9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Steven W. Williams on Oct. 14 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I will surely burn but I have to say it; "DUNE" stands head and shoulders above LOTR. LOTR is good but it is predictable. Dune has much more detailed and it's scope wider. Certainly, "Dune" is the harder read but much more worthwhile. This book digs much deeper into the nature of humanity, its goals, its weaknesses, strengths, and the nature of religions.

Comparing the books is, however, like comparing apples to oranges. Yes, they are both fruits, both are round-ish, both are tasty, and both grow on trees but they are very different. One book is about a quest and the battle between good and evil. The other is about the battle between humans who are both good and evil at the same time. It is a book about "wheels within wheels" that exist in each of our natures and in our society. Dune is amazing and worthy of reading twice or three times to see the layers.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the greatest science fiction epics ever written. This book has it all: mind-expanding drugs, human computers, political intrigue, interstellar economics, and big-... worms. The reader should take from this book a sense of grandness of scale. The messianic fervor of the Fremen, the calculated patience of the Bene Gesserit eugenics program, the ecological ambition of Liet Kynes, and the universal-historical vision of the Quisatz Haderach, all ought to awaken us to the necessity and danger of human activity on the universal-historical timescale. That is the scale on which we all operate, whether we know it or not. Some of the themes in this book, which was written in the mid-1960's, foreshadow the adolescent field of chaos theory. In particular, the notion that seemingly insignificant local events can have calamitous effects on future history is analogous to the butterfly effect. Also, Herbert's conception of prophecy as a probability tree branching infinitely through time enjoys some endorsement from quantum physics.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot but for me it fell short of the `masterpiece' hype that surrounds it. There is drama, tension and mystery. But the characters were not fully created. The main character, Paul Atreides, is treated in heroic terms, and doesn't seem completely real to me. But perhaps I was asking too much. It is well worth reading, just as a classic of the genre.

I liked the movie, but this book just makes everything so much better!

Frank Herbert puts science and politics into this scifi classic, and it's a joy to read.

Too bad the sequels got boring.

This book is the Lord of the Rings but for Sci-Fi fans. The deeply reach world and character struggles will keep any reader entertained.

For everyone interested in science fiction, this book is a must. Cleverly written, keeps you turning page after page in order to discover more about the complex political/religious scene developing.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Despite the slow buildup and a moderately difficult vocabulary at times, Dune stands on a very high pedestal, towering above its sci-fi counterparts. This is a work of fiction that will challenge the mind and inagination, but also one that is extremely rewarding, and will ultimately leave you wanting more.

Any fan of science-fiction should without a doubt delve into Frank Herbert's undisputed creative genius.

10/10
