NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE directed by Denis Villeneuve, starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Chang Chen, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem.

Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time.

Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. 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. 

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.


  • Amazing Sci-Fi

    By Zlabby
    The flagship novel for sci-fi readers all around the world that is strikingly foreshadowing our own future on its current path. A must read for sci-fi/ fantasy fans alike. Lets hope the films live up to the hype. One thing I’d like to see is the ability to change the book cover back to the one from the set so that my collection looks complete but that’s a personal complaint *cough* Apple *cough*
  • One Star for Book One

    By Josey86
    This book... was. I’m not even sure what to do with this book. There are three “books” within this tome. They all seem to be three completely different stories, with totally different feels to them, with an unclear time difference between the second and third. The first book is really good. The characters are likeable. The intrigue found within the world built there is great. Unfortunately, from the beginning of book two, the story goes quickly downhill and become a hot mess.
  • Great Story - anti-Blackness present, however

    By Joseph596
    A very excellently dealt story. I’ve definitely learned a lot after reading this book and I know that it will remain with me forever. But, I simply cannot discard the anti-Blackness present in this book. It’s sort of shameful to run into every now and then.

    Crushed this book. Couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait for the movie to ruin it.
  • A must read

    I didn’t know what’s to expect with Dune so all I can say is this: I could not put it down.
  • As good as they said.

    A beautiful gift of a story within a story. Literary story telling.
