A-Z Challenge Dune

D is for Dune by Frank Herbert

Yes, we’ve read ALL the books and watched the movie. In this case, the book is better just because of the details missed in the movie. Frank had a masterful way of writing that couldn’t be captured on film. Will Hollywood try again? We hope so.

Novel 1965 by Frank Herbert

Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides—who would become known as Muad’Dib—and of a great family’s ambition to 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.






Are we the only ones who haven’t seen the new movie? Do we dare?

  1. Awesome!

    1. Thanks for coming by Tammy!

  2. Add this to the list of things I also haven’t read/seen, but who knows — maybe they’ll make a new adaptation I finally read/see one of these days. 🙂

    1. I would say it’s a classic. A very different kind of world so the books are hard to replicate. I’d start there if you want our recommendation.
