I love this book. I couldn't finish it the first time, because I didn't realize what I was getting into when I first read it. After picking it up a second time I couldn't put it down. I was lost in the world that Frank Herbert was creating. The thing I love most about this book is how unique the setting is. I have heard this book compared to the Lord of the Rings in terms of how influential it is in its respective genre, but unlike LotR Dune has not been copied to death so it feels fresh. All-in-all, Dune is an amazing story and I'm sure any sci-fi fan willing enough to face this story will appreciate its complexity and uniqueness.
