1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the Gollancz edition
Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2018
Don't buy the Gollancz edition, see attached images. I stuck it out for about 100 pages but now I'm seeking a refund or exchange for a different edition. There are many problems with the version from Gollancz, namely:

- The text is blurry and blotchy, very difficult to read without very bright light. Normal text sometimes looks italicized, and it's hard to tell when certain passages were meant to be italicized or not

- The margins are terrible. The text goes almost all the way into the binding, so you have to really pull the pages apart to be able to read it. There is a lot of extra margin on the outside of the pages... if they just moved the text closer to the outside of the book, it would be fine...

- There are some bad typos. Normally a typo is not a big deal because you can tell what it was supposed to say, but Dune contains so much unique language and fantasy elements that it's impossible to know sometimes... it could be a typo or it could be a new word?
