    There s a characteristically witty essay by Borges about a man who rewrites Don Quixote, many centuries after Cervantes He publishes a novel with the same title, containing the same words in the same order But, as Borges shows you, the different cultural context means it s a completely new book What was once trite and commonplace is now daring and new, and vice versa It just happens to look like Cervantes s masterpiece.Similarly, imagine the man who was brave or stupid enough to rewrite Dune There s a characteristically witty essay by Borges about a man who rewrites Do...

    No one should argue the importance Dune It laid the foundations for a great deal of the themes and constructs in modern science fiction Frank Herbert was as important to the genre as Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke Unfortunately, just like them, he s quite dated, and his books can be a labor to read One thing he maintained from old science fiction was prim and scientific dialogue that no one would ever actually speak I ve known many scientists, and they don t talk like this You re not going No one should argue the importance Dune It laid the foundations for a great deal of the themes and constructs in modern science fiction Frank Herbert was as important to the genre as Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke Unfortunately, just like them, he s quite dated, and his books can be a labor to read One thing he maintained from old science fiction was prim and scientific dialogue that no one would ever actually speak I ve known many scientists, and they don t talk like this You re not going to convince m...

    Dune.No other single syllable means as much to the science fiction genre, a single word that conjures images of sandworms, spice wars, great battles between rival dynastic families and a massively detailed and intricately crafted universe No wonder this is widely regarded as not just a Science Fiction masterpiece, but a literary achievement as well Like a study of Shakespeare, the reader finds that this is an archetype upon which many influences and imitators have based their works The Dune.No other single syllable means as much to the science fiction genre, a single word that conjures images of sandworms, spice wars, great battles between rival dynastic families and a massively detailed and intricately crafted universe No wonder this is widely regarded as not just a Science Fiction masterpiece, but a literary achievement as well Like a study of Shakespeare, the...

    I m sort of tempted to try this again I don t think it ll be worth the hassle though I could never give Dune five stars because I really struggled to get into the novel in the beginning It has taken me almost two months to read This, for me, is a very long time to spend on a book It took me so long to read because I found the writing style incredibly frustrating I had to read whole chapters again so I could get the gist of the plot This wasso in the be...

    People often forget that this series is what innovated our modern concept of science fiction up until Neuromancer and The Martix, at least Dune took the Space Opera and asked if it might bethan spandex, dildo shaped rockets, and scantily clad green women Herbert created a vast and complex system of ancient spatial politics and peoples, then set them at one another s throats over land, money, and drugs.Dune is often said to relate to Sci Fi in the same way that Tolkien relates to People often forget that this series is what innovated our modern concept of science fiction up until Neuromancer and The Martix, at least Dune took the Space Opera and asked if it might bethan spandex, dildo shaped rockets, and scantily clad green women Herbert created a vast and complex system of ancient spatial politics and peoples, then set them at one another s throats over land, money, and drugs.Dune is often said to relate to Sci Fi in the same way that Tolkien relates to Fantasy I d say that, as far as paradigm shift, this is widely true Both entered genres generally filled with the odd, ...

    I blame the movie.I was an avid but novice fantasy and sci fi reader in 1984 when David Lynch s Dune rolled out as a big budget adaptation of the 1965 classic book It was an artistic and box office failure with Roger Ebert calling it a real mess, an incomprehensible, ugly, unstructured, pointless excursion Numerous references were made to its excessive length, particularly a tv edition that was over 3 hours long I never did pick up the classic sci fi book, assuming the commentary heard I blame the movie.I was an avid but novice fantasy and sci fi reader in 1984 when David Lynch s Dune rolled out as a big budget adaptation of the 1965 classic book It was an artistic and box office failure with Roger Ebert calling it a real mess, an incomprehensible, ugly, unstructured, pointless excursion Numerous references were made to its excessive length, particularly a tv edition that was over 3 hours long I never did pick up the classic sci fi book, assuming the commentary heard abo...
