    About "Frank Herbert"

      • Frank Herbert

        Frank Herbert was a critically acclaimed and commercially successful American science fiction author.He is best known for the novel Dune and its five sequels The Dune saga, set in the distant future and taking place over millennia, dealt with themes such as human survival and evolution, ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics, and power, and is widely considered to be among the classics in the field of science fiction.He was the father of fellow author Brian Herbert.


    1. Frank Herbert's Dune was in part inspired by his experience working in a research centre in California studying desertification. The realisation of the interrelationship of environment, people and culture coming out of that experience is a key feature of the series. At the centre of the first novel is a desert planet, Arrakis, and the secret desire of its inhabitants to transform it's ecology. It is a great science-fiction novel about systems of power and the role of ecology, although admittedly [...]

    2. A lot of people only read the first book, including people who seldom read sci-fi and people who only read just this one sci-fi book. The other two books are definitely worthwhile, especially the third volume (I have not read anything subsequent to the third book). If you are interested these are my reviews:1. Dune2. Dune Messiah3. Children of Dune

    3. OK - let's cut through the BS.This is - quite simply - the most magnificent Sci-Fi epic ever written. The scope of Asimov's Foundation, the attention to detail and context of Tolkien's LotR, coupled with an unmatched visionary socio-ecological messianic narrative that is scarily relevant today.Anyone who likes Sci-Fi and who hasn't read this needs to get a copy. And read it. Now.

    4. The 'Lord Of The Rings' of science fiction, I started reading my aunt's battered old copies while stuck in America in the spring and found it absolutely wonderful. Intensely gripping, I enjoyed it so much I went out and bought my own copy of the trilogy. Incredibly dense and rich with detail, these books are totally unputdownable, and the intrigue will keep you turning pages for hours. Loved them so much I named one of my cuddly toys Gurney Halleck :)

    5. I don't know why I was so determined to finish this trilogy - but I just had to know how it was going to end. If the trilogy was like the last 50 pages of the last book, fast-paced, full of action and startling twists and turns, I would have loved it. Sadly, most of the 3 books are focused on political debate, prophecies of the future, and spice-beer, spice-coffee, spice-clothes, spice everything.The books felt a lot like Game of Thrones to me, but more inter-galactic and scheming rather than th [...]

    6. The Dune series by Frank, not the son, form one of the pillars of my dreams over the decades since I read the first book. Somehow the imagery plays out in my mind far better than the attempts made by Hollywood.Unfortunately, I donated my original set, with the original covers, when I moved a few years ago - the new books don't smell the same and don't have the familiar paper feel I grew accustomed to while reading them during finals week year after year.The blend of science-aversion, exploitatio [...]

    7. The mythos the late Mr Herbert Has bequeathed to us either enraptures or bores the reader. I am of the former, this is mature, intellectual, dramatic science fiction that still resonates as a warning about power and its dangers. I seem to read rhis every few years and never tire, nor fail to gain a new insight. Simply put, glorious.

    8. Dune is a masterful piece of writing, with a beautifully realised world - the politics, Arrakis itself, the people - all well thought out and plausible. I think what Herbert does well, is although the world and the people are alien, the reader can relate to them. I find too many sci-fi authors are so interested in creating exotic worlds and peoples that they forgo characters readers can relate to and as result, the stories miss that emotional hook. In my opinion, Dune is the strongest of the boo [...]

    9. This remains, for the time being, my favourite series. The story is intricate and well developed and perfectly balanced so that you do not lose sight of the other points of view in the book while focusing on a specific character's story. I found this book to be the well of clear water that I needed so badly in a rather dry existence. I remember having read the trilogy as well as the other books in under 2 weeks time, therefore this represents a personal epiphany and these books shall forever be [...]

    10. A must read, not only by scifi fans, but also for its literature, its philosophy, - it's an ageless book for everyone.

    11. Легенда! Затянуло с первой страницы, и до последней. Слушал аудиокнигу в машине, радовался пробкам, что можно подольше послушать:)

    12. Nel complesso un tomo affascinante, sorprendente alla luce degli anni trascorsi dalla scrittura di questi libri.Dune, il primo libro, è potente. Straripante, innovativo, precursore. Ci mostra la fantascienza fantasy che è poi entrata di forza nell'immaginario collettivo con Star Wars.Un impero galattico di stampo feudale, un pianeta rigidissimo popolato dai Fremen (che decenni dopo ispireranno non poco Robert Jordan), una setta di donne dotate di poteri (ancora, Robert Jordan ma anche Goodkind [...]

    13. My friend warned me: it goes down after the first book. But I couldnt help myself and ordered this trilogy the day after finishing Dune. I was not interested as much in the plot, which can dawdle on forever like so many once-great sci-fi series, but rather in how Frank Herbert continued exploring the big ideas of Dune: the Middle East/Dune parallels, Church-State, climate change, the competing myth creations of Paul vs the BGBook II (Dune Messiah) is the fall of Paul and Book III (Children of Du [...]

    14. This is definitely one of those sets-of-books that they should remake the films for! Frank Herbert injects so much detail into a complex emotional story line you can't help but be sucked in by it all. The ending is sort of sad, but then I haven't read the additional #4 or above yet! I'm a purist

    15. Dune is a planet of limits and possibilities. It is a place waiting for the people bred for its promise.But it goes wrong. Or right. It depends on your perspective. Perspective, like the sands of Dune change with the wind.Dune is a treatise on power, ecology and hubris. It is one of the books any science fiction fan should read at least once.

    16. A brilliant examination of human politicks and potential. Also an exploration of the dichotomy of destiny and free will as Paul struggles to stem the inevitable tide of events that will rip human society apart. One of the best books ever written.

    17. First book (loosely based on story of Mohammed) is second best SF ever written. Books two and three, inevitably, fall off.

    18. These were really fun. As soon as I finished one I grabbed the next. I was sorry to see them end. Unlike most incredibly detailed books it didn't take me long to "get into" the story.

    19. Amazing exploration of society and the norms that have been established. Heavy read in the lane of Asimov foundation or Butler in the wildseed series.I'd say one of the greatest books ever written.

    20. So so so often (99%) any on screen adaptation grievously disappoints the book! Now I was introduced to Dune first by way of the Miniseries in the early 2000's and I loved it and proceeded to watch Children of Dune (miniseries) and the 1984 movie! After digesting all of these I finally brought the books, and well- the screen adaptations are pale in comparison to the sheer vastness of the detail and soul that Mr Herbert instills into these Epics! Yes I call them Epics, with few equals! His imagina [...]

    21. The book is ultimately unsatisfying to me as it sets up a lot of future without a happily ever after for the characters I cared about. I enjoyed it, though, and it has a lot of drama and tension, as well as neat twists and surprises.

    22. It's been eons since I read "The Great Dune Trilogy", but I remember is as the most enthralling science fiction series I have ever read. No other series (or, indeed, science fiction in general) has ever captivated me like "Dune" did.

    23. I've given the books in this collected volume separate ratings, from when I first read them separately.Dune: 5Dune Messiah: 4Children of Dune: 3I should revisit this series at some point to see if I want to change those ratings at all.

    24. Absolutely amazing trilogy from start to finish. Humane characters against a mystical pseudo-religious background, bound together in incredibly strong writing.

    25. Awesome and unique saga. The grandfather of Sci-Fi, that’s still relevant today. I’m sorry to leave the world of Paul Muad’Dib on Arrakis.
