Praise for Dune
“I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings.”—Arthur C. Clarke
“It is possible that Dune is even more relevant now than when it was first published.”—The New Yorker
“An astonishing science fiction phenomenon.”—The Washington Post
“One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”—Chicago Tribune
“Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.”—Robert A. Heinlein
“Herbert’s creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction.”—Louisville Times
From the Back Cover
Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family -- and would 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.

From cover to cover it is interesting and exciting. There is a reason it is hailed as such a timeless story, and I implore that you find the time to experience it for yourself.
The plot is reasonably simple, interactions transparent, but there is a ton of wisdom in every other sentence. Hubert snuck in pithy statements left and right to complement the story that unfolded.
Brilliant book and worth rereads in the future.
Full disclaimer here: this is a long book. But, the writing definitely keeps you engaged and there is no filler; there is a reason why this book is long. Once you finish the book you'll understand what I'm talking about.
As a side note, I am not sure what happened with David Lynch's adaptation of Dune. BUT, if it's true that Denis Villeneuve is being slated to make the next film adaptation of Dune then I'll be first in line to get tickets.
If you want to be challenged give this book a good long read, by you might need to read it in bits if you want to read other things as well. There is so much in these pages.
