The troubles begin when stewardship of Arrakis is transferred by the Emperor from the Harkonnen Noble House to House Atreides. The Harkonnens don't want to give up their privilege, though, and through sabotage and treachery they cast young Duke Paul Atreides out into the planet's harsh environment to die. There he falls in with the Fremen, a tribe of desert dwellers who become the basis of the army with which he will reclaim what's rightfully his. Paul Atreides, though, is far more than just a usurped duke. He might be the end product of a very long-term genetic experiment designed to breed a super human; he might be a messiah. His struggle is at the center of a nexus of powerful people and events, and the repercussions will be felt throughout the Imperium.

I wish the book was a little bit bigger in size, but otherwise it is great. As for the story, it is awesome.Published 2 days ago by Bojana Zivadinovic
Thoroughly enjoyable. A must if you are a sci-fi fan. Herbert does a great job creating this story set in the distant future, where Earth is more of a myth to the current humans. Read morePublished 2 days ago by ksgaez
