Book 1, Dune
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
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.
Just a great book. Excellent format.
Such a 60's book
Best read while stoned so you don't recognize how plodding, uninteresting, and transparent it is.
This could only have been a best seller in the 60's. Far out dude!
If not the the best Science Fiction novel ever written, undoubtedly one of the best. Frank Herbert turns religion, ecology, mysticism, politics, power and greed all on their collective ears. The characters are powerfully intelligent and the plot is forever changing and broad in it's scope. Was Mr. Herbert on the spice when he wrote this? Absolutely amazing.
