo

Book #55: Dune is often cataloged as one of the greatest science fiction stories ever told and the precursor to all science fiction that has come since. It is also frequently listed as the first book within the bestselling science fiction series of all time. These are all titles that the book has rightfully earned. Dune contains parallels in religion...

Just finished this epic of science-fiction and look forward to the new movie version. Thematically, I can see why it is being re-made, as there are a lot of themes related to nature and conservation which ought to have a broad appeal. It also has a Game of Thrones vibe which is definitely going to land well with viewers!

Absolutely love the cover art of this version. I bought it while my mom was in the hospital in and out of ICU for 100 days. It was one of my dad‘s favorite but as a child, I always was intimidated by it. Now that I‘ve finished it, I wish I would‘ve read it much sooner. But it‘s nice to have little moments to discover someone after they‘re gone. And I needed some of his wisdom to help me get through the last few months. This book gave that to me.

Liatrek This is book is amazing it‘s on my to read again list 😊 I‘m really hoping the new movie will do a better job with the source material. 4mo

Just barely a pick- I liked it mostly because of the intriguing world Herbert created. Political intrigue mixes with religious mysticism in unexpected ways, and it's interesting to see heroes with darker sides: you question their motives in the same way you would with politicians. The characters held me back from liking it more- the dialogue and their inner thoughts were a little stilted. But what a world to explore- worth reading just for that.

Ddzmini This is an epic story with hidden meanings. it was a 1980 hit when the movie came out. I loved it then and now 📖😋 4mo
Billypar @Ddzmini I can see why it became such a hit- Herbert was a true visionary. 4mo
jveezer Never seen that cover. Very Cool. I liked the first book when I read it in the ‘70s but then lost interest a few books into the series.... 4mo
Billypar @jveezer I like the cover- the title letters and Paul's distant figure shine like they're catching the desert sun. And the book dimensions are interesting- taller and thinner than normal. 4mo

This is a little random, but do you remember that Fatboy Slim song, 'Weapon of Choice' with the video that has Christopher Walken doing an elaborate solo dance routine in a #grandhotel ? Remember that lyric, 'Walk without rhythm, and you won't attract the worm....'? I'm reading Dune now and I came to this part where the characters are walking without rhythm so as not to attract giant desert worms. Coincidence, or was Fatboy Slim a Dune fan?

batsy Very cool! I'm with @LeahBergen and going with definitely a fan because I like that idea 😁 Also, I *think* I should read Dune... 🦠😬😩 4mo
rretzler I‘m guessing the entire song is a Dune reference. Isn‘t the Weapon of Choice in the song the voice? Bene Gesserit voice, maybe? 4mo
tournevis Dune ref, not even a question, the whole song is. @rretzler got it. 4mo
BarbaraBB Great discovery! 4mo

Billypar @DivineDiana @LeahBergen @batsy @rretzler @tournevis @BarbaraBB @readordierachel Google and Wikipedia seem to agree- looks like a Dune reference. I love this- I need to check out some lists of literary references in pop music- Alice in Wonderland, Lolita, and 1984 come to mind, but I'm sure there's a ton.. 4mo
Billypar @rretzler @tournevis I'm going to have to take another look at the lyrics after I finish it- I'm intrigued that the entire song is about the novel! 4mo
rretzler @Billypar The Cure‘s Killing an Arab - Robert Smith wrote the song about 4mo
rretzler @Billypar A more obvious one - The Police‘s Don‘t Stand So Close to Me references 4mo
Billypar @batsy If the length is a deterrent, I put it on a two week schedule to finish and it's been surprisingly easy to stick to- should finish by Thursday if I meet the remaining targets 🤞 And I'm liking it, so that helps! 4mo
Billypar @readordierachel Ha- agreed: I remember watching it over and over in college. I just read that Spike Jonze directed it, which I didn't know, but it makes sense- I'm a big fan of his work. 4mo
Billypar @rretzler Yeah that's the song for Lolita that came to mind- didn't realize about the Cure song though! That's one I still need to read at some point.. 4mo
Liz_M Thank you! I had no idea C. Walken could get down like that. Day Made. 4mo
BarbaraBB @rretzler Interesting!! I didn‘t know about The Cure and The Police! 4mo

Billypar @Liz_M Glad to bring it to your attention! It's impossible to watch it and not feel a little happier afterwards. 4mo
Billypar @BarbaraBB @rretzler I binged a little on internet lists of songs. I never knew Devo's 'Whip It' was inspired by Gravity's Rainbow. And then there are those I feel like I should have guessed like Sympathy for the Devil being inspired by Master & Margarita. 4mo
Centique That Walken dance is the BEST. Now I need to go watch it again. Thank you for reminding me of this! 😍 4mo
tournevis @rretzler @billypar Not only that, but the single Killing an Arab was banned in Canada for a while until their lawyers prevailed upon authorities that the song was a riff on a real book. 4mo
Billypar @Centique Glad to! It's a good one to watch again when you haven't seen in some time. 4mo
Billypar @tournevis Oh wow- what a misunderstanding! That was in their early days too, so they hadn't had much time to establish their band personality. 4mo
tournevis @Billypar Something like 1979-1981 if my idled brain remembers correctly. Also, Canadian Customs Agency had a hair trigger back then. 4mo

rretzler A great book and a good series - that is until I bailed on book 4. I do plan to go back and reread and finish it off one day. 4mo
Billypar @rretzler I didn't even realize it was a series until I started reading it. Such an impressive achievement to imagine a world in this level of depth- seems like much more than the plot developments. 4mo
rretzler That‘s the beauty of it, I think. The entire society and political intrigues that Herbert created is mind-blowing and wonderful. And his son has continued the series. I‘ve read several of those and they are good too (better than book 4 of the series.) I believe Herbert was influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ Mars series and Isaac Asimov‘s Foundation series, which are also very good, if perhaps a little dated. 4mo
Suet624 Such a good book. I read it soon after it came out - hundreds of years ago! - and I still have scenes popping up in my mind from it. It‘s on my list to read again. 4mo
Billypar @rretzler A woman on the subway today saw me reading Dune, and she was telling me how it was a favorite and changed her life. She also really liked Children of Dune, but said God Emperor was tough to get through, but the end was good. Interesting about the influences- thanks for those! 4mo
Billypar @Suet624 That's pretty neat to be an original fan of something that would become a classic. I'm a little disappointed that I'm about 5 years too old to have had Harry Potter in my childhood when the first book came out. With this one, I'm still early, but enjoying it so far! 4mo

First up is a small #shelfie of my physical #TBR books. I‘m really working hard to get this stack down to a maximum of ten at a time (currently a couple dozen or so), because it really stresses me out to have books around that I haven‘t read.

My TBR on Goodreads is another matter entirely...
