Product description

Review

Unique among SF novels . . . I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings. - Arthur C. Clarke

An epic of political betrayal, ecological brinkmanship, and messianic deliverance... a universe of Machiavellian realpolitik, science fiction through the prism of the Cold War. There is little that is cute or cuddly: no furry-footed Hobbits, no teddy-bear-like Ewoks... This is terrain that is familiar to readers of George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire." Herbert's scheming, backstabbing villain, the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, would be perfectly at home among the Lannisters of Westeros. - The New Yorker

One of the landmarks of modern science fiction . . . an amazing feat of creation. - Analog

Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.

An astonishing science fiction phenomenon. - Washington Post

One of the monuments of modern science fiction. - Chicago Tribune

The time lives. It breathes, it speaks, and Herbert has smelt it in his nostrils. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. 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 what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ace 2019 Hardcover is Superb
Reviewed in Australia on 18 January 2020
This is a review of the excellent 2019 mass-market hardcover from Ace. Unfortunately it is glued not smyth-sewn, but I knew that before purchase after doing research, which took a long time comparing all extant hardcovers in print. It would be great if Amazon included binding details in the book profile. That said, the pages open nicely, so the perfect binding is not overly tight. I bought this edition for the beautiful design and in person it really is impressive. The illustrations and text typesetting are gorgeous, and the page margins are spot-on. By the way, I saw that the Folio Society DUNE has huge page margins...a turn-off for me.

Book Depository shipped the Ace DUNE to me without inside protection, but luckily it arrived undamaged. I am now looking forward to reading DUNE in 2020 for this first time.

This review is about the physical product only. The book looked like in used condition, not new. As seen in the pics it arrived with some wear. Disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality hardcover. A great addition to my DUNE collection
Reviewed in Australia on 18 November 2021
Very pleased with this Deluxe edition. The teal/green on the edge of the pages, the amazing cover art and how when it opens up it has even more amazing artwork inside. Just speechless and very glad I made this purchase. A worthy addition to my DUNE collection of books and art.
