Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for....When House Atreides is betrayed, the destruction of Paul’s family will set the boy on a journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined. And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib, he will bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream.

I'm a big science-fiction fan. I love Dune. That's not a nonfiction narrative, of course, but it would be cool if it was!

Награды: премия «Хьюго» в категории «Лучший роман» (1966), премия «Небьюла» в категории «Лучший роман» (1965), премия SFinks в категории «Книга года» (2008). Действие происходит в далёком будущем, где общественная жизнь и культура вращаются вокруг «пряности», за добычу и использование этого особого вещества идёт постоянная борьба. На первый взгляд может показаться, что это ещё одна история борьбы добра и зла, благородства и корыстных интересов. Однако книга полифоничнее. Герберту удалось создать своеобразную хронику далёкого будущего, которая исследует вопросы политики, религии, экологии и технологии, по праву считаясь наиболее яркой и оригинальной за всю историю мировой фантастики.

The book takes a long time a long time to really take speed in my opinion. But what it does is an amazing journey that I love taking part of.
