Free Book Friday – Dune

Dune by Frank Herbert


Opposing forces struggle for control of the universe when the arch-enemy of the cosmic emperor is banished to a barren world where savages fight for water. β€” Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad’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 a grand epic in science fiction.

  2. Joanne Kasik says:

    If I win this one, it’ll be one of only a handful of sci-fi genre books that I own… and once I read it, only the 2nd or 3rd that I’ve read πŸ™‚ I know it’s a classic and have always meant to read it though.

  3. Lisa DeSherlia says:

    The above book, featured on this blog, is not my first choice. Do we have a choice? I’m wishing for the volume of writings by Frederick Douglass.

    The book is 100 times better than either the movie or tv adaptation. I have literally read my copy to pieces. Hoping to win so I don’t have to keep grabbing the fallen-out pages from the cat!

    Wow. Thanks for bringing back Free Book Friday. Dune is a classic that I have always meant to read. I even saw it featured on the Great American Read, a few summers ago. Thanks for this opportunity!
