Sometimes when im really in the mood to be mad i like to read the one star reviews of the this book. and its just blows my mind. people are talking about how boring it is, and how lord of the rings is so much better. Im sorry people but DUNE is one of the best books ever, i first read this book at 16 (im 27 now) and this book will stick with me till i die. Im sorry Frodo, but Paul is Muad'Dib, all you did was throw a ring into a volcano, he took over a galaxy. I think a lot of americans hate this book because its has middle eastern themes, and they have watched too much fox news and think the Fremen are terrorists. But seriously i really wish everyone would read this book it totally stands the test of time. Maybe its just me but Paul and Chani's story is one of the saddest and most beautiful since Romeo and Juliette. My library consists of over 200 paper books and i have probably another 100 digital, and DUNE will always be at the top of my list. Its epic its sad, its emotional, its every thing you want in a book that makes your brain work and your heart break.
Ive read Lord of the Rings, a few times,(ive only read the first book once beacuse it has f***ing singing in it what is it Marry F***ing Poppins) i respect the he started the fantasy genre but it is the most simplistic writing, you want good deep fantasy writing read Steven Erikson. Dune has some of the most deep writing and interesting characters of all time and it sounds like its up to date, not like Lord of the Rings that you can tell was written like 6o years ago.
Im actually not trying to rip on the Rings but when people try to say they are way better it just makes my blood boil, i hate that people try to compare them, they are so completely different its not even funny.
